Winter of Epic Fantasy

Every winter becomes my “Winter of Epic Fantasy” as soon as the snow hits. I don’t really know why but the snow seems to set an even better mood for epic fantasy. Or maybe it’s just because I don’t want to go outside for as many hours as possible. Add being cuddled on the couch under mounds of blankets and my critters all around me and really why would I want to move?

The snow is holding out on me this year. We’ve had one dusting and it all melted by morning. But that doesn’t hold this girl back! I started anyway. I finally picked up the second book in the original Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. It’s been almost two years since I read the first book and absolutely loved it. Why did it take me so long to pick up the second?

I have this wonderful habit of starting a series and then starting another series and then starting another series. So my only reading goal for 2017 is finishing up some of those series and I’m getting a jump start on it.

So, since most of my favorite epic fantasy tales are 800+ pages long, I would be going pretty long in between posting book reviews. Luckily, I have two years worth of reviews that I’ve already done on Goodreads so I will share those while reading my epic monsters.

I encourage you, my dear book dragons, to spend the winter indulging in some epic fantasy as well. (It is after all, theĀ bestĀ genre.)

What epic fantasy series do you need to catch up on?
