The Fantasy Project – My 101 TBR Fantasy Books

Hosted by Michelle of The True Book Addict, The Fantasy Project is a 10-year long challenge reminiscent of the Classics Club challenge, only longer and with fantasy books. A few years ago the members of the 101 Fantasy Reading Challenge voted on their favourite fantasy books to create a list of the 101 best fantasy books. For this challenge you can either read those 101 – or create your own list out of the 813 total nominated books. To find out the specific rules for the challenge, make sure to check out the sign up page.

For my challenge, I decided to get more well-read all round. The list contains (from top to bottom) high fantasy, urban fantasy/paranormal romance, and young-adult books. As you might notice, they’re all series. I’m going to use The Fantasy Project to finally dig into all these amazing series, and have a drive to actually finish the series instead of just reading the first book (which I’m very prone to). Books with an * after the author’s name are books I added myself, and that aren’t mentioned in the list.

My goal will be to read these 101 books by August 2023. However, I don’t think they will take me nearly that long, making my unofficial goal to finish them by August 2018.
