1. What is your fantasy origin story? (The first fantasy you read) The first fantasy I read was Wizard’s First Rule by Terry Goodkind. I was on a road trip with my husband back when we were in high school and he was reading this book and I started reading over his shoulder and wanted to read it as soon as he was done.

2. If you could be the hero in a fantasy novel, who would be the author, and what’s one trope you’d insist be in the story? I would want Juliet Marillier to write my story because I love her fairy tale like stories and I would want an enemies to lovers trope just like she did for Liadan and Bran.

3. What is a fantasy series you’ve read this year, that you want more people to read? The Others by Anne Bishop. Its such a unique take on shifters its a great Urban fantasy series!

4. What is your favorite fantasy subgenre? Urban fantasy, it’s my go to! I love Anne Bishop, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, Jeaniene Frost, JR Ward, Nalini Singh.

5. What subgenre have you not read much from? Grimdark, Im not sure I have ever read any from this subgenre.

6. Who is one of your auto-buy fantasy authors? Juliet Marillier, Nalini Singh, Lynsay Sands, Anne Bishop and Ilona Andrews.

7. How do you typically find fantasy recommendations?  I have some friends and youtubers that I follow and will take their recommendations but I have become a lot more picky about the fantasy I read as I get older.

8. What is an upcoming fantasy release you’re excited for? Ruby Fever the new Ilona Andrews, the next Rebecca Ross book A Fire Endless and Storm Echo by Nalini Singh.

9. What is one misconception about fantasy you would like to lay to rest? That fantasy is not just YA books. Most of what I see recommended is YA fantasy and there is so much more to the genre than just that.

10. If someone had never read a fantasy before and asked you to recommend the first 3 books that come to mind, what would those recommendations be? Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh, this series is a lot of fun and the world building is fantastic but not overly complicated. Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews, this was my first Urban Fantasy series and it is still a favorite! Kate is such a badass! Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier, this is a fairy tale retelling set in ancient Ireland and Juliet is a master story teller. I can never recommend this series enough!

11. Who is the most recent fantasy reading content creator you came across that you’d like to shoutout? Kristen Kraves Books!

  1. You are so sweet! I am so happy you did this tag!

    I have had quite a few friends recommend Juliet Marillier to me recently! I think this is a sign I need to read one of her novels. Any recommendations on where to start?

    I also really need to read Rebecca Ross. I have a feeling I will love her stuff!
