Its seems like everyone has a favourites list so why cant I? Below is a list of the best fantasy books that I have read or listened to in 2011. The list will also include Sci-Fi and Horror because lets face it they are both pretty much sub-genres of the entire Fantasy genre… 😉

I expect this list to chop and change quite a bit as the year rolls on. There are a number of highly anticipated books coming out this year plus a backlog of great books that I need to work my way through. The only book I expect to knock of Elantris for Top Fantasy Book 2011 is The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch (if it comes out this year…)

  1. Its certainly something that I will have to consider, I remember seeing you promote it earlier in the year and it looked intriguing.

    The problem is that I have such a big line-up of work that I feel like I will never get around to reading all the stuff I want to. After I finish with the latest two books from Tim Marquitz I’ve got Embassytown by China Mieville, The Dark Griffin by K J Taylor, a few vampire stories by Kathryn Meyer Griffin, and a bunch of other works.
