Feature Follow Friday: Back-List Book Recommendations


Feature Follow Friday is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee Alison Can Read. It's a way for bloggers and readers alike to make some new friends and gain some new followers as well. The point of this hop is to follow other bloggers. I follow you, you follow me.

Also, this week's featured bloggers are Pottermore Books and Julie & Rose, so make sure you check them out too.

While I do prefer GFC follows, if you would like to follow me via bloglovin/email/twitter etc, that's great too! Also, please leave a comment so I can follow you back!

Question of the week: Back-list Book Recommendations

Recommend some of your favourite back-list books - books that are at least a few years old (I'm thinking 5-10 years old rather than classics).
Some of my favourite books of all times are very well known such as the Lord of the Rings. And what's the point of recommending books that most of you book lovers have already read. So I thought I'll take this opportunity to highlight one of my favourite series that is a little less well known.

I have mentioned Jennifer Fallon before in my library haul when I discovered she came out with another trilogy that I haven't read yet called the Rift Runners Trilogy. One of my favourite fantasy trilogies is the Demon Child Trilogy by her, comprising of Medalon, Treason Keep and Harshini


If you are a fan of high fantasy, then you definitely have to try Jennifer Fallon's works. I'm always blown away by her ideas, story-telling and the way everything unfolds. If you like fantasy sagas and you are sick of LoTR rip-offs, then you'll love her works. While the Demon Child trilogy holds a special place in my heart, I also love her other series such as the Tide Lords quartet. 

Which books did you recommend this week? Leave a comment/link below and I'll be sure to check it out!

    1. They are definitely good! And there's a prequel series called the Hythrun Chronicles too. And the Tide Lord quartet contains an interesting concept that I really loved.

  16. I've not heard of any of Jennifer Fallon's books...but you had my at "high fantasy" haha! It's been a while since I've done much reading outside of YA fantasy, but I've been getting back into the swing of things lately, so I'll definitely be adding one of these trilogies to my TBR!

    1. Thanks Brandee. Jennifer Fallon is one of my all-time favourite fantasy authors, a bit unsure as to why she's not more well known. :)
