Despite my complete geeking out over GoT/ASOIF and a few other franchises etc., I’m not very well versed in fantasy at all. I used to be massively prejudiced against fantasy when I was younger and it’s caused me to miss out on a lot of great stuff, I’m sure. Like, I obviously read the LOTR books religiously around the time when the movies came out (even The Silmarillion!) and have read most of Neil Gaiman’s stuff and a few other things. Read Narnia when I was quite young, probably way overdue a revisit come to think of it.
Anyway, I was hoping you lot could help me out with some recommendations of places to start looking. Please take the time to tell me why I should read it rather than just posting only the title and leaving again, as otherwise it’s very likely to just disappear in between other posts.
I should also say that I don’t normally read much in my everyday life these days (more when I’m on holiday etc), so it might take me a while to actually check out any recommendations. But that doesn’t mean they won’t be very much appreciated!
