Top Ten Quest Books

Top Ten Tuesday

Thanks to the gals of The Broke and The Bookish for hosting this meme every week!

So the topic this week is actually books to do with travel in some way, but I read so much fantasy that quest books are the best “travel” related topic I got ;-). Some of these might be a bit of a stretch too, hehe.

Traveling In Awesome Ways

Through the Door by Jodi McIsaac persistence of vision Tournament of Chance The Lost Hero Stormdancer

One of the best parts of sci-fi and fantasy stories are that there are so many travel options that aren’t available in our world! Through the Door has magical doors that can take you anywhere, Persistence of Vision and Tournament of Chance have time-travel, and The Lost Hero and Stormdancer have riding magical beasts :D (definitely my favorite way of travel!).

Good Ol’ Fashion Walking Travel

above world poison by bridget zinn Through the Ever Night The Dragon Reborn The Stepsister Scheme

There is also of course a lot of walking when you have an important quest and no other form of transportation. Sometimes you can find a horse to do the walking for you of course :D.

Have you read any good quest books lately? There is just something so epic about journeying to a new land for an inevitably noble goal, right??

  1. Oh wow, I’ve only read Poison out of all these. But I own a copy of Through the Ever Night, so soon I hope?! heh Stormdancer and The Lost Hero are on the wishlist with Above World having recently been added too ;)

    I think that’s a nice take on travel! It’s still travel, after all. :D I’d have probably done a similar thing if I’d managed to get a post out.

  3. Carmen Brack says:

    When I looked through my fantasy books on goodreads I also noticed that many invloved quest travel, so yay for this post! I haven’t read any of the books you chose, but Stormdancer and Under the Never Sky are on my list :)
    I’ve read quite a lot of quest books as a teen but those were often by German authors and probably haven’t been translated into English :/
    Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Any list with Percy Jackson on it is automatically the best list EVA!! Although I sometimes found The Lost Hero difficult to read because there were so many references to Percy, but no actual Percy-ness. The Son of Neptune TOTALLY made up for that :) Great list!

    • Very true, haha. I also had read the Percy books ages ago and so didn’t remember everything that had happened D:

  5. Yayyy, Poison! That was such a cute book. I was almost going to include it… but obviously ended up not, heh. And yours is the second list I’ve seen The Stepsister Scheme on… that sounds like a really fun read, lol.

  6. You always have the most awesome books on your list. Some of these are new to me -thank you!

    Also, I love how you changed it up a bit, it would be a hard topic for a fantasy reader unless you switched it up.

    This weeks topic was so hard! So I just decided not to do No change from usual lately though. I’m hoping I get back to blogging shortly!
