Hey Katie! My name is Rosalie and I'm from the Netherlands. I've been watching a few of your videos this past week and I'm inspired by all the different kind of books you recommend! I've mostly never heard about the books you mention and I'm super excited because these books sound so good! Loving your channel!

I love the magicians and I like the characters. Quentin is annoying, really annoying but I like it because is not the perfect character with more good qualities than bad ones the chosen one that is a really good person, I feel Quentin is real. Like someone who loves fantasy and science fiction and wants to live in a world like that and hates the real world. The characters seem real to me, like how real people are not all but some people. And the magic and the world it's so aahhh ❤❤❤❤❤ it's dark but very magical at the same time. The magicians is currently one of my favorite trilogies right now and everyone hates it or doesn't know it exist, but it doesn't matter I love it ❤❤❤ I love those books and I like Quentin.

Wow! You are the first person I've seen who has also read Seven Tears Into the Sea. I read it in high school and while I didn't love it, it was one of the first selkie stories I ever read.
My school library also had The China Garden. I probably picked it up several times but I never read it. I didn't know about the folklore elements so I think I'll see if I can find a copy to read now.

My favourite fantasy books are the Deltora Quest series. I first read them when I was around 13, and decided to pick them up and reread them over Christmas, and I'm so glad I did! The characters are great, there are so many amazing and creepy monsters and curses and scary locations. I expected to find them too childish, but they're surprisingly mature. The only downside is that they're all very short, and the author could have filled out the story a bit more to make them longer, but on the other hand they never drag, and they're never boring. They get progressivly better (the first few books are probably the weakest ones), and they are honestly some of the most intense and thrilling books I've ever read. I couldn't put them down and at one point ended up reading 500 pages in one sitting because I was so into it!

Thank you for such different recommendations! I haven't heard about many of those books 🙂

You could look into Mercedes Lackey's Elemental Magic series…the books are late Victorian/Edwardian Steampunk and they all feature a fairy tale adaption, most of them are pretty well done. (Didn't care much for 'Reserved for the cat' and 'From a high tower' which I was really disappointed in because Puss in Boots and Rapunzel were both favorite fairy tales when I was a kid.) For a more adultish feel of fairy tales, try the anthology series Ellen Watlow and Terri Windling, there are several…one of them is called Black Thorn, White Rose. The series came out several years ago, (Late 90's to mid 2000's.) But I thought most of the stories were pretty good. Some of them would qualify for erotica, but as a whole, I would not consider the series to be erotica. For another fantasy author: Charles de Lint. He writes mainly Urban Fantasy, usually does not adapt a fairy tale or myth to his work, with the exception of Jack and The Beanstalk, Charles's version is called Jack of Kinrowan and is quite different the original story. I have other suggestions, but I don't want to make this post novel length:)

Robert Carlson says:

You would probably really enjoy Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins! One of my favorites!

Dave Kane says:

Might I suggest you shift your focus from stories with female protagonists to stories written by female authors? I feel like the perspective is changed far more with the gender of the author than with the gender of the protagonist.

Paulína Martinková says:

The book you held up at the beginning, by Anne Bishop, is my all time favourite <3 It's really hard to get into, but it got so addicting later. I had to get the big bind up of all the books. And I'm planning to reread it.
Originally I got the book due to it's cover (the czech version) and I put it down for about two years, came back to it after reading Chronicles of Amber by Roger Zelazny (do recommend!) and I felt like carrying on with reading fantasy, so I grabbed this. And loved it!


Now I want to read Deathless, Seven Years into the Sea and The China Garden!!

It's so nice to see someone loving the Gemma Doyle trilogy. I still adore those books. So different, so good.
