‘Wait’ll they get aload of me’

This week over at the Broke and the Bookish the Top Ten Tuesday topic for discussion is:

Ten Books To Read If You Like urban fantasy:

  1. The Mercy Thompson series by Patrician Briggs – all sorts of things going on in this series.
  2. The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher – a Chicago based private investigator who just so happens to be a wizard
  3. The Trueblood (Sookie Stackhouse) books by Charlaine Harris – lots of vampires
  4. The Generation V Series by M L Brennan – more vampires
  5. The Parasol Protectorate by Gail Carriger – a bit of everything, a book of manners, some steampunk
  6. The Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne – a druid and his trusty sidekick – or dog – Oberon
  7. Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch – I have a LOT of catching up with this series – but even so…
  8. The Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead – okay, there’s a pattern developing here!
  9. The Miriam Black series by Chuck Wendig – no vampires!  Excellent series
  10. The fey series by Holly Black – Tithe, Valiant and Ironside

I did have a few more but thought I’d stop!

    Don’t know any of those but they sound fun.

    Oooh a few I haven’t heard of! I do like Rivers of London, only three books in though! I wonder, have you ever read any of the Felix Castor novels by Mike Carey (of Girl with all the Gifts fame)? They’re in a similar vein to The Dresden Files but involve ghosties and exorcisms and are a lot of fun.

      No. Haven’t heard of those but will go and take a look. Thanks. 😄

      It’s a top series. I’m going to be perfectly honest and just say that the first isn’t the best, but it’s a set up for the series so you expect that a little bit. If you fancy an urban fantasy with a bit of everything going on, plenty of action and a bit of fun then the Dresden Files are definitely it.

        Yeeeah, i read some of the negative reviews on goodreads and have been extremely put off. I’m currently experiencing the same kind of issues while reading the first discworld book, so am feeling unlikely to give it a go 😦
