Fantasy Books I Want To Read In 2020

After my TBR post on sci-fi books, it is time to take stock of all the fantasy books that are lying on my shelves unread.

Here is a list of fantasy series that I hope to get to in 2020 –

I have been bad at completing series of late so my goal for 2020 is to finish some series that I started.

  • Riyria Revelations by Michael J Sullivan
  • Magician series by Raymond E Feist
  • Broken Earth trilogy by N K Jemisin

I hope to finish all these three series. I might have to reread the first books in these series since I do not remember anything from them.

I want to start and complete some series that I have been interested in. I have been picking standalone books mostly so want to prioritize series.

  1. Steven Erikson’s Malazan Book of the Fallen – I have heard great reviews about this series and I want to at least read the first book in 2020.
  2. Mark Lawrence’s Red Sister – I tried his other grimdark series and did not like it. But I heard this book and series is great with kickass nuns.
  3. V.E Schwab’s A darker shade of magic – I am a fan of her other books so have high expectations from this series.
  4. John Gwynne’s Faithful and Fallen series – I love ASOIAF series and many people have told me that this series resembles that a lot so I am hopeful that this will also end up as a favorite series of mine.
  5. Ed McDonald’s Blackwing – I got attracted to this series mostly because of the stunning UK covers. I have read first few chapters and from what I read, I have a feeling I will love this series.
  6. Brandon Sanderson – I have only read Mistborn by him and even though I own so many books of his, I have not yet read his most ambitious works. All his books are chunky with loads of world building and that intimidates me. I have high expectations from his books looking at the fan following he has.

What fantasy books are you planning to read in 2020?

Have you read any of these series?

  1. Ooof, I need to finish the Broken Earth trilogy as well – and like you, I might just go back and reread book one. I’ve read Red Sister and really enjoyed that, so hoping to continue that series as well! My big priority for 2020 is to start and finish The Tethered Mage series by Melissa Caruso, I’ve heard nothing but good!

  2. I also have Malice on my TBR! And as for the Broken Earth trilogy – I really hope you manage to get to it as The Fifth Season has to be one of my favourite reads of all time. An extraordinary read…


  3. Just finished the fifth Malazan book last month, and I plan to finish the remaining 5 next year. I really recommend the series but keep in mind that Gardens of the Moon is considered by many fans as their least favorite. If you love it then that’s good since all the other books are better, but if it wasn’t that good for you then don’t worry and try your best to continue.
    I personally have enjoyed all the book I’ve read and its my all time favorite fantasy series.
