Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Hi everyone! Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday. Today’s Top Ten is pretty fun: choose books you would teach in a course. The course I would teach would be YA Fantasy, since I have such a deep love for it. Fantasy is an umbrella term for a number of sub genres, such as Epic Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, etc. It’s hard to pick just ten books for a course focused on the topic, but I did choose what I though were great books in YA fantasy and here they are:

1. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Fey and Humans: combating with speciesism 

2. Eragon by Christoper Paolini

Learn about Dragons, their intense bond with Riders and how they save the world together.

3. The Naming by Alison Croggon

Names and the meanings behind them are important, which is obvious from this title.

4. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

With magic comes the art of illusion, both physically and psychologically.

5. The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine

Strongest magic: the bond between those we love.

6. Born at Midnight by C.C Hunter

Come to a world where you leave everything behind, including what you knew about yourself.

7. Shadowland by Meg Cabot

Why do gifts = fighting for the greater good?

8. Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter

The challenge of balancing normalcy with your magical legacy. 😉

9. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

Werewolves and human cohabitation: how they survive each other

10. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

Angels, humans, and the Purpose between them.

Well, that my Top Ten! Recognize any of these books? Do you agree that they should be on the syllabus or not?  Feel free to leave comments about it below. By the way, I would love to hear about your Top Ten this week! Have fun and keep reading!
