Books recommendations for LOTR fans

Welcome back. This week, I am recommending 8 books if you enjoyed reading/watching the Lord of Rings.

Comment down below what book recommendations I should do next.

 

A Wizard of Earthsea

I actually found this from a book recommendation for the LOTR. A win-win.

Synopsis: Ged, the greatest sorcerer in all Earthsea, was called Sparrowhawk in his reckless youth.
Hungry for power and knowledge, Sparrowhawk tampered with long-held secrets and loosed a terrible shadow upon the world. This is the tale of his testing, how he mastered the mighty words of power, tamed an ancient dragon, and crossed death’s threshold to restore the balance.

Lord Brocktree (Redwall #13)

Synopsis: Salamandastron, under the guardianship of old Lord Stonepaw, is under threat from an enemy of immense and terrifying power. Ungatt Trunn, the wildcat who can make the stars fall from the sky, has attacked with his Blue Hordes and is determined that the fortress should be his. The mountain’s defenses are weak and it seems that nothing can stand in his way. Nothing, that is, but the badger Lord Brocktree, who is drawn to Salamandastron by an undeniable sense of destiny. But if he is to rescue the mountain from Trunn and his verminous hordes, he must gather about him an army capable of defeating them in battle.

The Ruins of Gorlan (Ranger’s Apprentice #1)

This is the first book of the series. It a great read for all ages. This is another book I recommended on reading the LOTR.

Synopsis: They have always scared him in the past — the Rangers, with their dark cloaks and shadowy ways. The villagers believe the Rangers practice magic that makes them invisible to ordinary people. And now 15-year-old Will, always small for his age, has been chosen as a Ranger’s apprentice. What he doesn’t yet realize is that the Rangers are the protectors of the kingdom. Highly trained in the skills of battle and surveillance, they fight the battles before the battles reach the people. And as Will is about to learn, there is a large battle brewing. The exiled Morgarath, Lord of the Mountains of Rain and Night, is gathering his forces for an attack on the kingdom. This time, he will not be denied…

The Black Cauldron by Lloyd Alexander

Synopsis: Taran, the Assistant Pig-Keeper, and his friends are led into a mortal struggle with Arawn and his deathless warriors. Taran must wrest the black cauldron from them, for it is the cauldron that gives them their evil strength. But can he withstand the three enchantresses, who are determined to turn him and his companions into toads? Taran has not foreseen the awful price he will have to pay in his defense of Prydain…

King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table by Roger Lancelyn Green

Synopsis: King Arthur is one of the greatest legends of all time. From the magical moment when Arthur releases the sword in the stone to the quest for the Holy Grail and the final tragedy of the Last Battle, Roger Lancelyn Green brings the enchanting world of King Arthur stunningly to life.

Synopsis: Once, in a cottage above the cliffs on the Dark Sea of Darkness, there lived three children and their trusty dog Nugget. Janner Igiby, his brother Tink, their crippled sister Leeli are gifted children as all children are, loved well by a noble mother and ex-pirate grandfather.

The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

Of course, I pick this book series. One: Lewis and Tolkien were best friends. Two: It’s a great series.

Synopsis: NARNIA…the land beyond the wardrobe, the secret country is known only to Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy…the place where the adventure begins. Lucy is the first to find the secret of the wardrobe in the professor’s mysterious old house. At first, no one believes her when she tells of her adventures in the land of Narnia. But soon Edmund and then Peter and Susan discover the Magic and meet Aslan, the Great Lion, for themselves. In the blink of an eye, their lives are changed forever.

Eragon (The Inheritance Cycle #1)

This book has been criticized for copying Tolkien. And of course, I am going to add it to the list. It’s a great book. Don’t allow people’s review avoid reading this beauty.

Synopsis: Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds. Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders?

That’s all folks. See ya next week! 🙂

 

Literary Dinner Party Tag

1. One Character Who Likes To Cook: I choose Samwise Gamgee because who doesn’t love potatoes. XD

What LOTR fan can't resist the song they made about this? My Favorite part!!

2. One Character Who Has Money To Fund The Party: I loved reading The Selection by Kiera Cass so I choose Prince Maxon. He is royalty which means he has money.

3.One Character Who Might Cause a Scene:  I recently finished reading The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find. I can honestly see Newt Scamander causing a scene if one of his creatures in his case escaped. It would hilarious but devastating for the rest of the party.

4. One Character Who Is Funny/Amusing: One of my favorite Harry Potter female characters is Luna Lovegood. She is so quirky and smart.

5. One Character Who Is Super Social/Popular: Some would not consider Cisco Ramon (The Flash) as a social butterfly or popular. I would just invite him because he knows the best fictional references. Or because he is my favorite character out of the show.

Appreciate Cisco Ramon everyone! | Community Post: 24 Times Cisco Ramon From

6. One Villain: Although she is not like this in the books, I choose Morgana from Merlin. She is powerful, confident, and loyal. Besides I need another woman in the party so I am not overwhelmed by boys.

Katie McGrath (Morgana Le Fay)

7. One Couple (doesn’t have to be romantic): I am a Tolkien addict. My life is Tolkien based. I love Middle Earth. I would invite Faramir and Eowyn because they are favorite OTP (One True Pairing).

One of the most beautiful lines in the book. I have ALWAYS loved the two of them. After all that Faramir went through, and all the friendzoning Aragorn did to Eowyn, I was always so glad they found each other.

8. One Hero/Heroine: Narina has been a big part of my life. I would choose Aslan since he does represent Christ. He would be a important person to listen to in a conversation.

Favorite quote. Possibly ever but for sure from the Narnian series.

9. One Under appreciated Character: The antihero of Harry Potter is Severus Snape. I have always liked Snape. He promised to protect the students during the battle of Hogwarts. He is the Half-Blooded Prince. He would be a nice addition to the party.

Severus Snape

10. A Character of Your Own Choosing: I would invite Mr. Darcy because who doesn’t like him. 🙂 Mr. Darcy and Snape would have deep conversations with one another.  Besides Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite Jane Austen books.
