Top Five Friday? Start Reading Fantasy!

This week on Top Ten Tuesday Five Friday: Top 5 Books/Series I would give to readers who have never read YA Fanstasy.
I know, I know, *hides under table* I'm bending the rules a little, but I have so much stuff going on.
So here are a few books for anyone who wants to start reading more fantasy!

1. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare.
This is the series that introduced me to booktube, bookstagram, book-blogging, ect. It is my favourite series ever and I think that, if you haven't already read it, you will love it. The relationships between all the characters and the plots are all so complex and beautiful and just all round amazing. And the world building, which I think is one of the most important parts of a fantasy novel, is just perfect. I could write you an entire novel as to why you should read this series. Just trust me on this: You. Want. To. Read. It.
And when you've read it and you're in love and you just can't get enough, that's okay because there's more! You can read the companions, novellas, spin offs/sequels and watch the movie! Perfect right?!
(notice how bad I write when I'm this excited? xP )

2. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
Let me just let me just clear up one thing: this book is not cheesy. I know a lot of people don't like the covers or the movie, or maybe just compare this series to twilight. But it's actually a great series. If you're looking for a slightly easier read, then this is it. There's some romance, there's some vampire-ass-kicking and there's a whole lot of sass and humor.

3. Angelfall by Susan EE
Do not be fooled by the cute cover! This book is anything but cute. It basically
an Angel Apocalypse ..... it's also way cooler then it sounds. But if you enjoy Apocalypse/dystopia novels I suggest this one to you! This is another series that has incredible world building.

4. The Elementals series by Brigid Kemmerer
This series is not as popular as the others mentioned in this post, but is definitely still worth reading. I'm not going to give anything away because I don't want to spoil it, but the first book's Goodreads page is linked here if you want to take a look.

5. Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan
This is the perfect example of ''Don't judge a book by it's movie''. It's considered a middle grade book, but a lot of YA readers love this series. It's action packed, funny and has some romance.
