Top Ten Tuesday [18]

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish that allows bloggers to share their top ten lists for that week’s topics

Top Ten Books to Read if You Like Tamora Pierce

1 - Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas

This one has a girl disguising herself as a boy for school (a la Alanna) as well as crazy awesome magic (a la Tris)

2 - The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley

Bad-ass female protagonist along with dragons and magic.

3 - Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

Students learning magic, as well as three very different main characters (very Circle of Magic)

4 - Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

This deals with non-human creatures and humans (and not-so-humans) getting mixed up in it.  So, sort of like the Immortals series.

5 - The Queen's Theif by Megan Whalen-Turner

The setting of this one is a lot like Tortall and Gen reminds me a bit of George.

6 - Sabriel by Garth Nix

Strong female protagonist who undergoes a journey to the underworld.  I got a little bit of an Immortals feel to this one, but with the underworld instead of the Realms of the Gods as well as a Trickster's Choice feel.

7 - Crown Duel / Court Duel by Sherwood Smith

It has the same Tortall feel that makes for an awesome setting of a fantasy book

8 - The Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia Wrede

A bit of a Daine feel to these.  Minus the creepy relationship with Numair.

9 - Unicorn Chronicles by Bruce Coville

His magical world is very Tamora Pierce-esq.

10 - Take a Theif by Mercedes Lackey

This one has Briar written all over it.  I actually think that's the main reason why I loved this book so much, Skif is so much like Briar.
