5 Must-Read Book Series For Fantasy Lovers Looking To Escape To Another World
Start writing a post

Fantasy novels are definitely an acquired taste, but once you acquire that taste, it's hard to imagine reading anything else.

No matter what type of fantastical elements a fantasy book includes, they all serve the purpose of taking their readers to places they can only imagine and letting them experience elements of true magic in their finite pages.

These five book series surely do not disappoint in this regard.

1. The "Frostblood" Saga by Elly Blake

This series tells the story of Ruby, a 17-year-old fireblood girl who must hide her simmering power from the cruel frostblood ruling class.

Facing the dangers of mastering her fiery power as well as the need for revenge that plagues her every day, Ruby must face a world where fire and ice must come together to change the world as she knows it.

2. The "Iskari" Series by Kristen Ciccarelli

This series boasts deception, darkness, dragons, and a quick-witted, fierce protagonist that readers will be rooting for until the end. The latest book in the series was just published on November 12.

3. "The Sorcerer's Ring" series by Morgan Rice

Thor, a 14-year-old boy in the first book of this series, is determined to escape the cruel thumb of his father and three older brothers.

The only way he can do this is to join the King's Legion, the brave and fierce men protecting the kingdom.

Thor's destiny and the path he takes to achieve it will be far greater than he could've ever imagined.

4. "The Throne of Glass" series by Sarah J. Maas

Consisting of eight books altogether, the "Throne of Glass" series is definitely a time commitment for any reader.

These books are easy to fly through, however, as they are home to a clever, talented, and deathly protagonist.

This series will serve you plot twists in every direction and will leave you scrambling for the next book before you are barely done with the previous.

5. "Ash Princess" Trilogy by Laura Sebastian

The "Ash Princess" trilogy promises the last book of the three to come out in February 2020, but the first two have left readers eager for its release.

After her mother was murdered before her eyes, young Theodosia has been kept a prisoner in her own home by the very man who committed the act.

10 years pass, and Theo has had enough, willing to give up everything to save her people and her home.

While only a collection of five book series among thousands of others, these books embody what the fantasy genre is all about.

The authors responsible for them succeeded in creating stories to compel and enthrall their readers until the very last page.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

I Went To Disney For The First Time Since COVID-19 And It's Officially The Cleanest Place On Earth

I stopped focusing on the pandemic simply because, for the first time in months, I felt safe.

After a few months of self-quarantining, becoming suspicious of every cough, and blowing through masks like a medical school student, restrictions due to the pandemic are easing up a bit and businesses are warily reopening. While these public spaces may look the same on the outside, the way they function and operate is vastly different than a few months ago.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.
