TTT: “Queen”ly Books

For more information on Top Ten Tuesday, click here.

I figure I should get back into the blogging business, and what better way than to get back on track with a Top Ten Tuesday list, amiright? This week, the topic is “Frequently Used Words in [_____] Titles” which made me think of the plethora of fantasy books I’ve seen lately that use “Queen” in their titles. So instead of highlighting ten words that get overused in titles, I decided to do ten books that have Queen in the title!

Ten Fantasy Books that use Queen in the Title

The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows – This is probably one of the books that’s been on my TBR for the longest time. I just…haven’t gotten to it yet?

The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi – Definitely one of the priority reads. I might even end up reading this for my and Meg’s Fableulous Retellings Podcast…

The Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice – Read this book years back when I still had a thing for Anne Rice vampires. Wasn’t as great as Interview with a Vampire, but it was still good.

The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa – I actually read the first book of the Iron Fey series, though to be honest, I couldn’t bring myself to read the rest.

Queen of Sorcery by David Eddings – Absolutely loved The Belgariad, so I’d recommend the series to high fantasy fans.

The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine – Another one that’s on my list to read. I’d given this to one of my voldies as a Christmas present, and she’d enjoyed it.

Trickster’s Queen by Tamora Pierce – I actually liked Trickster’s Choice, but I haven’t read the sequel. Wasn’t too interested in knowing what happened to some of the characters, really.

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard – The more I think about this book, the more I believe this was only “meh” for me.

The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen – Ugh. Sucky main character = nope.

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas – Enjoyed the first book a lot, but I haven’t honestly been catching up to this series. This is a favorite series of one of my voldies, though!

There are definitely more Queen-related titles out there, many of which are not fantasy books, but if I had to keep listing them, I’d never end this list!
