100 Must-Read Books Featuring Fantastical Creatures

"What is a fantastical creature? I choose to define it as any creature that does not exist in reality, only in the minds of the imaginative and on the pages of fantasy novels everywhere. For the purposes of this list, I chose to avoid titles that geared towards sci-fi or horror and tried to stick with supernatural and fantasy titles. These are tales and bestiaries featuring creatures like unicorns (WHY IS THIS CATEGORY SO VERY WHITE?!?), fairies, genies, gnomes, dragons, vampires, shapeshifters, and other not-quite-humans."
