The 100 Best Fantasy Novels of All Time by UNBOUND WORLDS

It was daunting, but we did it: a list of the one hundred best fantasy books of all time. What was our criteria? Well, we loved these these books and thought they deserved to be on the list. That's pretty much it. This list is totally subjective, and with a cut-off of one hundred books, we couldn't include all of the amazing fantasy tales out there. We hope you look through this list and agree with a lot of our picks, and that you also find some new stories to pick up. If there's anything we left out, please add it to the comments below — we'd love to see what books would be on your list!
