If a day reality is just too mundane for you and you would like to flee into a world of make-believe, you would like to flick through the list of a number of the highest fantasy books many of which are adapted into movies that have raked in millions at the box office round the world. Some leading samples of these being JK Rowling's Harry Potter series that has kept worldwide readers and audiences enthralled for nearly a decade. The Lord of the Rings series penned by J R R Tolkien also falls within the same category, to not forget The Wizard of Oz which will still captivate the eye of young and old.

In fact, fantasy books and horror books also as their silver screen adaptations also find many takers all across the world. As an example, who can forget The Dark Tower Series written by Stephen King which will scare the daylights of anyone? That apart, the War of the Worlds written by HG Wells, which was one among the primary literary works supported a fictional conflict between humankind and an alien race sparked off a completely new genre of fantasy literature. Another popular fantasy book that Wells has got to his credit is that the machine that has inspired many movie adaptations.

Arguably, one among the simplest samples of a make-believe world created by a fantasy book is Alice in Wonderland. Its many memorable characters were recently delivered to life on the large screen under the helm of director Tim Burton. One among his favorite actors - Johnny Depp slipped easily into the character of The Mad Hatter, while Helena Bonham Carter played the role of the Red Queen to a T . Hathaway essayed the role of the White Queen while the name part was played by Mia Wasikowska.

Some other fantasy books that feature in most the highest 50 or 100 list of this genre of literature are Black Jewels and Ephemera series by Anne Bishop, Dragon Prince by Melanie Rawn and therefore the Glass Books of the Dream Eaters by Gordon Dahlquist. These fall within the category of romantic fantasy. However, if you're trying to find some slipstream fantasy, you'll devour a replica of City of Saints and Madmen by Jeff VanderMeer or Book of the New Sun, Wizard Knight by Gene Wolfe. Whichever of the above-mentioned fantasy books you select to read, be able to enjoy a mixture of something unique and unreal.
