Read-Alikes for ‘The Familiar’ by Leigh Bardugo | LibraryReads

The Familiar

Bardugo (Hell Bent) masterfully weaves magical realism with historical fiction and romance, which makes this book impossible to put down. Great for fans of Rebecca Ross, Heather Fawcett, and Holly Black.

Of Starlight and Midnight

This spin-off of Kuivalainen’s “Firebird Faerie Tales” is best for those who’ve enjoyed the previous books in that series.

Fairy Fantasy | Two Novels Featuring Characters from the Fae Realm


Emily Wilde’s Map of the Otherlands

In this historical fantasy of manners, Fawcett brings readers back to a beautifully atmospheric world in which faeries exist in the regular human realm. Recommend to fans of Marie Brennan’s A Natural History of Dragons and R.F. Kuang’s Babel.

The Kingdom of Sweets: A Novel of the Nutcracker

In this stand-alone novel, Johansen (“Queen of the Tearling” series) writes a beautifully twisted version of The Nutcracker, exploring the nature of revenge and its costs in horror-tinged fantasy. Recommend to fans of V.E. Schwab and Hannah Whitten.


Expertly told through a series of journal entries, emails, texts, and excerpts from Tobin’s novel, Frey’s (The Future Is Yours) book weaves a gripping, suspenseful narrative that flows well, even in this unique format. A blend of thriller and fantasy that’s perfect for fans of TV’s Stranger Things.
