Listened to this audiobook yesterday - it‘s only 4 hours - and it was so funny! I mean with a hero by the name of Hiccup, how could it not be. As part of his initiation to his Viking tribe, he has to capture and train a dragon. Loved his method. I laughed out loud at the antics of the Vikings and dragons. Scottish narrator was great! #101 #BookSpinBingo #21 #BFC21 #3 #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #28 #AwesomeAugust #ROYALREADATHON Mushu #HSREADATHON
The movie is one of my favorites for the sole reason that Toothless, at different times, reminds me of all my pets. I adore Toothless so I was excited for the original.
The movie is loosely, loosely based on the book. At first, I was disappointed. That isn't my Toothless, but Hiccup is the same boy who loves to study dragons. And if it wasn't for this book, I wouldn't have my Toothless.
I read this one back in November (and then proceeded to devour the whole series), and I absolutely loved it. I think this one, and all the other books, have so much heart amidst all the silly jokes and characters 💚 🐉
@TheAromaofBooks This was my November #doublespin for #bookspin 😊
The lightfury is finally finished! I crocheted the last pieces yesterday and then sewed it all together, which is not my favourite part. But I think it turned out well!
Plus: quick read, marginally entertaining.
Minus: I don‘t get why “boy books” have to be gross. I think it‘s insulting.
So, overall not a fan, but I was told by the young man who lent us these books that the first is something to get through so you can enjoy the rest of the series. I will try the second book on that recommendation. I doubt the kiddo will enjoy them but I‘ll let her have a go.

1) one of my favourite dragons is Toothless. (The top pic is the scary realistic version of Toothless from a dreamworld exhibit I went to in Melbourne).
2) Since Toothless is my favourite I love the How to Train your Dragon movies 🥰 and I also like Game of Thrones, and Shrek. These are the only things I can think of dragons in right now!
Listened to this one again, this time with my daughter. David Tennent is such a fun narrator. I‘ve never watched the movie, but I‘m 100% sure the book is better.
In a time when dragons are disappearing, Hiccup recounts his earlier years when he had to capture his dragon and learn how to train in. I listened to this on audiobook and had an absolute blast with it. The best part for me though was the level of sass that Toothless possessed throughout the entire book. Very entertaining, comical and good natured.

Listened to the audiobook because the sixth-graders are reading it in ELA. It was a lot of fun—though nothing like the movie. David Tennant‘s narration was completely delightful (though I could have done without Toothless‘ stammer, which was unfortunate). Overall, it was a great production and story. #LibrariansofLitsy
I‘ve seen – and loved – all the movies and heard only good things about the audio books. And I was not disappointed. Even though it is very different from the movies, I had an insta love.
I adore Hiccup and Toothless‘s relationship, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that Toothless has his own voice.
The narration of this audio is excellent.

This was a cute story. I‘ll be honest, I would never have read or listened to it if it hadn‘t been read by David Tennant.
My one complaint is the audiobook had music in it and it was SO MUCH LOUDER than the actual story. When I had my headphones in, it hurt my ears.
Glad to have finished 1 Audiobook already! #bookfitnesschallenge Round 2 #SmallSteppers
I did forget to stretch before my walk this morning, but I remembered cool down stretch!
I need some Audiobook recommendations!
I‘ve been struggling to find an audiobook that I can get into from my TBR. I don‘t like long, slow audiobooks because they can‘t keep my attention.
I‘ve decided to try to break my slump by listening to children‘s books read by great narrators (David Tennant & Jim Dale)!
Let me know if you have any recommendations! I need to listen to at least 5 audiobooks for the next 6 weeks! 😂
Finished part one of the series for #dewesreadathon
It was a very quick and cute read, I‘ve enjoyed it even though I was surprises that it had about nothing in common with the film. 4/5⭐️
I did sleep quite a long time and now I have plans (which is why I had to sleep) so I guess I will try to read 12 hours for the #readathon which is a good time for a first readathon I guess😊 I just finished my 10th hour, 2 more to go💪🏼 but first:sports.
Something light before going to bed. I‘ve just passed my 9th hour of reading. It is almost 2am and as I have plans for tomorrow I‘m afraid I should go to sleep soon... #readathon
Since how to train your Dragon-the hidden world is coming out soon I thought I would read at least the first book. It's very different from the movie (more than I usually find) but still very entertaining and funny. The illustrations are quite goofy which makes the book even better. Its light and easy which is just what I was looking for after reading The Book Theif.
I was trying to take a photo of the book with the bulgogi kimbap that this boy is eating for lunch when he decided to photobomb. He wants you to know that he really likes the book but that the movie is better than the book because “movie Toothless is better”.
Since I couldn't read due to my migraine, I finally watched How To Train Your Dragon for the first time and it was so good! It didn't really help my head any, but it was enjoyable. Hoping I'll wake up with my headache gone tomorrow and I can actually read some.
I thought I'd go with a black and white colour scheme.
I have had black ice cream. It's okay. 🍦
Those are SK books with cool covers. Cujo is on my TBR.📖
Then there's a silk saree.
I so want a Night Fury stuff toy!! 📽🎬
@JoScho This was fun! I wanted a black glitter background for you but it didn't come through on my app.
