Dealing with Dragons | Patricia C. Wrede
post image
Pickpick

“No proper princess would come out looking for dragons," Woraug objected.

"Well I'm not a proper princess then!" Cimorene snapped. "I make cherries jubillee and I volunteer for dragons, and I conjugate Latin verbs-- or at least I would if anyone would let me. So there!”

I‘ve had this book on my tbr list for a really long time, and I can‘t believe it‘s taken me this long to read it because I loved it and I need to read the rest of the series.

Fantastic as always. Why did I delay so long?

@DivaDiane I took your advice to heart! 😁

Schnoebs Idk if it‘s just me but I‘m so confused my here be dragons prompt. Is it just something with dragons in it? 1y
DuckOfDoom @Schnoebs yes! It is a reference to early mapmaking where there are assumed dragons or monsters in uncharted territory. Fantasy maps have adopted this as 'here be dragons' or'here be monsters' 1y
Schnoebs That‘s what I thought but I wasn‘t sure 😂 1y

Dragonflight | Anne McCaffrey

This was an enjoyable book - a notable entry in the dragon niche that I finally got around to. I'm glad I did! This book seems rather simple compared to some of the complex and edgy fantasy being written today, but deserves its place in the canon. Note: This is a safe pick for younger teens.

LadyZircon If you want a good dragon series, you should try the Temeraire series by Naomi Novik. I haven't finished the series itself but he holds a good place in my heart. :) 3y
lilredhen McCaffrey's Pern series was the first scifi I read outside Star Trek. It will always be one of my favorites. 3y
annahenke @LadyZircon I have read some of those! They're good, although I am more fond of her stand alone novel, Uprooted. 3y
LadyZircon @annahenke I haven't tried it yet though my cousin's boasted about it. :) 3y

Seraphina | Rachel Hartman

#HereBeDragons SERAPHINA is definitely my favourite fiction with dragons. This is not your same old, same old #fantasy. Hartman has really written dragons as their own species, with their own flaws and strengths, with their own culture and history. Seraphina, straddling both worlds as half human and half dragon, is a fascinating character just this side of un/likable.

Today *will* be the day I catch up with all the #photoadaynov16 prompts.

I read and loved this series in high school and college, and was sad when they didn't make all the movies into movies because the descriptions of all the dragons are friggin' amazing. However, I can't remember if these fall in the Tolkien/Rowling category of problematic faves for poor rep, so I guess I'll have to read them again to find out. #herebedragons

PurpleyPumpkin Great minds think alike! These were my picks as well for #herebedragons. 😉 3y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag Great covers 💜 3y

Woo 2 tags in one photo 👍 And one of my fave series! The first two were published in the '90s. Now I'm just waiting and waiting for the Winds of Winter....⌛️🤔

I like it when authors keep a bit of mystery, but I hope that Martin will also finish not only book 6 & 7, but also the planned novella about the Dance of the Dragons. I would love to see how the Tagaryens interacted with their dragons before they died out. #photoadaynov16 #herebedragons

#photoadaynov16 #day12 #herebedragons I'm a few days behind due to a very busy weekend so sorry in advance for the catch-up posts! This wasn't the best series of books BUT they do have several impressive looking dragons on the covers!
