A.K.A. me gushing about my favorite fantasy novels
Don’t look now, but I’m actually doing a tag I’ve been tagged for. *gasp!*
Dani at Mousai Books tagged me for this one back in June, and honestly I had plum forgotten about it until I was going through my list today. It appears as though it’s a rapid-fire, don’t-think-too-hard-about-your-answers sort of tag, which should be great fun! If you don’t follow Dani you should, because she writes EXCELLENT reviews. 🙂

City of Brass! Y’all, if you haven’t read the Daevabad books you NEED TO!!! And book three is coming out soooooon. This series is so unique, and there’s so much juicy court drama. I love how it presents different perspectives, especially in regards to religion. Plus it’s SO FREAKING EXCITING.

It’s not much of a secret around here that I absolutely love dragons. Any type of dragon! Big dragons, small dragons, tame dragons, wild dragons, evil dragons, dragons that fly, dragons that don’t, fire breathing dragons, gold hoarding dragons, intelligent dragons, non-talking dragons, I pretty much love them all. My favorite dragon books usually present dragons in a new or different way from the books I’m used to reading.
So without further ado, and in no particular order, here are some of my favorite books about or featuring dragons.
His Majesty’s Dragon
An alternate history of the Napoleonic Wars where in addition to the army and navy, each side has an aeronautical division.
“When HMS Reliant captures a French frigate and seizes the precious cargo, an unhatched dragon egg, fate sweeps Captain Will Laurence from his seafaring life into an uncertain future – and an unexpected kinship with a most extraordinary creature. Thrust into the rarified world of the Aerial Corps as master of the dragon Temeraire, he will face a crash course in the daring tactics of airborne battle. For as France’s own dragon-borne forces rally to breach British soil in Bonaparte’s boldest gambit, Laurence and Temeraire must soar into their own baptism of fire.”
If you enjoy historical fiction and fantasy, this mash-up is absolutely brilliant! Continue reading “Favorite Dragon Books”
This list got off to a very slow start as I was re-reading a lot at the beginning of the year, and then I read several newish books that I didn’t really care for. While not all the books on this list are new (or even written in this century!), here are the 10 books I most enjoyed reading in 2017. Continue reading “Top 10 of 2017”
Thanks to the Orangutan Librarian for tagging me in this one! I’m really intrigued by this tag for a couple of reasons. First of all, the zombie apocalypse, obviously. Second, it’s different than the usual book tag. It kind of resembles all those stupid things my friends paste on facebook. (Pick the first 5 friends on your list to find out how your bank heist would go! No cheating!) On facebook I find them stupid, but since book characters are involved here I’m ready to have some fun.
- Choose 5 books!
- Randomly set up your books in order.
- Flip to a random page in the book and write the first two names you see.
- Put the names in the categories listed below in the order you saw them!
- Cry at how screwed you are…
Okay, I’m just using the goodreads random feature to choose five books, and an online random number generator to pick the pages. Because I like ACTUAL randomness, haha.
