Here Be Dragons Challenge Update

I was browsing the blogs of some of the other participants in this challenge and decided to expand my list of dragon books. I reserve the right to do this at any time if another good dragon tale comes to my attention. However, I'll also state now and up front, that I will not be trying to read all these books. It's a guide not a requirement.

So here's my updated list.
  1. Dragon Blood - Patricia Briggs Finished 15-Jan-08: Review here
  2. Empire of Ivory - Naomi Novik (next Temeraire book, on the TBR)
  3. Cast in Courtlight - Michelle Sagara (I'm assuming Tiamaris is in this one too, on the TBR)
  4. Tea with the Black Dragon - R. A. MacAvoy (on the want to reread list)
  5. Brother to Dragons, Companion to Owls - Jane Lindskold (on the want to reread list)
  6. The Copper Crown - Patricia Kennealy-Morrison (so it's a dragon-styled spaceship but that's got to be close, on the want to reread list)
  7. Dragonhaven - Robin McKinley (sounds like fun and the library has it)
  8. Rhapsody - Elizabeth Haydon (listed by another challenge participant; I've been wanting to read this series)
  9. Here, There Be Dragons - James A. Owen (listed by another challenge participant; sounds interesting)
  10. A Game of Thrones - George R. R. Martin (something I'd like to read, but I'm scared by its length)
  11. Dragon's Blood - Jane Yolen (loved this series when I read it years ago)
  12. Dragon Prince - Melanie Rawn (I've been wanting to reread this and this challenge might be the perfect excuse)
  13. Dragon Rider - Cornelia Funke (I liked Inkheart and would like to try more by Funke)

Thanks for visiting my site...about A Game of Thrones - Stray Talk who sponsors this challenge has it listed as a dragon book so, I assumed that it did.

I am an avid cross-stitcher and just realized that I have some of your creations in my to-be-stitched pile. I have been out of commission for a while and haven't been able to stitch much - but it is nice to meet you again!!!
