Here be Dragons challenge



I've just come across this challenge while wandering round the book blogs and as I have a handful of dragon books on my tbr pile I thought I would give it a go. The challenge is to read 3-5 books that are dragon related from the 1st. January to the 30th. June 2008. The link to the challenge, which is being run by Love at Stray Talk, is here.

My list:

Temeraire - Naomi Novik
All the Weyrs of Pern - Anne McCaffrey
Eragon - Christopher Paolini
Assassin's Quest - Robin Hobb
Dragons of Autumn Twilight - Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman

Looking forward to this one!

I can't believe you found someone doing a "dragon challenge"!.. AND that you joined!!! Way to go Cath! I guess I could join..it would certainly be a no brainer for me since I just began Dragonflight (after Jan 1) and I'll be reading 6 pern books in a row.. heh.. we'll see.. maybe tomorrow.. maybe lol.. I've only ever joined Carls fantasy challenge which I think starts in March.. I think (I've been known to be wrong.. alot lol)

I'm so glad you decided you join the challenge! The more, the merrier, and all that.

I'll be looking forward to seeing your reviews. =)

Oh, now I'm just going to have to do this challenge, now, aren't I? All the Weyrs of Pern is a good choice... but, if it's on the list, start with Dragonflight if you haven't already read it. :)

Yes, Pat, trust me to find a dragon challenge. How neat is that? I thought it would make me read All the Weyrs of Pern at last and also finish the Robin Hobb 'Assassin' trilogy. have you read those? 6 Pern books in a row would see the challenge finished pretty quick, eh? :-)

Love: I'm really looking forward to this challenge and hoping it'll make me read a few books off the tbr mountain.

Nicole B: Hi. Yes I have read Dragonflight. I read the Pern books up to All the Weyrs and then just came to a halt. I'm thinking this challenge will make me carry on with this series I love so much. And maybe finish the Robin Hobb 'Assassin' series too.

No I haven't read the Robin Hobb books. But I have noticed them lol

Yeah it will, but that's ok, like I said, I don't join challenges really (cept for carls fantasy one) and both his and this one aren't really challenges for me cause I'd be reading them anyway. but they do give me lots of reviews to read!! lol

Deslily: Am I going to be tempted into Carl's fantasy challenge this year I wonder? Hmmmmm. (I wasn't around last year.) I don't think it will be easy to resist...
