The rather substantial hole in my roof barely registered as I hurriedly undid the bag's ties in my haste to discover its hidden treasures. (By the way. Anybody have the number to a good roofer?)
Much to my delight, It was full to the brim with reading goodness!
I also discovered that my friendly dragon is only so generous. Strangely some of these got charged to my Amazon account. (I wonder how he got into my book funds. Never mind, he is a dragon. Who in their right mind would refuse him!?) But that's ok. Some of them were truly gifts so all is not lost! (Unless you count my roof.)
So here, for your viewing envy, umm, pleasure, is a look at the types of pressies you can get from a grateful dragon. (In case you missed it. The Magic Book Bag is my reward for removing a splinter the size of a small tree from said dragon's foot...)
First out the bag was Aerie by Mercedes Lackey! This was the final book of the Dragon Jousters so now I can review the whole series. Yay!
In Progress! ~ My Reviews: Dragon Jousters
Next two books were Wings of Wrath and Legacy of Kings (Magister Trilogy) by C. S. Friedman. I read and reviewed book one -- Feast of Souls -- several years ago here in the Belfry. I don't remember much except that I liked it. So I have decided to start from the beginning and review the whole thing on Dragons, Heroes and Wizards (DHW). Besides. I'm curious to see how the two reviews compare. Back then I was still "finding my voice" and those old reviews sometimes scare me. (OMG! I wrote that! It is like... a paragraph! That is NOT a review!) So I'm not even going to look at it -- yet. Once I do I'll likely start laughing... hysterically.
Done! ~ My Reviews: The Magister Trilogy
I reached back into this marvelous bag and pulled out my Kindle! What?!? What the heck is it doing in there! I powered it on, looked at the menu and to my surprise and delight it now contains the last 2 books in Robin Hobb's Rain Wilds Chronicles! Awesome! Now I can review that series too! Dragons do have some amazing powers it seems. (And yes I know the covers don't match but the series is undergoing a cover change and they haven't been updated on HarperCollins website yet.)
Done! ~ My Reviews: Rain Wild Chronicles
I read and reviewed her King Rolan's Kin trilogy on DHW and I am thrilled to get the chance to read and review this series also.
Done! ~ My Reviews: Outcast Chronicles
Next up was a copy of "The Price of Fame" which she wrote under the pen name of R.C. Daniells. This one is a Crime ~ Murder ~ Mystery ~ Paranormal ~ Modern type book that I am less likely to read. Not really my "thing" but who knows. I may get the urge sometime to check it out anyway.
So what do you think? Think this will keep me out of trouble for awhile? Once I finish with Robin Hobb's Rain Wilds Chronicles, which series would you like to see first? Second?
I am going to read them all, but I can't decide which to do next. So I got the brilliant idea of letting you set the order. So comment with your preference and may the best series win!
And hey, that includes you -- yeah, you -- over there cowering in the corner. The dragon is gone now. You can come out and look at all the pretty books....
