One girl seeks out #DragonFiction & #GryphonFiction!


Some of the novels on this curated list are books that I own or books that I have stumbled across through my local library. I have always intended to read the books I have found which celebrate dragons in fiction, but as most readers will understand, time and life tend to take us away from half of the books we are intending to read! However, I am still very much keen on reading more dragons in fiction, and decided to compile my various lists and scribblements, tweets and post-its into one organised list! As I start to pick up the books I'll be blogging my thoughts as I go along, especially in weekly installments of "what are you reading" type of posts on Wednesdays, as I used to write those posts far more frequently than I have now! If I feel compelled too after I conclude my readings, I may even write a proper review! You'll simply have to stay tuned as this project does not have an end date!

NOTE: I have read part of Kate Klimo's series but I want to re-read them in order to continue! I also *loved!* "The Neverending Story" as a motion picture yet somehow missed the fact I needed to read the novel?

I did organise this list in order of reading preference, as well as each series was listed in order of release. I am not sure if the list will keep this order once I publish it, but it was my intent for it to be organised as such. Likewise, if I knew a series I would enjoy and/or knew I would take a chance on reading past the first installment, I included more than the first book.

On my list of "Top 10 Favourite Indie Sci-Fi & Fantasy Stories" you will unearth my favourite dragon fiction series thus far discovered, which is Jackie Gamber's "Leland Dragons!" A close second is the "Dragon Keepers" by Kate Klimo!

I want to thank @FantasyCafe, #genrechat (now defunct), & @OfTheWilds especially for their recommendations! And, to Christine @ ReaderlyMusings who encouraged me to read Percy Jackson! {This list is a work-in-progress. If you have a suggestion, please tweet me! @joriestory}
