I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Friday Finds

A Weekly Event hosted by mizb at Should be Reading
The idea is to share, every Friday, about books that you’ve recently discovered (never heard of before) that sound really good!

Every Friday, those who have blogs will write a post at their own blog, and then come back and leave others a link to follow on that week’s “Friday Finds” post here at Should Be Reading. For those who don’t blog, you can just tell us about your “Friday Finds” in a comment on that week’s post. )

Let’s try to keep this clean… that’s all I ask, okay?
Found while searching amazon for Donita K. Paul (she was quoted)....

Raising Dragons
Dragons in Our Midst, Book 1
Bryan Davis

Living Ink Press
June 25, 2004
400 Pages
6 x 9 inches
Trade Paperback
Young Adult

from the publisher:
Raising Dragons is a contemporary fantasy novel, the first of a series of books for pre-teens and young adults. Along with a unique blend of fantasy and real life, it delivers action, danger, and inspiration through the adventures of two young teens, Billy Bannister and Bonnie Silver.

The kids at school call Billy "Dragon Breath" for good reason. His breath is bad! It isn't the normal, morning-mouth bad; it's the hot-as-fire, "don't-you-dare-get-near-me" bad. And hearing "Dragon Breath" ringing in his ears, he constantly tries to cool his oral volcano. Trouble erupts when his hot breath sets off the fire sprinklers in the boys' restroom at school, and his parents learn that they've kept their secret for too long.

Billy finally discovers the secret. His father was once a dragon! Now that's a piece of news a guy doesn't deal with every day! Billy feels betrayed, alien, lost. When his father reverts to his dragon form, and they're both chased by dragon slayers, he learns to trust his father again, battling the slayers with weapons of steel and spirit.

Bonnie, an orphan, tries to find a home, someone to love her, even though she feels like a freak because of a body feature that she calls a deformity, her dragon wings, inherited from her now dead dragon mother. She discovers that her love for others and her faith in a Creator hold the answers she is looking for.

and three more!

warning? These are Christian Fantasy. Amazon's description says "...inspires young people to pursue faith, courage, and love, to dig deep within to find their God-given strengths..." I thought you'd want to know. I love fantasy and young adult and with Christian fantasy I know it'll be clean! ... I wonder how prayerful they'll be....wandering back to amazon to add them to my wish list.

Thank you Bryan.

The graphic doesn't do the cover justice. It is absolutely beautiful! I've start the first chapter but only got a few paragraphs in before I realized I better do my blog posts first - I may not be coming up for air anytime soon!
