It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

A month-long posting challenge that showcases authors and their works. We start on June 1 and post daily (except Sundays), with each day having a letter of the alphabet. The point of this:
  • To show our appreciation to awesome authors.
  • To share awesome authors with our readers.
  • To challenge ourselves to post daily, outside memes and reviews.

You'd expect me to have a dragon book, wouldn't you? This book was so enjoyable, I've read the whole series and then moved on to other books Ms. Paul has written.
DragonSpell
by Donita K. Paul website

Once a slave, Kale is given the unexpected opportunity to become a servant to Paladin. Yet this young girl has much to learn about the difference between slavery and service.

A small band of Paladin's servants rescue Kale from danger but turn her from her destination: The Hall, where she was to be trained. Feeling afraid and unprepared, Kale embarks on a perilous quest to find the meech dragon egg stolen by the foul wizard Risto. First, she and her comrades must find Wizard Fenworth. But their journey is threatened when a key member of the party is captured, leaving the remaining companions to find Fenworth, attempt an impossible rescue, and recover the egg whose true value they have not begun to suspect...

Looks like a week of dragons ;-)
How Droofus the Dragon Lost His Head
by Bill Peet, website

Droofus the kindly dragon has a price on his head, but the small boy who befriends him refuses to sell him to the king.











Ms. Pierce writes several series (I've read most of them) for the young teen readers. Most of her books have a recommended reader age of 12+ but some say 10+. Her books have great girl characters that kick A..! This isn't my favorite but look, it has a dragon on the cover ;-)
Shatterglass
Tamora Pierce, website

Kethlun Warder was a gifted glassmaker until his world was shattered in a freak accident. Now his remaining glass magic is mixed with lightning, and Tris must teach him to control it (if she can teach him to control his temper first). But there's more at stake than Keth's education. With his strange magic, he creates glass balls that reflect the immediate past and expose the work of a murderer. If he can harness his power properly, he'll be able to see the crimes as they take place. Keth and Tris race against time, and the local authorities, to identify a killer who's living in plain sight.
