The Book Of Dragons
by Jonathan Strahan

View in Library Catalog



I love reading about dragons and this book has a whole bunch of different ones! I did like reading the stories, though I wish some of them could be turned into full length novels (I will keep my fingers crossed). Like the mechanical dragon one and getting a book at the pawn shop run by a vampire, or the one with the dragons powering the cities with their fire or Lucky's accidental experiment created miniature dragon or the dragon foster mother. They were so interesting! I did like that I did not have to sit for a long time reading it. If I had a few minutes I could just read one of the stories and then think about it while I was busy with other things. It was quite enjoyable. Though I did sit for awhile and also read several of the stories at once. It was like eating a plate full of appetizers, each one yummy but different. I also was introduced to some new authors (though several were written by my favorite authors) with this anthology and now I have added even more books to my TBR list! That might not be a good thing but I know I will never run out of good books to read!

I love this book because it is about two pugs and one of them absolutely hates the other one but in the end she loves her sister.

This book is really philosophical and deep, and it makes you really think about the meaning of time. It is an amazing book that I would definitely recommend for people to read.

A Kinder Poison

This was definitely a pretty exciting book! And all because Zahru wanted to go to a party with her friend, Hen. Zahru is only a Whisperer (which I think is a pretty cool power, even if no one else does) and so is not eligible to go to the party before the great race of the heirs to decide who will be the next ruler after their father dies. The name she chooses (her mother Lia) puts her in the wrong group and she ends up chosen as the sacrifice due to the cruelty of one of the royalty. The three sibling heirs, Kasta, Jet, and Sakira have their own personalities (Suspicious about everyone and has a dark side, Trying to be a good guy but needs to grow a backbone, and Party girl looking for the next adventure) that kept the story interesting and rolling at a good pace. Many adventures ensue in the desert race, from stealing a firespinner, to escaping from mercenaries. I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next one, especially with how it ended.

The Sushi Prophecies

I will say that this is a very colorful story with oddball characters that seem to be mostly high, usually on weed or mushrooms or mysterious plant, or drunk. I really hope Vancouver is really not what is described in this book. The main character is Sebastian, though he usually is called Seb or even Sebby by his friends. He has an awful girlfriend, Adina, who he really should have broken up with long ago. He works and manages the Verdigris, a very successful garden/nursery. Life is colorful but when he gets an odd plant in an order, things go even more crazy. The descriptions in this book are very vivid, not always in a good way. Some are positively stomach churning. The mysterious plant is described as a lobster throwing up cotton candy. And there are very long and, to me, odd and not needed descriptions of hot yoga and an odd tea ceremony. Because of that plant, Sebastian gets caught in a dastardly plot and has to save Vancouver from the clutches of evil people, or not. It is very confusing and disjointed. I think much could be cut out of this book, either that or it might be best read if you are high. I finished it but I think the story is way too meandering (just go ahead and save the darn city!), the plot is not great and it is definitely not in my niche of liked books.
