Okay, so technically, the name of the blog is CONFESSIONS of a Book Habitue, but this is like a guilty secret confession.
I read Dragon Slippers.
I know, it didn't win. BUT, I realized it was already on my "to read" list. Because it won a Whitney last year. And now it's a nominee for a Beehive award.
So it was sitting there begging me to check it out and read it.
And I caved.
I will still read Lost Boys. I will. It was the winning book for March. As soon as I get it from the library, I will read it.
In the meantime...
Dragon Slippers by Jessica Day George
I really really enjoyed this. What can I say, I'm a total sucker for dragon books. And I LOVE Patricia Wrede's dragon books, and you can't not feel a connection. (Well, I can't anyway.)
The fun tale of Creel, a girl who strikes out on her own, Dragon Slippers has adventure, fantasy, highs, lows... everything you could want in a fantasy novel. I can absolutely see why it won a Whitney. I can't remember what it's up against for the Beehive, but it won't surprise me if it wins.
I read this in an evening. Literally. About 320 pages in... a bit less than 4 hours. Because really technically I was doing more watching NCIS than reading for the first while. (There are so many NCIS options on Monday nights.)
But Lost Boys is still definitely the winner for March. I promise. (I just cannot believe there's only one copy in the whole freakin' county.)
