My Review of Dragon Flight!

As promised, here is my review of Dragon Flight by Jessica Day George!

Dragon Flight was a devastating read because it 1.) Made me realize I was becoming an avid fan of George’s writing and 2.) It clearly showed that if she keeps up this maniac writing pace I am going to remain quite poor thanks to my book fund being repeatedly emptied!

The story opens very sweetly, if not just a little bit boring. Quickly, the reader is thrust back into Creel’s world so that even if they had forgotten minor details, it really doesn’t matter.

I found myself drawn to Creel for different reasons then I was when reading Dragon Slippers. Other characters such as Marta, Tobin, Luka, Niva, Velika, Feniul, and Amacarin were given larger and more important roles then in Dragon Slippers, and then rose to the challenge magnificently. Dragon Flight also introduced us to new characters and places that were very easy to become attached to and intrigued by.

The sequences that dealt with the Dragon’s were very well written. My only complaint was that sometimes the dragon acted almost too human. There were also a few parts where dragons performed alchemy, and I felt that it was never really explained how they learned it or why they were able to work it. Little details like that were missing, but since the book is written for a slightly younger crowd it will take a very observant reader to notice this.

It was very obvious from reading this that no longer are we dealing with an inexperienced author; instead, George’s writing is filled with vibrancy, details, and a very well thought out plot for a book that was never meant to be!

Overall, I have very few complaints about this book, and many compliments! I hope that George will continue to produce ever more splendid reads such as Dragon Flight in the future! Maybe there will be a sequel to the sequel?

This book is recommended for any teenage girl. It’s a great, clean, read.

Buried under a Mountain of Homework that might Possibly cause me to not Survive!

I don’t mean to sound as gloomy as this post title may suggest…. but yet I am. I have so much homework to do, and of course I procrastinated to the last possible day. It doesn’t really help matters that it’s Algebra (my least favorite subject) that I need to do. Oh well! Anybody good at math?

On a completely and wonderfully exciting different note- I just got my first Advance Readers Copy!!!! It’s Dragon Flight by Jessica Day George and I couldn’t be more excited! I hope it’s amazing… and I’m pretty sure it will be!

Well here I go- and if I don’t make it through the night then please remember that Jesus loves you and Dobby will forever and eternally rocks my socks and be a true hero!

EDIT: For all those interested I did indeed survive. More posts to come… Probably the next one will be a review of Dragon Flight! I’m going to start reading now…

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.

However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighborhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families that he his considered as the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters.”

Happy Hearts Day

To all of you out there who are, like me, single on this beautiful Valentine’s Day, let me say Congratulations! Isn’t it fun? No constraints, no dates, no worries! Yes there’s no chocolate…

That’s true 😦

But on the bright side you can focus on how much fun it is to be a single gal!

I’m serious about that by the way. I think it’s totally awesome that those of us who don’t have a special someone can focus on loving others and being loved by Jesus Christ!

Anyways, Happy Valentine’s Day! Here’s to love!
