A Bookish Birthday

Expect regular posts soon, because I have a LOT of drafts thanks to 750words, plus a lot of end-of-Jan updates/reviews on my various challenges. But for now I just have BIRTHDAY SWAG for you to drool over.

I got a LOT of Timothy Zahn books from my sister and my parents. He's probably my favorite science fiction author and one of my favorite authors ever. The titles are:
  • Dragonback Bargain (omnibus including Dragon and Thief, Dragon and Soldier, and Dragon and Slave)
  • Dragon and Herdsman
  • Dragon and Judge
  • Dragon and Liberator
  • Night Train to Rigel
  • The Third Lynx
The last two are part of a different series than the Dragonback ones.

Then I got a bunch of Cressida Cowell's dragon books, featuring Hiccup the Viking and Toothless:
  • How To Be A Pirate
  • How To Speak Dragonese
  • How To Cheat a Dragon's Curse
  • How To Twist A Dragon's Tale
  • A Hero's Guide To Deadly Dragons
I've read those before, but they are all excellent! So now I own the whole series except the newest one.
The rest are:
  • Dangerous to Know: Lady Emily #5 by Tasha Alexander (the cover is gorgeous, let's FACE FACTS)
  • 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne
  • The American by HENRY FREAKING JAMES
  • The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan (which I've's really fun so far!)

Omg, Henry freaking JAMES? You lucky girl. I'm so jealous.

JK, that was a lie. But I'm happy for you? :D

The sarcasm is strong with this one.

You love it. I know.
