WE ARE HERE. The one reading thing that I have done and LOVE so much. December is here and that means so much. I have so much to do and to complete. I have all of my writing challenges to review and give to you, as well as my 12 post countdown to the end of the year. I have so many books to read and am HYPED for the end of the year.
Last year when I did this reading event, I got through so many dragon books that I essentially dragoned myself out. I did not know it was possible, but it was. Surprise. This year I did not buy many new books about dragons, and so thus I had to decide on a different sort of dragon for this month. Don’t worry.
For those of you wondering what the December of Dragons is. It is my book event where I try to read as many books about Dragons as I possibly can. Dragon shifters, books with Dragon enemies, Dragon riders. Anything and everything. Why? I’m a fool, that’s why and I LOVE dragons. As such I decided to set my last month of the year for these books, as dependent on if I can confirm they can be loosely dragon related. This year is a larger stretch than I would like, but it’s fine. I can justify it.
ANYWAY! Let’s jump in.
The flames licked the sides of the hearth warming those who tried to grow comfortable near her fire. A stack of books tall with ancient legends of worlds far away and ages long ago. With nothing but the time in the world, as the cold winds raged outside, hands traveled to the top of the pile to crack open the pages. Once inside the novel they’d be swept away…
For this, this was the time of dragons. The moment that their breath brought light to the world and lit the souls of all who listened on baited breath. This was the time of the kings of the sky who protected their interests and their comrades. This was the time of hiding, in caves and homes. For this was the time of dragons and with dragons came a horde. And with a horde came books. And with books came the stories that whisked one away.
For this was the time of dragons, as it was every year. This was December, and December was for Dragons.

I’m really, not in the mood to take beautiful photos of these either. It is what it is, and it is as beautiful as it can be. HAHA. I know, there aren’t many dragon themed books. This year I went with dragon sized (massive texts) over Dragon content. I figure it was a good way to knock out some of the monsters on my TBR.
Until Next Time!
