This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. It is now being hosted by Budget Tales Book Blog. To participate, choose a random book from your GoodReads TBR and show it off. Which sounds easy enough until you have to decide how to choose that book! I think I will use a different way each week, like picking a color or number of pages. I will let you know each week how I chose the book and then something interesting about it, like how it ended up on the list or why I want to read it. Got it? Okay let’s get started.
I had a hard time trying to decide which book to highlight this week. I finally decided to see which book is the longest one on my list currently , but then I had a better idea. Which book on my list has the longest title! I’m not absolutely positive that this is the longest, but it sure is long.
Miss Percy’s Pocket Guide to the Care and Feeding of British Dragons by Quenby Olson
Publication Date: October 26, 2021
Summary from Goodreads:
Miss Mildred Percy inherits a dragon.
Ah, but we’ve already got ahead of ourselves…
Miss Mildred Percy is a spinster. She does not dance, she has long stopped dreaming, and she certainly does not have adventures. That is, until her great uncle has the audacity to leave her an inheritance, one that includes a dragon’s egg.
The egg – as eggs are wont to do – decides to hatch, and Miss Mildred Percy is suddenly thrust out of the role of “spinster and general wallflower” and into the unprecedented position of “spinster and keeper of dragons.”
But England has not seen a dragon since… well, ever. And now Mildred must contend with raising a dragon (that should not exist), kindling a romance (with a humble vicar), and embarking on an adventure she never thought could be hers for the taking.
It has been a while since I read a good dragon book. I have one on hold at the library which I will be getting in a couple of weeks, but I think this one will be coming home with me soon as well. I just love the look on that baby dragon’s face. Priceless! This one also has a pretty high rating on Goodreads and the reviews look good. There is a sequel as well. This just might turn into the summer of dragons for me. I can’t wait!
I’ve never heard of this but it sounds brilliant
It does sound amazing!
