What: 2012 Year of the Dragon Challenge
Type: Personal; GoodReads
When: 23 January 2012 – 9 February 2013
Purpose: Read books that feature dragons, whether they are the shape-shifting variety or “real”. The dragon has to play a major part, not just a “special guest appearance”. My personal goal is 12-15 books.
01. Winging It by Deborah Cooke
02. Flashfire by Deborah Cooke
03. Blazing the Trail by Deborah Cooke
04. Dark Embers by Tess Adams
05. Throne of Jade by Naomi Novik
06. Dragon Actually by G. A. Aiken
07. Firewalker by Allyson James
~~ & ~~
In honor of 2012 being the Year of the Dragon (Chinese zodiac), I thought it would be fun to do a challenge featuring dragons. This is the only challenge I’m actually hosting, but not here. I’ve posted this challenge in the Serious Overload of Series (SOS) Group on GoodReads. The challenge thread is here. You do have to be a member of the group to participate. The challenge requirements are very flexible — I’ve even allowed for books with “dragon” in the title or a dragon on the cover, even if there isn’t one in the book! No set requirement for number of books — that’s determined by the reader.
