After watching How to Train your Dragon 2, I decided to write my Top Thursday post on books that have dragons in them. I love reading stories of dragons whether they’re villains or heroes of the story they always seem to captivate me since I was a child. And if you love dragons as much as I do, I highly recommend the following books:
1. Eregon by Christopher Paulini
An entire series of dragon beginning with the adventures of one boy and a dragon hatchling.
2. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling
Who can forget the first tournament when Harry had to face off with a terrible fire-breathing dragon for the first time?
3. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
A world where dragons are math geniuses and can turn into human form at court.
4. The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien
Smaug. Need I say more?
5. A Dance with Dragons by George RR Martin
I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan and who wouldn’t want to be the Mother of Dragons.
6. Eon: Dragoneye Reborn by Alison Goodman
A girl who trains to learn dragon magic comes a story with a mix of dragons and East Asian astrology.
7. Talon by Julie Kagawa
The first book in a series where dragons are a secret society determined to rule over the human world.
8. A Creature or Moonlight by Rebecca Hahn
A girl who is half dragon and half human is torn between two worlds.
9. Alice Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll
Yes, there’s a dragon in here didn’t you know? It’s also been called as the Jabberwocky.
10. Clariel by Garth Nix
A girl name Clariel is facing a lot of problems in her life including her parent’s marrying her off to a killer, trouble brewing between two kingdoms, and to top it all off, a dangerous free-magic creature is loose in the city.
