Genre: Fantasy
Date Started: September 12
Date Completed: September 19
I don't like reading fantasy books, but I decided to get myself familiar with this genre again.
The story is about a dragon named Firedrake. Him, along with the friends he makes throughout his journey, try to revive an ancient race of dragons before the Nettlebrand (the antagonist) eats him, along with the other dragons. He collects moonlight as Nettlebrand's spies chase them.

Almost 12pm here! Kicking off our #magicalallnighter with some butterbeers. We're starting out reading Dragon Rider. What is everyone else reading right now?
#newtsreadathon2019 #magicalreadathon2019

mcipher Real butterbeer??? That is so cool! What does it taste like? 3mo
Books.Bottles.and.Babies @mcipher I actually made it myself. I use vanilla cream soda and add a very small amount of butter extract and rum extract. I make it for my kids all the time so I decided I should make official labels 😂 3mo
mcipher Wow! That‘s such a cool idea and I love the labels! 😊 3mo

Rating: 3.5 Stars

This is a middle grade fantasy. Honestly the world and characters are really interesting but the plot didn‘t really blow me away. I will probably continue to book 2 if I can find the audiobook on Scribd. But won‘t go out of my way to purchase it.

Absolutely one of my favorite books. I've read it about two times but haven't picked it up in years. Definitely thinking about picking it up again.

A favorite #herebedragons book! When @DuckOfDoom posted about the sequel recently coming out in Germany I pulled this down for a #reread. Cornelia Funke is a master 🐉💕

MCYmermaid I very much liked the audio of this as well. 3y
Titania A sequel!! My daughter will be SO happy! 3y
elkeo_TheBookDragon @Titania When the sequel comes out in English it should be titled something about a griffin...maybe 😉 3y
Titania @elkeo I looked it up, and you're right - A Griffin's Feather. Not available for preorder yet, but expected in English in 2017. My daughter is beside herself. 😄 3y
juliannebenford I loved this, so cool that there's going to be a sequel! 3y

#photoadaynov16 I don't read books with dragons, but my daughter does. She is 8 yrs old and recently finished this 500+ page book. She's in third grade and is reading at a 7th grade level. I'm so proud of my super reader! Cornelia Funke is now her favorite author. #herebedragons #raisingreaders @RealLifeReading

I don't #reread much, but I just finished rereading Dragonrider, a children's book about a journey to find a new home for the last of the dragons. It was released 19 years ago and this month a sequel was released.
When I was 5 years old, my father read this to me and I still think audiobooks read by parents are the best ones 😊

I throughly loved this book! Dragons, brownies, and the sweetest orphan boy you will ever meet go on an action packed adventure to save the dragons. They run into trouble and other fairy tale creatures on their mission to find a safe place to live away from humans and the terrible golden one. The ending melted my mommy heart. I loved it.

pppooraikul @Foragingfantasy Thank you! I'm gonna read this one. ☺️ 3y

❤️ do you see those odd looking candies? Chocolate, sea salt and GHOST CHILI PEPPER covered almonds. They. Are. Heaven.

pppooraikul Hmmm, never tried one. Now I have to! 😆 And what do you think of the book? I keep seeing it so often lately. Should I add it to my TBR stack or not? 3y
Foragingfantasy @pppooraikul so far I'm loving it. If you enjoyed Inkheart, it feels kind of like that. I'll finish soon and let you know. 3y
pppooraikul @Foragingfantasy Thanks! I'd be looking forward to your review. 😁😉 3y

Dragon Rider is one of the novels which got me into fantasy. It stayed with me since I was 6/7, when my mom read it to me and I read it again and again.
It follows the journey of the dragon Firedrake, the Brownie Sorrel and the boy Ben as they search for the Rim of Heaven, a safe haven for dragons..
