I'm one of more than a thousand bloggers taking part in the A-Z Blogging challenge this year. The goal is to blog everyday in April - except Sundays. You don't need a theme...but I've got one.
It's called watchYAreading. Each day, I'll be blogging about a young adult book I have read - and loved (or at least really liked.)
Sadly, in this case, it's a book I have yet to read...but really, really want to. Frankly, given it's subject matter, I'm stunned it hasn't already made it to the top of my toppling TBR pile.
From the cover:
When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself. Overnight his simple life is shattered, and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic, and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds. Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands...
Sounds great, right? Tell me it is...
Is Eragon your "E" book of choice? Tell me why. If not, pick another and chat about it in the comments section below. At the end of the month I'll choose three readers to win a copy of SPIRITED, an anthology of haunting YA fiction.
