#AtoZChallenge Post: H for Henrietta the Dragon Slayer by Beth Barany

Dragons are often part of a fantasy tale. For me, I find it nice to have a momentary escape in a magical world filled with dragons, unicorns and such. The experience would be better if the tale feels and looks real to a reader. I’m looking forward to reading this one. It’s part of my to-read list.

Do you like fantasy? Any fantasy books that you’ve read or want to read?

I've not read this one either, but might have to try it out. Looks interesting.

Been spending my days reading fairy tales; pre-fantasy books I believe. That is only because I am with children 11 hours a day :) But someday I'll read a 'real' book. chuckle Prayers appreciated * another a to z blogger

Love dragons! The ones that won't roast me alive, at any rate. :)

I'll read YA and MG fantasy, but I find the adult stuff pretty snore worthy these days. Most high fantasy authors have forgotten the need to build constant tension...and I guess that's okay. They have an audience--it's just not me. =)

When Dragons are done right, I'm a total sap.

I like anything that looks or feels real in a story, or at least grounded in reality. This one sounds good.

I do enjoy fantasy stories and I especially love dragons, but I haven't read any recently. Lately I've been reading different genres.

I love reading fantasy, dragons, unicorns, mermaids (bring them all on).

I am one of those strange people who doesn't read fantasy at all. Weird, I know. I'm more of a creative non-fiction girl. Give me memoir and stark reality!

For the fantasy writers out there, this reality reading did not pass down to my next generation. My daughters LOVE fantasy!
