First Line is my favorite weekly post! Booklovers can share the first line or two of the book you are currently reading, just finished or just randomly grab one off your shelf…💗
Here I go…
I can’t say I ever wondered what it felt like to be human. But then, my grandfather Grenada always said, “It’s safer not to talk to your food”- and as every dragon knows, humans are the most dangerous kind of meal there is.
Title: The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart
Genre: Middle Grade
Author: Stephanie Burgis
Pub Date: 2017
Synopsis from NetGalley
A chocolate-filled, girl-powered fantasy with a heroine who learns what it means to be a strong, fearsome human (and dragon).
Aventurine is a brave young dragon ready to explore the world outside of her family’s mountain cave . . . if only they’d let her leave it. Her family thinks she’s too young to fly on her own, but she’s determined to prove them wrong by capturing the most dangerous prey of all: a human.
But when that human tricks her into drinking enchanted hot chocolate, she’s transformed into a puny human without any sharp teeth, fire breath, or claws. Still, she’s the fiercest creature in these mountains–and now she’s found her true passion: chocolate. All she has to do is get to the human city to find herself an apprenticeship (whatever that is) in a chocolate house (which sounds delicious), and she’ll be conquering new territory in no time . . . won’t she?
A classic fantasy with terrific girl power, perfect for fans of Shannon Hale and Jessica Day George.
What are you reading this Friday? This title is one I previously saw on NetGalley and was really interested in the story. I found it at the library and I just started reading it to my homeschooled son Joey. So far we are really enjoying! What are some favorite titles you’ve read with your children?
I’d love to hear your thoughts and read your First Line…
Happy Friday friends & Happy Reading this weekend!💗
