WOW WOW WOW. While this list is chock full of books we love here at YA & WS, including tons of Tamora Pierce, John Green, Laini Taylor, and many other books that made my childhood, there was one that made me gasp. out. loud.
Princess Cimorene of Lindenwall decides she's had enough of being a princess, and hires herself out to cook for the dragon Kazul. This boxed set follows her adventures, and those of her son Daystar.
This was it, the original books Grad Student and I loved. I did'nt even remember they existed under I read "Princess Cimorene....". Now, I would bet these are a low reading level, as we were young when we read them, but the light hearted magical books, classic and wonderful. Did I mention GS and I had a thing for dragons?
