Naomi Novik’s Temeraire series
The year began with a reread of the first book in the series. Her Majesty’s Dragon is the title of the first book in Canada, published in 2006, though it is titled differently elsewhere.
I’ve reread this book three times, not only because it’s very good, but because I had previously planned to finish reading the series. This time I actually did, in the company of my bookfriend, Carra.
She kept me motivated to read on, for while neither of us is terrific about finishing series, she is much more devoted than I, and, so, League of Dragons (2016) was my last book of the reading year.
For those who think they do not like books about dragons, I think you would find Temeraire is an exception, and I have heard that the audiobooks are a particular treat.
