30 Day Book Challenge: Day 11

Day 11- The Book that made you fall in love with reading
Blue Moon Rising by Simon R. Green

This book, with it's Prince, Princess, dragon, unicorn and nightmare monster things was what got me really interested in reading. It has action, adventure, humor and some scary moments that had me a little bit terrified. I'd read other books before but this was the first one I read that I didn't want to put down.

Rupert didn't especially want to be a prince. And he certainly never asked to be the second son of a royal line that really didn't need a spare. So he was sent out to slay a dragon and prove himself-a quest straight out of legend. But he also discovered the kinds of things legends tend to leave out, as well as the usual demons, goblins, the dreaded Night Witch-and even worse terrors hidden in the shadows of Darkwood.  Rupert did find a fiery dragon-and a beautiful princess to rescue. But the dragon turned out to be a better friend than anyone back at the castle, and with the evil of Darkwood spreading, Rupert was going to need all the friends he could get.
If you haven't read this book yet and you like this genre, I highly recommend it. The only problem I've had is finding it. If you have a kindle (or kindle app) it is available from for $11.04, which is kind of a weird price considering it was first published in 1989 (last published in 2005). The actual book is closer to $14. Hopefully you can find a cheaper copy somewhere else but that was where I found it!

I have my friend Jess to thank for my interest in reading. Her love of books is what got me started! She is also responsible for the first novel I ever read. I blame her for my book collecting habit.
