Wings of Fire by Tui T. Sutherland

This book is really well written and fast paced. It is like a series within a series type of book. Each set of five books has prophesy, and each of the five books are told by one different dragonet of destiny. As you might have guessed, this is about dragons. It is very descriptive and makes you want to keep reading. Currently with nine books in the series, a tenth is scheduled to come out soon. Tui T. Sutherland says this will be the last book in the Wings of Fire series. There is some blood and violence, so may not be appropriate for readers under seven. This is one of my favorite books and I hope you read it!

Writing Tips

There are many ways to get writers hooked on a story early on.  One way is to foreshadow and hint at future trouble.  One way is to write a prologue.  A prologue is a chapter in the beginning that takes place before the story.  Another way is to surprise the reader.  Get the reader’s suspicions lured.  Someone shrieks, end of chapter.  Which brings up another matter – how can you end chapters so that the reader wants to continue?  End with a worry.  Most writers end their chapters with a worry or a cliffhanger.  Your character could be hanging from a cliff by the toes or her fingers.  One friend says something mean and the hurt friend says “I’ll get you for this!”.  Chapter ends.  The absolute worse happens – end of chapter.  But you only can get away with a few absolute worsts.  Have fun writing!

The Land Of Stories: The Wishing Spell By Chris Colfer

This wonderful modern retake on the fairy tale world by Glee actor Chris Colfer is an amazing book. The twins Conner and Alex Bailey are about to discover the fairy tale world isn’t quite what they imagined. After their grandmother gives them her magical storybook, Alex activates the portal and she and Conner fall into the fairy tale world. There they meet Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and become good friends with Jack and Goldilocks. I LOVE this book! If you read and enjoy this book as I did, then these are the other books in the series: The Enchantress Returns and A Grimm Warning. I hope you enjoy this book!
