Here's one of the books from my latest Thriftbooks haul. I'm obsessed with that site. I love shopping for books there, especially since I used to be a big used bookstore shopper and we don't have any of those left in my area.
I don’t know if I told you all that I started collecting old fairy tales, folklore and world mythology books. I have a little bookstagram account on instagram where I have pictures up of what I have so far. Since I’m trying to streamline my social media a bit, I may start posting those here. Anyway, I saw this neat book on dragons and bought it to use for research. It has some really neat info on dragon myths worldwide so I’m excited to get into it.
What are your favorite mythical creatures to read about and why?

Ooo, my edits have taken me into the first dragon scene in Storm Tide. ️ I loved coming up with descriptions for this beautiful creature so here’s a little Teaser Tuesday snippet.

A fantastical, bookish quote for Monday from one of my all time favorites.
The Neverending Story! I couldn’t pass up this quote from it today. Who else still thinks of Falcor as the coolest dragon ever? Happy new week, everybody! May it bring you amazing adventures.
P.S. I had a mad crush on Atreyu back in the day. #tellmeimnottheonlyone

I thought I'd try to start sharing these image quotes that I make of great authors' words here in the blog. I usually only put these up on some of my social media haunts, but I enjoy making them and reading them and so I wanted to have them up for readers here too. This week's quote comes from Rudyard Kipling and I think it's so very true. Here's to a week of taking on your fears big and small!
"Of all the liars in the world, sometimes the worst are our own fears." - Rudyard Kipling
