  1. Such great choices! I've only read the first two Pern books but I really enjoyed them. And of COURSE GoT! How did I not pick that?

  3. Nice Dragons Finish Last is on my TBR, but I think my favorites are the J.A. Pitts books, even though they're your runners up. That's the kind of cover art I'm always drawn to. But the little dragons on Dragonsong are awesome and I want them as my pets lol.

    1. I like the look of Nice Dragons Finish Last, I might need to get that one. And I had a surprisingly hard time this week making my picks- I was kinda torn between the more traditional fantasy covers and the edgier, more modern stuff. I thought dragons would be easy! :)

      I like those little dragons too, I could use a dragon pet! I'll take a green one...

  4. Excellent choices and some new to me books. Really, any Pern book would have worked but Dragonsong is one of my fave Pern covers.

    1. The Pern covers are amazing, most of them. I thought about using them but figured they'd be super obvious. :)

  7. Great picks! I knew there would be a lot of George RR Martin picks, although I've never read any of those books.
    Check out my covers.
