August 28: Searching for Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede. #2 of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles. As good as the first one (though Goodreads reviewers seem to think it’s not, but apparently they don’t read closely enough to get Mendanbar’s name right anyway). It’s got a lot of Morwen! And a no-nonsense king! I don’t even mind the friends-to-lovers because Cimorene and Mendanbar become lovers with their friendship completely intact.
August 30: Calling on Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede, #3 of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles. Lots of cats, and an entertaining fire witch, but I could have done without the rabbit donkey (the story couldn’t have, perhaps).
August 31: Talking to Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede. #4 of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles. More chaotic than the other books but that’s perhaps because the protagonist is (intentionally kept) clueless. Fun, though, and a good ending overall.
September 2: Sorcery and Cecelia by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer. Comfort reread (and will most probably reread the whole series; already started on the second). Every time I reread it I notice new things, which is one of the hallmarks of a good book as far as I’m aware.
