    You win for including Patricia C. Wrede’s Talking to Dragons. Have you read the whole series? Including her book of short stories (The Book of Enchantments)? Because if not, YOU SHOULD.

      Oh yes. I have read a lot of what Wrede has written – including her Lyra series. She is one of my all-time favourites. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve read The Enchanted Forest Chronicles. I’ve lost count. At LEAST once a year. 🙂 Love. So, so much love. And you are completely MORE awesome (which I did not think was possible as you are so awesome already) for loving Wrede! ♥
