 I have come to the conclusion that I spend WAY too much time online (recently discovered Vanoss, H20, etc.. on youtube)... oops lol

 I am currently compiling a list of books to read but I can't really find any that completely grab my interests-here's where I need help. I absolutely ADORE science fiction: Illuminae Files, Ready Player One, Armada, and Maze Runner are all my go to books and are complete works of art (I'm forgetting a ton of other books I've read but you know...background information). Any science-fiction suggestions? Other other book suggestions that you happen to enjoy?

 

Please help :3

Nice to meet you! I'm Shifter. Below is some random stuff in no particular order for now... Actually, the order is amazing art idk how people do it, random timeline revations inbetween, and what is totally the end of my signature... yep

Absolutely awesome clan banner by EmeraldHuntress65! I highly recommend getting a clan banner from her.

Also, my (old) profile picture was edited by the amazing (I need to get new adjectives*) Root! I think the thread is still open and you should totally go and get thy viking upgraded.

 

Here is some artwork done by some very talented individuals...

Look at this amazing art by Reyna! She drew Ivy, my titan boneknapper, perfectly! He looks awesome and so sweet!

 

Oh my word, this is Ivy as a human! I can't get over how good this is and how much detail was put into this amazing art that just made a very special boneknapper come to life. This masterpiece was made by DyliehIdol1214

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH LOOK AT MY BOY SURGE!!!! He's a titan scuttleclaw as a human. He literally looks so amazing and perfect. I cannot thank you, DyliehIdol1214, enough for doing another of my boys. I'll finally stop bothering you now XD

Like, look at him and Ivy, I literally have no words.

(Running into squish problems again, will post link to the actual picture on their deviant art soon so Surge and Ivy's portraits can be fully appreciated)-------squish problems have been resolved, as of 02/03/2021 (you can also tell where I'm from just from that lol)------nevermind, still having squish problems as of ten minutes after I thought I fixed it -.-

 

You guys, look at Sam. This completely amazing drawing of my first titan deadly nadder (adopted back in 2014), just warms my heart and makes me so happy! Thank you SilverNight so much!

 

Sooooooooooo, this awesome dragon was created with three words: whelmed, shadow, and forever. Flitt took on the challenge and made this beautiful work of art. I simply can't get enough!

-------------------------------------------

*note to self: look up synonyms for awesome

Hm...

If you're into young adult, sci-fi, and dragons, I'd definitely recommend Dragonriders of Pern (by Anne McCaffrey)!  I've only read the first 3 books, but they are very well written. Plus dragons! :D

You can try reading the

You can try reading the inheritance cycle by Christopher Paolini. It a book about dragon and their rider who form bonds and have magic. Personally, this is my favourite fantasy book since it tackles social issue. The first book is Eragon (if you have watched the movie, scrap the thought out since the book is way better and more thrilling) the the second book is Eldest, then Brisingr and the last is Inheritance (which made my cry the most).

Never fear, for Blobby's here!

If you're into science fiction, I'd recommend Brandon Sanderson's books.  One example of his books is 'Reckoners'.

1. Eragon aka the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini (he started writing them when he was 15!)

2. Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling

3. Wings of Fire by Tui T Sutherland

4. Warriors by Erin Hunter (a little long and the first book is hard to get through but after that I think it's great)

5. How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell (for obvious reasons.)

I've actually read all of those! Although, I'll admit, I didn't get through Warriors. That book series and the spin off ones are wicked long..They also made me cry because I connect to the characters way too fast ;'( but very good nonetheless

Sci-fi is definitely one of my favourite genres. It's cool to see someone else who likes it, too! It's very rare to see sci-fi lovers on here.

 

I'll recommend Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy if you're into comedy sci-fi and lighter reads. They're really good.

 

For the heavier (but not longer per sé) reads, I recommend these absolute classics if you haven't read them already:

Foundation

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Dune

Flow my Tears, the Policeman Said

Solar Lottery

Eye in the Sky

A Scanner Darkly

Neuromancer

1984

 

All of these are very far from YA though. I'm too old shdjgjhdsf GOMENASAI

Oh my gosh thank you, I love that list already. I saw the play for 1984, it was really interesting. Do you know if the book is close to it?

 

I've also started reading a lot of books farther from YA, scary realization of getting older...yikes

Saving people hunting things family business

To Sleep In A Sea Of Stars by Christopher Paolini is a great sci-fi book! He's the author of Eragon. This, of course, is his first adult book and its bigger than Inheritance! Now just an fyi, there is a lot of language, which is why its an adult book lol and he did a LOT of research! You want sci-fi this is IT.
Rangers Apprentice by John Flanagan (hilarious series! And he wrote Brotherband Chronicles which does collab with Rangers Apprentice but I highly recommend reading Rangers Apprentice first!)
The Hunger Games (wish I remembered the author name!)
The Last Apprentice (forgot the author name too.) I'm gonna say that's a sci-fi because it has ghosts, witches, and so on.
I LOVE The Maze Runner! Wonderfully written but what happens to a certain character in the last book I got SO mad I threw the book at a wall :( do you skip that page too?

Dang that first book is long! Although, there's no time like a lockdown to read that. I'm heading to a local "hand-me down" book store soon and will definitely be checking for all of these books, so thank you!! For the last one, a little ghost and witches in books never hurt anyone lol

 

Yeeeees another Maze Runner fan!! When I say I sobbed during Death Cure, I sobbed. It was rough :( my friend just read that part for the first time today and I kinda feel bad. This is also why I haven't gotten brave enough to read Crank Palace. I need to stockpile on tissues and mental sanity first

Let's see, I don't know what

Let's see, I don't know what you might be into but I do have a list

 

-Animorphs series by K.A Applegate (sci-fi series with 54 main titles and 11 extra stories, its long but each book is pretty short, coming at 100 pages each book, give or take, pretty easy to read too, and even tho is technically a children's series its very easy to enjoy as an adult too. Yes the covers are like that...)

-Coraline by Neil Gaiman (short book, also for children but easy to enjoy as adult, its technically horror, but its for children, so its tamer, but still very creepy)

-Warrior Cats series by Erin Hunter (this one might be harder to read, because it has way too many characters, way too many books, and its also a little bit violent and sad, and its with cats so.. even worse, but its interesting)

-Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan (and pretty much any books series by Riordan, especially if you like greek mithology)

-Raymie Nightingale by Kate DiCamillo (a children's book, but its very sweet and I love it)

-The Silent Companions by Laura Purcell (if you like horror books)

-The Raven Boys series by Maggie Stievfater (young adult, has romance but even I enjoyed it and I absolutely hate romantic young adult books lol)

-The Golden Compass series by Philip Pullman (they're long and kind of hard to read, but really interesting, especially the second book)

-The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas (I don't qualify it as a hard to read book, but it has some heavy themes, and if you're specially sensitive to certain topics it could be potentially triggering but it is really good)

-All American Boys by Jason Raynolds and Brendan Kiely (very similar to the hate u give, but still just as good, this books made me cry)

-This Savage Song and Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab (not my cup of tea, but it does have an interesting premise, young adult with romance, like most young adults unfortunately lol)

-City of Ghosts and Tunnel of Bones by Victoria Schwab (girl can see ghosts, haven't read it yet so I can't speak for it, but does sound cool)

-The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankestein by Kiersten White (horror, retelling of Frankestein)

-Good Omens by Neil Gaiman (If you saw the show and liked it, the book is also fun)

-Tunnels series by Roderick Gordon (interesting premise, but it kind of falls flat on the last books, read at your own discretion lol)

-Pretty much every Neil Gaiman book, he has hundreds, and they range from fantasy to sci-fi, and a bunch of other topics

 

And that's pretty much every book I remember at the moment lol, hope at least one of these caughts your attention

Dragons I own and love as if they were my children (Now in all their Hidden World Glory):

Grandcanyon - Male Sandwraith

Firebringer - Female Monstrous Nightmare

Iceberg - Male Groncicle

Grimmer - Female Whispering Death

Shockjaw - Male Skrill

Seafoam - Male Scauldron

Swampdiver - Female Mudraker

Torchnight - Male Monstrous Nightmare

Ironclaw - Female Armorwing

Acidrain - Female Flame Whipper

Goldwing - Female Razorwhip

Sirencall - Male Deathsong

Shiverbeast - Female Stormcutter

Oceaneyes - Female Raincutter

Bonfire - Male Monstrous Nightmare

Bass & Wood - Male Hideous Zippleback

Pinkspark - Female Singetail

Lonquimay - Male Eruptodon

Gildfang - Male Thunderdrum

Solar - Female Skrill

Serpentide - Female Grapple Grounder

Frostsky - Male Shivertooth

Stingbark - Male Triple Stryke

Nibble - Male Threadtail

Moonstone - Female Gronckle (Moonrock in game cause it didnt let me call her Moonstone)

Snowpine - Male Chimeragon

Wildmoss - Male Elder Sentinel

Mercy - Male Deathgripper

Dimflight - Female Deadly Nadder

Gala & Xia - Female Seastormer

Shimmer - Male Hobgobbler

Ruffruner - Male Night Light

HYDRA (Henry, Ymir, Diego and Rah) - Male Snapstrapper

Alaska & Blizzard - Female Zipplewraith

 

Grandcanyon - Male Sand Wraith

Hidden World:

The first dragon that Parakeet owned, since is the one she helped escape from the Hunters. Basically the Dad Friend of the Dragons, endless pacience and loyalty. Loves to bury himself in sand, and often runs around in two legs

 

Firebringer - Female Monstrous Nightmare

Hidden World:

(they did you dirty girl)

Not the brightest Monstrous Nightmare in the bunch, but she tries, she is the first dragon Parakeet ever trained since hatched, she acts like an annoying big sister and likes to bite a lot, an habit that she got from when she was a baby, and Parakeet never corrected. She also saves Parakeet from falling a lot

 

Iceberg - Male Groncicle

Hidden World:

Enjoys Berks climate, doesnt particularly enjoy Firebringer's attention, likes to chill (hehe) with Parakeet rather than do flips in the air, prefers islands with snow, and is a picky adventurer. If dragons can eyeroll, he's doing it all the time. He just doesn't have the patience to deal with his new trainer but still does, cause he appreciates the help she offered him

 

Grimmer - Female Whispering Death

Hidden World:

When Valka gave Parakeet a Whispering Death egg, she wasnt very sure to be able to train her properly, since Whispering Deaths are terrifying. Now she thinks her Nightmare Eyes are endearing and even climbs into her mouth to show how gentle she can be. Although Grimmer is prone to jealousy she has a soft spot for Seafoam, whom, alongside Parakeet, she saved from a sinking Outcast ship as an egg

 

Shockjaw - Male Skrill

Hidden World:

A very hard to read guy, Parakeet isnt sure of his personality, since he doesnt seem to show any, even tho he got him as an egg. He loves to fly and do tricks, but outside it, he's a mystery. If there's anything Parakeet learned from him, is that he is competitive, and enjoys racing, so Shockjaw is her main go to dragon from when she wants to race

 

Seafoam - Male Scauldron

Hidden World:

He likes to spit his boiling hot water at people when he's happy. Look out. Parakeet has her shield in hand at all times because of this. He's learning to just create bubbles, but it's a work in progress. Considers Grimmer his mom, mostly because she doesn't let other dragons aproach him much

 

Swampdiver - Female Mudraker

Hidden World:

Loves to swim around, with all of her family members, and sleep on her trainer's chest (wich was cute when she was small...) she probably believes Parakeet is another small dragon since she always tries to drag her into the water and not let her go. That or she's trying to drown her... Let's hope for the first one

 

Torchnight - Male Monstrous Nightmare

Hidden World:

(look how they massacred my boy)

Altho not the first Monstrous Nightmare she trained, Torchnight prooved to be a very hard case to work with, since the dragon would just not listen to her and go off to his own business, often hitting her with his tail without realizing. The only command he seems to understand on land is when Parakeet hits her chest to call him, wich is when he just launches himself towards her. It was cute when he was younger and it worked, now it's coming back to haunt her and pin her to the ground 

 

Ironclaw - Female Armorwing

Hidden World:

Because of the abuse of the Hunters, Ironclaw is very shy and defensive, but with care and the other dragons help she's coming to be a very curious girl. She loves to watch Parakeet work and will often try to take her helmet off to put into her armor

 

Acidrain - Female Flame Whipper

Hidden World:

A mischievious prankster who loves to play hide and seek with her trainer, she always cheats by hiding in places Parakeet can't access on her own. Likes to surprise and scare dragons and people alike, as well as sleep on the job. Loses her tail all the time whenever she gets scared

 

Goldwing - Female Razorwhip

Hidden World:

Responsible and serious, almost doesnt like to play, only when she's sure Parakeet is done with any quests she has, talk about the mom of the group. Rarely plays with the other dragons, gets along the best with Grandcanyon, silently judges the rest, come on girl, you gotta have more fun.

 

Sirencall - Male Death Song

Hidden World:

A sweet, sweet boy. Playful and kind, like a little brother for the rest of the dragons, also a little prankster, he likes to sing to lure other dragons, and then just flies around with a flock of dragons behind him. Kind of hard to explain to other trainers that he's a bit excentric, to not say otherwise. If fed up Parakeet will start to sing real loud to shut him up, wich  offends him but succesfully gets the point across

 

Shiverbeast - Female Stormcutter

Hidden World:

Surprisingly gets scared of storms, she can't fly through one, Parakeet learned this the hard way, loves to swim and "fly" underwater, a great explorer of the great seas. Well, the sea during storms is scary, perhaps that's the reason. Rather small for her breed, but she's also young, so it's to be expected, she eats as much as the others after all

 

Oceaneyes - Female Raincutter

 

Hidden World:

Like most Raincutters, Oceaneyes loves to fly through rain (looking at you Shiverbeast), and do tricks, the only problem is that in the rain she becomes more slick and it gets hard to get a good grip on her, so no tricks allowed until we get a saddle for you girl, she gets moody if the weather isn't optimal for her, if there's high winds, or too much sun she rather sleep. Loves to fly off in the morning dew, and Parakeet would love to join her, if she was a morning gal. "Also, hehe, duck feet" Parakeet, probably

 

Bonfire - Male Monstrous Nightmare

Hidden World:

(oh god why)

Much younger than the other Monstrous Nightmare, he is like the spoiled little brother. A master at playing victim, likes to sleep on top of Firebringer and Torchnight, even when neither of them like it most of the time he gets his way. Likes adventuring but gets scared really easily, so Parakeet can't fly with him through the night. When he lights himself on fire his flames are weaker than most other Nightmares, Parakeet still doesnt understand why. His smaller size, once tought by Parakeet to be because he was younger, is actually due to him being a runt, same reason why his flames are weaker

 

Bass & Wood - Male Hideous Zippleback

Hidden World:

Bass is the gas, Wood is the spark, they hate each other and are constantly snapping and trying to bite the other, Parakeet has to pet both at the same time if she wants to have peace. They barely get anything done, including flying, except when they're practicing with Astrid and Parakeet, that's the only time they'll work together

 

Pinkspark - Female Singetail

Hidden World:

She's more wild than trained, absolutely refuses to get a saddle on her, so Parakeet has given up on that. Sometimes sleeps in the stables, sometimes flies away for entire weeks before coming back to Parakeet, needless to say she was terrified at first and didnt sleep right until she knew Pinkspark was safe. Equal times playful and serious, gets reasonably along with the other dragons.

 

Lonquimay - Male Eruptodon

Hidden World:

He likes napping more than he does anything else, and Parakeet can relate to that. He doesnt often do anything else other than sleeping or eating, but Parakeet likes to fly around with him when he feels like it, cause she feels high and mighty on top of the dragon. Other than that, she also enjoys napping with him or just reading some books while resting alongside him.

 

Gildfang - Male Thunderdrum

Hidden World:

Stubborn like any Thunderdrum, Gildfang likes to submerge himself underwater when he doesnt feel like listening to his trainer, prefers to travel through water, and is faster that way. When traveling underwater his highligths become more prominent and help him see around especially at night or at very deep level wich is why Parakeet allows him to keep going deeper underwater (even tho its terrifying). Gets rather well with the other dragons, especially Seafoam and Shiverbeast, whom are his water loving buddies. 

 

Solar - Female Skrill

Hidden World:

Miss new addition to the family, she knows she's perfect and isn't shy to show off, kinda makes Shockjaw jealous, no matter how hard Parakeet tries to show both of them the same amount of love. She is friendlier than Shockjaw so most vikings prefer to deal with her rather than the other Skrill, but one thing that she can't surpass Shockjaw in is racing. But she is a sore loser so don't tell her that

 

Serpentide - Female Grapple Grounder

Hidden World:

Parakeet didn't know about the existence of this dragon, so when she got a Grapple Grounder egg she was really excited, but after reading a bit about them she became more and more doubtful about raising one, thankfully after hatching Serpentide dispelled all fears with her calm personality, one that would only turn stubborn during battle tactics, where the only way you can get her to back down is some good ol fashioned dragon nip to calm her down.

 

Frostsky - Male Shivertooth

Hidden World:

Surprisingly a mature fellow, not as playful as some Shivertooths are, or so Parakeet thought, until she found him and Firebringer playing pranks on a very tired Iceberg, aparently he is more of a play pranks in teams kind of guy, so she and Frostsky often go to the twins to play some good and non malicious pranks to any Berk residents.

 

Stingbark - Male Triple Stryke

Hidden World:

Stingbark definetly has taken a like to Sleuther, Dagur's Triple Stryke, so Parakeet has definetly (and kind of against her own wishes) gone to Dagur to train Stingbark, and altho they both differ in more than a variety of different stances Parakeet does listen to some of Dagur's advice (but she will never admit to it). Stingbark is civil and calm but when paired with Sleuther and his Rider he can get rather into it, Parakeet can say for sure that the days she's trained Stingbark are the days she's felt the most tired afterwards.

 

Nibble - Male Threadtail

Hidden World:

Altho he started being incredibly iperactive as a child, but growing up he calmed down, even to the point of getting lazy, wich Parakeet doesn't appreciate because she loved playing with baby Nibble and now hes like a teenager whos annoyed at his guardian, definetly still likes to set eels on fire (wich Sirencall later eats... I guess the system works for them)

 

Moonstone - Female Gronckle

Hidden World:

Mom Friend, cares for the dragons and definetly enjoys the company of baby dragons specially. Treats Parakeet like another baby because.... well Parakeet. Loves hanging out with Meatlug and Fishlegs (and Fishmeat) and Parakeet has definetly have long chats with Fishlegs about Gronckles.

 

Snowpine - Male Chimeragon

Hidden World:

Parakeet's still unsure how this Chimeragon ended up in her hands but she's glad it did, Snowpine enjoys the winter climate of Berk and is an avid fan of all things sweet. He adores children and lets them decorates his crown of scales with diverse Snoggletog decorations, and Parakeet wonders how on earth such a sweet creature could have been created by such a cold entity.

 

Wildmoss - Male Elder Sentinel

Hidden World

Being able to stay still by a worrying amount of time, Parakeet wonders why would he ever choose to stay with her, she is grateful of course, but the dragon always seems to miss his home dearly. A source of comfort for quite a few dragons, particularly Ironclaw and Mercy who have suffered abuse by their captors, he still seems content enough to stay by Parakeet's side.

 

Mercy - Male Deathgripper

Hidden World

Confused and stunned this Deathgripper ended up in New Berk scared out of his mind, but with the help of Fishlegs and Parakeet, and of course Firebringer, he ended up finding that not all humans are evil, he's very distrustfull of men, with the small exception of Fishlegs (but he's on thin ice), very few people are able to aproach him unscathed, Parakeet being no exception, she has quite a few scars from treating a scared and scarred Mercy. Most other dragons are afraid of him, but Ironclaw seems to know that he has gone trough a similar past as her, Wildmoss seems to be his support, and Firebringer is the first dragon to have given him a chance, along with her Rider

 

Dimflight - Female Deadly Nadder

Hidden World

A proper Nadder, she likes preaning herself for most of the day, also enjoys the attention of all dragons and people, doesn't particularly like fighting but if you bother her she will retaliate. Gets along with the other dragons as long as they don't ignore her (Shockjaw did and now they don't get along, she's petty)

 

Gala & Xia - Female Seastormer

Hiddden World

These ladies are a force to be reckon with, strong and fast, laser focused in, nothing can distract them if they have an objective in mind, bred to be unstoppable in battle they're not used to Parakeet's unconditional love, or relaxing, but they sure do love shiny things

 

Shimmer - Male Hobgobbler

Hidden World

Scarily stealthy, always scares Parakeet whenever he appears out of nowhere, he even scares other dragons (specially Firebringer) with this ability, zero braincells apparently, but a good fella, Parakeet doesn't ride him bc he's too small, but enjoys carrying him like a puppy, and apparently he also enjoys this.

 

Ruffrunner - Male Night Light

Hidden World

He doesn't spend that much time with Parakeet, he's still a momma's boy after all, tho Parakeet really didn't care much for him when he was a baby, now as an adult she's impressed by his growth, both in personality and in size (vertical by that matter), gets along the best with Firebringer, who used to carry him on her mouth like a Monstrous Nightmare cub when he was a baby (Parakeet tried to explain to FB that Ruff wasnt a Monstrous Nightmare cub but neither dragon listened to her)

Stay whelmed and keep feeling the aster

All I have to say is...wow and thank you. It'll take me a bit to look up all of these but I appreciate it! I actually did see the Good Omens show and absolutely loved it; I never realized it was a book tho, interesting. I do like a little romance in my books occasionally (Pride and Prejudice, anyone?), so that won't hold me back from checking these out :)

Scott Westerfeld's "Uglies" series. Science fiction, set in the future, flawed utopia. I fell in love with it, my favorite book series to this day! Would highly recommend. I also read an article years ago that they were planning to make a movie off it, but since it's been so long and still hasn't come into fruition, I'm skeptical it'll ever happen...

The Reality Dysfunction by
The Reality Dysfunction by Peter F Hamilton. Huge, vast, awesome tech, living sentient space ships, interstellar civilisations and politics with ancient space artefacts and a ‘great filter’ type event where the aliens back off and say good luck, and the well-imagined fear and chaos as the tech loses its advantage over the threat and people are forced to question age-old beliefs and face perennial issues that haven’t been left behind by the amazing technological advances.  
 
Blindsight by Peter Watts
His central thesis that not only is consciousness not required for complex intelligence and problem solving but is actually detrimental to evolutionary fitness is for me the most unique idea I've read in the genre. It flips the intelligent alien trope on its head that for too long has self-aggrandized the sanctity of self-awareness as a given.

Wings of Fire is the best

I totally suggest wings of Fire. That book series is AWESOME. It's like 18 books, not including graphic novels, which there are 6 soon. It's dragons and prophecies ALL THE WAY. So check it out.
