    I'm surprised that no-one up to now has mentioned Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett.
    That has now been remedied.

    Oh, and there's the Enchanted Forest Chronicles. Hilarious, and with genuinely intelligent dragons AND [well, A] princess!

    Ah! Yes on Terry Pratchett!

    Thank you for the suggestions, everyone. I have a decent list to start on!

    I thought about it, but I don't really think it was a very interesting dragon. Everything else around the dragon is great, but the dragon is rather boring.

    I really like the Dragon. It remains feeling alien but also driven by very believable needs...
    And then there is Errol! Ah, what love can do to a Guy's insides

    I've been getting terrible headaches when I read for more than half an hour (stupid eye appointment is still a week away) so atm I'm trying to save my vision for super important things (like reading this forum ) ... so I'm stuck with whatever audiobooks the library has online. ATM that means John Grisham's The Litigators which I'm finding more amusing than I anticipated ... I'm in the queue for some Rick Riordan though.

    So I am reading my first YAish book since I was a YA. It is called The Lost Property Office and so far I am enjoying it immensely. It is well written, and I am fond of the main characters. A nice fantasy novel and the cover is awesome.

    I am shocked that no one has mentioned Anne McCaffrey's Pern series. Though not exactly medieval style (though somewhat, maybe?), it is the first books I think of when someone says "dragons".
