11 January 2011


This year, I've decided to focus more on Fantasy books: reading fantasy books I haven't read before, watching out for debut fantasy authors and so on. I've even joined Fantasy-Faction so that I can discuss these books and authors with other people.

I will also be taking part in Caroline's (
Portrait of a Woman) Anne McCaffrey Reading Challenge for 2011! I like the fact that the challenge is flexible, so it means I can read as many or as few books as I want. If you want to find out more about the challenge, follow the link to Caroline's blog post hereYou can also visit Anne McCaffrey's blog (link here) for more news and information about her.

So the books I'm planning to read in 2011 are 'The Dragonriders of Pern' (the original trilogy):

* Dragonflight. Review here.
* Dragonquest
* The White Dragon

I'll start with these 3, and see where I go from there. I will also review the books and post here.

I'm interested to see if anyone has read these books before? Any opinions?

I've heard a lot a about these but have never read them. Maybe I'll give them a shot as well...

Yay for fantasy! I'll see you on Fantasy Faction :)

I'm tempted to sign up for the challenge. I've not read any Anne McCaffrey, but as such a big name in the genre I feel like I should :) Thanks for the link!

I love the Dragonriders of Pern series! They were some of my favorite books when I was younger. I can hardly wait to hear what you think of them.

How did I manage to go so long without hearing about these books?

Demitria, go on - join us!
Thanks Heather for the recommendation- its reassuring when you pick up something completely unknown, to know that someone else likes it!
Mithril - I shall see you on FF then :)

I haven't read these books, but I hope to change that one day as I've heard such great things about them.

I have a little something for you over at my blog.
