The Tower and the Hive | Anne McCaffrey

Yeah, I know it‘s 6.30am in the morning here in Sydney, but anytime is ice cream time right? Isn‘t that one of the perks of being an adult?! This is a Connoisseurs Native Collection, with Macadamias crusted in a lemon myrtle sugar plus a swirling of an Australian finger lime & ginger sauce in a vanilla bean ice cream. It was soooo good! Paired with the concluding novel of The Tower And The Hive series, which is also very good.🍋🌰🍨 #HSreadathon

sherryvdh Ice cream for breakfast is absolutely healthy. There's apparently research to back it up. 😁 https://home.remedydaily.com/2017/04/25/study-says-eating-ice-cream-for-breakfas... 1d
wanderinglynn I am totally on board with ice cream in the morning. Ice cream is always a good idea. 1d

Damia's Children | Anne McCaffrey

Bk3 in The Tower And The Hive series follows the third generation of Gwyn/Raven/Lyon Talents. Along with the alien Mrdini race,who have had their own battles with the deadly Hivers,a new fleet of naval spacers have found a dead Hiver ship. After retrieving it for study, an escape pod with a live Queen is found and brought back to Moon base to give both humans & Mrdini a chance for insights into the race. But not everyone is happy. #HSreadathon

Megabooks You are taking me right back to middle school! My best friend Robyn and I read this series and a couple of others. #nostalgia!! 1d
Lizpixie @Megabooks me too! I think I was 16 when I read my first McCaffrey. Loved the Pern series, the Crystal Singer trilogy and this one. I think the only series I haven‘t read is The Ship Who Sang which I‘ve been combing 2ndhand bookshops to find for years.🚀 1d

Another favourite from McCaffrey. Book two in The Tower And The Hive series, this follows the Rowans youngest daughter and her development as a Prime Talent and dealing with a hostile alien attack. But, as I said with The Rowan, it‘s more about the characters themselves which is a pleasure to read as she writes them so well. Multigenerational space saga. Highly recommend.⭐️ #HSreadathon

At the 2/3rds point of the #HSreadathon And I‘ve read 15 books over more than a 60hr period(can‘t give exact times coz my timer kept resetting itself!) Is there anyone else doing this month long challenge? If so, what‘s your favourite read so far? Mine had to be The Dakota Winters, it took a while to leave me, that book. All great books should be like that. #readathon #20daysDone11toGo

Damia | Anne McCaffrey

This is the 2nd book in The Tower And The Hive series by McCaffrey which is a multigenerational SciFi saga series. This book centres on The Rowans daughter, Damia(obviously)and her growing up in love with Afra, her mothers T4 Tower subordinate. I think Damia is my favourite out of the whole pride, she‘s sparky, sassy & independent and she knows what she wants & is determined to have it. #HSreadathon
