The Crystal Singer | Anne McCaffrey
post image

#LyricalApril #day7 #Diamonds Not only does this trilogy stand for today's prompt, in this SciFi series the world is run using crystal technology and the only people who can cut them are crystal singers, people with perfect pitch who sing harmonics to stop the crystal shattering as they cut. So very original & also my favourite SciFi series of all time #READATHONBLOB @Liberty

Cinfhen Nice one @Lizpixie 💗♦️💗♦️what book don't you have??? 3y
Lynnsoprano @Cinfhen And even if @Lizpixie doesn't own it, she's read it😄😄 3y
Suet624 I agree with @Cinfhen and @Lynnsoprano! 😂😂😂 3y
Lizpixie @Cinfhen @Lynnsoprano @Suet624 it's amazing what you can do with a chronic illness and 30yrs of hoarding!☺️🕒📚📚📚 3y

For @Liberty's #ReadathonBlob

These books are my equivalent of an old comfy sweater. I know there are new books to read, but I can't help but come back to these. Back in middle school, I borrowed these from the library countless times. Once I owned a copy, I carried it around like a security blanket. Isaac Asimov was my first #scifi love.

JanuarieTimewalker13 He seemed like a very good man to me. I have to read one of his books. I read his wiki and I got a very good feeling about him. 3y
ScrappyMags I pick up my Judy Blume books every now and then. They are old and dear friends! 💗💗💗 3y

Gezemice @TobeyTheScavengerMonk Thanks! That's so cool that we both like it! 👍 3y
Laalaleighh I ? Enders game. My bfs little cousin had it as assigned reading at the beach last year and he kept putting it off and I kept encouraging him to read it and by the end of the week you couldn't pry it out of his hands and when it got to *that* part he just yelled "OH MY GOD NO WAY" and looked at me and said "did you know this was coming?" And I just smiled and went back to my book. But his mom asked him how it was afterwards and he said 3y

Laalaleighh "It was lit, mom" -so I think I won. Although I then had to explain the meaning of "lit" to two generations of older members of the bf's family with his oldest cousin pulling YouTube videos to try and supplement my explanations (edited) 3y
Gezemice That was lit of you, to inspire an appreciation of great lit in the young'uns. @Laalaleighh 👍😁 3y
readinginthedark I have that shirt, too! And the book is amazing! 3y

For the #READATHONBLOB I have to post about Station Eleven. My favorite book of last year and one of my all time favs. It was so gorgeous and I just loved it. Honorable mentions are Saga and The Passage.

This is not the actual cover I have but there are a TON of covers out there for this one. Sci-fi was and still is a favorite genre of mine. This is a classic, that is soooo amazing and accessible unlike other classics in the genre. Basically, a man goes into the woods, comes back out and everyone is dead. Then he tries to survive... #readathonblob

#READATHONBLOB

It's very hard to pick one favorite sci-fi, so I'm going with my favorite sci-fi audiobook read in the last year or so. This one is SO GOOD. 😍

AmyG I, too, loved this audiobook. 3y
Lindy I took the paper copy with me on a trip two years ago; I figured that if I was taking only one book (in addition to digital selections), it might as well be a big one. Not only was it an excellent choice, it also brings back great memories of that trip when I see it. 😎 3y
Tav I too 💙 Seveneves! Did you know Neal has a new book out 6/6? 3y
sprainedbrain @Tav oooooh, I did not know that! Stacked. Thank you. 😃 3y

I'm going with a sci-fi trilogy, because I can't choose a favourite from the three. I don't know if everyone would consider this to be sci-fi, but I think it fits the type. #READATHONBLOB @Liberty

Gezemice Ooh I love this trilogy. I mean, as much as one can love something so terrifying. But the writing! The creativity! Awesome. 👍👍❤❤ 3y
