RIP Anne McCaffrey

We lost a wonderful author this week, Anne McCaffrey.  Mrs. McCaffrey passed away on Monday at the age of 85.  She wasn't a young adult author but many teens have enjoyed her books (including yours truly!) which are combination science fiction and fantasy books.  Most of her books are set on the world of Pern, which was colonized by earth and has dragons.  If you're looking to start a new fantasy/scifi series and aren't afraid to try an adult series, then I definitely recommend these!  Mrs. McCaffrey has written over 30 books so I'll include a little reading guide below.

Dragonriders of Pern
1. Dragonflight
2. Dragonquest
3. The White Dragon
4. Dragonseye

Harper Hall
1. Dragonsong
2. Dragonsinger
3. Dragondrums

Renegades of Pern
1. Moreta: Dragonlady of Pern
2. Nerilka's Story
3. Dragonsdawn
4. All the Weyrs of Pern
5. The Dolphins of Pern
6. Dolphins' Bell
7. Masterharper of Pern
8. Skies of Pern

The New Adventures of Pern

2. Dragon's Fire
