Oh boy – I read a lot! Usually have three books going at once! Just finished the last Longmire book by Craig Johnson. Currently reading the Kate Daniels novel by Ilona Andrews (intense fantasy/romance), Worlds of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson (fantasy – massive book). Ready to start the latest Lee Child Jack Reacher book. Loved JRR Tolkien The Lord of the Rings. Read it again at least once a year. Loved the original Dragon books by Anne McCaffrey (Dragonflight, DragonQuest, The White Dragon). Really enjoy CJ Cherryh’s books (SF and fantasy). Her long running Foreigner series is quite good, but I like the Fortress series the best. Also Rider at the Gate and Cloud’s Rider (horses that mentally communicate with their rider, very cool), fantasy with some scary stuff thrown in. Mercedes Lackey Valdemar series was good (again, horses that communicate with their rider). Last non-fiction I read was Rocket Men, story of Apollo 8. Happy reading!
Hah your reading sounds not horribly different from mine! I enjoy Cherryh also, I think the Rider duology are probably my favorites of hers that I’ve read. (I book shop at thrift stores, it can be limiting) I liked Valdemar, some more than others, but wasn’t swept away by it. McCaffery I agree it’s the original Pern series along with the Dragonsinger trilogy that grabbed me, the books seemed to decline as time went on and I’m not taken with her other works. I think it’s the idea of the dragons and firelizards I loved. I’ve read and loved most of Clarke’s novels, isn’t it something about Oumuamua? For back to the original topic, I enjoyed Heinlein’s YA works growing up, and Clifford D. Simak is fun. The older Xanth novels of Piers Anthony can be fun too, though they ended up becoming too forced and precious.
