The Literary Blog Hop - Dare to Sci-Fi!

Dare to Sci-Fi!!

Literary Giveaway Blog Hop
Hosted by Judith @ Leeswamme's Blog

I am offering one of my favorite books of all time to share for The Literary Blog Hop. I know there are a lot of people who "don't read science-fiction" but there's always room for an exception.

It would have to be an amazingly well written with a strong woman, an exciting plot, and an unforgettable romance.

The Ship Who Sang (Brainship, #1)The Ship Who Sang
by Anne McCaffrey
Mass Market Paperback, 248 pages
Published December 12th 1985 by Del Rey (first published 1969)

Helva had been born human

...but only her brain had been saved - saved to be schooled, programmed and implanted in the sleek titanium body of an intergalactic scout ship. But first she had to choose a human partner - male or female - to share her exhilarating escapades in space!

Jennan bowed toward the central control pillar where Helva was. Helva's personal preference crystallized at that precise moment and for that particular reason: Jennon, alone of all the men, had addressed his remarks directly at her physical presence - even thought she could pick up his image anywhere in the ship - regardless of the fact that her body was behind massive metal walls.

Helva didn't understand that she fell in love with Jennan that evening... she didn't realize that together they would have to face one of the most grisly holocausts. 

This is one of my library treasures. Just sharing about it makes me want to reread it again. But... I'll have tissues handy. I remember it's worth it, but.... no. I can't say. You must get this book if you don't win it.

Available to WIN:

1 print copy of The Ship Who Sang shipped from me to you, anywhere. (Well... any address. And not, like, on the moon, as I've mentioned before. But pretty much anywhere -ish. Oh, you know what I mean. No taking advantage of grandiose statements. Sheesh!) See my normal rules under the About tab.
