Top Ten Tuesday is held over at That Artsy Reader Girl, where every week bloggers list their top 10 being asked about. This week the topic is about cozy, wintry reads, but I went a different direction entirely: these are the authors and their book series I want to read, but haven’t yet because there like 20-30 books in each series and I feel like there should be a book oracle somewhere that I can ask if I can start anywhere, and just read and not miss out on anything that came before. Whew.
I actually think I might be too ambitious with this one because Connelly has a whole interconnected universe with his books: I just reviewed a book wherein a new character of his meets Harry, and the Lincoln Lawyer series ties into Harry’s series as well. Dammit.
Did you hear that he thinks Tom Cruise doesn’t have enough of a presence to play Reacher? I don’t actually know what Reacher in the books is supposed to look like, but if anyone has read this series, please let me know if this is true lol I will say that the Jack Reacher movies — the second more than the first — are solidly entertaining. They’re not definitive examples of great movies, but still enjoyable, right? That’s why I started thinking about getting into this series. Has anyone read these books?
I liked The Bone Collector — you remember the movie with Denzel Washington and Angeline Jolie? Turns out they’re thinking of making a series out of this book series and I find myself thinking about the movie and this book series again — and yes the thought of a tv series made me think of this one.
I actually think I read one of these YEARS ago and it’s always lingered at the back of my mind as a series to get back to, but of course, I haven’t.
First off, this is a detective agency in Botswana which right away has me interested, but dear lord it’s 19 books long and this is when I need said book oracle because can I start with book 19?!?! Sighs.
This book and Rankin are often held up as the best of BritCrime and 22 books long. Dammit (again).
Also, yes, these are all male authors because next week I’ll be doing a list of female authors along the same lines.
Have you read any of these books? Do you think I should risk a read mid-series?
