If you’re new to my blog, welcome to Top Ten Tuesday. It’s held over at That Artsy Reader Girl, where every week bloggers list their top 10 being asked about. This week’s topic is those auto-buy authors where we don’t even have to think about it, we get them. Kind of. I’m kind of hit and miss with this one, I must admit.
James Patterson and Candice Fox: Patterson’s co-authored books are kind of hit and miss for me, but the Harriet Blue series with Candice Fox is a MUST have.
Candice Fox and her Crimson Lake series: OMG. SO GOOD. The odd couple of PIs in Australia and they just work like a charm.
David Baldacci and his Memory Man series: Amos Decker is such an interesting character, and has been for a couple of books now — but I am needing more from the next one even though yes, I am still going to read it. I can’t quite let go of Amos just yet.
Balli Kaur Jaswal is the author of Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows and The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters (review to come): I never expected to love both these as much as I did, but I adore them. I see bits of myself and my family and the people I know in these characters in a way I can’t say the same about a non-Indian character I might relate to in different ways.
AA Dhand: His Harry Virdee series is brilliant. Mysteries and family and brown-on-brown racism are all parts of this series, and it’s completely and utterly engrossing.
Jane Harper: The Lost Man redeemed her for me after the lacklustre Force of Nature. It’s enough to make me consider the third in the Aaron Falk series again even though I hated Force of Nature.
