Harry Potter The King Killer’s Chronicles The Friday Night Knitting Club
DI Helen Grace’s series by M. J Arlidge
Jan Karon’s Mitford series.
The Dresden Files
He has another “Codex Allera” series that’s great! I enjoyed it even more 🙂
I read that also. And he has another maybe-series book out.
It’s just too bad he’s had such a rough few years, otherwise we’d get more books!
Cinder Spires is the new series. I read book 1, waiting on two. Like his others he’s created endearing characters.
@Mari He got divorced and then later engaged. He moved which took forever because there were delays with the new house (like over a year and a half). I believe there was some medical stuff, too. So he’s been having trouble finding time and a quiet place to work. I think things have settled a bit, so he should be getting back into it.
Thanks! Well, those are all major stressors, plus just getting older.
I love the Richard Jury mysteries by Martha Grimes.
Louise Penny Inspector Gamache series. Mystery wasn’t normal my first choice of read but I fell into this series big time.
Armistead Maupin – Tales of the City
Just about to type this. I reread it every few years. Grew up in northern CA and discovered them when I was away at college. Reread them in the east coast when I was home sick.

harry potter ….. charlaine harris’ sookie stackhouse …. deborah geary’s witch books ….
Harry Potter, duh!! 😂😂 I seldom start series because I am always afraid that I might not like it and will be left in this awkward position of knowing too much and wanting to know a little more and yet hating to read it…you know what I’m talking about right? But I’ve come to adore Jay Kristoff’s Nevernight and eagerly waiting for the next book..😁
I have the same fear of starting a new series. Glad it’s not just me haha
Such a relief, isn’t it? Knowing that it’s never ‘just us’……😁😁
Alexander McCall Smith – The Ladies No. 1 Detective Agency. The BBC tv adaptations were brilliant too. http://www.alexandermccallsmith.co.uk/books/
I have grown fond of Maisie Dobbs and now on the last book! 🙁
I like that series, too.

Not dumb! Great interpretation!

Helen Grace series by M. J. Arlidge.
The sheriff Longmire series from Craig Johnson I wanted to get used to Rocky Mountain ways LOL
They are so much better than the show, such a dry sense of humor. I do get tried of the Native American mysticism sometimes though
Yep. I also get tired of him saying yep. I drove to Wyoming specifically expecting people to yep me to death and there wasn’t one yepper there. I also find the sex scenes little odd.

Louise Penny has a wonderful series – her main character is the Chief (and in some of the books “former” chief) of the Sûreté du Québec. The book evolves around a small community near Quebec called Three Pines. You can of course read them separately, but reading them in order is better, as you kearn more about the various charachters. I am not a big mystery person, so it amazes me I got so hooked on her – her writing style just brings everyone to life.
My fav too❤
I think they are wonderful because, even though it’s a murder mystery, there are so many uplifting moments and so many references to cultural items. I always feel like a better person when I’m reading them.
Jack Reacher by @Lee and The Pendergrast series by @Cozy
Outlander and Harry Potter. Such gems! 🙂
Definilty Harry Potter but also Charlie bone by Jenny nimmo. Also Cj box’s, Joe Pickett. MC beaton has 2 series I like: Agatha raisin and the other hamish mcbeth

The Hangman’s Daughter series. Inspector Garmache series by Louis Penny.and series by Ken Follett
Reading Hangman’s now. Literally just started the first one today! 😀
I hope you enjoy it. I wish the author wrote faster
As a kid it would have to be the Laura Ingalls Wilder books, but as an adult I love the Cormoron Strike books!!!!!
I forgot how much I loved the Laura Ingalls Wilder books!
I love the Tradd Street series by Karen White.
Amelia Peabody, Joseph Rouletabille, Harry Potter, Power of Five, and Vicky Bliss
“Bourne” series by Robert Ludlum.
How do the movies compare to the books?
The Hunger Games before the movies
Harry Potter always and forever!!! ❤️📚⚡️🏰⌛️🔮
HP and Outlander
Louise Penny’s Gamache series, but also I recommend very very highly, Eliot Pattison’s series about Inspector Shan Tao Yun. It takes place in Tibet with much heart, great plots along with strong denunciation of Chinese oppression of the Tibetan people. Not sure what the first one is, perhaps Skull Mantra.
Love Louise Penny!
Maisie Dobbs and Claire Ferguson.
I like the Lei Crime series by Toby Neal
JD Robb, hunger Games. I loooove series books
Inspector Gamache in Three Pines. Looking forward to the next book to come out soon.
Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series, hands down.
A few of the later ones aren’t edited as well, but yes, the whole catalog. It’s wonderful.
I love Terry Pratchett, some of his phrases are so hysterical, I laugh out loud and promptly reread two or three times. Not just funny but profound and insightful too.
Me, too. You’re reading along, and it’s just absurd, funny, but then he twists it and you’re gasping for air.
Mine too! Nothing else comes close.
Oh, I love Discworld .
No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency Miss Julia Martha’s Vineyard Mysteries Stephanie Plum
Stephanie Plum is LOL-funny, love that series! Do you like Phyrne Fisher, too? It’s a bit more cerebral.
@Josie, I’m not familiar with those, but I’ll check them out!
The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice!
*A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snickett *John Puller Series by David Baldacci
I have enjoyed the Sue Grafton series. She is almost to the end of the alphabet. One of my favorites of that series is T Is for Trespass, which talks about identity theft.
Ones not mentioned above: The Circle by Ted Dekker (there is nothing like this, I promise you!), The Frankenstein series by Dean Koontz (Love, love, LOVE!!!), Legends Of The Duskwalker by Jay Posey (brilliant sci-fi; I’m on the third and last book now), Blood Of Eden by Julie Kagawa, The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda, The Patrick Bowers Files by Steven James.
enjoyed the millenium series by stieg llarsson and also michael crichtons jurassic park series. amazingly gripping plots. 😀
Fully recommend the Xanth series
Steig Larson’s Girl With the Dragon Tatoo series and as a child the Litttle House series.

Miss Julia Series and the Number 1 Ladies Detective series.
Martha Long’s “Ma” books.
The Spoils of Time “Trilogy” 1) No Angel 2) Something Dangerous 3) Into Temptation by Penny Vincenzi
I have a dragons fixation, so Anne McCaffrey’s Pern books have long been a favorite. Robin Hobbs Rain Wilds and Fitz and the Fool books are also yummy.
I liked Temeraire. Good dragon books are hard to find, do you have recommendations?
Outlander! Loved every book.
And his fans want him to quit goofing off and keep writing!
FBI series by Catherine Coulter and Eve Duncan series by Iris Johansson.
I think we could be great friends. LOL
J.D. Robb In Death
The Skulduggery Pleasant books were amazing!! And the Moganville Vampires serious. Both of which I havent yet finished but am super excited to do so!
