10 on Tuesday-Book Series

I've always been an avid reader-as a kid it was not unusual for me to walk home from the library while reading a book at the same time.  Thankfully, I never veered off into traffic!  Here's my list in no particular order, because if you had to ask me my favorite book/series of all time, I'd be hard pressed to give you just one. 

10.  Outlander series-I began reading this series since it first came out and I'm on the most recent release-mere pages from the end-I have a feeling this is not the last book!
 9.  44 Scotland Street and The Sunday Philosophy Club by Alexander McCall Smith-so love him and my niece and I went to an author signing several years ago-he is a hoot!  I just saw on his website where he'll be in Atlanta THIS Friday-don't think I can work out the logistics to make it to this event on short notice :-(
 8.  Agatha Christie Mysteries-whether it's Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple-I could read these books over and over again.
 7.  The Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear
 6.  PD James and her detective Adam Dalgleish-what is it about the Brits and their mysteries?!
 5.  Elizabeth George and her Inspector Lynley series-there is only one of these books that I did not like, but over all-love-love these books.
  4.  Carol O'Connell's Mallory series-my boss got me hooked on these books-we anxiously await the release of her books to see what Mallory has gotten into-set in NYC I can't get enough of the characters in these books.
 3. Edward Rutherford-even though he doesn't write series-his books follow the same pattern.  Love his books Sarum, New York, and London.  Historical fiction is another genre I can really get into.
 2. Miss Julia by Ann B. Ross-these are just fun-quick reads.  Miss Julia is always getting into trouble!
 1. The Lincoln Ryme series by Jeffery Deaver-great if you are into suspense thrillers and NYC-which I am.
I don't know what I want to do more in my spare time read or knit-I need to get some audible books so I can do both!


  1. Great list! I highly recommend audiobooks. I started listening when I also didn't want to decide between reading or knitting. Reading (listening) and knitting are perfect together!

  2. You're convincing me to finally get an audible account! Great list.

  3. Thanks, adding Outlander to my library order.

  4. totally with you on 10-6...and hate that we're missing Alexander McCall Smith on Friday!!

  5. Oh, I forgot Elizabeth George! Yes, wonderful books.
