Mysteries, thrillls and chills . . . one story at a time.
I am putting together my summer reading list and am having a hard time keeping the list at a reasonable number. There are some awesome recent releases that I am dying to get my hands on. I’ve also decided to renew one or two classics; you know, the ones that never get old no matter how often you read them.
I’ve pared my list down to 10. If I finish these before school starts back, then I’ll add more. Feel free to make suggestions. As you’ll see by this list, I have varied reading tastes.
I’m going to start with a classic. Ian Fleming’s Quantum of Solace. For the past couple months, I’ve been re-reading the James Bond series. I forget how much fun they are. And how very different they are from the movies.
In my humble opinion, only Sean Connery in Dr No and Daniel Craig in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace came closest to the way James Bond was initially conceived by Ian Fleming.
I read Steig Larsson’s first book about a year or so ago. It was amazing! I was kind of sad that we lost such an amazing talent.
I’ve started on The Girl who Played with Fire. It’s just as good as the first one.
Then who would have thought that there was a third one! I can’t wait to read The Girl Who Kicked Over The Hornet’s Nest.
I have a friend who swears that I’m going to love Harlan Coben as much if not better than I love Lee Child.Well, we’ll see. I’ll let you know once I finish Gone for Good.
I’m a long time fan of Nora Roberts. She makes my list every year.
What would the summer be without at least one vampire or werewolf? Sherilyn Kenyon is among the best. I’ve heard good things about Dance with the Devil.
Kyra Davis is new to me. But who could resist the title: Sex, Murder and a Double Latte?
James Patterson really needs no introduction and I’m trying to forgive him for paying other people to write his stuff, but Alex Cross and I are old friends. So . . . I, Alex Cross had to added to the list.
Anita Diamont’s The Red Tent came highly recommended, so I’m really looking forward to this one also.
And Joseph Finder rounds out my list with Killer Instinct.
Okay, so here’s my list. Is anyone else making a reading list for the summer? If so, please share.
