Book Series in Order

If you are like me and love to read series in order, this is the page for you.  Here, you'll find series I've reviewed in order with links to my review.  No link to the review?  I haven't gotten to the book yet, but I hope to do so soon.  This page will also act as the anchor page for my links from the reviews of books in these series.

How does a series get on the page?  It must have at least four books with the promise of more.  Why four?  It's just something I decided on a while ago.

The series on this page are listed in alphabetical order.  The genres are all mixed together as a result.

  1. Wish you would do the Alex Cross series by James Patterson.

  2. Since you do a Jane Austen series, you should do the Jane Austen mystery series by Stephanie Barron. The first half dozen or so were on audio and is discontinued, but I have them if you want to listen

  3. Wow, you have reviewed/read a LOT of books. Wish you would do books by MARY STEWART She is no longer with us, but her mysteries are so well written, take place all over the world, are full of adventure and suspense, and have a touch of romance. I've just finished "The Gabriel Hounds" set in Lebanon. My all time favorite book is her "This Rough Magic" set in Greece. (no magic, the title is from a Shakespeare play).
