For this upcoming year I want to read as many of the Jack Reacher and DCI Banks series as I can. A lofty goal and one that would certainly fit in with the British Reading Challenge.
One of my favorite authors, Peter Robinson, has written 22 books in the DCI Banks series. So far I have read half of the books so I’d need to get another 11 read to finish the published series. Before 2015 is out I am planning to read at least one more of his novels.
Doug has read all of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series and has enjoyed them. What I am hearing from so many people who like thrillers is, “If you haven’t read Reacher why are you reading anything else?”
There are currently 20 books in that series.
That puts me at a goal of 31 books for 2016. I think I can do it. Additionally, there are certainly other authors I will read if they publish a new novel. Tana French, Kate Morton, Diana Gabaldon and Edward Rutherfurd are always on my radar.
I am not limiting myself to only those authors but I would like to give it a shot at reading as much of their work as I can next year. We’ll see how it works out time wise. Anyone else participating in reading challenges? I am open to suggestions if you’d like to share. If any of my bookworm friends have their reading lists ready I would love to hear about them!
Happy reading, my friends.
