List of the Day: Favorite Series
I can't resist a list. So when I saw this "Top 10" event on Random Ramblings, I was sucked in.
I enjoy a good series, usually a mystery, sometimes a literary series. I'm not a fan of sci-fi or fantasy, so several more popular series will never make my list. And I limited this to adult books, so my all-time favorite Trixie Belden series didn't make the cut, no matter how many times I read it as a child.
Here is my list of favorite "series" in alphabetical order by author's name.
Kate Atkinson's Jackson Brodie mysteries
James Lee Burke's Dave Robechiex cop mysteries (reviews here and here)
Lee Child's Jack Reacher mysteries
Lawrence Durrell's Alexandria Quartet
John Lescroarte's Dismas Hardy lawyer mysteries (discussed here)
David Lodge's academia trilogy (review here)
Anthony Powell's Dance to the Music of Time (discussed here)
Philip Roth's Nate Zuckerman books
Julia Spencer-Fleming's Clare Furguson priest mysteries (reviews here and here)
John Updike's Rabbit books
