book club thursday- remember when
WELCOME BOOK LOVERS
Thanks for stopping by. My name is Cyndi and each week, myself and my two best book friends forever Ann and Karen jointly blog together on Book Club Thursday (BCT). To learn all about BCT please click here
If you're a regular reader, you are going to see some fresh changes to each of our BCT blogs for 2017. We are very excited and hope you will participate in our events.
This week we have:
Remember When is when each of us can blog about a specific book, theme/topic from the past...for example Remember When Fabio was on all the romance covers (okay so he wasn't on all of them 😍 )
My Remember When topic relates to the release of a certain book that came out on 4/4.
I'm talking about kick off book titles in some very long running and wildly popular series (for simplicity, I've included about the book and buy links under each title)
Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over ten years on the force, she's seen it all—and knows her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire—and a suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about—except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.
In this "fast-paced" (Publishers Weekly) page-turner, the daughter of a murdered high-powered lawyer seeks sanctuary in a quaint little town, only to learn she can't escape her past—or FBI Special Agent Dillon Savich.
Of the five series I've chosen to spotlight above (and believe me once I started picking series it was hard to stop - I left so many others out!), I am caught up on only two of them ( JR Ward- I'm currently reading The Chosen which was released...you guessed it 4/4 and the Kresley Cole - the newest just released on 2/28 with the next title on 4/25 ).
I'm almost caught up on the Kenyon titles- I'm about four behind? Can't say why I let myself get behind, I think I was I just was interested in other paranormal titles.
The JD Robb- of the 44 or so (full length titles), I've read about (barely) half. I think I was tired of the same ole same ole (does that make sense?)
The Catherine Coulter - I've read only a handful of the ( not sure how many 20 plus?) titles. No clue why I never continued.
So I'm wondering when, in your opinion has a series gotten too long?
Are there any out there that should END?
On the flip side, maybe there is a series that ended too soon and you wanted more?
I'd love to hear what you think!
