Seven Series I Want to Start
The Passing Bells by Phillip Rock (Grenville Family Saga)Am I living under a rock? This is exactly my kind of series, yet I just heard about it a couple of weeks ago (thanks to Audra and Amy). It will be perfect to read while waiting for season four of Downton Abbey.
The Patrick Melrose Novels by Edward St. AubynFrom Never Mind to Mother's Milk, these novels have been on my wish list for some time. Bellezza and Marie reviewed them recently, and Picador has a gorgeous omnibus edition.
Tales of the City by Armistead MaupinI've wanted to read Maupin's novels for years. Matt loves them, and that's a pretty good indicator that I will, too.
A Dance to the Music of Time by Anthony PowellThis would be a huge undertaking, but it sounds like it's right up my alley. I'd also love to cross it off my Classics Club list.
Miss Buncle's Book by D.E. StevensonAlthough I have the edition pictured above, I never met a Persephone I didn't love. This would be followed quickly by Miss Buncle Married.
44 Scotland Street by Alexander McCall SmithI enjoyed The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency, and couldn't resist picking this up at a library book sale last summer.
Baltimore Blues by Laura LippmanI've enjoyed a couple of Lippman's stand alone novels, and one from the Tess Monaghan series (I hate reading out of order!) Now I need to start from the beginning.
Three Series I Need to Finish
The Century Trilogy by Ken FollettFall of Giants was a perfect vacation read earlier this year. Now I can't wait to read Winter of the World. Thankfully, the third book isn't out yet.
The Dublin Murder Squad Series by Tana FrenchI'm one of Tana French's newest fans. I loved In the Woods and plan to start The Likeness soon.
Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline WinspearIt's been a couple of years since I listened to Maisie Dobbs. It's time to continue with Birds of a Feather.
