  38. I read suspense books all the time, so picking just one is hard. I love Dana Stabenow, Lisa Jackson, and Mariah Stewart. I tend to like female protagonists, with a little romance thrown in, too. The April Woo series is one of my favorites.

  65. MANDATORY ENTRY: I have been reading the Zion Covenant series by Bodie Thoene & loving it. So far, I've read the first 6 books this year and I'm looking for the rest and hoping they come into the 1/2 price bookstore soon! When there is 12 books in a series you need to get 'em cheap. I love the Thoene books because they are extremely well researched, bring up facts that you didn't know and yet it's definitely fiction based on true facts. I bought these 2/3 at a time and couldn't wait to get the next in the series!

    The other series I discovered this year is: The Defenders of Hope series. This is a story of a father's son who disappeared and the search conducted by the FBI. It's nail biting and keeps you wondering all the way through.

Comments make me feel all squishy happy inside, so drop a line if you see or read something interesting! PLEASE don't leave links to your blog or page unless the post you're replying to specifically asks you to leave a link!
Sorry that I had to re-enable word verification, but without it, there was far too much spam coming in - the only other option would have been to require only registered (Google, OpenID, etc.) comments, which might require you, the commenter, to go through even MORE steps just to comment!
