September Series & Sequels

75 Books Challenge for 2018

Around the 75ers group, September Series & Sequels has become an annual tradition.

Regardless of the genre--mysteries, romance, Westerns, or something else--this is the place to talk about what series books/sequels you're reading during September.

Welcome to all. I hope we all get lots of ideas!!

As for my own reading, I haven't picked out many series and sequels for September yet.

Of course, I'd probably focus on mysteries, as usual, but maybe toss in a Western, as well. I've been reading some Louis L'Amour lately, for instance.

I am reading book 5 in the Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard. The one I am reading is War Storm and it is a chunkster! I will probably finish it in September.

I guess I'll see what I have time to fit in with the other challenges in which I'm participating. I need to finish some new or revised presentations by October, but I think they are all doable. I just know it will cut into my reading time a bit.

>7 cyderry: I would love that, Cheli. I have to admit, though, that I'm reading the soon-to-be released second Allison Brook cozy, from Net Galley, and I think I need a break from cozies for awhile. They are all running together in my mind.

Mark's AAC had Louis L'Amour in August and I may read a few more in September. Westerns will certainly take my mind off of cozies for awhile.

With the release of Karl Ove Knausgaard's final book in his STRUGGLE series,
I plan to read the first one again.

Reviews of this latest book haven't been strong and the first of his Seasons series felt off.
An excerpt on Ice Cream from the Summer volume shows that he hasn't lost his good touch!

I have already read the first in the Voidwitch Sci/Fi series and so will try for the second to finish in September. I am also going to start Road to Santiago which is one of the titles in the National Geographic Society Directions series. These short books are written by well known and not-so-well-known authors about places that they live or visit frequently. Technically, they are a series that you have to read in order, as each is about a different place, but I have been trying to read the older ones first. I read Scilian Odyssey by Francine Prose earlier this summer and it wasn’t one of the best in this series, so I have high hopes for Road to Santiago by Kathryn Harrison.

I also will be finishing War Storm by Victoria Aveyad and Warcross by Marie Lu. Both of these are YA dystopian novels and they should be exiting reads.

Aug 26, 9:27pm Top

I really prefer to read in order but recently won two ER books that wouldn't be in series order for me. In one, I'd have only one book to read to get caught up, which is doable but in the other, I think it's more like 3 or 4 books to get caught up. Not sure what I was thinking.

Still haven't given much thought to which series books to read next month but it is a pleasant thing to think about.

Secret Undertaking by Mark de Castrique (Burryin' Barry series)
Dead Man Running by Steve Hamilton (Alex McKnight series)

I’m in! I’m also looking forward to the latest (and sadly, the last) Shetland Book. It’s one of my favorite series.

I’m also hoping to get to the next Bosch book, The Black Box, and I’ve got The Reckoning, the next John Madden book ready to go. And I’ve been curious about the Insp. Morse books and have Last Bus to Woodstock on tap and hope to start it soon. There are a slew of other possibilities as well.

I’ve already started Thirity Umrigar’s The Secrets Between Us which is billed as a sequel to The Space Between Us, which I loved. This one is pretty good, too!

I have some fitting books planned this month:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling, the last Harry Potter book, finishing my re-read.
Dune by Frank Herbert
Sleep Baby Sleep by David Hewson, 4th book in the Peter Vos series
A Season for the Dead by David Hewson, 1st Nic Costa book, re-read because book 11 The Savage Shore was just published

Not sure if non-fiction counts here, if so I can add Verhaal van een leven 1 by Konstantin Paustovsky, containing the first two books of his "Story of a Life" autobiography: Childhood and Schooldays and Slow Approach to Thunder

I'm in. Now reading the first of Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next series, The Eyre Affair. In my possession is the second, Lost in a Good Book. The first is entertaining me most excellently, so I'm sure I'll read the second one next (or Next).

I think a read of Kent Haruf's Benediction will fit good here. I've read Plainsong and Eventide. The final book of the trilogy awaits my attention.

Oooh. Thought of another. I have Curtain by Agatha Christie on my To-Be-Read-the-Year. Subtitled "Poirot's Last Case". I can see the various books Christie wrote showcasing Poirot as a series, thus such a read would be the final sequel, the last of the series, and all that.

I finished my first one for the month (actually one I didn't quite finish last month) - the audiobook of Miracle at Speedy Motors. I've read quite a few of these over the years, but I need to go back and fill in the ones, like this one, that I missed. As always, gentle uplifting stories and I love the narrator, Lisette Lecat.

We'll see how many of these I get to this month:
Lumberjanes vol 2 - Noelle Stevenson
Seeker's mask - P.C. Hodgell Uh oh this one is lost in the piles somewhere. Embarrassing!
Pigs in heaven
The Wild Inside - Christine Carbo - new to me mystery series set in Glacier National Park
Love Songs from a Shallow Grave - Colin Cotterill

I've read three so far:

* Cold Open is the recently published 7th book in Patricia McLinn's Caught Dead in Wyoming mystery series. I don't read nearly as many cozies these days, but I am particularly fond of this series. I really like books with a very strong sense of place, and McLinn succeeds in making some aspect of life in Wyoming critical to each mystery. If anyone is interested, the first book in the series, Sign Off, is available free for Kindle on Amazon.

* Four Funerals and Maybe a Wedding is the 14th installment in Rhys Bowen's Her Royal Spyness series set in the 1930s. Fun.

* Better Nate Than Ever by Tim Federle is a reread for me - and even though it's middle grades fiction I LOVE this book. Nate runs away from his Pennsylvania home (just for the day) to NYC and if you have ever auditioned for anything, you will crack up over Nate's audition for ET: The Musical. The sequel, Five, Six, Seven, Nate! is excellent as well and the third book, Nate Expectations (no touchstone yet) is out September 18th.

>37 weird_O: After you read Benediction, you might want to take a look at Haruf's final work, Our Souls at Night. It's not part of the trilogy, but it's set in the same town, and I recall seeing a nod or two to the trilogy that I enjoyed. It's a short book.

Acqua Alta by Donna Leon (eBook)

I fit another series book into the reading mix. The Merchant's House was the first book in the Wesley Peterson murder mystery series. It combines archeology and crime detection well and Peterson is a likable protagonist. I am sure that the next book in the series will be read in the near future.

I have three more to add - it always surprises me how much of my reading is from series....

Two from Diana Gabaldon: Voyager third book in the Outlander series and Lord John and the Private Matter, the first full novel in her spin off mystery series starring Lord John Grey. Both are rereads.

I also picked up (and rather unexpectedly really liked) Mick Herron's spy thriller Slow Horses, the first in his Slough House series.

>50 Familyhistorian: I agree - I thought Slow Horses was very good, even though it's not my usual fare. I've already requested Dead Lions from the library, although I may wait to read it until October, when it fits the AlphaKIT over in the Category Challenge.

I have PLENTY of books - series or otherwise - to read in September. :)

"The central volume in Ivan Doig's acclaimed Montana trilogy, Dancing at the Rascal Fair is an authentic saga of the American experience at the turn of this century and a passionate, portrayal of the immigrants who dared to try new lives in the imposing Rocky Mountains."

I am shocked to see that it has been 8 years since I read English Creek, the first volume in this trilogy. WTH? And I loved it too and to make matters worse, I featured Doig in the 2016 AAC, with full intentions to read this book. Best laid plans, right? The continuing struggles of a book nut!

All that said, I started it today on audio and I have to give Linda P. credit, for the nudge, since she set up S & S and planted the seed, in my fuzzy little mind.

It begins very well and reminds me a bit of Sackett's Land, at least in the early going. That would also fit into the S & S category.

I also finished reading book number 12 in the National Geographic Directions series. Road to Santiago by Kathryn Harrison was completed on August 31, but I am counting it here for this challenge.

This is another series that I am trying to complete. There are 22 books that were to be published in the series, but only 20 of them actually got published, so I am more than half done with this personal challenge. These are short books and so I hope to almost finish them by the end of the year. Of course, my library does not have the complete series, so I have to place an Inter-Library Loan request for them, and it takes some time for the volumes to get to me. That slows the reading process. On-the-other-hand, I don't get bored with them because they are spaced far enough apart.

I read book 8 in the Aurelio Zen series. Blood Rain by Michael Dibdin was set in Sicily and I think this one was one of the best in the series. I have been reading these books every time I travel through an airport and they are great traveling companions. I like this series because Zen is such a character. He started out as a really good detective and as he got caught in the wheels of justice he just got ground down. He is trying to not get involved anymore and somehow these cases just keep finding him. The plot for this novel worked really well. I am sorry that there won't be anymore Zen books as they are very good reads.

I loved that Yoon Ha Lee series. REvenant Gun was a great way to close out the series. I admit that I had a hard time with the first book, and only the exciting battle scenes kept me reading. The universe just seemed so weird and hard to figure out. However, by the time I got to this third one it was going great guns and I just want to know what happened to Jao/Karis. I hope the author keeps writing about this world in one way or another.
