I picked a few of my current series and put them on my priority list for 2011. This was an effective strategy for me. I managed to catch up with the current release in several of my ongoing series.
Now it’s time to pick the ones I’m going to target for catching up in 2012.
I need to be strategic about this and pick not only series I truly want to catch up with but also some where that involves a reasonable number of unread books. I mean, I enjoy J.D Robb’s Eve Dallas series and Cynthia Harrod-Eagles Moreland Dynasty series but when the number of unreads are numbers like 17 and 33 respectively it’s just not going to happen.
So, I’ve picked these series to put on my priority list to try to catch up to the current release by the end of 2012.
Note: Images and links are to the first book in and not my next read in each of these series.
Mark Billingham's Inspector Tom Thorne series
This is one I just started in 2011, have thoroughly enjoyed. I read six of them since last November. I've only got three to read to catch up with what I can currently get my hands on.
Julie Hyzy's White House Chef series
I've only read the first one of these but I enjoyed it quite a bit. I want to balance out the mystery mix in 2012 with a few more cozies and catching up with the 3 currently unread and the new one coming next month will be a fun way to do that.
Michael Koryta's Lincoln Perry Series
I've read 3 of the 4 but got distracted by his standalone thrillers. I want to get back to this series and read that last one.
Chelsea Cain's Archie and Gretchen series
I've let one of my favorite local author's down this year. I have her most recent entry in this series on my shelf but as yet unread. I must remedy this before the next book comes out.
David Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter series
This is another series that has an alarmingly high unread count. I love this series. I love Andy, I love the humor, I love the supporting characters. Most of all I love Tara the best dog EVER! I have 3 to read to catch up with this series.
What about you? Do you have any particular series that are high on your priority list or reading planning for next year?
