2018 Reading List
Patrick Bowers Series by Steven James
I flew through these books as fast as I could get my hands on them. They are fast paced, intense, and kept me wanting more. They are considered Christian Fiction but they can get rather dark as Patrick Bowers is an FBI agent that deals with serial killers. I'm anxiously awaiting the next book (Every Wicked Man) which is due in September.
The Jevin Banks Experience Series by Steven James
While I was waiting for more books from the Patrick Bowers series to show up for me I moved on to the Jevin Banks Experience. These were still entertaining but were not as face paced and hard to put down as the Patrick Bowers books. Still a great read and significantly less heavy, while still dealing with suspenseful and heavy topics.
Blur Trilogy by Steven James
My library didn't have these books so I was thrilled to find them on Kindle Unlimited this summer. After flying through the Patrick Bowers books and the Jevin Banks series I wanted more Steven James! These books are significantly shorter because they are a teen series but they still have a solid mystery and kept me engaged.
Men of Valor Series by Irene Hannon
I read some of Irene Hannon's other books last year (Private Justice and Code of Honor) so I grabbed the next series that the library had in full. Her books weave suspense and romance together in a way that isn't gag worthy because it's so cheesy. I can't handle the super swoony love stories but I'm okay if there are characters that fall for each other.
Guardians of Justice Series by Irene Hannon
Another great series from Irene Hannon. I love that I can pick up her books and get sucked in within a chapter or two. Sometimes I can figure out how the small details fit in to the larger story before all is revealed but often she leaves me guessing until the end!
Heroes of Quantico Series by Irene Hannon
Are you sensing a theme here? If I find an author I enjoy I tend to keep reading anything I can find by the person until I hit a dead end. I've finished the first two books in this series and I'm currently reading book three.
If I live by Terri Blackstock
This is the third and final book in the If I Run series. I randomly grabbed the first book off a shelf at the library two years ago and it threw me into the world of Terri Blackstock. I've read every one of her suspense books and they always teach me something new. Her characters are real with actual flaws and struggles. I highly recommend her!
The O'Malley Series by Dee Henderson
One of my favorite finds this year! I flew through this entire series in less than a month... but out of the eight books I read half of them in a week! I couldn't put them down and felt for the characters deeply. That's what I want in a book!
Danger in the Shadows
The Truth Seeker
