Jack Reacher is to blame.

Regular followers of my blog will have noticed that I haven’t posted any historical fiction for quite some time.  I think the last one was Miles off Course in early October. The reason for the lack of historical fiction is I have discovered Lee Child.  Yes, I realise he has been around for a while but I have only now started to read him.  I happened upon him as I read a post from Book Riot.  They were discussing heroes in movies that lived up to the hero in the book.  I had never heard of Jack Reacher and I liked the sound of the story.

So…..The first book I borrowed was the introduction to Jack Reacher,  Killing Floor.

This gives a list of the books in Chronological order.  I have raced through the first half dozen of these and am currently reading Nothing to Lose which is #12. This one is out of order as it was the only one available at the library at this time. Obviously I am hooked on the Jack Reacher series.

I have also been reading Lynda La Plante and have recently finished Bloodline and Blind Fury, both of which were terrific reads.

As you can see there has been no time for historical fiction so I will need to remedy that in the near future as we are rapidly approaching the end of the year. I had planned to reach 50 but so far have read 28.  I don’t think I will reach fifty by the end of the year.

    Well, since our reading taste is extremely close, I gotta go look for Lee Child! I’ve never read him either, but you know I can always use a new author!
