Are you a James Patterson fan?

Updated on May 31, 2016

Have you ever had an author that you just would be lost without? Books that you can't put down no matter how much you have to do? That's what James Patterson books are for me. The suspense in all his books from murder to mystery to the relationships of his characters. I don't know how he gets his book ideas but I do know that he is one of the people I would love to have a chance to meet one day. I've read a lot of his books, kept up with a lot of his life and can't wait to see what comes up next for him (and me to read).

I've actually read:

All 24 Alex Cross books (own them all, another one coming out soon!)
All 15 Women's Murder Club books (own them all)
All 9 Michael Bennett books (own them all)
4 NYPD Red
The 11 Private books
AND
28 Books that aren't part of any series (own most of these)

(can you imagine what my library of books looks like)

I want to read the Witch and Wizard series (5 books so far and a MOVIE coming out soon) next and maybe Maximum Ride (9 books)

I wouldn't mind trying out the Daniel X series but I'm not sure that will be a series I can get into.

He also has a book called "Middle School, the worst years of my life". I might have to check that one out too. It's supposed to be funny. I am not sure I can really picture James Patterson writing a "funny" book but if it's James Patterson it's got to be a great book right?

So, out of the list I have printed out that James Patterson has written, I have read 91 of them. WOOHOO! Over half his books down!

I didn't start reading James Patterson until I got married in 2004. I needed something to keep me busy while my husband was gone. 91 books in 7 years being a full time mom of 3 small children, not too bad I must say!

Have you ever read a James Patterson Novel? I just got done reading Now You See Her and man, it was just as good as the rest of them. I'm not sure I could have done the same thing as "Nina" did in that book, but hey, it's just a book and my life really is nothing like hers! It is a good book, not a must read, but a good book all the same.

What are your favorite James Patterson books? Need any advice on what some of his books are like? Feel free to ask and leave comments!

(oh and by the way, James Patterson is on FB too!)

      MelChi - I agree, the Alex Cross series is starting to get to a point of a bit too much. The Private books are really good. I also really like the women's murder club series. Just like the Alex Cross books but with women :) Thanks for stopping by and the comment!

      Oh wow, that's quite a collection of books you have! I really enjoy reading James Patterson's books, especially the Alex Cross series. His first few books were brilliant, I must admit though that the last few I've read in the Alex Cross series tended (for me) to be too similar to his other books. I might give them a try again though - he is a brilliant writer :)

      The Alex Cross series is AMAZING!!! I have every one of those books and so glad I do. I just got the two new Private books (Private #1 and Private Games) so hopefully those are as great as the rest. Good to see another James Patterson fan out there :) Thanks for stopping by and the comment!!!!

      I love James Patterson. I am in the middle of his women's murder mystery series currently reading The 9th Judgement. I've a few of his other books as well. Once I complete this series I want to read the Alex Cross series too. James Patterson has a way to keep me glued to the book and wanting more.
