Newly Released Books

In my opinion, there is nothing better than opening a newly released James Patterson book on Christmas morning. I love the shiny new look, that memorable, new book smell, and the fact that it’s the perfect time of year to curl up with a hot cup of cocoa and just read.

    Hello Tracey,

    I am not all that familiar with Mr PAtterson’s work but going off this extensive list,

    I must admit it looks definitely worth considering as a collection.

    For the time being, what will be your Top 3 recommendations for a novice like myself

    to start up my holidays readings early ?

    Thank you

    • Tracy

      Hi Moi! I’m happy to hear that you’re interested in James Patterson. There’s no time like the holidays to enjoy a good book. I don’t know what genre you prefer however, I highly recommend starting with the Alex Cross Series, start with Along Came A Spider, you won’t be disappointed. If you want to start with a stand alone before diving into a series I recommend The Inn, or Murder House. If you are a true crime fan, maybe look into Filthy Rich or All American Murder: The rise and fall of Aaron Hernandez. Let me know if you get started on one of these and what you think. Thanks for visiting, Happy Holidays and Happy Reading!
