    Thanks very much for this wonderful article about James Patterson’s new releases because I have enjoyed this amazing information from it’s beginning to it’s end and I didn’t want to stop because all the novels you have provided are interesting to read though I would like to first read the one called Revenge because I have found it more interesting for me to read. Thanks for this information and am eagerly waiting for other novel updates.

  • Tracy

    Hi Mugalu! Thank you for reading and commenting.I’m so happy that you found the article interesting and informative. Revenge does sound like an amazing stand alone. You will have to come back after you have read it and let me know your thoughts. I hope to see you back at Alex Cross Addict real soon! Happy Reading!

  • Travis

    It is absolutely amazing how Patterson is able to pump out so many different stories in such a short time! My son has been a fan of his middle school stories for a few years now, I am looking forward to the Mitchum stories, although that Revenge book looks pretty entertaining as well. I guess both will be on my bookshelves this year!

    • Tracy

      James Patterson truly is a prolific author, check out this video to see how he does it. The Middle School series is fantastic and fun, I’m glad your son is a fan! You have pretty good taste yourself, the Mitchum series is a good choice and I am excited about Revenge too! Thanks for visiting Travis, come back often. Happy Reading!

  • Douglas

    James Patterson is my absolute favorite author but I have only read the Alex Cross books and not even all of them yet.  My stepdad has gotten me into the books and they are fantastic.  I do have on question for you and that would be how the heck does he write so many books every year.  That is so crazy and yet they are full of such great content and such good stories as well.  I also didn’t know he wrote kids books how cool is that to be able to write such great books for all ages.  I am glad you have put this out here and that I found it so I can bookmark and find some more ideas of books to read.  Thank you very much.


    • Tracy

      Hey Douglas! It sounds like you had a good role model and I’m happy to hear how much you enjoy the Alex Cross series. I’m sure you will finish the series and hopefully find a few more James Patterson books that interest you. I love that you asked how he writes so many books every year. Here is a really great video that will answer that question for you. The fact that James Patterson writes children’s books seems to be a suprise to many. You will also hear about that in the aforementioned video. Thanks for visiting and bookmarking Alex Cross Addict. Let me know if I can help you with anything else. Have a wonderful day!

  • Bob Lynch

    Hi Tracy, I’m a little confused by the name of your website.  I can only assume Alex Cross is an author.  I’m sorry to say I don’t know who he/she is.  My first thought when I opened the page was that it would be about addiction of some sort.  Maybe I totally missed the point?  I like that you’re upfront about your affiliate business.  On the other hand, I’m not sure I understand the connection between Alex Cross and James Patterson.  Again, maybe I completely missed the point.  On the other hand, I loved the Jetsons video.  It brought back a lot of memories.  I wish you all the best.

    • Tracy

      Hi Bob. I’m sorry that you were confused by the website title. However, it does state in the title; Alex Cross Addict/Books by James Patterson.  Alex Cross is a book series written by James Patterson. James Patterson is a very famous Author. James Patterson fans are very familiar with the Alex Cross Series, probably more than any other book or series written by James Patterson. I’m addicted to the Alex Cross Series, hence the name. I am happy that you looked at the website and took the time to leave a comment. I hope that you give James Patterson’s books a try some day, they are really ‘addicting’ and easy to read. Also, I’m glad you liked the Jetson’s video, it was one of my favorites as a kid and I thought it would be a fun addition. Have a great day Bob!
