Monday Memories -- Alex Cross Series, by James Patterson


Welcome to my meme, Monday Memories, where I feature favorite books we've loved from the past. You can link to an old review, or write something new about a beloved book from your past. Really, what's important is not the book, but why it is memorable to you. So, have fun reminiscing, and leave a comment below, so we can all enjoy your memories.

I also wanted to let you know about another wonderful blog that you should check out. Ashley @ Books from Bleh to Basically Amazing does a weekly post called Memory Monday. She has been posting about her childhood memories of books. What's great about Ashley's site is that she is asking for guest posts for her Memory Monday event!  So hop on over there and check it out.

I believe the first Alex Cross novel I read was Kiss the Girls. My husband really liked the movie, and told me about it. I think I saw the movie first (this was about 15 years ago, so memories are fading) but then I read the book. I just loved this book, and I was instantly hooked on Alex Cross. I really didn't know of or care about anything else Patterson wrote for a long time. I didn't read the books in order, and it didn't really matter. I remember figuring out all of the ones I had missed and making sure I read them.

Many people think these books are simple and don't have much merit. That may be true, but I know that as soon as I pick one up, I"m not going to be able to put it down. I find them utterly compelling, and easy to read. Unfortunately, I fly through them, and keep wanting more.

I know that Kill Alex Cross just came out, and I don't have it yet, but it's certainly on my list! I also read the first Women's Murder Club book, and while I liked it, it didn't grab me and make me want to read any more. There just isn't another Alex Cross.

Share one of your cherished book memories!

  1. I really enjoyed the early books in this series, Along Came a Spider was my favourite, but I went off them after about #8. I do still reread them tho'.

    Some of my best book memories come from early James Rollins - like Ice Limit, Subterranean and Amazonia. Have you read any of them yet?
