Camille Here are some suggestions:

China Lake combo 10.3
Last Night in Twisted River jumbo pts
Mystic River combo 10.3
In the Lake of the Woods combo 10.3
One True Thing combos 10.4 & 20.5
Brideshead Revisited combo 20.8

I'm sure there are more combo pts out there, this was just a quick looksie--Camille

Jenifer (jensamaha) | 261 comments If I get to feeling ambitious, I might read The Count of Monte Cristo from the Victorians! list. It is combo with 10.4 and has some very nice style points as well. :)


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12338 comments I was already hoping to include the first of Trollope's Palliser series:

20.8 Can You Forgive Her? and
20.3Phineas Finn

which will combo with 10.2 and oldies/jumbo.

If you like adventure stories, it reads surprisingly fast! If you can, get the Robin Buss translation (probably Penguin?)

Liz M I am not with my spreadsheet, but Brideshead Revisited has quite a few combo points -- I believe it is a family saga & was published during Cy Young's lifetime...?

I have that one planned and I think those are the right combos. I've wanted to read that one for quite a while.

Rebekah (bekalynn) | 4351 comments The Stephen King list has some books from the Jackson Brodie Quartet by Kate Atkinson

Is this a concluded series, or will there be more? Just having 4 books in the series does not make it qualify for the tetralogy task.
