Have you ever idly picked up a book, perhaps one that has been often recommended, but you never quite got around to reading it, then, one day, bam! You pick up the first in the series and that's you, nerd sniped, forsaking all other books for the sake of devouring the series? That's what's happened to me with Ben Aaronovitch's PC Peter Grant series. The books are essentially crime, with a bit of the supernatural thrown in, (or essentially supernatural but with a bit of crime thrown in ;) )but the realism, particularly with regard to police procedure and what is it like to be a PC through the stages is superb. I've devoured the first two and a half in the series and would happily forsake all other chores just to read until the end - and thankfully there's a new one out in November, huzzah!

Which book series has nerd sniped you?

I shall request you a copy - I recommended the first book to someone else and they are away with the Bo'ness copy. I only have one chapter left of book three, then on to number four!!

yes, I was curious about the Dr Who stuff. Worth a read?

Nicola Nicholson | 74 comments I did like the "Remmembrance of the Daleks", same kind of tone as the Peter Grant books.

Anne Peacock | 16 comments Am about to start on the Aaronovitch series after reading your comments. I love getting hooked on a series! I am currently reading 10th Anniversary by James Paterson and Maxine Paetro. I had never heard of the Women's Murder Club series and now intend to start at the beginning with 1st to Die.

It's a quirky sort of a series :)
And, yes, Patterson sure knows how to grab folks and keep them hooked
