Jennifer (jld451) | 34 comments One of my fave authors is Erik Larson, who recommended book 4 of the Belfast Novels "The Final Silence" by Stuart Neville.... So do I have to read the first 3 in order to check this off list? Or can I start with book 1?

Regine O I totally get your question!

If it were me I'd make sure I'd really want to spend so much time on one category. If it's something you're into go for it - in my opinion you'd only count the fourth one since he recommended that one.
Maybe the first three books could be your Wild Card picks?

I'm currently reading the First Law series because the author and I were born in the same year and I knew before I started that I'd have to commit a lot of time to that category (but it's totally worth it ;-)

Jennifer (jld451) | 34 comments Hmmm... 3 wildcards left....going to start with the first and see how it goes. With luck, one could be set by the sea, another could have a cover that interests me and perhaps I could get a friendly librarian to recommend one. LOL. Thanks for taking the time to respond. I really enjoyed the First Law series.

I chose Erik Larson for my favourite author, and found an article in which he said The Maltese Falcon was his favourite book. I read that, didn't love it, but it's relatively short!

Thanks Nancy! So far I am enjoying the Belfast Novels, so I will figure out some way to either count them or forgo counting all of them.
