I thought how about a specific place to share book series or stand alone titles, that you thought were such a good read you want to share with others, or ones you have re-read after time as it was that captivating it holds a special place in your heart.

I am a David Gemmel fan, I feel sad knowing he will never write again, but take joy in the books he had done, and I feel I can always go back and read them. One of my favourites series by Gemmel was the Drenai series.

What would you recommend?

    I used to love James Patterson , I can’t read anymore but loved detective novels, Patricia Cornwall etc.

    For anyone who likes fictional crime and the City of Bath, I would recommend the novelist Peter Lovesey.
