Oh Myron.....

Do you have any authors that you have read all their books and line up to buy their new ones the day they come out? Book's you’re willing to fork over hardcover prices for?

                                                                   Harlan Coben - Gone For Good
The first Harlan Coben book I ever read was Gone for Good, and it remains among one of my favorite books. It’s a quick read, a great suspenseful mystery with plot twists aplenty. (The perfect summer read) Of Coben’s books it is still my favorite, however I loved it so much that after finishing I immediately had to read all of his books. Which brings me to Myron Bolitar. Mr Coben writes a series about Myron Bolitar. He’s a former ball player turned agent who manages to get wrapped up in mystery after mystery, most related to his clients, athletes are apparently shady folks. The series also includes an eccentric cast of characters, one of my favorites being Win, whom I should hate on principle alone. He’s a womanizing, preppy spoiled cad (Think: Chuck Bass). But, duh, he has a soft spot too.  And Myron won my heart with his self deprecating humor and quick one liners. Anyway I bring all this up because yesterday, the latest Myron Bolitar book ‘Live Wire’ hit the shelves! Any other Harlan Coben fans out there? I can’t wait to read this one! Which authors can’t you wait to read?

And if you're interested, here's a list of the Myron Bolitar books in order.

Oh, and can we all pretend that I didn’t make a Gossip Girl reference earlier? Thanks.


  1. A few years back Andrea recommended Gone for Good to me and now it is one of my favorite books. I love Harlan Coben! I only have 3 Myron Bolitar books under my belt but I plan to eventually read them all!

  2. I love Harlan Coben, too. They're super easy reads and I agree with Andrea's assessment of Win. I shouldn't like him, but I DO. I really do. For me, Maeve Binchy is one of those authors I'll always buy in hardcover. She's got a new one out that I'm just itching to get.
