Series Sunday

Series Sunday is a new bookish meme hosted by yours truly, Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along. 

  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Post a review/recommendation on your blog, FB, Twitter, Goodreads, or Shelfari pages.
  • Share your review/recommendation by posting the link in the comments section below.
  • Include the title, author, and name of the series so that other Series Sunday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists.
My Series Sunday pick is Tick Tock, the 4th book in the Detective Michael Bennett series by James Patterson. Bennett is NYC's #1 detective and father of ten adopted children. The book opens with the family's seaside vacation interrupted by a bomb scare at the New York Public Library. Even with the copycat murders of Mad Bomber, Son of Sam, and Werewolf of Wisteria, it wasn't terrifying. It wasn't the thriller that Patterson proclaims in his video trailer. In fact, I found it boring and forced myself to finish reading. The most enjoyable part was when Mike's relationship with nanny, Mary Catherine, took a turn. I'd rather Patterson stopped teaming up with less experienced authors to produce mass literature and focus on writing the gripping, suspenseful tales I used to love.
