In total so far I have read 111 books up until the end of September and 47 have been newbies.
There were 3 books that blew me away and I will be interested in reading more in the future from Gregory Widen, J. Sydney Jones and Peter Leonard.
Joseph Hansen's series with his gay insurance investigator, Dave Brandstetter will be revisited at some point in the future, when I finish a couple of the series that I started earlier this year and abandoned a few months ago.
David Mark's 2nd book awaits me and the 1st is recommended.
Kjeldsen and Helms were debut authors that I would be interested in following in the future.
Nothing really disappointed, but some were obviously better than others.
