Top 10 Tuesday — What to binge-read when others are binge-watching.

4 Sep

This week’s Top 10 Tuesday topic is binge-worthy TV shows/movies. I am so out of the loop when it comes to TV watching. While my friends binge-watched Downton Abbey, I read books. While my kids binge-watched The Office or Portlandia, I read books. While my husband watched Lonesome Dove and its many sequels, I read books. Hmm, I am noticing a trend. So as not to be left out this week, I again changed the topic to Book Series to Binge-Read while Other Binge-Watch. I have included series from a variety of genres — I hope you find some new books to keep you busy!

Check out other bloggers’ recommendations at That Artsy Reader Girl.


Top Book Series to Binge-Read


The Baxter Series by Kathy Herman (suspense and danger in small town America)


The Bowers Files by Steven James (high-octane suspense)


The Bright Empires by Stephen Lawhead (mind-bending time travel)


The Cape Refuge Series by Terri Blackstock (Southern suspense)


Hope Harbor by Irene Hannon (romance on the Oregon coast)


Lowlands of Scotland by Liz Curtis Higgs (the ultimate love triangle set in 1700s Scotland)


The Million Dollar Mysteries by Mindy Starns Clark (charitable mysterious doings)


The Price of Privilege by Jessica Dotta (mystery/intrigue in Victorian England)


What series would you binge-read?

    I would read Liz Curtis Higgs. That sounds scrumptious! I have read Kathy Herman’s and Terri Blackstock’s series as well as most of Irene Hannon’s and I absolutely adored Jessica Dotta’s. I wish she would write some more! I guess I need to read the guy’s series at some point.
    Thanks for this list.

      You must read the Scottish Lowlands series! My book club read all of them. It was tough waiting a year for each one to come out. So you’ll have it easy. 😉

    I read the Liz Curtis Higgs books (loved them) and currently reading the 2nd in the Cape Refuge series! Have a great week!

    I’m pretty sure I picked up the first book in Liz’s series YEARS ago, but I don’t think I ever read it. I also LOVED Mindy’s other series (Tulip-something, I think) from years ago too. So cute! Glad you enjoyed all of these binge-worthy series. 🙂

      I binge-read The Trouble with Tulip years ago too. Love mystery series.

    I haven’t read that series by James yet, but I really liked Blur! 🙂

    I like your spin on the topic. I’m terrible at keeping up with shows. I’d rather read books.

      Me too! And lately all I have watched is MASH and Big Bang Theory re-runs.
