I loved The Cazalets,
GoT, the Ruth Galloway series, bit of swedish crime stuff, teenagery witchy stuff, The century trilogy, the chronicles of st marys etc etc...

Anyway. I love finishing one and moving on to the next immediately.

Suggestions for a new lot please?

Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time is a favourite of mine. And should keep you busy for a while. I've recommended it to several people who say that they've enjoyed Game of Thrones.

You might like Mo Hayder and her Jack Caffrey series.

Try Jussi Adler-Olsen Department Q series. Brilliant scandi crime.

Philippa Gregory's Widacre trilogy. Brilliant.

Lucinda Riley's 'Seven sisters' is good and she's just released the second in the saga. She really captures you with her writing -she's only a recent find of mine and I can't get enough!

Susan Howatch, the Starbridge novels.

Haven't read it yet bit have just ordered the first of the Jane Smiley family saga (trilogy). I loved her earlier stuff so am hopeful.

The Poldark series, by Winston Graham. There are 11 or 12 books in the series.

OH has just read those Best and says they are brilliant.

I would add The Lewis Trilogy by Peter May. Quite possibly the best detective novels I have ever read.

Elena Ferrante: the neapolitan stories.

YYto the Lewis Trilogy Bunbaker. They were excellent.

I loved the Department Q series as well Anonymous. Jo Nesbo is another favourite.

The Jackson Brody series by Kate Atkinson.

Jack Mcafferty series by Mo Hayder ( her stand alone books are also excellent).

The Grant County series by Karin Slaughter.

Another vote for the Lewis trilogy. And the Shetland series by Anne Cleeves too. Both brilliant.

Lewis trilogy is very good, I'll add to the voices on that one.

Bunbaker Fri 20-Nov-15 15:10:30

I am so happy to "meet" others who have enjoyed Peter May's writing.

The Deverry books by Katharine Kerr. Something like 15 in the series. grin
