I really enjoyed 61 Hours. Kinda ready for the Jack Reacher character to be retired though. Just doesn't seem like their is much left for him to do at this point.

The Enemy & The Affair are prequels. The Enemy I think is one of if not the best Reacher book to date anyways. Gives you a real feeling of what the guy is about and helps you understand why he eventually leaves the Army.

Killing Floor is the first Reacher book written and there is a major plot point in it that is kinda important for some of the later books (Without Fail in particular) but basically most of them are singular stories. Some reoccuring characters like Jodie in Tripwire/Running Scared and Francis Neagley making repeated appearances but its nothing too hard to keep track of.

Die Trying & Nothing to Lose are both kinda bad/boring compared to the others.

Persuader the 7th book, is pretty action packed and a good pick up for someone getting into the series or One Shot, the 9th and book the movie is based on is also a good place to start if you don't want to start at the beginning, but yeah The Enemy and Killing Floor are both two of the better books and the start.

Yeah One Shot is pretty good. Not my first pick as far as a recommendation but better than most of them.

I'm open to pretty much anything so long as it's well written and has a coherent plot.
Have you tried Jim Butcher's Dresden Files books? Urban fantasy detective stories that are light enough to read several in a row without burning out yet still pull you in.

For something older you may have not read, try Jack Chalker's Rings of the Master series for more old-school SF, or his G.O.D., Inc. books for some detective stories with a SF twist.

I think pretty much everything else worthwhile I've read in the last few months was either part of a huge long series that requires a major time investment or was YA, which I don't know if you have any interest in (although there is some crazy good YA out there these days, if you're willing to wade through a lot of crap to find it).

Ooh, also, Connie Willis' Blackout and All Clear - possibly the best time travel/historical books I read all last year. And I tend to read about 250 new books a year, so that's kind of hardcore. Highly recommended.

These I've heard of; seems I remember someone recommended the series but never bothered to lend me the book he promised. I don't see anything on my available library ebook list, and don't know if I'll like Butcher enough to buy, but I've got a bag full of books to trade back at a consignment bookstore, which means I'll have a good amount of credits, so if I see any of the titles there I'll pick one up.

I read some YA, not much, but it all depends on the author. My fantasy lit course at university was almost entirely YA (don't know if that says something about the professors opinions on fantasy or the quality of the YA writers) so I'm good with it so long as it's not aimed too young.

The Willis books did turn up as available and I just downloaded Blackout, so that one I'll read for certain. Thanks.

PM me if you want, I don't mind emailing you DRM-free copies of the Dresden books.

I'll have to skim my 2012 list and see what else on there was super worthwhile. Let me know how you like the Connie Willis.
