Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Hard Time by Jodi Taylor

Time travel & the Time Police who try to control chaos along the time line

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. This is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. The books I choose aren’t released yet and usually won’t be published for at least two or three months. So I have a while to wait!

I love finding out about books set to publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog.

I’m excited to read . . .

I read the first book in The Time Police when it came out last year. It was so much fun. The time travel world Jodi Taylor has created is wonderful. And I like that cover!

This is a spin-off series of The Chronicles of St. Mary’s which is also one of my favorite series.

Tell Me Something Tuesday: Series I started this year I will continue reading in 2020

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings where a range of topics from books to blogging are discussed.

This week we talk about the series we started this year that we plan to continue in 2020.

New Series, New Authors (at least to me)

Sparks & Bainbridge series by Allison Montclair–I read the first book in this series–The Right Sort of Man–and really liked it. This is a historical mystery series taking place in Great Britain after WWII ended.

Jazz Ramsey series by Kylie Logan–The Scent of Murder–in this contemporary mystery series was published this year. I enjoyed that book though I had hoped there would be more about dogs since the main character trains dogs. I’ll read the next book in the series and hope to read more about dogs!

The Vardeshi Saga by Meg Pechenick–I’ve read both books last summer–Ascending and Bright Shards–published so far in this series and loved them. This is a science fiction adventure series about aliens making contact with Earth.

Oxford Dogwalkers Mystery series by Annie Dalton–A cozy mystery series. In the first book, The White Shepherd, a dog walker teams up with other dog walkers to discover who killed the dead woman found by her dog.

Crow Investigations series by Sarah Painter–I read The Night Raven in September. It’s an urban fantasy and is intriguing because it’s got a few different things about it. I liked the idea of magical families in London–the Crows, the Silvers, the Pearls and the Foxes–which have had a truce for quite a long time, but now that truce may be breaking down.

DCI Dani Bevan series by Katherine Pathak–Against a Dark Sky is the first book in a police procedural mystery series. I’ve read the first two books and there are 10 more to read! Yay!

New Series from Authors I’ve Read Before

DFZ series by Rachel Aaron–This is urban fantasy series that’s a spin-off from the Heartstriker series. It has different characters, but it’s set in the same world in the Detroit Free Zone (DFZ) and some of the dragons are peripheral characters. Minimum Wage Magic is the first book. Rachel Aaron writes such good characters! So far I’ve read two books in the series.

The Time Police series by Jodi Taylor–Doing Time is the first book in this spinoff series of the Chronicles of St. Mary’s series (and both series are excellent). They are science fiction time travel books.

Two Rivers series by Ann–The Long Call is the first book in a new series by Ann Cleeves which came out in September of this year. It’s a police procedural British mystery series. Ann Cleeves writes such good mysteries and her characters are great, too.

What new series did you start reading this year? Will you continue reading them in 2020?

Doing Time by Jodi Taylor

Series: The Time Police #1

Published by Headline

Publishing Date: October 17

Genre: Science Fiction, Time Travel

Synopsis: Introducing The Time Police, the brand-new series by international bestselling author, Jodi Taylor – an irresistible spinoff from the much-loved Chronicles of St Mary’s series. Perfect reading for fans of Doctor Who, Ben Aaronovitch and Jasper Fforde.

At some time in the future, the secret of time-travel became available to all. Chaos ensued as people sought to take advantage. Because there will always be nutters who want to change history…

And so the Time Police were formed. Internationally sanctioned thugs whose task it was to keep the timeline straight by any and all means possible. And they succeeded. The Time Wars are over. The Time Police won. But who will win the peace?

Doing Time follows three hapless new Time Police recruits – Jane, Luke and Matthew – as they try to navigate their first year on the beat. It’s all going to be fine. Obviously.

…………………………

A spinoff of Jodi Taylor’s St. Mary’s series? Yes! I’m very excited to start this new series. I love the St. Mary’s time travel series (even though I’m not caught up to the newest book)!
