Series on Saturday: Chicago @longshotauthor @SaraParetsky @chloeneill @juljames @KittyMeader @KarenRoseBooks #Giveaway

Posted September 12, 2020 by Anne - Books of My Heart in Giveaway, Series on Saturday / 16 Comments

This is a new feature I developed where each month we will look at our favorite – the best – series in a genre or topic.

The topic here, by my definition,  is a series in a Chicago setting.    These are the ones which came to mind.  I enjoyed some more than others.   The team had to help me remember some of these. I like that there is some diversity in genre.

Since I haven’t read everything, it’s a subset of the possibilities.  I’m sure I am forgetting some great authors. There are also plenty of authors I have yet to read. Please share your favorites with me in the comments, also.

My favorite Chicago series are (in no particular order):



Harry Dresden                                             VI Warshawski                                      FBI/US Attorney
by Jim Butcher                                                   by Sara Paretsky                                 by Julie James


Chicagoland Vampires                           Chicago Romantic Suspense                Hot in Chicago
by Chloe Neill                                                    by Karen Rose                                       by Kate Meader

    I’ve read books in every series listed, but I’ve read all the Dresden and Chloe Neill’s Chicagoland Vampire books. I think Sara Paretsky actually uses Chicago and suburbs the most and to the best advantage in her series (I have lived in the suburbs of Chicago for 40+ years). The Dresden Files wins for the huge world he’s created with many, many interesting characters.

  2. The Chicagoland Vamps has always been on my list to try and I still need to start the Dresden Files. I remembered after we put together the list that I had two historical series about the Chicago Worlds Fair. One was by Deanne Gist and there was another that was a mystery series, too. Oh well. 🙂

    • It is always a tough choice for this and I tend to choose ones I have read. I’ve read all of these series, as in all the books, except Kate Meader and that one is newer in starting. I like a diverse selection and this probably could be improved by some historical mysteries. Thanks for sharing. It’s like with the cowboy ones, even you have more than 15 selections and we only do 6. But hey, it’s about the sharing and discussion.

    I love the Chicagoland Vampires series. I enjoy all the characters, especially Merit with her transformation from English grad student to kick-a** vampire.

    Butcher’s Dresden Files is one of the full series I have on my keeper shelf. I love the humor in it and the unusual characters.

    The Chicagoland Vampires series is one of my favorites! I’m probably the minority here but I’ve never read the Dresden Files. I know, I know I really need to rectify that, but I am more of a romance kind of girl than an urban fantasy one so I keep putting it off. I have several of them on my kindle…one day!
