I have decided to join  the In Death-reading challenge hosted by Christine from The Happily Ever After. I am looking forward to finally read the books after NAKED IN DEATH. A little background for my reason to join:

A while back, more than a year ago to be exact, one of the ROOB-messageboard members was ranting and raving about J.D. Robb's IN DEATH books and she really thought I should try them out. The reason I held of reading them before that was because I am not a fan of Nora Roberts' writing......I know, a severe sin in the world of romance lovers, but I really tried and I had to  accept that for me Nora Roberts is that author that the majority of readers loves, but just not for me. And come on...we all have an author like that....
But back to the subject at hand, I decided to put my Nora Roberts fear aside and tried out NAKED IN DEATH and....lo and behold...I really liked it! I have a review of it on this blog but am not linking it here yet because I want to use it as my first review of the challenge. Yes, I know, that's cheating a bit...but hey with my lack of time I make use of any loophole I can find. So sue me...

The most important rules for this challenge:


1. Anyone can join at any time.

2. Read one 'In Death' book by J.D. Robb per month, starting in January 2010 until you're caught up in the series.

3. To join, make a post on your blog about the challenge where you will keep a running list of the books that you'll edit as you go along. (See my own entry post HERE as an example). Once you've made your entry post, come back to this post and enter the link to your entry post in Mr.Linky below.

4. If you don't have a blog and you'd like to join the challenge, you can come back here and leave a comment as you read the books, or at the monthly 'In Death' Challenge post that I'll make on or around the last day of each month.

5. Reviews are optional. I will make a post on or around the last day of each month with a Mr.Linky for you to link any reviews or commentary from your blog so that we can find each other's posts easily and engage in some dialogue about the books.

6. If you miss a month, don't stress over it. This is all for fun and camaraderie! To motivate everyone from stay on track, however, I plan on awarding prizes at regular intervals (maybe every four months) to a randomly selected participant who has stayed on schedule for that time period.

7. Feel free to grab the 'In Death' Reading Challenge button on my sidebar for your blog.

8. Have fun!

My holy Gawd...Pearl, is this In Death series already 36 books long 0-0 I have read book one, I believe Naked In Death for 3/4 and I loved it, but I already loved NR in her contemporary suspense. I think I will do this series as i'm in the mood for it.

Girl, you've got some fabulous challenges to participate in, enjoy them all!

You are in for such a tremendous treat with this series. I've read every single book at least twice and some three times. I adore the J.D. Robb series, the magnificent world she's created and a supporting cast of characters that are as colorful and involving as the main characters. I hope you really enjoy the challenge, I shall definitely check back in!

39, married to my real life romance hero, addicted to TV shows, reading romance novels and Twitter. I'm a chronic (e)book hoarder and my absolute favorite genres within romance fiction are contemporary romance and romantic suspense, but I don't shy away from historical, paranormal or erotic romance either. Even the occasional (urban) fantasy romance, futuristic and sci fi romance may make it to my Mount TBR. This is my corner of the world wide web where I let you know what books I'm hoarding, reading and reviewing.
