In Death Series Reading Challenge {ongoing}

This is an invitational post to anyone who wishes to join the ongoing In Death Series Reading Challenge that was started in January of last year, but is an open enrollment challenge that can be joined at any time no matter where you are in the series.

The In Death series is a widely popular futuristic crime fiction series with romantic elements, written by author J.D. Robb.

Host: Christine at the happily ever after... (that's me!)

Challenge: Read at least one book per month from the In Death series by J.D. Robb until you are caught up to the latest release in the series.

There are currently 38 stories published in this series, including 31 full length novels and 7 short stories or novellas.

I am currently up to the 19th book and anticipate completing the challenge in late 2012 or early 2013. :P

You can write reviews or simply keep a running list of the books you read like I do HERE. At the end of the month, I post a discussion post in which participants share their thoughts on characters, plot points or trends in the series.

Anyone who is interested in joining the In Death Series Reading Challenge can visit the sign up post HERE. The sign up post details the challenge rules and contains a list of the series books in order.

Come join the fun!


  1. You have joined so many challenges. I envy you! I read over 250 books last year, so participating and completing challenges would be quite easy, but I'm afraid I can't do them. I fear all those challenges would make my reading too forced etc. It's just me :P But I'm glad to participate in my one and only challenge, your challenge - it's quite a challenge ;)

  2. Hi Maija! :)
    I think the reading challenges appeal to me because they're a creative way of manipulating my reading lists and also because they help me try new authors or genres. But honestly, I don't get stressed over not finishing them.

    I'm so glad you joined the In Death challenge. It's been so much fun getting to know you and of course, reading and discussing the series with you! :)

  3. May I just randomly comment as I did last year since I've read all the books so far?

  4. You're up to book 19 - WOW! I've slowed down a bit, but am currently reading book 30. 30! I can't believe there are so many books in the series!

  5. Of course, Brandy! I love when you chime in on the discussions. In fact, I insist that you do. :)

    orannia, I am on book 19, but actually don't feel very much like reading an ID book right now. LOL. I guess that's bound to happen with nearly 40 books in the series, right?

  6. I joined last year and did not read a single one! I will join again this year and maybe I'll get a few read. Well, I'll start once I find the box they are in and to be honest, finding it isn't my priority, but if I do, I will. K?
