In Death Series Reading Challenge: April 2011

Interested in joining the Challenge? Anyone is welcome to join in at any time of the year at wherever in the series you currently are. See the sign up post HERE
and join the fun!

I just starting reading my In Death book for April today, so it looks like I'm going to miss this month by a couple of days. How did you do?

Link up any In Death posts you made this month here. If you made a post on your blog whether it be a review or commentary, please grab the link to your post and enter in the Mr. Linky below along with your name so we can find each other's latest In Death posts easily.

If you're just keeping a running list of the books as you read them, grab the link to your list post and enter in the Mr. Linky so we can recognize your success this month.

If you're reading or rereading without documenting it on your blog, let me know in the comments which book(s) you read in this month. This will also help me keep track of who's eligible for the challenge giveaway this month!

REMINDER: In order to be eligible for the challenge giveaway in April 2011, you must have read four In Death books between January 1, 2011 and April 30, 2011 and have documented that you have either on your own blog, on goodreads [please leave a link to your profile if we're not already friends there] or you can let us know what you read here in the comments of the monthly In Death Reading Challenge posts. See below for giveaway details!

I'm short on ideas for a discussion topic this month. I'm afraid to bring up anything that may be spoiler-ish in nature to any readers who are still in the early stages of the series. Here's a fun question:

Do you think the cat Galahad favors Eve or Roarke? 

I think Galahad favors Eve--he knows when she needs comforting and knows she's a sucker for handing over food from her plate!

As promised, I am going to do a little giveaway for the participants in this challenge. One randomly selected winner will receive their choice of a US $5 gift card to Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Amazon, B&N or the purchase of a US $5 book from The Book Depository. To qualify for the giveaway, you must do or have done the following:

1. Be signed up for the In Death Reading Challenge in this post HERE either with Mr.Linky or in the comments if you do not have your own blog.
2. Have read FOUR In Death novels between January 1, 2011 and April 30, 2011.
3. Have documented the In Death novels you have read for the challenge by:

Maintaining a running list somewhere on your blog
Posting reviews or commentary on your blog
Having notified me which book(s) you read in comments on any of the In Death Challenge posts
Any combination of the above.

Pretty simple. Read four In Death books between January and April 2011, leave me proof, and voila! You're in the drawing.

I'll select a winner at the end of next week! Good luck.


  1. I haven't read an In Death book for a while - I need to get back in control of my TBR list :)

    And I think Galahad prefers...brain drain...the guy who lives with Eve & Roarke. But if I had to pick...Roarke I think :)

  2. I was also thinking of Summerset :)

    After failing last month's challenge, I managed to read two ID novels this month. I finally finished Creation in Death (#25). I liked it the more I read it. 4 stars. It brought back my ID fever and I decided to grab the next book. I liked Strangers in Death (#26) a bit more. Not that much going on between Eve and Roarke, but the murder mystery was interesting. 4+ stars.

  3. Definitely Summerset is Galahad's favourite. But only in secret.

    I have not read an In Death book in months. I really should get back to it. They are such fun books.

  4. I think there were many instances described in the series between Eve and Galahad, mostly were funny and cute and sometimes intimate, which made me think that Galahad usually favors Eve. I don’t think the cat favors Summerset at all, especially in Portrait in Death.

    These past few weeks were amazing, I've read 4 ID books and so far Purity and Portrait became my favorite, both were entertaining and emotional.

  5. LOL, I say Summerset, because Summerset is there all day :) He only goes to Eve and Roarke when they're home...

  6. So sad :( I didn't read one this month. I blame Holly, since Promises In Death wasn't on her bookshelves when I borrowed a bunch of them. And now I keep forgetting to either download it or borrow from the library.


  7. Oh how interesting that we are a bit divided on speculating Galahad's loyalties. I like that.

    orannia said, "...brain drain...the guy who lives with Eve & Roarke."

    LOLOL! omg I laughed so hard at that. I don't know why I find it so funny that you forgot Summerset's name. tee hee. ^_^

    Maija, you are cruising through this series!! So glad you've enjoyed the books! :)

    Sarah, I know it's hard to pick up one of these books after being away for a while and there are SO MANY books to read to catch up, too. But they are good fun.

    Natalie, WOW! 4 ID books in a month! I enjoyed both of those too.

    nath, I don't know if I agree with your logic. I am home all day and I am definitely NOT the favorite of any of our cats!! LOL

    Lori, we can blame Holly. I'm cool with that. ;)
    You'll get to Promises soon, I'm sure.
