I‘ve always wanted to see the In Death series made into a show, it‘s been optioned several times but never happened. However, every Nora Roberts book adaptation has been trash, so I would be hesitant too.
Eve Dallas kicks butt and takes names! 4.5⭐

Starting this book today, first one out of 56(??!!) series!! 😮 I am mostly reading it for the sex!
1. Usually yes, I typically at least have a suspicion.
2. The series I have most committed to. I have read 51 of the 52 published!
3. I love Urban Fantasy-Paranormal anti-heroes, enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, and strong female protagonists.
4. I am grateful to start a new school year that will be slightly more normal. #litsyteacher
I dislike Nora Roberts romance books, but I figured this would be different, because there's crime. So I thought I'll probably like this one. Well, big fat mistake. I was annoyed and bored at the same time. First I wanted to push through, but why would I want to do that? So I quit at about page 70. This is just not for me. I'm just sad I don't get to read about all the murder.
@TheAromaofBooks : this is my #Bookspin for November.
TBR since 2019.
Day 10 of #20series20days
Seems like the In Death Series will go on forever, lol. There are 40+ books. I‘ve read ~20. A gritty police procedural set in futuristic New York City. While some complain the books are repetitive, I don‘t see it. I‘ve enjoyed each book I‘ve read. Interesting murder cases to be solved and a cast of characters with great story arcs. I could do without the steamy sex scenes, but it does not diminish my love for the books.
Day 1 for me in my #Top20Series is the In Death series by JD Robb.
A futuristic police procedural set in NYC. With 50 full books strong, this series and the character development keeps going strong. I love the main and secondary characters. One thing I found out is I do NOT care for the audios as I don't like how the reader voices them. But the books are amazing!

In Death by J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) Book 1 tagged
A fun police procedural set in NYC in the late 2050s starring the kick-ass Lt. Eve Dallas.
The series currently has 50 books & 10 novellas + 2 more books are available for pre-order to be released in the fall & next spring.
I don‘t understand how this book has so many good ratings. There is barely any character development and without that, not much carries any weight. The love interest, Roarke, has zero character arc. The main character, Eve barely does. So when they got together I wasn‘t really invested in them. Plus- trigger warnings- child death, rape, and pedophilia. Pass.
Look, maybe I'm behind on this but this was fantastic.
It was dark (for me) and gritty but it kept me reading. I hated putting this down for any reason. I am definitely moving forward in this series.
I would say avoid this if you're sensitive at all to any kind of triggers of the sexual variety though.

#letstravelaugust @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620 I love this series that takes place in futuristic #NewYork, in 2059. The setting is always a big part of the story. Credit for these great drawings of Eve Dallas goes to the artists.
#quotsyjune19 @TK-421 “...without warning, he turned his head, looked five pews back across the aisle and directly into Eve‘s eyes. It was surprise that had her fighting not to jolt at that sudden and unexpected punch of power. It was will that kept her from blinking or shifting her #gaze. For one humming minute they stared at each other.” Roarke and Eve‘s first moment together.
I have read so many books in this series, out of order. Everytime I try to read them all in order, between finances and library lack I never get through them. Moved to Henderson, NV and it looks like between Henderson Library, and Las Vegas Clark County Library, I may FINALLY be able to read this entire series in order. Starting from this first book - and I must say, I think I had forgotten how much I enjoyed them.
Books # 45-48 that I‘ve read in 2019! 📚
45. “Naked in Death” (In Death # 1) by J. D. Robb ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨/5
46. “Opposite of Always” by Justin A. Reynolds ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
47. “A Princess in Theory” (Reluctant Royals # 1) by Alyssa Cole ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
48. “The Fever King” (Feverwake # 1) by Victoria Lee ⭐️⭐️⭐️✨/5
I recently acquired all of the books in the In Death series for an excellent price. I didn‘t know what to expect, but after a slow start, I finally got sucked into book one and really enjoyed it. There are some predictable plot points that I figured out early on, and it is a bit dated, but overall I‘m excited to keep reading the series! 4⭐️
I went on a business trip and promptly got sick. Thank goodness I had Naked In Death queued up on audio to distract me from how bad I felt. It‘s the first in a romantic suspense series set in 2058 in NYC. Eve Dallas, the MC, is a detective assigned to investigate a series of heinous murders on prostitutes (a legal profession in the US in 2058). I will definitely be continuing the series. #femaledetective #booked19
For anyone wanting to start the In Death Series by J D Robb, the first book is currently available for 99p in the U.K. and $1.26 in the US. Although no small undertaking as the 48th and 49th book are due to be published in 2019.
Anybody read all of these?
Not really sure how I managed to miss this series that began 23 years ago, but glad It finally found its way to me... now how do I ever get through all 49 and counting installments.
Decided on a reread of the start of the series. I adore this mystery series that takes place in a futuristic NYC, and the earlier books are, for the most part, my favorites!
I saw this thing of Facebook that said “Who is your favorite literary couple?” Sooooo many people said “Eve and Roarke.” So I‘m like, who the heck are they?? And so, here I am. Starting the first book in a million book series, I‘m not even mad. I think it‘s just what I‘ve been needing.
Another series recommended by my sister. Eve Dallas, a tough detective investigates 3 brutal murders of prostitutes in the year 2058. Published in 1995, I found some of the "futuristic" elements outdated. Also, some major trigger warnings, which I wish I would have know about beforehand. I probably will not read anymore of this series, but it was a well written thriller.
One of my favorite murder mystery series is the In Death series by J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts). She said in a 2011 interview with The Guardian that Shakespeare‘s Much Ado About Nothing is one of her favorites because “it‘s a brilliant romantic comedy.”
I also love this photo of her b/c it‘s so Eve Dallas.
Sometimes I make good decisions when I can‘t sleep - mostly not but this decision to go back and reread the In Death series was aces. This one introduces Eve, Roarke and the near future setting in a quick, gritty detective novel with a nice side of romance. What‘s not to love? On to book 2! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
So, last night when I couldn‘t sleep, I decided I wanted to reread the entire In Death series from the beginning in order. At 47 books, I may have bitten off more than I can chew? Let‘s see how far I get...
#manicmonday @JoScho 1. Eve and Roarke - In Death series
2. Yuki and Brady - Women‘s murder club series
3. Leslie and Ben/ April and Andy from Parks and Rec./ Dre and Bo from Blackish 😊
4. I don‘t want to say for fear of jinxing them and they break up. Which would break my heart😊
1. The ENTIRE In Death series (all 47+ of them!)
2. Mamma Mia! (And yes, I sing the lyrics to every song as loudly as possible while watching....and no, I am not a good singer!) 😫😫🤣🤣🤣🤣🤷🏻♀️💃💃🎤🎤🎤
3. Pasta, Chocolate, Cornbread (and no, not all at the same time 🤢)
4. I‘ll tag @Bourriquet76 , @ReadingRover or anyone who‘d like to play.
Thanks for the tags @JenlovesJT47 and @eanderson ! 🤗🤗
Complete joy right now visiting my folks. We love being up here in northern Michigan. I am sitting my a rocker, with my coffee and stack of books, wrapped in a fleece on this brisk summer day. Pure happiness! ❤️
I enjoyed this so much! I‘m so excited to have another long series to read thru!
At first, I wasn‘t sure how I would like the futuristic setting, but it was early in the story when I got really into it. The same with the romance between Eve and Roarke-I was worried it would water down the detective/crime parts of the story. It didn‘t though! I like Eve and Roarke a lot and am excited for the next installment, which I need to get my hands on ASAP.
I started the In Death series this morning! This is different from what I normally read because it is set in the future but so far I like it. Has anyone else read this series?
