Review of “Brotherhood in Death” by J.D. Robb

Trigger Warning: BID had graphic depictions of rape/gang rape and this review will include an analysis of Rape Culture.  If this is one of your triggers, please click away now. I actually forgot this book was coming out this month, probably because I absolutely hated the last book and felt the need to completely erase anything that …

Review of “Naked in Death” by J.D. Robb

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been re-reading Naked in Death by J.D. Robb and that I have noticed a few things in this reading that I hadn’t in the past.  What disturbs me about this reading is how much I don’t like Roarke.  I have never had a problem with his character …

Staying Consistent Throughout a Series

I am currently re-reading J.D. Robb’s Naked in Death for what is probably the fourth or fifth time and I am noticing things in this re-read that I haven’t before–things like Roark’s net worth and his relationship with Summerset, but also things like Eve’s POV–things that aren’t quite the same in this first book as they …

Review of “Thankless in Death” by J.D. Robb

I managed to get ahold of Thankless in Deathmuch sooner than I thought I would, and I spent the next few days immersed in New York 2060.  For those that aren’t familiar with the series it centers around Lt. Eve Dallas of the New York Security and Police Department and her husband, Roarke, a former Dublin …

Trying a New Author

Until recently, I pretty much stuck with the same authors, my bookshelves looking like an homage to Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb and Karen Rose.  I was loathe to try anyone new, and honestly I’m not sure why.  I didn’t start out only wanting to read one author (boy would my reading have been limited–7 books until Casual …

Review of “Loyalty in Death” by J.D. Robb

As I stated last week, Loyalty in Death, is one of my favorite In Death novels, but I have never reviewed it before.  If you’ve never read one of the In Death novels, the series surrounds New York Cop Eve Dallas and her husband, billionaire Roarke.  The series takes place in the near future (Loyalty plays out …

What I’m Reading Now

Anyone that has known me since I was a kid knows that I absolutely hated reading.  None of the books that I was assigned to read at school were very interesting–at times they were so boring that I literally fell asleep while reading them (why, hello A Separate Peace–8th grade summer reading), so it came as …

Review of New York to Dallas by J.D. Robb

I have been a rabid fan of the In Death Series since I picked up Remember When back in 2004 (my Senior Year of High School). I had seen the series in the library from time to time, but I never made the connected to J.D. Robb was Nora Roberts because it sounds like a …

Review of Celebrity in Death by J.D. Robb

Reviewed for the Smart Bitches Trashy Books RITA Reader Challenge: I started reading the “In Death” novels about a decade ago with the publication of Remember When, the joint Roberts/Robb novel that revolved around a diamond heist that happened in the present and stretched all the way into Robb’s version of the future. Picking up …
