Ah....the In Death series. I love this series. I'm not sure why I like it, but it may be that I don't seem to consider it a series with individual titles. In my mind, it's one continuous story with the books acting more like episodes. I honestly can't tell you what happens in the individual books, nor can I really give you titles other than the first, a few in between, and the latest. Yet I really really love this series. Strange.
Started Survivor in Death on Friday, but only got a little ways in before exhaustion forced me to sleep (and a headache and the Tylenol PM). So I was determined to finish it yesterday. Read it on and off all day and then finished it in the evening. Is it a testament to Nora's writing that I got cried (well, teary-eyed) twice? Or was it just a bad emotional moment that had nothing to do with the book? Who knows, but I did really feel for the kid in this book and all the awfulness she had to endure.
Now, I've only read the J.D. Robb books and have never read Nora as Nora. I admit I wouldn't even be able to know where to start. Something new, something old? Somewhere in between? I'd hate to start off my Nora reading career with one of her more 'bad' books, or at least boring. I'm not much for straight contemps, but I seem to realize that I'm sort of missing something in the romance world by not reading Nora. I get the same gasps of disbelief when I mention not reading her that I also seem to get when I say I've never read Linda Howard (now what happens when I say I don't read Christine Feehan is another thing, another entry). Yeesh. Still haven't read Linda Howard, though I do have To Die For on my shelf that someone gave me.
So, if anyone's reading this and has read Nora Roberts, what should I start with? Probably wouldn't get to reading it anytime soon, but I'd like to know for future reference.
