  4. Dead to the World (Book #4)
  5. Dead as a Doornail (Book #5)
  6. Definitely Dead (Book #6)
  7. All Together Dead (Book #7)
  8. From Dead to Worse (Book #8)
  9. Dead and Gone (Book #9)
  10. Dead in the Family (Book #10)
  11. Dead Reckoning (Book #11)
  12. Deadlocked (Book #12) 
  13. Dead Ever After (Book #13) - expected publication in 2013

Please read below for the challenge guidelines.

3. This challenge can cross-over to your other reading challenges.

4. You do not need a blog to participate! If you are not a blogger, you can post your reviews at Goodreads, Shelfari, or LibraryThing and link them up here.

  1. This is such a great idea! I have the first 6 books but I haven't read them yet so what a great way to motivate me! I should have my post up in a few days.

    Thanks! New follower. :)

    1. Great, Mandee! Looking forward to having you join us!

  2. This is such a great challenge! I think I read up to book 9 (maybe book 10) so it'll be awesome to go back through and read the whole series :)

    1. Thanks for joining, Claire! You don't have to re-read...only unless you want to! You can jump in with wherever you left off in the series!

  3. I failed on the IAD challenge last year...But I am determined to do this one! Signing up now!

    1. You and me, both! I'm running the IAD challenge again if you want to give it another whirl ;)

  4. How about those who have read until book 11?

    1. No problem, Cherry! Just sign up for Level 1 "Just A Drop" which is committing to reading 1-4 books in the series.

    1. Excellent! Great to have you back, Michelle :)

  6. Hi, I am in the middle of reading this series. I chose Level 3, in case I cannot get the book at my library when it's released. but if they do get it, I will finish the series. Is that all right?
