Alex Cross Reading Challenge

Since last year's Women's Murder Club Reading Challenge helped me to finally finish that series, I decided to start one for the Alex Cross series by James Patterson. I've only read the first book, so I'll be starting with the second book.

Here are the guidelines...

1. Choose how many books you'd like to read from the series. You can read the entire series or however many you'd like. It's up to you! You can change your mind any time throughout the year.

2. All books need to be read between September 1, 2010 and August 31, 2011. Books read prior to September 1st don't count for this challenge.

3. If you want to participate, just post about it on your blog with a link back to here. Make sure you list the books you need to read.

4. Audio and Ebooks are acceptable. You can also use these books for other challenges.

5. Please use Mr. Linky below to sign up. Use the link to your post about this challenge, not your main blog address. Links that don't go directly to your challenge post will be deleted.

6. Once you complete the challenge, please post the link to your wrap-up blog post with Mr. Linky (I will put up a Mr. Linky for completed lists.)

7. There will also be a Mr. Linky for reviews, although posting your reviews are not a requirement.

8. You can take the button above and post it on your blog.

These are the books in the series that have already been published...

1 Along Came a Spider
2 Kiss the Girls
3 Jack & Jill
4 Cat and Mouse
5 Pop! Goes the Weasel
6 Roses Are Red
7 Violets Are Blue
8 Four Blind Mice
9 The Big Bad Wolf
10 London Bridges
11 Mary, Mary
12 Cross
13 Double Cross
14 Cross Country
15 Alex Cross's TRIAL
16 I, Alex Cross

I already read Along Came A Spider, so I will start with Kiss the Girls. I'm going to try and read 5 books:

Kiss the Girls Click for review
Jack & Jill

  1. I read them all, so I need him to write some new ones for me

  2. Hey, I just started this challenge. I posted a link on your Mister Linky things. I am excited to try this. I always start a series and end up not finishing it, or it takes me forever to do it.

    I started the Alex Cross series in 2008, as you can tell it is now 2010 and I am only 6 books in. Thank you for creating this challenge, it sounds like it is going to be a fun adventure.

    I am also following your blog, if you would like to check out mine, the URL is:

    I have linked both this challenge and your blog on mine.

  3. I just finished my first book in the challenge. I posted my review in the Mr. Linky. Here is a link:

  4. Just signed up for this one. I've never read any of the Alex Cross novels, so I'll be starting at the very beginning. Thanks so much for hosting!

  5. How exciting!

    I just found your blog and am so excited to participate in this challenge. I started reading the Alex Cross series in September which is so funny because I planned on reading them all but only got to Jack and Jill.

    I will link up to this post and add a page on my site when I get home from work!!

    Love your site!

  6. I have read or listened to every single Alex Cross novel that James Patterson has written!

  7. Just finished my second book in this challenge.

    Here's a link:
