2009 1st in a Series Challenge – Incomplete



What: 1st in Series Challenge
When: 1 January – 31 December 2009
Who: J. Kaye (J. Kaye’s Book Blog)
Rules: Goal is to read at least 12 books that are the first book in a series. List can be made at anytime.

I’m not going to make a list this year. I have more than twelve series — some are trilogies, some are new as of 2008. But I do have a few goals, regarding the challenge:

  • If the series started in 2008 — definitely read in 2009, to determine if it’s one I want to follow and keep an eye out for the next book.
  • If the series is a trilogy — read all three, if possible (obviously, only the first book counts in the challenge)
  • New in 2009 — start a few new ones, for the same reason as first point.

01. Slave to Sensation (Singh, Nalini) {24 Jan 09} (REVIEW)
02. Ravenous (Ashwood, Sharon) {18 Feb 09} (REVIEW)
03. Shadow Game (Feehan, Christine) {11 Mar 09} (REVIEW)
04. Phenomenal Girl 5 ( Menden, A. J.) {1 Jul 09} (REVIEW)
05. Once Bitten, Twice Shy (Rardin, Jennifer) {18 Jul 09} (REVIEW)

~~ & ~~

This is the second year I have participated in this challenge, and it is the second time that I haven’t completed it. It wasn’t for the lack of trying. There are several DNFs that were first in a series.

With my move coming up, I’m being picky about what challenges I’m joining. I don’t think I will do this one in 2010.

My favorite of the books I did complete was Ravenous.  I’m currently reading the second book in the series.
