This is another challenge that I finished the reading part of earlier this year. When I signed up for it, I had no idea I’d would ultimately end up reading so many 1st in a series.   Nearly half the books I’ve read so far this year were 1st in a series.

As for continuing the series listed above, I plan to continue with five of them. Of the five, one turned out to be only a duololgy — Song of Scarabaeus — so it’s not a hardship. The Kitty Norville series is the longest of the group, so I have some catching up to do. As for the series not listed, so far I plan to continue with those as well. I’ll do a follow-up at the end of the year, listing all the series I started.

I’ve already joined a slightly different type of “1st in a series” challenge on Good Reads, so I’m not really sure if I’ll do this one again next year. We’ll see.
