1st in a Series Challenge

This challenge was previously hosted by J. Kaye's Book Blog and it was one of my favourites. Royal Reviews is hosting in 2010 and I can't resist the gorgeous button so here I am signing up for another challenge. I'll probably go with the fascinated level.

I've included the guidelines here but head on over to Royal Reviews to sign up with Mr Linky.

As so many of us love reading our series this one gives you the chance to include them in your challenges. As with all our other challenges there are various levels from the Curious to the Obsessed. If you start out at the Curious level and find yourself on the Addicted level then just change you post accordingly.

Challenge Guidelines:

1. Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate.

2. There are four levels:
  •  Curious – Read 3 novels that are first in a series.
  •  Fascinated – Read 6 novels that are first in a series.
  •  Addicted – Read 12 novels that are first in a series.
  •  Obsessed – Read 20 novels that are first in a series.
3. Any genre counts.

4. You can list your books in advance or just put them in a wrap up post. If you list them, feel free to change them as the mood takes you.

5. Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010. Only books started on January 1st count towards this challenge.

My Choices:








  1. The Fascinated Level you big chicken LOL. I bet you read more than that!

  2. I love that pic for this challenge! Love it!

    But I am not going to do this one... i am going to finish the series i started this year nxt!

  3. Editors sometimes discourage writing series, but your post seems to indicate that readers are looking for them.

    What do you like to see in a "first in a series" book to set up for more stories?

  4. I love the I'm in. I'll have to think about the books ; )

  5. I am definitely heading to Royal reviews! I missed out on this challenge this year and I love series. I have to sign up for 2010.

  6. Hi Em, I finished this challenge early in 2009, having read 12 1st in a series books, some of the books I owned and some were on my wishlist. I know loads of readers who like me are addicted to series.

    I like the series to be 2 to max 6 books, I dont like the series were there is a 18 books (Feehan) because I lose interest and the bank balance suffers to much :-)

    Must be an interesting 'world' (Hunger Games trilogy, Outlander series) characters I care about enough so I get completely caught up in their lives and want to know more, (Bride Quartet - Nora Roberts or The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie, Jeaniene Frost Night Huntress series, Oh how I love Cat & Bones, Jamie & Clare from Diana Gabaldon's Outlander)

    I like an ending where something
    is resolved but some issue leaves you wanting more. I loathe cliffhanger endings but hey it assures you buy the next book lol

    Don't want much do I :-)

  7. Best of luck with this one! I loved this reading challenge!
