First in Series Challenge 2019

As far as I know, no one has a challenge like this out there, so I made this up to fit my own need, which would be to read some first in series books that I have stored in a drawer. There are twenty-three of them, and my plan is to read them throughout the year. The fun part will be incorporating them into the other challenges. Since these are all physical books, they will definitely count for the Mount TBR Challenge. Once I read a book, I’ll make it into a link that goes to its review page here.

If anyone wants to join me on this, the more the merrier! I have no prizes to give, I don’t require any periodic links check in, but it’s always nice to do reviews, and I definitely recommend doing that. I don’t have a linky widget in case anyone actually does want to do it. If you want to do it (using your own list of books, of course) just leave your page link down in the comments, so that others can peek at your progress. I have comments set to moderate but will approve it as soon as I can. It’s gonna be a good reading year!

    1. That’s awesome! I wasn’t sure anyone would want to do this one, but I’m just trying to read a drawer full of cozy mysteries that I’ve had for awhile. Method to my madness is that it’ll count for Mount TBR and possibly some other challenges 😉
