I’ve decided to join yet another challenge! This one is the First In A Series Challenge, hosted over at Thoughts of Joy.

The challenge runs from January to December 2008, during which time participants must complete twelve books that are the first in a series.

Here are fourteen possibilities, though I reserve the right to change this list; I don’t like to have my reading plans (or any plans, really) set in stone. Also, I’m not sure all of these count; there have to be at least three books in the series, and I’m not sure all of these will end up being trilogies. For the newer releases, I just know that somewhere there is something about it being “book one.” So, I don’t know about all of them.

  1. A House of Night: Marked by PC And Kristin Cast
  2. Hallowmere: In The Serpent’s Coils by Tiffany Trent
  3. Chasing Yesterday: Awakening by Robin Wasserman
  4. Vampire Academy Book One by Richelle Mead
  5. Crystal Doors: Island Realm by Rebecca Moesta and Kevin J Anderson
  6. The Promises of Doctor Sigmundus: The Hollow People by Brian Keaney
  7. The Seventh Tower: The Fall by Garth Nix
  8. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray (this is a re-read, but I want to read it before The Sweet Far Thing)
  9. Drama!: The Four Dorothys by Paul Ruditis.
  10. Fairies of Dreamdark: Blackbringer by Laini Taylor
  11. May Bird and the Ever After by Jodi Lynn Anderson

  14. Goose Girl by Shannon Hale (This is the first, right?)
