Let's start off the new year by recommending series we thought had great starts! This can be series where you thought the first book was the best one, or even if you liked a sequel better you can talk about which first books made you eager to continue a series. Brand new series and backlist series are all welcome.

Happy New Year!

Don't forget to post your links below and check back to see what others are recommending. :)
