Judithe | 6371 comments Love or Hate @ FIRST Sight Read

Did it suck you in and leave you breathless for more? Or leave a hole in the wall after you chucked the sucker across the room? Join us as we check out and share our favorite, and not-so-favorite, new series!

Duration: July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012

*Read 12 books that are the first novel in a new-to-you series.
*Read one book per calendar month (that means, can't read and count 3 new ones in ONE month...)
*Make a MAIN post. This is for your full year list. Please UPDATE this list, not re-post it! Thanks! (links to each Participants' MAIN Lists below). Example here!
*Post monthly updates (new posts, please!) on your great/not-so-great "first" read.
ETA:*Prequels, "half numbers" (i.e. 1.5 by GR numbering) and anthologies are not allowed; they're just appetizers, not the "first course"!


For MONTHLY updates, include the following: (Example)
**Blatantly stole borrowed Steph's &Lethal Lovely's new series write-ups~THANKS!....If you haven't peeked, pop on over to the members' threads to check them out! **Warning, do not read when consuming liquids~LL's especially~unless your PC is insured...**

Judithe | 6371 comments MONTHLY UPDATE Example:

September 2011 (3/12 Done)
Black Wings (Madeline Black, #1) by Christina Henry

Title/Author: Black Wings by Christina Henry
Series: Madeline Black
Read: 9/26/11
Rating: ★★★★✩
First time author? Yes
To-Be-Continued? Yes
Review: This story grabbed me in the first few pages~laughs, action, interesting characters~loved it! It was easy to jump into this new world, and the first novel gave enough answers/resolution to be satisfying, but with tantalizing bits to leave you eager (though not DESPERATE~hate cliff hangers!) for the next installment.

Cindy (eclecticfirefly) (eclecticfirefly) | 1237 comments Kat - Shelley Laurenston and Cassie Ryan are both AWESOME! I like my books smuttier than some people, so be aware that both authors tend to turn up the smut factor in their books.

But - Shelley's books always have some LOL moments. The female characters are snarky and funny and don't take any sh!t from the guys.

Cassie's books are wonderful. SIGH..... I still have that one TBR. Kinda wanted to get the next one before I dive in.

Kat's Monthly Update: July

Blood Law (Blood Moon Trilogy, #1) by Karin Tabke

Title/Author: Blood Law ~ Karin Tabke
Series: Blood Moon Trilogy
Read: July 1st 2011
Rating: 5♥
First time author: Yes
To-Be-Continued: Definately Yes!!
Review: I Loved this book I devored it in a few hours for the simple fact I couldn't put it down. The characters were great, the guys were total alpha males and the girls were pretty kick ass too! My only complaint is the ending she totally leaves you hanging, I thought I was going to take a panic attack when I realized I was at the end of the book! All in all this is (for me anyway) one of the best books I've read so far this year
