Welcome to my first post of the year of the Blog All About It Challenge.  This is the beginning of my second year participating.

What’s it all about?

Very simple!  Each month I take the word prompt for that month and create a blog post of anything I want using that word.  My personal goal for participating in this challenge is for you to learn a bit about me each month. This month my focus will be on my Reader Girl Habits.

January prompt is FIRST

I am choosing to a Top Five list of (some of) my favorite FIRST Books in a series.

What is/are your favorite FIRST books in a series?  Do Tell!

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

Glad to see Overload Flux on your list, it was one of my favorite books form last year and a great series starter. You have my curious about the Dragon Consultant series, I remember seeing many reviews for books in that series on your blog and it sounds like a fun series.

I haven’t read any of those books. But there never seems to be enough hours in a day to read all the books out there.

Ain’t that the truth!

Stephanie Jane (Literary Flits)

Blue Ribbon Jalapeno Society Jubilee has got to be one of the most intriguing book titles ever!

It was a fun one, Stephanie. It’s an annual cooking contest and summer festival. The title definitely caught my eye when I spotted it. I think it got a new name when it re-released with Sourcebooks, but I prefer this title. 🙂

A great mix of authors, and I adore Carolyn Brown. My firsts would have to be Dark Lover from JR Ward, The Camel Club by David Baldacci, The Walk by Richard Paul Evans, Dark Prince by Christine Feehan, It Had to Be You by Susan Elizabeth Phillips and The Gray Man by Mark Greaney. Hope everyone is having a great evening or morning(whenever you see this-lol) Hugs…RO

Man! I still need to try Baldacci, Phillips, and Feehan at some point. Oooh, Evans and Greaney are new to me. I’ll have to look those up.

Thanks for the big hug and same to you, Radiant Ro! 🙂

It got a new title and cover when it was re-released with Sourcebooks after I read it as this (and I forgot it got a remake when I was typing this up) so maybe you read it under that title, What Happens in Texas. It was a fun one- again, one of her women’s fic/contemporary romance crossovers that I actually prefer than her straight up CR.
Oh yes! Did you see Bittner has a new one coming out this spring? Woohoo!
