Today the topic of Top 5 Sundays at Larissa’s Bookish Life is Favorite 1st books in a series.

I read a lot of series but these days the book has to be really good for me to continue with the series. I’m already in the middle of quite a few! Just to make things easier from me, and a bit less repetitive so I won’t be listing the same favorite books over and over :), I’ll mention just the series that I’ve started in recent years.

1, Magic Lost, Trouble Found by Lisa Shearin
I just adore the characters in this series. (And the next book isn’t available on Audible yet. Grarrgh!!)

2, Ill Wind by Rachel Caine
A great mix of humor and danger.

3, Pride of Chanur by C. J. Cherryh
One of the best SF series I’ve read.

4, Unholy Ghosts by Stacia Kane
Chess is a very unusual main character but her voice sucked me right in.

5, Cocaine Blues by Kerry Greenwood
A mystery series with a lot of humor.
