Thirty Firsts – 2019 TBR Reading Challenge

A large part of my TBR pile consists of “first in a series” books that I’ve bought in the hope of finding a great new series and then not read because I’m too busy with the series I’m already reading.

So I’ve set myself the “Thirty Firsts” challenge which requires me to read thirty “first in a series” books from my TBR pile as it was at the start of 2019.

Here are the thirty that I’ve picked

30 firsts
zig zag girl

I’ve already completed my first book “The Zig Zag Girl” by Elly Griffiths. I’ll do a full review separately but here’s my summary:

Genre: Crime
Series: Stephens & Mephisto
Plot: Serial killer in 1950’s England, targetting magicians.
Rating: 3.5 stars
Eagerness to Read Series (Yes / Probably / Maybe / No): Maybe


I’m currently reading:

shards of honour

“Shards of Honour” my first ever Lois McMaster Bujold novel and I’m delighted with it so far.

“Cry Wolf” a spin-off from the Mercy Thompson series, developed from a short story in “On The Prowl”.

I’ll review the books as I go along and track progress once a month.
