Top 5 Sundays #7

It's Sunday already! I went to the most awesome concert by Seether last night! I'm still coming down from that rock music high... :) Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray (Deluxe)

Time for another Top 5 Sunday - hosted by Larissa. ..
The theme for today is:
Favorite 1st Books in a Series! 
 This is hard, I have to actually look at my books to be reminded which first books I really liked. :) I have so many great series. 

1. Guilty Pleasures (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter)Guilty Pleasures  
This is just a classic for me - I love being introduced into Anita's world.

2. Dark Lover (BDB)  Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 1)   
If you've been here before -you KNEW I would pick this one. Wrath and Beth start us off in this book and the WARDen builds the awesome world of BDB that I never want to leave. 

3. Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows)  Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows, Book 1) 
You get to see Rachel struggle with starting her new life, the beginnings of her partnership with Ivy and Jenks, and we are introduced to characters who will be around for awhile... (Trent :) 

4. The Darkest Night (LOTU)  The Darkest Night (Hqn) 
I don't know if technically this is book one - but we'll go with it. Maddox -hot! And again with the introduction of the sexy lords and the world that I love!

5. Storm Born (Dark Swan)  Storm Born (Dark Swan, Book 1) 
So, I haven't actually read book 2 or beyond, yet - but I really enjoyed this one. Eugenie is an awesome, kick-ass heroine, and the romance part - yum :)

Alrighty, so there you have my top 5. First books were hard, especially when the series is so far in, I had to ask myself, "Would I re-read that one?" "Do I remember what happened in that book?"

So, what's yours? :)   


  1. Great picks! I contemplated putting some of those on my list. I love love love Trent and Wrath. Good picks.

  2. "Seether" wow...

  3. I would have picked Dead Witch Walking as well, but I read book 3 first..sooooo book 1 wasn't really first for me. lol That's my favorite series though!

  4. I need to read a couple of them yet ;]

  5. Dude!! So envious that you went to a Seether concert! I love them! Can't wait to get their new CD Tuesday!! I did see them once at a concert, Evanscence 04! Best concert ever since they were one of the opening bands and sang Broken with Amy Lee. 3 Days Grace and Breaking Benjamin were also there, so I LOVED that concert...OMG, just realized that was 7 years ago...almost since it was in the summer! :)

    Great top 5 too by the way! Love Kim's books and Richelle's as well!
