Reading Challenge: A Book that is the First in a Series

Banner

Is your favourite book a stand-alone read or part of a series? The great thing about getting into a series is that if you enjoyed the first book, you get to spend more time in that world! The characters start to feel like friends. Each book might have a different plot, but there could be a bigger storyline that builds and grows.

Have you read all the Dog Mans and Dork Diaries? Explored every corner of Alledia, Pyrrhia and the Land of Stories? While waiting for the next chapter of your favourite series, why not start a new one? For this Reading Challenge category, try picking something in a genre you haven't read before. There are so many different stories out there, and each Book One is the beginning of a new adventure.
