Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday (14).

Book Blogger Hop



I came across the Hop and Follow Friday while I was blog hopping - how appropriate! - and decided to join in on the fun.

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly thing going on over at Crazy-for-Books. Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee. If you're a new blogger, like I am, or have been blogging for a while, stop by the sites and get involved!

--------------------------------------------


Weekly question: If you find a book that looks interesting but is part of a series, do you always start with the first title?


Of course.  The only time I may not start with the first title is if I pick up a particular book, not knowing it's part of a series.

  12. Hey! I'm an old follower just stopping by to wish you a great weekend!

    Similarly to you, I start by the first book in a series unless I goof up the order by accident.

  13. Really cute blog. I've done that...picked up one that I didn't know was in a series. You spend most of your time going "did i miss something??"

  14. I haven't done it yet, but I would be very irritated (at myself) if I picked up a book, bought it, and then found out it was part of a series, haha. Anyway, old follower here - have a great weekend!

    If you get a chance, check out my blog :)

  18. Hi there, My book budget is something I don't think about. But, grammar lady, Kersten Hamilton is guest posting thsi weekend at my place on grammar, Jane Austen, Editors and giving a copy of her book Tyger Tyger to one reader. Given your interest in punctuation and spelling you really should read her post.

  21. I can dive right into the middle of a book series if the series' story
    doesn't run chronologically.

    That is to say, if each novel in a series is a stand-alone story (like Lee
    Child's Reacher novels) then I don't feel the need to start with book one.

    On the other hand, a series of books (like Richard Hatch's Battlestar
    Galactica novels) can't be read out of sequence since each new book builds
    upon the story of the previous entry in the series.

    Happy Book Blogger Hop Friday!

  26. This is a neat thing to do each weekend. I talk to several bloggers and they com visit me too. I'm excited about all the book coming out soon. I just wanted to say hi. Please stop by and say hi do my poll and giveaway for books.
    Depends on how many are in the stories and if they are in the same stories and stand alone otherwise no
    Thanks

  27. Hi! Just stopping by from the hop :-). I always start with the first book or else I get really confused. Haha. I'll read a series out of order if each book is loosely connected to the others and can be read alone.
