Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger HopIt that time again! I haven’t been able to join in for a while because Friday used to be a work day, but as it is now my day off, I’m back! Go over to crazy-for-books.com to read the rules and how to join in! This week’s question is:

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

Yes! I don’t want to miss out on any of the action and the chance to get to know the characters. Even the Discworld series I began at the beginning, although not every character is in every book. I don’t want to miss out on anything!

Do leave a comment if you have dropped by, and I hope you like my site and reviews 🙂

  1. Hi I am stopping by for the Hop. I think the layout or your blog is beautiful. I am also a new follower and look forward to reading more of your posts. Hope you have a good weekend 🙂

    Oh yes as to the question re series. I have always started at Book one of a series except for my current read funnily enough.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your background is very cute. :]

    Also, I love your Last Chance/Keeping the Moon review! I’m also a Dessen fan.

    Have a fabulous weekend!

  3. I’m the same way – I hate to miss out on anything. The whole reason I read series’ is because I like to sink into the characters/setting/story. I can’t do that if I don’t start it from the beginning.

    So glad to have found you via the Hop. Enjoy your day off!

  4. Hi there! Hoppin’ by from the Hop! I started with book 1 of Discworld too, even though most of the books are only loosely connected. I always read the first book first if I can. Have a nice weekend!
    PS. I love your banner, so nice and shiny!

  5. 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!
