This weeks question comes from Jackie @ Insane Hussein

I try not to spend more then $15 a month

 

 

Book Blogger Hop #1





Book Blogger Hop


This week's question comes from Christina who blogs at All About YA Books:

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

 I VERY rarely don't start with the first book, Well lets just say I have only done it once and that was only because there were like 15 other books in the series and I was promised the books don't mention things that happened in the previous books.

  2. Hiya!!
    Glad to find another great urban fantasy blog!

    I have been known to start series in the middle or not with the first book just because it wasn't labelled properly or because the computers in the store weren't much help ;-) But traditionally, if possible, I prefer to start with the first book ;-)

  6. Glad to have found you via the Hop and FF. I'm your newest follower!

    I can't start a series anywhere other than at the beginning. I miss too much otherwise.

  10. Happy Friday, Stacy!

    New follower here. I’m doing all three of the Friday blog runs. I don’t limit myself to budget with books. I just love to read and write so that line is always doable for me. And Yes, I love start a series at the 1st book.

  12. 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!

  17. Hey, Stacy!

    Thanks for stopping by! Like you, I usually prefer to start at the beginning of the series. Otherwise, I'm afraid I'll miss something important.

    Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
