Follow Friday (6)

Book Blogger Hop

Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop are weekly events hosted by Parajunkee and Crazy for Books respectively.  I absolutely love, love, love both of these weekly events!!  It is a great way to promote your blog, as well as find some great blogs to follow!  Hurry back to their sites, follow them, and let the hopping and following begin!

This weeks 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?"

My Answer: ABSOLUTELY!  I have accidentally started series in the middle of a book, and since then have vowed to do my research before I start reading.  I really love series, and I would hate to come into the story late and not understand what is going on.  I've noticed that majority of authors are good about series books still including pertinent information, so if you don't read them in order you would still understand what is happening, but I just think that takes the fun out of it.  Would you start reading a book on page 120?  No, you start on the first page, so why start a series in the middle!

Happy Reading, and Happy Hopping!

Good Morning Brandi!

Happy Friday. Followed you on Twitter too. Tried to send you note but you know twitter.

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.

Just hopped in to say hi and am now a follower. I have accidentally started a series too, but normally I start with the first.

Have a great weekend!

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!

Hi Brandi,

I'm soooo opposite. I've just stopped reading the end of books before I buy them to see it ends well...LOL.

Happy Hop!

Thanks guys for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my blog!

Welcome to all the new followers, and thanks for stopping by again to those of you that are loyal followers already.

@Dee, you really cracked me up. I've always thought it was funny when I saw someone in the bookstore reading the end of a book. I guess it makes sense, but that would kill it for me. I'm glad you've stopped :).

Happy Reading!
