Blog Hop Friday!

>>Friday, November 12, 2010

Yay! It's Friday and that means Crazy for Books is hosting the weekly blog hop! It's when people post their book blogs so we can network and discover other blogs who share our interests. 

Today'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?

I will always start with the first in a series. Unless they are stand-alones set in the same universe, I may start in the middle, but even then I tend to read books in the order the author meant to us to read them. I would feel like I was missing something if I didn't start at the beginning of the book. 


  1. Hi, hon - happy to be tagging along as a new follower. Looking forward to your review on Black & White (it's been on my to-read list for a while now).

  2. Just stopping by to share some Friday blog love! Have a great weekend! Trillian

    Come and link reviews of books with a war/battle element on this week's Read My War Review

  3. 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!

  4. Hi,

  5. Seems like most of us start with the first book n a series, and read in order. I find I can follow a storyline more easily if I'm not wondering who people are, what's going on, etc.

    Happy Hopping!
