Book Blogger Hop: 11/12-11/15

November 12, 2010

I haven’t done Crazy for Books’ Book Blogger Hop in a while, but I thought I would join in on the fun again this week. It appears I’ve been missing out on some new ideas for the hop, but thankfully not much has changed, haha.

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?”

I have never read a series out of order and probably never will. The first book is usually my favorite in a series and it introduces the reader to the world, the story, and the characters. It’s like a first impression: it has to be good to hold my interest. If I don’t like the first book, I most likely won’t read any of the others. 

I’m looking forward to doing some hopping tomorrow and I’d like to welcome any new hoppers that may stop by! 🙂

    I’m already a follower hopping through 🙂 I’ve never read a series out of order, either. I’ve tried…but it didn’t end well. I tend to stick to reading things in order since then.

    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 there! For YA reads, I typically start at the beginning. Juvi, however, is easier for me to jump in, b/c most of those are pretty standalone.

    Happy Hop!

    Hopping by on the blog hop. I’m a new follower. Your page is refreshing for two reasons. 1) It just is and 2) I was ruminating last night about the fact that I never meet any male book bloggers and you’re the second on my hop today!

    Yee Hawwww!
