Hippity Hoppity

It’s blog hop time again. Welcome one and all. Let me know you’ve visited and I’ll visit you in return.

On to this week’s question:

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

If I know it’s part of a series I always do. I think that a series is written as a series and should be read as such. I would worry that I wouldn’t understand things in future books without having read the first.

 

New this week:

Review: Q&A (Slumdog Millionaire)

Review: The Partisan’s Daughter

Review: Life on the Refrigerator Door

Review: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

  1. I feel the same way about series–most times, the author wrote each book with the whole larger story arc in mind, so you can miss a lot if you jump in in the middle of the series. 🙂

    I agree — series are written in a certain order, and it makes sense to read them in order. And it’s less confusing (most of the time). 🙂
