Friday Hop

12 Nov

The Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word!  This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!  Italso gives blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!  The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don’t have time to Hop today, come back later and join the fun!

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?


Books in a series are a challenge for me.  I generally shy away from a series, because I can’t always get to all the books.  If the series is a continuing saga — you have to read them in order and there are loose threads at the end of each book, I am less likely to pick it up.  If the books are stand-alones, but share the same characters or setting, I will probably read a it.  Generally I start with the first book, unless it is a stand-alone.

I also lead a book club that has been meeting for 8 years now.  We have a love-hate relationship with series.  We try not to read them, because, obviously, not everyone will like every book.  We have read a few, but generally steer clear of them.
