Hop, hop, hop!!

Book Blogger HopEvery week Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books (http://www.crazy-for-books.com/) hosts a blog hop. Put your link in, post a comment and you can discover a lot of great blogs. The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week. This week's question/task: If you find a book that looks interesting but is part of a series, do you always start with the first title? Absolutely. I do the same thing with movies. I saw The Bourne Supremacy before I saw The Bourne Identity. The Bourne Supremacy was awesome, but I felt like I missed something. They were talking about things I didn't understand. I had to see the first movie to get it. I bought Shiver and Linger after hearing about them on other blogs. I haven't read them yet, but I will buy the third book. Whether I like the books or not, I want to know what happened. I'm tempted by Harry Potter, but there are seven books.


Here are a few blogs I came across:

  2. What??? You haven't read Harry Potter? You HAVE to read them. There are lots of books in the series, but they are SO good. Really. Totally worth all that reading :)

    Glad to have found you via the Hop!

  3. I guess I'm in the minority on Harry Potter. When they first came out, I thought those were for kids. But then my attitude about books changed when I started blogging. YA isn't just for young adults. One day I'm going to get to Harry Potter!!

  4. 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!

  8. I did read a book by Rick Mofina that was out of sequence, but I didn't even realize it. It could have stood alone. I've been out all day. Now I can stop by other blogs tonight!
