The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books and is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word!
"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 is part of a series, then I will check out the first of the series before reading the book that initially caught my eye. I tend to hate starting in the middle of a series - you tend to miss a lot of character development, even if the best books are later in the series.
There have been occasions though when I've read books that are part of a series without reading the first book. One of my favourite series is the Obernewtyn series by Isobelle Carmody and I actually started reading the series (many years ago! When will the final books come out?!) with the second book, The Farseekers and loved it!
So it can work - perhaps I should try it more often...?
