Once again, it is time for another Blog Hop. I love discovering new blogs to follow! I hope that you enjoy this blog and become a new follower! Thanks to the wonderful "Crazy-for-Books" blog for hosting each week.
The question this week is: If you find a book that looks interesting but is part of a series, do you go back and start with the first one?
My answer: First, I try not to get involved in series books, but in the young adult genre/market, that is nearly impossible. So, when I find a new series, I always start with the first book. If I like it A LOT, I will read the rest...if not, then I'll just stop after that one.
Obviously, it is really important in my job to know whether the series books can be read out of order (ie: Redwall series by Brian Jacques), or MUST be read sequentially. And to be honest, while I do read a number of book #1s, there are not very many teen series that I feel compelled to keep up with. As long as I know the premise, I'm okay.
What about you????
