Blog Hoppin'/ Follow Friday

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger hop is hosted by Jennifer over at Crazy for Books

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


Yes! I always read a series in order. I won't review a series out of order either. If I am asked to review a book in a series, I will ask for the previous books in the series.



Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee over at Parajunkee's View

Question of the Week: What is your monthly book budget?
Mine book budget is about $50-$75 a month. Some months I spend less and others I spend more. It really depends, but I don't like to spend for than $75 a month.

  2. Dropping by via the hop! I'm a new follower :)

    Wow, that's a pretty big budget if you ask me. Mine's just $30, sometimes less if I don't have enough money.

  3. Hopping through and following you now!

    I try to keep my book budget really low. I'm really blessed that I get a lot of free books through websites I review for.

  5. Hey! I'm an old follower just stopping by on the hop to wish you a great weekend!

    Finally! Someone with a book budget over $50. You just made me feel better about mine! I was getting a little worried after reading everyone's answers. Mines anything under $100.

  8. Yup, I spend about the same, and I wouldn't say I hate when I go over my budget, but my wallet does. LOL

    Happy FF!

  9. Tentatively hopping over, as this is our first ever Hop… Amazing design. Our budget has a tendency to fluctuate from month to month, but averages $30.

  12. I love that picture of Marilyn MOnroe reading. Such a young Marilyn too.
    I don't pay much attention to what I spend. Lately it hasn't been bad. Contests and ARCs and NetGalley are keeping me supplied.

    One of the first books I reviewed with Net Galley was Tyger Tyger and it's author, Kersten Hamilton, is guest posting and doing a giveaway at my blog today and the giveaway will go through Sunday. The book comes out on Monday! And, it is one of my favorite books this year. Come by/

  14. 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!

  15. I'm the same way -- I really have to read a series in order. It's confusing to me to read out of order even if the series is can be read that way.
