Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Hop, hosted by Crazy For Books.  This week we were challenged to choose a new blog to follow and to leave comments on their posts.  First of all, I'm completely honored to have had Crazy For Books checking out my posts this week!  Thank you for all of your comments and I hope you enjoyed the blog as much as I enjoyed having you visit!

As far as my own choice goes, I have to admit that I didn't pick just one blog.  I try to comment on several every day, and this week I made sure that I commented on every post that jumped out at me as particularly interesting.  So instead of highlighting just one person, I'm going to link to a couple of blogs that consistently draw me in:

Each of these blogs includes a wide variety of books/genres, much like myself, and I find myself consistently commenting on their posts.  You guys are awesome!  Now for today's question:

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

Definitely.  It's actually something I'm really anal about.  I can't stand to start in the middle of a series - it just seems weird.

What about you?  Who did you follow this week?  And can you jump into a series in the middle?  If you stopped by, leave a comment - I'd love to visit you and read your answers to this week's questions!


  1. You were featured from Jen, how wonderful Julie.

    I enjoy your blog also.

    Jackie from Lovely Little Shelf is a favourite of mine.

    Have a great weekend.

  2. Anal-ness about reading series books - another thing we have in common! LOL!!

    Seriously, I have really enjoyed reading your blog and I look forward to your posts in the future! :)

  3. Hi,
    I'm stopping by for the Blog Hop and Follow Friday. I hope you have a great weekend. Happy Reading!

    I'm an old follower.

  4. Just dropping by to say hello. By the way I'm a new follower. Enjoy your weekend.


  6. 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!

  7. Hi, just hopping by. Like you I made more of an effort at several blogs, yours included :) Depending on what type of series the book is, I can read out out of order.

  9. Stopping by from the Book Blogger Hop! You're right, starting in the middle of a series just doesn't feel natural.

    The picture of Dexter might be one of the cutest dog pictures of ever.

    Hope you're having a great weekend!


  10. Hi Julie - found you on the blog hop.
    i'm thinking its not really anal, as so many people cant start a series in the middle!

  11. Just hopping by to say have a great week!
