Book Blogger Hop #11

Book Blogger Hop

Haven't done this one in a while, but I liked this week's question.

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer@Crazy-for-Books

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

Yeah, I need to read in order. I don't like it, but I do it anyway because I think you just enjoy more of the background and the running jokes. I can only recall once reading out of order, when I started reading the Bridgerton Series by Julia Quinn. I started with An Offer From a Gentleman because someone had told me it was a re-telling of Cinderella (it is, in a way), but then I realized it was a whole family saga, so I went back and read from the start all the way till the end.

Sometimes I wish I could read out of order, but if there is something that irritates me as a reader is when a reviewer picks up a book mid-series and complains about not fully understanding certain jokes, or the fact that characters kept popping up and they weren't sure why. Hence, I go in order.

What about you?
