Book Blog Hop (13): November 12-15

The book blog hop is hosted by Jennifer over at Crazy For Books. The idea behind it is to link up your blog and check out others who did the same!

I want to welcome everyone stopping by from the Hop!

I'm a 23-year-old aspiring YA novelist and on my blog it's all about YA novels, writing and movies! I'm really excited to be meeting everyone! Feel free to have a look around my blog!

This week's question:

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

Yes, yes and yes! I always have to start with the first title and I prefer to wait until most of the series is out before I pick it up so that I can blast through it. That being said-- there are some books I just can't wait for even though it is confirmed that they are going to be series.

What about you?

  • Make sure to check out all the posts for YA Love Triangle Week and vote for your chance to win a book from any of the posts that these delicious boys came out of!
  • Also, check out my idea for First Come, Second Served month where it will be all about whittling down sequels in your TBR pile! I need people to host giveaways and do guests posts.


  1. Hey =)

    I'm stopping by from the Book Blog Hop

    and I'm a new Follower!

    Your blog looks great!

    Have a wonderful weekend & Happy Reading!

    Welcome to Larissa's Bookish Life

  2. I haven't visited in a while so I am just stopping by to say hello!

    I have to start books from the first in a series. There are only 2 series that I am being patient with and getting each novel as they come out (and it's painful waiting let me tell you!)
    Richelle Mead's VA series, Last sacrifice is out in under a month now. And the 3rd in her Dark Swan series will be out next year.


  3. Joining you from over at the book blogger hop. Nice to meet you, I love the design of your blog.

  4. Happy friday! What a fun blog I just hopped into. Love it! I'm a new follower ;)

  5. Happy Hopping, Amber! I hope you have a brilliant weekend, and thank you for making your blog so keeps me coming back for more :)

  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. I typically start with the first book, too. I wish I could hold off on reading a series till most were out, but that hardly happens for me!

    Happy Hop!

  8. Hello! I'm just stopping by on the Blog Hop! I'm a new follower and I can't wait to read more.
    Feel free to stop by any time!


  9. I just wanted to say hi. Please stop by and say hi do my poll and giveaway for books.
    Depends on how many are in the stories and if they are in the same stories and stand alone otherwise no I spend about 50 a month on books

  10. hey dropping by from the hop!
    Cool blog!

  11. Hopping by to say enjoy the rest of your week!

  12. Hello! Hopping by! I'm getting ready for next week. It should be fun!


Thinking of writing something below? Well, that's why you are awesome! I always love feedback!

This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
