It's Friday so it means it's time for the Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday!
First off, the Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer of Crazy-for-Books. It is a way for all the book bloggers out there to get together and find out about each other's blogs. I've found a lot of great blogs and bloggers through this hop and it's always fun to take part in each week.
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?
I will always start with the first book in a series, otherwise I have the chance of coming across things that don't exactly make sense which annoys and confuses me. It just makes more sense to me to read them all in order, that way I get the full story with the events happening in a logical order. Come to think of it, I don't think I have EVER read a series out of order.
The Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View each week. It works a lot like the Book Blogger Hop except that it's only on Fridays. I haven't been taking part in this hop as long but I've found a lot of great new blogs through this one too.
THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
WHAT IS YOUR USUAL MONTHLY BOOK BUDGET?
To be honest, I don't really have one, it mostly depends on what other things I need during the month. Usually I tend to think more in terms of number of books than in terms of an amount of money, it just makes more sense to me that way. This month I'm trying to save up and not buy any books so I'll see how that goes. Luckily I tend to accumulate books and not read them so I'm good for a while without buying any new ones. The only issue is there are a lot of books coming out this month that I really want. But I've been doing good so far.
School is getting slightly crazy right now but in just over a month it will be over...at least for the 10 days of break I get. However I still find the time to read, which may have something to do with the school work that isn't getting done but I'm working on that. I still have plenty of reviews coming and plenty of books to read so look out for upcoming reviews.
That's it for this week!
Enjoy your weekends!
