Musing Mondays


This week’s musing asks…

• Do you read books that are part of a series?
• Do you collect all the books in the series before starting? What if the series is brand new, and the only book that’s been published so far is Book one? As subsequent books in the series are published, do you go back and re-read the preceding books?

I do read books that are part of a series. I don't tend to collect them all before starting, although if I really love the first one I will definitely rush to buy the rest of them if they're available. The Harry Potter series is the best example, of course, but also Stephen King's The Dark Tower series, as well as the Dragonlance series.
Sometimes, if it's been a really long while since I've read the previous book, I'll reread it before the next installment comes along, but it's not the usual for me.

I'm like you. I want then in order if possible and if I really love the series I want to own them all.

Hhmm Haven't heard of Dragonlance series, may need to look that up. Great MM!

I'm like you in that I don't get all the books in a series before I read the first one. I don't want to have them all if I don't like it. If I do like it, I'll continue reading the series, but I don't usually read them consecutively. I read other books in between.

If they are out already then I have to get them all. But rereading not so much. Thanks for stopping by.
