Follow Friday #14 & Book Blogger Hop #13

HAPPY FRIDAY!!  I'm joining in Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop again this week.  I've got a round up of what's been happening on my blog this week to give you an idea of what I get up to, take a look around!  


Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee, head on over there to join in the fun, meet new blogger friends  and meet her featured blogger of the week Insane Hussein.

What is your usual monthly book budget?


My book budget varies a lot from one month to the next!  I think on average it's about £30 (the conversion website tells me that is $48.65!) but I'll spend £80 in one go then only £5 the next month!  I'm just getting into buying e-books which could be dangerous!

Book Blogger Hop

I'm also taking part in the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Crazy For Books so head on over to join in the fun!  This weeks question comes from Christina at All About YA Books

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

I have to read a series in order!  I'm really a bit OCD about it, if I find a great sounding book the first thing I do is check out if it's part of a series and if it is start planning how to get hold of the whole series!  

What have I been up to on the Magic Faerie's Paranormal Review during the last week?

  3. Hello magic faerie :-) new follower, hopping along on the friday follow this week, and I prefer to start with the first book in a series, but have been known to start in the middle due to mislabelling ;-)

  4. Hey! I'm an old follower just stopping by on the hop to wish you a great weekend!

    My monthly book budget is $100 or less but with the holidays fast approaching I might have to make an exception.

  7. Hi Jen!
    Happy hopping day!!!
    I´m a serious book-a-holic and very easily persuaded to buy new books, so my budget is also pretty flexible! ;)

    Have a great weekend!

  8. 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!

  9. Happy Friday!

    Old follower here. I’m doing all three of the Friday blog runs. I don’t limit myself to budget with books. I just love to read and write so that line is always doable for me. And Yes, I love start a series at the 1st book.
