Musing Mondays

Musing Mondays is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

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


Yup I love to read series books. I have the most enjoyment when I can watch characters grow and experience. It's like watching a mini series of movies in my head.

If I end up really enjoying a series, I will buy the books to keep. Especially if I think I might go back and re read them at some point. It's great to be able to read several books in a series back to back however there is a great thrill in reading the first book of a series when it comes out. Makes for a long wait in between so it's 50/50 for me on that question. As subsequent books come out I sometimes go back and re read the preceding book if I feel I have forgotten too much, though not all the time.

I tend to collect the "series" books :D I don't normally keep the stand alone ones.

I LOVE watching the "mini series" as I read! Series are just about my favorite thing to read, because I never want the story to end!

I fuss about the wait for new books in a series. Especially when they come out a year or more apart.

Good answer. I'm like you--re-reading just to refresh myself.
