here, was to follow a blog and post comments. I chose to follow Ashley's Books from Bleh to Basically Amazing because I liked the title of her blog. Don't we at times open a book, start reading, and then go bleh. Other times, of course, it is an amazing read -- or else we'd all stop reading altogether!
She started a new meme or posting this week: Memory Monday -- about her childhood favorite reads, "with the emphasis being on the memories they created." What a fun idea! I remember books I read as a child much more vividly than what I read last month. Hmmmm, is this a sign of aging?
Today's Hop question: "If you find a book that looks interesting but is part of a series, do you always start with the first title?"
Not necessarily. At times I know enough about the character in the series; in fact I'm reading a book from NetGalley for review. It is by an author who writes both stand-alone books and a series. I adore her stand-alones, but have never read her series. This time, I decided to go ahead and jump in the middle. Look for a review on The Girl in the Green Raincoat in couple months. No, it is not by Steig Larsson!
