I recently saw the Borrowed and Blue combo pack.  This combines two books I enjoyed – Something Borrowed and Something Blue.  It made me wonder what type of series readers you guys are.   Here’s my habit….

  1. Even if I love the first book, I might not read the second in the series. It has to really appeal to me.
  2. I read every book in a series, although I might not read them in order. It’s just the way I roll.
  3. I buy every book in a series as soon as I figure out that I liked the first one. I want to have them ready at a moment’s notice.

I tend to be more like reader A.  If it’s a series that I’m completely obsessed with, like the Twilight saga years ago, I might go to the bookstore and purchase all of the available books in the series.   There are just too many books that I love, though, to commit to a series unless I’m totally enamored.   Therefore, I’ve read a lot of First books, but not the rest of the series. I’m anxious to find out what other bloggers designated as the must-read second book, so that I can break my vicious cycle!  I’m featuring Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin as one of my favorite books.  It was so refreshingly different, and the character interaction was so unexpected.  I loved it!  I wasn’t sure if I’d read the second book (Something Blue) but went ahead and bought it.  I was SO GLAD that I read it.  Something Borrowed made me like the characters who weren’t really my favorite in the first book.  It rounded out the experience.

A few days ago I was browsing at Target when I saw the 2-in-1 copy of the books Something Borrowed, Something Blue.  LOVE LOVE LOVE.  This is the best of both worlds, because you can immediately read book 2 without feeling as though you had to purchase another copy.
