What is your usual monthly book budget?
Well being a teenager (who has no income.... I should probably get on that) I don't exactly have a lot of money to spend on books. So I normally just check out books from the Library. Now if I really love a book then I will buy it. Normally from a used book store or online for a discounted price. I am a real sucker for used book stores. But yeah even though I only buy books I absolutely adore I still have an overflowing book shelf. I just love too many books..... But to answer the question I guess I would say that I probably spend maybe $10 a month on books? Maybe? Really depends on how many times I visit a used bookstore that month.
The Book Blogger Hop is an opportunity to connect with other book bloggers, to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read! Want to join the Hop? Head on over to Crazy For Books and start hopping!
Now last week those apart of the Book Blogger Hop were challenged to find ONE new-to-you blogger in the list of Hop participants to follow and comment on five different posts. I took the challenge and the blog that I found was A Readers Ramblings.
I chose A Readers Ramblings because she is a new blogger and she is a teenager just like myself! I love to support other teen bloggers. I also noticed that we both read books in the same genres. I really enjoyed reading her posts this past week and I look forward to reading her blog more in the future!
These are links to the posts that I commented on:
Review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Film Friday: The Hunger Games
Review: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
Now on to the Book Blogger Hop question of the week!
If you find a book that looks interesting but is part of a series, do you always start with the first book in the series?
Well I have to admit I'm quite a stickler for this rule. I don't think I've ever read a series out of order before..... No wait for The Sisters Grimm series by Michael Buckley (great series by the way!) I read number 3 and then number 5 and I was super confused like "weird I thought so and so was dying and now they're fine? Oh well." And it wasn't until like months later that I realized I had skipped one. Kind of embarrassing..... Hehe. But don't worry I did go back and read the one I had skipped! :)
