Book Blogger Hop #7 and Follow Friday #2

It's Friday again, and tome for the Book Blogger Hop and the Follow Friday. First up, the Book Blogger Hop.

Book Blogger Hop

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

My answer: Yes, definitely. I don't like reading books out of order, as I get confused, and if I've read book 3 without reading book 1, I'll end up muddling myself up, and not enjoy reading them. I can't start in the middle of the series, it just feels wrong. I always start at the beginning of the series, and work my way through all the books, in order. Also, I don't like being spoiled, so if I read the second book first, I'll know what's coming after the first one before I read it, and where's the fun in that? 


What is your usual monthly book budget?

My answer: Hmm... I'm not really sure. Depends what books I want, and how long it takes to read them, and stuff like that. Usually, I get through about 8 books a month, so however much those books cost. It varies every month, but I try not to spend more than about £40, if I can help it.

  1. Hi there! I'm a new follower from the hop :)

    I have to read a series in order, too. I always feel like I'm going to miss something important if I skip around.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Hi, I'm a new follower =) Good answer on the book budget - it really does depend on what books came out that month & how long it takes to read them. August was a crazy month for me.. Clockwork Angel AND Mockingjay?! on top of the usual reads. And I totally went to the bookstore & bought those new releases at full price!

  3. Good Morning Bella!

    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.

  10. Hi there! Just hoppin' on by. <3 I'm a new follower! :D

    My book budget is $0! I'm a poor college student, so I only borrow books from the library or read in Barnes and Noble while hogging their air conditioning. :)

    Kristina @ Frazzled Book Nommer. Have a good weekend! <3

  11. 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!

#readFreshers: BACK TO CAMPUS

Hey guys! Welcome to my stop on the Freshers blog tour. This book is hilarious and so much fun and I'm so excited to have Tom and Lucy on the blog today!



Here's Tom and Lucy's offering for today!
As soon as we started writing FRESHERS, we knew we wanted to go back to York university.  We spent three years there between 2001-2004 (Lucy) and 2002-2005 (Tom), and we knew that if we wanted to write a realistic campus novel, we had to go back to the campus we'd once called home. So, back in February 2016, we did. Here's a photo of Lucy reminiscing outside the big central hall building (which features quite a bit in FRESHERS). 


While we were on campus, we managed to sneak into our old corridors and have a look around, and it was comforting (and horrifying) to find out that students today are still as gross as we were back in 2001/2002. The corridors were sticky and smelly, and the kitchens were basically pasta-sauce-spattered bomb sites. We also spoke to as many genuine …

Series:  n/a
Pages:  308
Publisher: Penguin
Date of Publication: 1st June 2017
Source: For review from publisher*
Synopsis from Goodreads:It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card …
