Book Blogger Hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to discover and follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend bloggers, and gain followers. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday where there will be a weekly prompt following a bookish question.
When reading a series, do you re-read the previous book(s) before reading the newly released book? (submitted by Angelica @ Paperback Princess)
For me it depends on a few things! One being how eager I am to jump into the new book. Also, if I don't remember much about the previous book I will probably re-read if I have the time. If I don't have the time, or if I remember most of the previous events and just need a quick refresher, I will probably look up a spoiler-filled summary. Or look up a spoiler-filled book talk on BookTube.
This is why I put so much value in reviewing all the books I read because that definitely helps me remember the events of each book! With all the books I read each year mixed with my terrible memory I often need some sort of refresher by the time a new book in a series has been released, since it's typically every year or so.
How about you? Do you re-read the previous book(s), look up summaries, or jump right into to the new release?
Thanks for reading!
