Follow Friday & Tagalong Friday {6}

Follow {my Book Blog} Friday is a weekly event hosted by

This week's feature blog is:
My Keeper Shelf

This week's question:
Do you choose a book by its cover?

I really try not to but I'm guilty! I recently strolled into my local bookstore and was fascinated by a few pretty book covers and ended up tossing them in my basket (I did read the back cover before though). It's really hard for me to pick up a book with an unappealing cover, I don't want to display an ugly cover on my bookshelf! Damn you beautiful get me every time!!!

Happy Follow Friday!

18 & Over Book Blogger Tagalong Friday is a weekly theme hosted by Laurie at Bitten by Paranormal Romance where book bloggers who review adult books come together to make new friends and share little tidbits about themselves!

Question of the week:
You make your own question this week.
My Question: How do you like to read your series? Do you read them back to back or do you spread them out?

It all depends on how much I enjoy the series but I like to read my series back to back for the most part. When I really get into a series I keep reading until I've reached the last book, my prime example of this is the Black Dagger Brotherhood series...I was completely addicted and couldn't tear myself away until I finished all of the books released so far. If I'm not totally in love with a series I can spread them out between other reads but usually don't wait too long in between, waiting too long can make me forget some of the previous storyline! Reading a series back to back can sometimes get a little hard to do when the series is not completed...the wait can be torturous!'re it!

  1. Hi Lori, thanks for having a look at my blog vis Follow on Friday I'm now your newest follower. Your blog is gorgeous and I love the UK vs US cover post.

  2. I can’t help but judge a book by a cover b/c I’m a graphic designer so it bothers me times 1,000,000…hahaha. Sometimes though I may go on GR and look at the reviews and etc. and add it in my might read list and won't get to it for probally a year. LOL

  3. Oh Lori! I'm the same way! You know how long it took me to read the Mercy Thompson series? Forever. Because of the covers.

  4. Unless it's *really* good, or I'm desperate to catch up because the latest entry is beckoning, I like to spread my series out.

  5. New follower! LOVE the purple and black! As to your question, it kinda depends on my mood on the series.

    Lately it's been back to back but like a few others I'd read one or the other. =)

    Have a lovely weekend!
