If you do not enjoy the first book in a series…do you still continue reading?
If you do not enjoy the first book in a series do you still continue reading the series?
And my answer is: Most likely no, but I would be open to considering it.
A recent example was of a book I have recently given a bad rating, and the author contacted me, very kindly, and offered me the second volume in case I would be interested in giving another chance to the series. Her message and explanation did pique my interest, therefore, I have accepted the offer.
Most of the time, however, if a book has failed to pique my interest by the first volume, I will not continue. I have such a long TBR list already that I can’t help but feel I’d be wasting my time reading a series that I have tried but didn’t like. Of course, I could be wrong and I could be missing out a great series. So when in doubt, I check recommendations or reviews of other people who have continued the series.
How about you?
