I'm thinking about it... It's not quite what you think - I'm referring to cheating on a series, not a person (but, yes, still cheating). You see, the next Breed (Lora Leigh) book on my TBR list is Bengal's Heart. The heroine is a reporter, and the reporter heroine always annoys me. I'm not quite sure why...maybe because the reporter heroine is (almost) always forward and feisty...and because she usually goes a step too far to get the story (and thus enters TSTL territory). Plus, the reporter career is one that seems to crop up again and again and again...and I like variety *grin* And another check in the negative column is that this particular hero doesn't really do it for me. I know, I know, I'm insane!
So, I was thinking about my options: a) skip the book entirely; b) skip-read the book for the relevant overall plot arc and the introduction of any new characters; or c) read the whole book. What do you think I should do? And do you read a series in order regardless...or do you skip a book if that particular plot and/or characters doesn't interest you? I await your thoughts with bated breath!
FYI - apologies that this post is late. It was meant to appear last night but right in the middle of drafting this literary masterpiece (/sarcasm) the power cut out. Yes, again! Good thing I have non-electrical heating (aka the fire). Still, having a shower by candlelight isn't all it's cracked up to be. The power came back on just after I got out of the shower...Murphy's Law!
