We all live in a kingdom
Sometimes big, sometimes small
We bring shivers, happiness or boredom
Among other emotions you'll recall

You want to see the last of us first?
Doing this, I suggest not to
Or for you, our bond will be burst
Curiosity's a bad thing, you knew?

Be sure to meet us one by one, it's the only cost
Follow our bond or you'll get lost
Don't be afraid, our number can vary
But you will reach the end, surely.

Who are we, what is the kingdom and what is our bond?

You are:

Books? Chapters

We all live in a kingdom
Sometimes big, sometimes small

A bookshelf has big books and little books A kingdom is a book. Big chapters, little chapters

We bring shivers, happiness or boredom
Among other emotions you'll recall

Books bring lots of emotions

You want to see the last of us first?
Doing this, I suggest not to

In a series You should read a book in order, so don't start by the last chapter!

Or for you, our bond will be burst
Curiosity's a bad thing, you knew?

If you read a series book out of order, it gets confusing, and the magic of reading doesn't pull you in. The bond refers to the story.

Be sure to meet us one by one, it's the only cost
Follow our bond or you'll get lost

^Series ^In order

Don't be afraid, our number can vary

Long series, short series Lots of chapters, not a lot of chapters

But you will reach the end, surely.

If you have all of the books If you read all the chapters, then of course you'll reach the end.

First letters spell out 'book' (Thanks, @Techidiot!)
