This week Booking Through Thursday ask:Stand-alone.
Series or Stand-alone?
My main reason to preferring stand-alone is because once I finish a book, I like to be done. I like to move on to the next book, character, world. I am not a person that likes to linger. I might wonder what happened to the characters afterwards, but I really don't want to know. Maybe this ties in with my pet peeves about epilogues.
I do read series, right now I have five different series in some state of completion. It was not my intention to start series, but when I started to read urban fantasy/paranormal, most of the books were part of a series. And I got sucked in. I do enjoy them, but sometimes I get the feeling that authors keep adding elements to make the series last longer instead of just letting it end.
When I read book blogs I find that I don't consider books that are part of a series, especially if it is not a completed series. I hate waiting and I don't want to start another series until I have completed the ones that I have already started.
So what about you? Series or Stand-alone?
