Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about book series…
Do you prefer to read stand-alone books, or books in series? Do you stick with a series the whole way through or stop after the first instalment? Are there any particular series you enjoy?(question courtesy of Elena)
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.
I wouldn’t say that I prefer either stand-alone or serial books over the other. Both are separate formats and I think they should be considered differently. I love both.
I do enjoy reading books in series – if it’s a story that I love, then naturally I always want to read more! I have, in the past devoured and even reread whole series – Anne of Green Gables, Harry Potter, Incarnation’s of Immortality, Discworld.
I have noticed of late, however, that I’ve not been reading as many series as I used to, with my reading habits progressively changing over the past year or so. I’ve started several series in the past year or so that I haven’t completed – Dresden Files (Butcher) and Southern Vampires (Harris) just to name a few. I do intend to go back to them, just haven’t managed to do so yet.
