Musing Mondays - August 24, 2009




Today's Musing Mondays post from Just One More Page 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 installment? Are they are 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. Happy reading!

I don't think I have a real preference one way or the other. If a book is enjoyable enough, whether it be stand alone or series, I am hooked. A series won't necessarily turn me away from the book though. In fact, finding out that a book I have thoroughly enjoyed is part of a series is a wonderful joy.


Certain series I enjoy or I have enjoyed include the following:

The Mr. and Mrs. Darcy Mysteries by Carrie Bebris
The Gretchen Lowell/Archie Sheridan Trilogy by Chelsea Cain
The Smoky Barrett Mystery/Thrillers by Cody McFadyn
The Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer
The Dollanganger Saga (Flowers in the Attic) by V.C. Andrews

I like them either way... BUT if they're in a series, I do like that because that means more books for me to read!

I'll read a stand alone but if I love a book I want it to be a series. I enjoy reading more about the characters and their adventures.

I like both, but I sure do enjoy a series! I can follow my favorite characters for a few books! I love it! The only problem is waiting for the books to come out...ugg!

Lori you will LOVE Fablehaven! I suggest you start them immediately! 4 books are currently out, with a 5th on the way!
