10/19/2021 Do you prefer to read standalone stories, duologies, trilogies, series? 




OH, no preference at all! I love stand alones! Wohoo, jump in and be done.




Duologies, trilogies, the more the merrier. More meat on the bones.




Series, sure, why not, let's continue this adventure!




BUT! I do hate when it goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on, arghhhh, let it END! Some series that I loved I have frankly forgotten about and 5 years later I will not go back. Then there are those I still love, looking at you October Daye, I am just feeling done, but I still love, but I am feeling, let it end.

  1. LOL, same. I mean, it depends on the story. I'd rather have a series with a bit of a filler than a novella that makes me feel like wanting more though...

  2. Same. I love to read a series, duologues, stand alones. I just love books!

  3. I find myself reading mostly standalones if for no other reason than I just don't have the time to commit to a series.

  4. I agree. I don't really pick a book because it's a standalone or in a series. But when I love a world, I want to stay in it for more than just one book.

  5. I am the same. I like a good stand alone but also enjoy reading books in a series.

  6. Oh my gosh October Daye! I was just talking about that with someone, thinking of trying them...

    Same though. Doesn't really matter to me, they're all good as long as they end EVENTUALLY lol

  7. It's nice whenever I get standalones, but even with series, I don't mind as long as the books are good enough for me to keep reading! If not, I abandon them and it's no biggie.

  8. I go for anything too and a series is just pure reader fun.

  9. Yeah I completely agree with you

  10. I totally agree. I think for me a series becomes too much when the author has the same story beats from book to book, doing little more than changing the names. They can be fun as a palate cleanser but they aren't a favourite.

    1. That happened with Janet Evanovich for me

  11. Yes, definitely all the above. But, like you, when it's done then bring it to a close.

  12. I'm reading almost entirely stand alone's right now.

    Mostly because that's just what's catching my eye right now and it's easier lol

  13. I think it depends on the book for me. Some need more....some not.

  14. I'm the same. I just want a good story and if the author can do it in one book, I'm all for it. I do often want more time with the characters, but still enjoy the time that I have with them.
