Tell Me Something Tuesday is hosted by Heidi @ Rainy Day Ramblings. There is a new discussion question each week. You can find all the details on her page. Hope you all decide to join!
This week’s question: To continue or not to continue…..let’s talk about series! What are some of your favorite series that you continue to read? What would cause you to not continue a series?
There are so many series that I have started, it’s ridiculous. I have a lot that I love, but haven’t made progress with in years. I know there are some that I wanted to continue, but forgot all about them. There are just so many books with so little time! However, there are the series that I can’t forget about and I make time for.
Some of my favorites are:
Some that I love, but have neglected:
- The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne
- Stephanie Plumb by Janet Evanovich
- Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
The number one thing that will get me to continue a series is the characters. If I want to spend more time with them, then I have to love them. Or at least like them a whole lot. I can read two different books with the same storyline, but if one has characters that suck, then I wouldn’t continue. Of course, there are other factors that play in to it. Is the story itself interesting? Do I like the author’s writing style? You know, all the important stuff.
As for not wanting to continue a series, again, the characters. I hate annoying characters. Also, if the book is full of inconsistencies, then I’ll quit no matter how much I like the characters.
A couple of series I quit:
What about you?
