TGIF is a Friday feature hosted by the fabulous Ginger at GReads! to recap the week on your blog and to answer a fun question.
This week’s question is:
Stand-alone vs. Series: What’s Your Stance?
This one is easy – I love both!! Is that cheating? Sorry if it is, but it really depends on the style of writing, type of book, and my mood. I think some books have such a well-developed and succinct plot that a series is unneccesary. On the other hand, there are some storylines that just beg to be drawn out over more than one book. My mood plays a huge role as well. If I’m in the mood to just read a single book and be done with it, stand-alone books are my choice. But, if what I’m craving is a long, drawn-out, super developed storyline, then I tend to pick up a series.
I will say this – one of my bookish pet peeves is turning a stand-alone book into a series solely because of sales. That’s when a series flops for me because you can totally tell that the story is forced.
Here are my posts from this week in case you missed them:
