Welcome back to another Book Club Thursday.
This week we are talking about series books. For me it seems almost all the books I find are books that are part of a series in some way. Okay, so maybe I'm exaggerating and I do typically only read certain books.....BUT......
I'm not saying that I don't like series books. I do. However, I am so far behind in so many. And these days, many authors that write the series books-especially if they are more than a few books in- write them so CONNECTED it's impossible to jump in mid-stream and not be lost.
For the most part, I'm far behind in many of the series books I follow. But there are a few that ended that I felt cheated with. I realize that maybe there are times a series has run it's course for the author and I've also read some series that have gone on too long. I'm understanding enough to know that sometimes series end but I expect closure. But sadly, just like in life we don't always get that either.
In truth, it's a pretty smart idea for an author to write a series.What better way to guarantee your fans will keep buying. HOWEVER, I have a big problem when an author starts off in mass market in the series then gets moved to HARDCOVER. If you're a collector(like me), that's enough to seriously piss me off. I'm happy for the author and all but still....
I purposely did not mention any series or authors, however if you'd like to leave a comment about any series (ended or ongoing)please leave a comment below and I'd add my two cents.
What did my friends have to say about this topic?
