We meet again dear readers!
I enjoyed finding out more about you all from our last post. This week I was thinking we could discuss our opinions on book series and whether we appreciate them or would prefer one instalment of a story.
I have previously discussed my lack of literary patience when it comes to series of novels. I do love them, but I like to only ready them when I know the series has already been concluded. Harry Potter being a famous example. My bestie still mentions how hard it was for her to wait for the next book. I read the entire series in little over a week, University courses all but forgotten at the time, as I lived in their literary world and mourned with them in the end.
So for all the series which I mentioned in our previous post: Hunger Games, The Maze Runner, I neglected to mention the Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare (I LOVED THAT SERIES) I only read them after they had been concluded.
The only instance where I had not followed my rules was when I was tricked into a new book by a friend and had not realized it was a part of a series. Oh how my impatient literary heart scorned said friend. This series was The Waterfire Saga by Jennifer Donnelly.
Now look at those covers! Fun fact about this series: Disney approached the author to write them. How amazing is that?!
They are fantastic and I definitely recommend them to readers who love this genre, especially now that they are finished (*insert wink-y emoji here).
What is your preference dear readers: one or many?
I shall leave you here literary lovelies and look forward to hearing your thoughts on how patient you are with series novels or if you too might prefer the one-off stories, as I have a tendency to lean towards.
Postscript: You should read the Infernal Devices Series now! Go! Fast!
