So all this week I am going to be spotlighting a few book series that I enjoy. Considering the poll for next month’s Books-of-the-Month involve books in a series and I am doing a challenge involving the first book in a series, I thought it was an appropriate time and would be fun.
While I do enjoy standalone books, I love series as they provide readers with a chance to revisit favorite characters and to see favorite secondary characters get their happily endings. I do prefer that a book in a series be able to stand alone as I have been known to read a series out of order, but a continuing story arc can be interesting as well (as long as I know about it before starting the books).
There are quite a few series out there in all subgenres of romance…in fact it almost seems like it is impossible to pick up a book without it being part of a series.
And it got me to wondering about some things…
1) Do you like series? Why or why not?
2) Do you read books in a series out of order?
3) How many books are too many for a series?
4) What are some of your favorite series? (I already have my books planned for this week, but you never know when I might choose to do this series spotlight again so I look forward to your responses).
