Welcome to the Let’s Talk weekly discussion meme!
Originally hosted by Melissa from i swim for oceans, Smash & Kt took her original inspiration, and made it their own, expanding it to more than just books. Let’s get personal (but respectfully so) and learn more about one another! Each week, a different question will be posted along with a place to link up your posts and visit other people’s responses. This meme is definitely meant to bring out conversation and meet new people. So, Let’s Talk!
I’m loving this meme and how much fun is read everyone answer for the week question. It’s interesting to see a different side of the bloggers.
What are your thoughts on series? How many books in a series is too many? What authors do you think handle longer series well, as opposed to ones who seem to stretch it out less successfully?
This week is right up my alley, because I personally love a series and sometimes the first book is all about an introduction, but still very fun to dive in a different world and imagine what’s life for them. Is very difficult for me to read a stand alone, but a series I always devour.
I love a trilogy is the perfect amount of story, but the more the merrier. A few favorites:
- Dark Hunters by Sherrilyn Kenyon,
- Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward,
- Soul Screamers by Rachel Vincent,
- Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine,
- The MacGregors by Nora Roberts,
- Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa,
- Goddess Test by Aimée Carter,
- Shadow Falls by CC Hunter,
- Rough Riders by Lorelei James,
- Lux by Jennifer L. Armentrout,
- Mythos Academy by Jennifer Estep,
- Masters of the Shadowlands by Cherise Sinclair,
- Crossfire by Sylvia Day,
- Psy-Changeling by Nalini Singh,
- Elemental Assassin by Jennifer Estep,
- Black Knights Inc.by Julie Ann Walker
Okay this are definitely authors that can handle really well longer series, but there’s no way I can say anything bad about some authors, because if I don’t like a series I just stop reading, but that’s really difficult to happen and so far there’s only one on my list:
- Chicagoland Vampires by Chloe Neill
And I will read the last few books, but after the 5th I was a little afraid of the way things were progressing.
