I'm definitely a series fan! Isn't everyone?! ;-)
Less than 10% of the books that I've read have been stand-alones.
More time for character growth and development. I really
fall in love with the characters from my favorite series and I
become very invested in the outcome of their stories.
Instead of always reading about different worlds,
I can comfortably slip back into old favorites that I enjoy.
There are villains I can really loathe because the longer they last,
the more time and opportunity they have to stir up my emotions.
The relationships have time to progress without feeling rushed in to.
But there have also been several stand-alone novels that have really blown me away. They are from a variety of genres like sci-fi, dark young adult fiction, new adult romance, science fiction romance, & paranormal fantasy. But what they all have in common is that they're unique and memorable stories written by incredibly talented authors.
