Why I Love Wednesdays…Series
Mocha Girl Alexis from Reflections of a Bookaholic started a Wednesday Meme called Why I Love Wednesday. What is a Meme you ask? According to wikipedia…The term “Internet meme” refers to a catchphrase or concept that spreads rapidly from person to person via the Internet, largely through Internet-based email, blogs, forums, Imageboards, social networking sites and instant messaging. Basically, a topic from the meme host (Alexis) is posted on participating blogs with blog authors (me) answering it on their site (here).
The question this Wednesday is Series or a Stand Alone?
This was easy for me. I am 100% a series girl. Why would you want a good book to end? When you finish a REALLY good book, a book where you were having a hard time putting it down, don’t you feel strange. Like when you realized there was no Santa strange. Like the end of the best meal ever and you still have room for dessert strange. Do you go for seconds or go for dessert? I am always looking for a good series. I love getting the first one and following the lives and growth of the characters with there good and bad choices. Every time I am reading a good series, I will finish a book and get up (no matter the time) and get the next book. Thank God there is a Barnes and Nobles nearby that closes at 11pm. I hate to say it but Twilight had me rushing there at 10:30pm one night. And I mean rushing!!! For me a good series will let you start anywhere and you feel like you haven’t missed anything. Just like watching a soap opera. After a week you are hooked and it was on TV for decades before you joined in.
Series I Love:
Sweet Valley High – From my childhood
V.C Andrews (Dollanganger Series) – From my childhood
Anne Rice (Both Vampire & Jesus stories)
Viola in Reel Life – Just picked up the second book. It is a cute, quick read.
P.P.S. (Pet Peeve Statement) I can’t stand to read a series and wait and wait … and wait for the next book to come out.
It is your time to answer the question. Are you into series or stand alone? What are some of the series that you love?
