Have you ever broken up with a series? If so, which one and why?
Yep. Definitely. Umm... let's see... the Significance series by Shelly Crane. That's just aboutthe only one I've done that with, because I'm usually the kind of person who just has to finish the books I start. But sometimes, they get just too tiresome and I cant do anything but stop. And with the Significance series, it started out really good. I loved the idea of it all. But then, in the 2nd part, it started going downhill. I forced myself to go up till the 3rd part, telling myself that it would get better, but after that I just gave up.
Oh and I just remembered another series I gave up on. The Thoughtless series by S C Stephens. I mean, first of all, I really wasn't comfortable with the storyline of the first book itself, and when it dragged on to the second, I stopped reading.
Sometimes, I wonder why in the world so some books have to be part of a series. I mean, why cant they just finish the story in one book? I agree that for some books, a series is justified, but there are others for which I really wish there weren't sequels and then a series and all that. I mean, do I really want to hear the entire story from the guy's point of view? No, thank you. I jsut read almost the same thing from her point of view in the first book.
Ok. No more ranting. I'm stopping now. So what series did you give up on? And do you think some books are better off as stand-alones and not part of a series?
