March 24, 2011 question: Series? Or Stand-alone books?

My answer:

Short answer: Series please!! I love being able to find out what happens next!!

Long answer: I feel like I answered this question a while ago so I looked back through my archives to see:

On September 30, 2010 the question was about a series “jumping the shark, you can see my response here. In that post I did list my favourite series: The Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, Anne of Green Gables, Earth's Children (Jean Auel), The Outlander series (Diana Gabaldon), The Josephine B. Trilogy (Sandra Gulland), His Dark Materials (Philip Pullman), Twilight, Rashi's Daughters (Maggie Anton), Magic Kingdom of Landover (Terry Brooks), The Foundation Series (Isaac Asimov), The Finovar Tapestry (Guy Gavriel Kay), and I would now like to add Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games trilogy!!

On August 16, 2010 I also mentioned my love of series (you can read that post here).

On June 3, 2010 I wrote about my love of lengthy novels, especially in a series (here).

So back to the short answer: I love reading books in a series!!


  1. Series for Sure! I love a story that goes on for a while, it lets the characters evolve and I feel like there is something to look forward to in the next book. If I am going to read the next book it must be a good series! My favourites are Harry Potter #1 a great fantasy for old and young alike, and my new Favourite is The Hunger Games Trilogy. Í've only just read the first book but I couldn't put it down.

  2. Sara, how about Clan of the Cave Bears? I just saw it on the shelves at Chapters. Is it worth the read...I think this was a favourite of yours wasn't it?

  3. how could i forget the clan of the cave bear (book one in the earth's children's series!!) jean auel JUST released the final book in the series on tuesday and I started reading it yesterday!!
