This week's question: Do you prefer series or stand-alone novels and why?
I really love reading a series. But the characters and the plotline have to be captivating enough to make me read 4 or 7 of them (I'm thinking specifically of The Books of Ember or the Harry Potter Series) I love a stand-alone novel that answers all my questions. But there are some stand alone novels that are so compelling that I don't want the story to end. The first book that comes to mind is "Elsewhere" by Gabrielle Zevin. I loved the world she created and wanted to go back to it over and over.
So I would say that I'm kind of middle of the road on this question. I like both!!
