Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!
My rant today is about books in series that are really not a series but one long book divided into 3 separate books. What identifies these? For me it is when a book just ends and leaves me hanging. I don't mind series books where part of the problem is solved for the main characters in the story but there are additional problems that can be addressed in future books. What I don't like are books where nothing is solved the book just ends with everything up in the air. And what brought this on? I just finished two books where that happened. I probably would not mind that much but I have to review one for a publication and I don't have much nice to say about it. Not my favorite thing to do.
So how about you. Do you even like to follow series? Is there anything about series that you do not like?
