Tuesday Thingers!

Today's question: Series. Do you collect any series? Do you read series books? Fantasy? Mystery? Science fiction? Religious? Other genre? Do you use the series feature in LT to help you find new books or figure out what you might be missing from a series?

I love series! I think they are a great way to get more of a favorite character, but I wish more authors would end their series instead of using gimmicky things to try and make their tired characters interesting.

Most of the series that I read are mysteries. Some of my favorite series are the Prey series by John Sandford, the Stone Barrington series by Stuart Woods, the Lincoln Ryhme by Jeffery Deaver and the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. There are lots more series that I follow, but on most of them I am at least a book or two behind.

I didn't know there was a series feature in LT so I will be checking it out to see what I am missing in my favorite series.

I love the Prey series, too. I don't tell many people this, but I love Rita Mae Brown's Sneaky Pie series, too. They're set in Crozet, VA which is very close to my husband's home town.

Agree that when a series is over, it should end - the authors shouldn't keep churning out bad sequels just to make more money!

I read the first Lincold Rhyme book and loved it. I've been wanting to read the next ones, but I haven't gotten around to it, yet.

Huuum good question!
I don't really like series. I prefer that good feeling you have when you finish reading a book and you wished it was longer BUT your imagination works to figure out what happened next.
That is the best!

I haven't read any of those series/authors, but like you, I do like to see more of my favorite characters!

I guess I do read a lot more series than I thought I did!
