This week's Question:
Q: Have you broken up with a series? If so which one and why?Interesting question! My answer is both Yes and No. Yes, there are two series that I broke up. The first was when I was a teen I broke up with the Sweet Valley High books. I got older, and there were just too many of them, plus all the spinoffs. Out they went. More recently (last 5 years), I broke up with the Vampire Diaries books. The first 4 were fine, and I actually read them before the show came out, and then after the show was on the air, they came out with the 5th book. It was SO bad that I couldn't bring myself to read any more.
There are a few series who I should have broken up with long ago, and yet I'm still reading them. Examples are James Patterson's Witch and Wizard and The House of Night series. I kind of hate both, and yet I'm still reading them. I'm not sure why.
Then there are the others. These are generally trilogies, or shorter series, where I didn't really like the first book, so I'm in no hurry to read the others, or have no plans to.
That being said, I do find some satisfaction in finishing a series, particularly if it's lasted a long time.
