My name is Selena and I am a series junkie.
Yes, there are times when I read a book and once I get to the end, I feel as though I am cursed to never find a stand-alone book.
Here is what I love---- When I find that perfect book.... the one where as I get closer to the end I just want to rewind and pause so that it never has to end. That is why I can't get enough!!!
Here is what I hate---- When I get to the end and read those words, "Look for the next, blah blah blah." And the thought passes through my mind, This really was not all that great, but, I wonder what is going to happen? Those are the times when I really hate to find out a book is going to be a series. I always feel like I am leaving something unfinished, so then I pick up the next book that I really didn't want to read, and waste a day or two :)
Here is what I really hate---- When I start a book knowing there are more, reading it, LOVING it, then totally obsessing over it until I have devoured the whole series and I am left thinking, I wish I had dragged that out! Why didn't I just slow down? Now what will I do?
Ok so maybe I should listed the last one as "What I really LOVE"
Sometimes coming late to the book series party is the best thing ever!! As you can see from the bombardment of Blackdagger Brotherhood reviews. I put my little BDB parade on hold to read "Bloodlines by Richelle Mead" when I finished I vowed to finish BDB before picking up another book. It is not fair for the story or the author for me to feel like I am forcing myself to finish so I can get back to the Brothers. So if you are reading this and have no intrest in the BDB series, I would like to apologize because there are 6 more coming ;)
