First of all – Thank-you to all who participated in my Poll. Drum roll please…… the answers were:
- 38% preferred Trilogies
- 31% preferred Single Novels
- 23% preferred Series
- 8% preferred All of the Above (and thanks to those of you who suggested this – I should have thought of it)
When I posed the question I thought for sure there would be a clear winner – but Boy was I wrong! To me – it looks like a fairly even split with trilogies and single novels taking the lead.
So… what do I prefer? Well I think it’s a toss up between the Single Novel and the Trilogy. I guess I love a book that grabs me, makes me fall in love with the characters and takes me on an adventure. But I like to know that the adventure will end or that I can feel good about the ending. I don’t like not knowing that things will end and I really don’t like being dragged on by a series. Now don’t get me wrong there have been series that I have truly enjoyed… And really – how do you define a series? Is it four books? or more? Hmmm…. my next poll question 🙂
