Thoughtful Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Reading Is Fun Again where I’ll answer whatever bookish question is thrown at me. If you would also like to participate, find out the rules by clicking here.
This Week’s Question:
There are lots of different types of series. For example, there are series that are just one long story (e.g., The Lord of the Rings), there are series that follow a character on a set of different adventures (e.g., The Dresden Files and The Sookie Stackhouse novels), and there are series that are a collection of stand alone novels all within the same universe (e.g., Star Wars Universe). What is your favorite type of series?
I have never really considered this question before today but can honestly say I don’t have a particular preference. It really is dependent on the series in question. Some stories have plots so complex that they have to encompass more than one book in order to leave their readers with a sense of completion. Others have such extraordinary, intricate characters that it would be almost a crime not to prolong their existence through the use of multiple books.
