This is something new we (myself along with Born to Read Books) are doing this year. It's where we ask...wtf about something that's bothering us. Fun right! So here is what I want to talk about today.
I want to talk about "Books in a Series" can they truly ever be a standalone book?
I know I can't be the only one that as seen an author write that this book can be read as a standalone even though it's part of a series.
I guess they feel because of the fact that this book story ends at the end and the hero and heroine have their HEA that it's standalone.
Not so for me.
How when so often a character from a prior book is mentioned or something that happens in the town is mention? If I'm reading a book and they mention a prior character and the fact that they now are happy and have a child on the way why would I want to go back and read that story? I know what happens.
I know for some people this doesn't bother them but it does me. I would love to hear your thoughts on this. How do you feel about books that are "standalones" within a series?
