Q: What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to books? Maybe you don’t like love triangles or thin plots? Tell us about it!


A: My biggest pet peeve is making books into a series when the story is not elaborate enough to deserve one. I am tired of being unable to read a book and finish a story. It appears that lately I have to wait a year for the next installment in the series of all most every book to see how it ends. There are many series that I really enjoy and wish they would never end. Then there are a those that I just simply do not understand why I need to wait three books to have the ending that was obvious in book one.

  1. Hopping through. I don't like the having to wait a year thing. I like it best when they come out every six months.

  4. Oh my goodness this is such a good point. I'm all for a good series, but I hate the waiting and lack of resolution. I love a good standalone. I wish I got to read more, but I swear I can't pick up a book without being plagued by sequels!

  5. Great answer. I don't like that either. Especially when the plot isn't in depth enough to require more than one book! New follower!

    Here is my FF :)

  6. I'm getting a bit sick of series myself. I hate getting to the end of a book and having it NOT END. Sigh.

    New follower - love your site layout!

  7. Jessica@a GREAT readDecember 2, 2011 at 7:14 AM

    I get that sometimes as well. Although there are some series that I still love reading despite being long. Like the Hollows and the Women of the Otherworld. But there are others I am kinda tired of but keep reading because I know they are almost done, like the Southern Vampires series.

  8. Hey Erika, I agree, it's incredibly disappointing to purchase three books, and wait the year between each one and get what you already figured was going to happen and totally should have sooner...Blah!
    Happy FF ;)

  10. Turning a plotline that could have been resolved in a single book into an entire series is definitely a bad move on the author's part. Instead of having one really kickass book you get 3+ mediocre ones. Great answer!

  11. Oh my gosh, this would definitely apply to the HoN series and the Evermore (The Immortal) series by Alyson Noel. lol. I happen to agree with this to a degree. :)

    Happy Friday Hopping!

  13. Completely agree with you (and soulunsung about HoN and The Immortals!)! The series that did that to me recently is Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. I wasn't a huge fan of the first one, but I figured, it was only a trilogy and the third one is supposed to be fantastic! I just finished the second one (which I barely made it through) to find out that she is adding a fourth book to the series!! Ahh, why?!

  14. Aaaaah! I agree! I feel like 2/3 of YA trilogies could've been finished in 2 books. Or even one!

  15. Trilogies and series are just so "in" right now, it makes me crazy! Thanks for stopping by, I'm a new follower :)

    Most books are series lately. I agree with you - some books have enough story to keep going. But some books have mostly 'filler' just to stretch into 3 or 4 books. After reading a book I expect for the plot to have moved on and the characters to be in a different place in their lives.
