I recently subscribed to Misty from the book rat on YT. There was an interesting topic that I wanted to voice my opinion on; series vs. stand-alone books. I don't think an author should be pressured into making more books because the publishers want to make more money off of them. I think if a book was meant to be a stand-alone, if that's how the author envisioned it; that's fine. There are plenty of good books that stand-alone and are still as interesting or more than a series.
I like to read both kinds of books, when I need a break from all the series i read, I'll read a stand-alone book. Most of the books I've read have been series'. I like to read a series once it has all been published and I can buy it all together and read it. I don't like to read a book and have it be so good that I can't wait for the next one, I don't like to wait.
I would like to thank Misty for coming up with this awesome topic. Here are some links where you can find her.
