As I was browsing through my favorite blogs, I read a post on Romancing the Blog by MG Braden about her confessions of being a Series Slut. I have to totally commiserate with her. And for the same reasons.
I got hooked on romance books due to my favorite Aunt Susie and her girls. They were excited about our family, Native American ancestors that were used in a novel they just happened to be reading. I loved to read before this incident...but mainly stuck to Nancy Drew and VC Andrews. Which also goes to show my love of anything dramatic and mysterious.
What makes me a series slut? Well, it is my analytic need to finish. I love knowing what happens after a HEA. I enjoy knowing what happens to brother Bob or crazy best-friend Betty. Fern Michaels was my first and La Nora seems to be the most recent.
I still enjoy the desire for reading series. BUT...I also become bored after reading too many books by a certain author because sometimes it seems too familiar. It gets old when I can read the first chapter and can tell you how it will end...and who is next. BUT...it's an addiction. I have to follow through if I know there is another book or especially if it's a trilogy.
I just love to read. Do you prefer series or singles?
