Reading Book Series

Nowadays, I’m really fed up with book series. Most of the series I’m reading are still going on and new sequels are planned by the authors and more interesting book series are emerging.

What I don’t like about series is – imagine a situation: you read a book and you discover that the author is planning to write five sequels. When is the next book coming? In a year? Two years? Chances are you will forget what happened in the previous book(s), until the sequel is published, so you have to re-read the previous book(s), to refresh your memory.

I feel this is kind of taking you away from reading completely new books. It feels like wasting time. I mean, if you really love the series and you’re reading it again, there’s nothing wrong with it, but still it feels like you could be reading something fresh and new and instead you’re reading a book you’ve already read, just to refresh your memory because of the details you might have forgotten and which could be important in the coming sequel.

Therefore from now on I decided to read only books or series that are finished or are going to be finished soon.
