Tell Me Something Tuesday: When Series Go Too long

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post on Rainy Day Ramblings where Rainy discuss a wide range of topics from books to blogging. Weigh in and join the conversation by adding your thoughts in the comments. If you want to do your own post, grab the question and answer it on your blog.

At what point do you think a series has gone on too long?

This was an easy one for sure! There are some things that make me stop reading a series:

1) It feels like a chore. When I feel forced to continue reading on and I dread it…then it is time to say buh-bye. 

2) Things start getting boring and recycled. When the material starts getting repetitive and boring, then I walk away. The author is running out of ideas and there is no point moving forward. 

3) When a character does something or changes too much it is time to say done. There are times when the main character does something out of character or changes to the point it cannot even be the same character. This usually means the series is dying. 

Those are just the first 3 and most common things that indicate that a series is done and I have to walk away. 

The only pic I have been able to get of these two babies together. Mamyia is still not pleased with this pup.
