4/11/2023 How long do you stick with a series you loved, if you start not enjoying the books? 

I am so weird when it comes to series. I start a lot of series and rarely finish them. If book 1 and book 2 were just okay....I rarely continue on. Now....if I get addicted by book 2, I'll finish the whole series. 

Normally I have to slow my roll and read other stuff for a bit to give the series a break. I learned this the hard way with the Anita Blake series. I read SO many one after the other and I got burnt out. I never went back and I adored that series. Someday...maybe....we'll see. 

Now, if the series starts getting super meh I will abandon it. If I don't care anymore...why bother wasting my time, my blogs time, and the writer's time? Sometimes you gotta throw in the towel.

I realized after I wrote my post that one important factor for me is if the series is already out or if I have to wait for the next one. I'm more likely to try the next book if the series is out, but if I have to wait a year or so... I tend to drop it.

I will never understand people who buy like a 10 book series at once. Like omg, what it they suck?!

Jen, I do like when the most of the books are out. I hate waiting.

B, RIGHT????
