This year shall be known forever as the year that Kris killed a gazillion series.
Well, ok, I’m exaggerating a little. It’s only been about five or six that I’ve given the arse to, but… it still seems a lot, don’t you reckon??
Anyway, when LesleyW posed the question ‘When Do You Give Up on a Series?’, I made the offhand remark that I knew it was time to give up on a series when I kept wishing the main character would just friggin’ stay dead already. *Paranormal romance. God, Love it.*
Since then, I’ve thought about it more and have come to the realisation it actually has to do with me being a characterisation whore. That is, if the main character shows no signs of growth or development and it’s same old, same old from book to book, I get bored shitless and give the series the old heave-ho.
So, now I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s not just me being a bitch, I feel much better… especially about the extra bookshelf space. 🙂
