Personally, I like series. Sometimes I feel like standalones (especially shorter ones) can be missing something. Plus I like to be able to follow characters for extended periods of time.
There are tons of standalones I do love though! One of my favorite books is Looking for Alaska by John Green and that’s a standalone. Although… I wouldn’t mind finding out what happened to all of them after Culver Creek ….
But I’m a huge fan of series. Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Lunar Chronicles, anything by Rick Riordan … I could go on.
So, which do you prefer, standalones or series?
