Thursday's Discussion - Long Book Series

Why Long Book Series Are Better

*Disclaimer* 
Everyone has different opinions, we are all unique with different likes and dislikes. This is not meant to offend or put down anyone's taste. If you prefer a good standalone or shorter series, that's totally fine and dandy! This is just my personal preference. Let's get to it!



Character Development Matters
I'm a huge character driven reader. I care more about characters than anything else. I can have amazing fleshed out characters and kind of meh world building and still enjoy the book so freaking much. So with a longer series, I get to spend more time with these characters that I have fallen in love with and never want to part form.

I'm Not Good at Saying Goodbye
I am so bad when it comes to saying goodbye to a series that I love. Take Twilight for example, back when I was first reading that series in 2008, I actually stopped reading a few chapters from the end because I couldn't handle saying goodbye. It was YEARS later when I finally read the very end. With longer series, I can get more and not have to worry about that awful goodbye.

World Building - The Bigger the Better
Well, the world doesn't have to be huge but more details can be added. So, yes, I did say that characters matter most to me but with more books means a richer world, a world so vivid that it feels like it's real. Like Harry Potter, that world is so amazingly detailed that to this day, people still fawn over it.

Anticipation - The Christmas Morning Effect 
Unless you're a George R. R. Martin fan, you can look forward to having a new book every year. Nothing beats that feeling of finally waiting soooo long for the next book in your favorite series and then finally holding it in your hands. NOTHING!
