Sunday Post (133) / Stacking the Shelves (113)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Hello, Jackie here,

I’ve been finishing up reading trilogies lately. While it feels good to know how everything will wrap up, it’s also terrifying because I don’t want it to end. Maybe it’s why sometimes it takes me forever to get to the last book. Though, recently, some of the trilogies I’ve been finishing up has left me a bit disappointed. Sadly there hasn’t been one that’s wowed me so far. I think when it comes to choosing between standalones or trilogies, I prefer standalones. It’s just easier dealing with one book because you don’t have to remember what happen in the previous books.

  1. Nice reviews of Kalahari, I haven’t seen a lot of reviews for that one so yours caught my eye. I liked it too and Vitro as well. I agree with your thoughts, and was also a bit disappointed we didn’t find out more about the company. I wonder if she’ll revisit those down the road.

    Have a great week.

  2. I’m the same when it comes to series, I have some last in the series books on my kindle since last year, and I haven’t read them yet because I don’t want the series to be over!!
    Have a fantastic week ahead and happy reading.

  3. I am definitely a series girl. I dont like books to end. I rarely read standalone’s. Have a great week 🙂

  4. I like a series if it can be read as a stand alone so I don’t have to remember everything that happened in the previous books. That can definitely be bothersome and I don’t have the time to go back and read all however many books! Have a great week!

  5. I like standalones too. Except when it came to Harry Potter. I loved being in that world. Have a good reading week.

  6. I love series as well. In fact I also like ‘miniseries’ on TV more than movies and TV series. Unlike movies there’s longer to get to know characters etc but unlike a TV series it does end and offer some closure. I suspect trilogies (in books) are the same!

  7. I’m kind of doing the same with trilogies right now! Especially with my September Sequel Challenge. Hope you have a great week!
