Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about book series…

Do you prefer to read stand-alone books, or books in series? Do you stick with a series the whole way through or stop after the first installment? Are there any particular series you enjoy?(question courtesy of

I have to admit that I am a series junkie. I love to read books that continue on with the same characters so that instead of wondering what would have happened to them, you actually find out. But don't think that I won't read a stand alone book, far from it. Series or Stand alone - they're all good to me!

This year I have read over 30 1st in a series books (there was only one I didn't care for), but I have also continued ongoing series. My favorites are the Mary Russell series by Laurie R. King, the Goldy Catering series by Diane Mott Davidson and the Anna Pigeon Series by Nevada Barr. I also really enjoy the Hannah Swensen series by Joanne Fluke and the Alexandra Cooper series by Linda Fairstein. I could go on and on. If you want to see what I mean, click on the labels for 1st in a series and ongoing series at the end of this message.

I just like books, books and MORE BOOKS! I don't care if they're part of a series or not. Here's my full response.

I'm behind in the Goldy series! Waiting for the next Alexandra Cooper installment. Happy Reading.
