Ramblings of A Bibliophile is a feature on my blog that I randomly post whenever I feel like I need something to address or I just need to rant out.
Waiting for the next installment?
I am the kind of person that doesn't like waiting (I mean, what kind of person loves waiting?) for the next installment of a book to be released because if it takes too long, by the time the book's released I have already forgotten what the book was all about. Then I'd have to re-read the previous books just so I can understand what's happening and when a series already has twelve books in it, reading it all over again is just something I feel is so tiring.
That's also a reason why I am always late when it comes to some books because by the time the series is finished that's the only time i would start reading it, and that's fine! I'd rather hide in my house and
I hate it more when the book ends in a cliffhanger and you get so excited for what's going to happen next but the book will be released two years from the time you started reading it. (ehem Iniquity by Amy Bartol) There are books that no matter how long it takes you'll still remember everything but those kind of books are very hard to find and most of the times you'll end up reading a series that's good but never amazing so halfway through it you'd just give up and I don't want that to happen to me so I'd rather wait for two years maybe three for a series to finish than end up not finishing the series as a whole.
So I guess you're thinking that what I'm doing is also waiting, I agree with that, but at least I wouldn't end up with a cliffhanger.
Here are some of the books that no matter how long the installment takes you'll still be eagerly waiting for it.
1. Kate Daniels by Ilona Andrews
It's about Kate Daniels who is a mercenary and every book is a standalone but still features the same characters. Also the romance in this book slowly builds up so it does take some time before you really see some action.
2. Chicagoland Vampires by Chloe Neill
This series features Merit who was turned into a vampire not because she wanted to but because she will die if she wasn't turned into one. She's sarcastic, has a dry sense of humor and is not the kind of heroine who lets the hero do all the protecting.
3. Moon Called (Mercy Thompson #1) by Patricia Briggs
Mercedes "Mercy" Thompson is a mechanic, who also happens to be a walker and can transform into a coyote by will. She also sarcastic, stands up for herself and has a dry sense of humor.
