For the most part I read standalones. I want to like series, but I always either run in to a problem where I don’t have time read the whole series at once or the next book isn’t out yet and I have to wait a long time and I don’t remember what happened in the previous books by the time I get to the next book in the series. Then I am forever rereading book one to be able to read book two and then rereading book one and two to read book three and so on. Too much wasted time in my opinion when I could just read a new standalone and have another full story to love and enjoy.
The only series I can think of that I read and enjoyed were read in quick succession. Either back to back or within a month of each other at the longest. I keep wanting to like series though because you get so many more pages to spend with characters that you (hopefully) love. I asked in a book group on Facebook for suggestions for completed book series. A few I owned, a couple I purchased. These are series I own physically, have all of the books in the series (that goodreads shows as published or planned to be published), and I haven’t read any of them yet.
