Boys in our Books Friday Question of the Week!
Each week we’ll ask a question about your reading experience. Our review team will give our answers and we encourage you to join in and comment with your answers as well! Let’s talk about BOOKS! :)
A series that explores the same couple – ICoS, The Administration, Captive Prince, Channeling Morpheus, etc. I like my series like my relationships – monogamous.
I prefer series that stick with the same couple. I love tagging along as their relationship deepens and grows. I get soo attached, I actually have a hard time letting go!
Hmmm, it’s a tough one. If a series stick with the same couple, it really needs to get REALLY strong, in terms of issues that they have to face and I prefer it has some sort of time limit on the books. Because most often then not, I get bored and think that it’s ‘too much’. I mean, if the author can actually have a strong arc and idea about what the couple will progress, I’m good with same couple. Or maybe if it’s paranormal/urban fantasy where there are external issues too. But if it’s contemporary, I prefer to go with different couple. Because I can’t see myself going with same couple for so many books!!
I love a series about the same couple…I love the JOURNEY and watching them grow deeper in love. Just having them pop by for drinks in some new couple’s book is not enough for me!!!!
If the couple has great chemistry, then I love reading multiple books with the same pairing. That’s definitely my preference over many pairings over a series. There are a few series, like JL Langley’s Sci-Regency or Charlie Cochet’s THIRDS where I’m looking forward to later books that focus on couples that were previously in development or in the background, but overall, multi-book series with one couple are my fave.
Either or is good for me. I tend to get bored with series, even if I like that couple, so mixing it up is nice. I adore the special gifts of previous characters showing up in other books/series though. With the same author or even when a favorite couple from *cough* Cut & Run *cough* showed up in The Flesh Cartel.
