The Crazy Bookworm has started a Young Adult Blog hop. Clink the button above to add your link and find out about the hop.
This week the question is:
Have you ever read a stand alone novel that you wish had a sequel?
Stand alone novel? I can't remember the last time I read a stand alone novel. It seems that everything I read these days is a part of at least a trilogy. I think it is primarily because of the genres I read. I read a lot of paranormals and a lot of fantasy. All of them seem to have stories too big to be contained in one book.
Most recently I have read Bloodlines by Richelle Mead which begins a new series and The Calling by Kelley Armstrong which is the second book in a trilogy. I did read A Long Way from You by Gwendolyn Heasley which I learned after I read it was a companion book to Where I Belong. I liked the characters and would like to know what happens next for them. It is not a burning need but just a sort of wistful wishing.
I am a school library/media specialist for a small school district in Southeast Minnesota.
I love reading adult, YA and Middle Grade paranormals, science fiction/fantasy, and mysteries. I am also a fan of adult romances and romantic suspense. I just love reading!
I maintain two book blogs. Ms. Martin Teaches Media is used to blather about the YA books I read. Inside of a Dog is my home for the adult books I read.
Beginning January 1, 2012, I will no longer be accepting self-published books for review.
If I accept your book, I will agree to read, review, and post the review prior to the book's publication date only if I receive the book a minimum of 21 days before the book is published. Books arriving later than that will be reviewed as they fit into my review schedule.
I prefer books in these genres: paranormal romance, urban fantasy, mystery, science fiction, fantasy and romance.
I will be limiting myself to three adult books and three young adult books per month for review. I will accept either print books or ebooks formatted for my Kindle.
Please contact me with any questions. I am not able to respond to every request but will respond if I am interested in reading the book.
