Tell Me Something Tuesday #9

Tell me Something Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Cambria Hebert. Every week we get to answer to a new question.

This week's question:
Do you like stand alone books - why or why not? What is the last stand alone title that you read?

My answer:
Oh, the love I have for a good stand alone story and how hard they are to find. Somedays I am dying to just pick up a book and know that when I am done reading it, it would be the end of a story. Don't get me wrong I love series, usually my favorite books are series books, and that's probably because you get more attach to worlds and characters when you read a lot of books about them, but sometimes a girl needs closure not a cliffhanger.

The last stand alone book I read was Blackwood by Gwenda Bond, unfortunatelly I didn't like it that much.
Now for some all time favorite stand alones.

I know that Sisters Red and Dark Secrets are supposed to be in series but the books of the series are completely about other characters, so they are like stand alones.

What are some of your favorite stand alones?


  1. Hey! I agree with you that sometimes a girl wants closure and not a cliffhanger, LOL! I guess that books in a series but about different characters are like stand alones. I really like that idea a lot.
    I haven't read any of the books above but I have seen Every other day and Sisters Red around. I will have to check them out! :)

  2. Some great titles up there that I need to check put! I agree good stand alones are becoming harder to come by! Happy Tuesday!

  3. Ooooh, I like the look of The Vanishing Game and Every Other Day...

    I love stand alone titles!....Shame about your last one read though.... It's the fun of reading though, finding the good ones and the bad ones we can complain about! ;0)
