Forgotten Sequals & Short Novels
Have you ever read a book and liked it so much and when the author promises that there will be a sequal to it you are all excited and and cannot wait to read what will happen next. You wait on pins and needle for the book to come out and it takes for ever and when it does come you either not interested in it or you have to re-read the first book to figure what the second, third or even the fourth book is talking about. Weill that happens to me a lot, I find that if I wait toooooo long for a sequel to come out I am not interested in the book at all. however if the book rocked my world and makes me thing then I have no problem re-reading it over until the second part of the books comes out.
I find that I don't like reading short novels or novella's it is my experience that I read at least 3 or 4 books in one day depending on how much words are there. If they are over 50,000-90,000 words I can read that book in one day and then give another book a start. But if a book is under 30,000 words I read that in an hour. Granted some of those books are awesome and they get to point with out having you guessing what is the point or what will happen next. However I like guessing I get excited when I have to figure what is going to happen next or how will they realize that they are in love with each other or hoe long will it take the characters to tell each other that they are in love with each. I'm not going to stop reading my short novels but i wish they had a little more meat to the bone.
