I was super busy yesterday helping a good friend with her son’s 3rd birthday party, so I had to miss a day. But picking up where we left off, here’s day four in the 15 Day Blogger challenge. It’s hosted by “Good Books, Good Wine,” if you’d like to check it out.
Day 4: What’s the last book you flung across the room?
I have a complicated relationship with cliff – hangers. I love them, but only when I have the next book readily available. Otherwise, they get thrown. There’s nothing like waiting a year (or more!) to have major cliff – hangers resolved. For this very reason, I often try to read series that are at least mostly finished.
But what’s even worse than reading a cliff-hanger and having to wait is finishing a book that hasn’t been resolved, to discover that the publishers decided not to continue the series. This happened to me when I finished reading Blood Winter by Diana Pharaoh Francis.
This (Horngate Witches) has to be one of the best Urban Fantasy series I’ve read. It’s so original and imaginative; the action scenes are incredible and the descriptions are so detailed (and not for the weak stomached). And while there’s no major cliff-hangers at the end of Blood Winter the story is FAR from over. So when I finished reading it (already aware it was the last book in the series) that book got thrown, metaphorically at least… didn’t want to break my tablet on top of it!
