Unpopular opinion #2. Unnecessary series
Similar to the cliffhangers, I hate when stand-alones are made into series. I think the first example of this, for me at least, is the Hunger Games. Honestly, I think it could’ve been left as the first one. Don’t get me wrong, the rest were not bad. But I think leaving it would’ve been fine too.
Others along this vein include Divergent and Legend. I love Divergent and Legend. They were such interesting concepts and I honestly think the ending was fine. But then the authors had to go and add two more books. Granted, I haven’t read the rest of the Legend books and I haven’t read Allegiant, but I’ve heard mixed reviews, leaning towards the not-so-great side. It doesn’t really ruin the first book, but it makes it harder to want to read more of the author.
Idk maybe I’m just weird. Let me know what you think!
