I'm going to say it once:
I AM SO SICK OF TRILOGIES.I want to read more about a world I love but the number 3 is like the freaking 666 of the YA literature.
|RUN SAM! IT'S ANOTHER TRILOGY!|
Remember last year when all the New Adult books consisted of the same plot aka: girl and boy with rough past meet and lick each others wounds but don't want attachments? I read one, then another and by the third I couldn't even get past the synopsis. Same story.
It's such a boring:
I'm saying all this as a person who's read mainly trilogies, but how many of them have I finished? So how effective is the ploy besides leaching money off readers? The formula gets old. It's time to break the mold, show us some great big standalones and some nice duologies. The number 3 shouldn't be our standard. There should be no standard. Each story is unique and its size should be too.
