I enjoy sequels on occasion when I’m engaged with a story and want to know what comes next for a character. After receiving feedback on my debut historical fiction during a late draft stage, I edited the last half to set the story up for a sequel. I hope I can write a follow-up which is as compelling as the first. Beyond two books, however, I find my time is limited and I’d rather move on to another character, time, and place. Other readers, however, love series. When the pandemic began in March 2020, many readers searched for a series to lose themselves in for days and months. Through another poll, I compiled suggestions from other avid readers.
Without a doubt, the overall #1 choice is the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. To broaden the suggestion list, I challenged readers to come up with their next top favorites.
- Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (also an excellent TV series)
