Just Some Bibliophilic Things #1 | 19/09/20

Hey guys! Welcome to my first JSBT post! It is a weekly meme that takes place every Saturday here, on my blog. For all the details , click here.

Question of the week: How many books do you think should there be in one series? Which book series is your favourite in that particular format?

So, according to me three to five books is the perfect number of books in the series. I find duologies to be really short and end up wanting more of the characters. Book series with more than five books are too long [Harry Potter is an exception]. I don’t really end up enjoying them.

My favourite book series in the trilogy format is Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard. My favourite book in the category of pentalogies is The Selection [although this might change in October, the final book of the Trials of Apollo is going to come out. Yay!]

According to the poll that I kept on my Instagram account, most people seem to think that 3-5 is the ideal number of books in a series. What do you think?

So, that’s my answer for the question! What’s yours? Leave an answer in the comments or let me know the link of your blog post!!

Next week’s question: Organized bookshelves or outrageous bookshelves? If outrageous, then do you feel like organizing them but are too lazy to do so?

  1. I think whoever invented the trilogy should be commended. It’s the perfect number. I’ve never actually read any duologies, but a series has to be really good if it’s longer than 3, maybe 4 if I really like it, books. Then again, I do like a series that’s longer, but each book can be read as a standalone, like Agatha Christie mysteries or Her Royal Spyness. But if we’re talking overarching storylines, 3 is definitely my preferred choice.
