I just finished reading The Strain by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan.  Being a vampire story, I was compelled to buy it as soon as I saw it on the shelf.  I really enjoyed the book  even though it was not what I was expecting.  My typical vampire reads have sexy men and hot steamy scenes.  This was completely the opposite.  In this story, the vampires are disgusting!!

The thing that bugged me about The Strain, is that I didn't realize it was part of a series.  I guess I didn't pay enough attention to this inside cover.  Half way through the book it hit me... great I'm gonna be left hanging again!

I have gotten way too interested in too many series!  It drives me crazy waiting for the next story to come out.  There is the Fever series -  it's the one that has me most on edge.  The Black Dagger Brotherhood  always keeps me in suspense wondering who's story is next.  I have many others that I am always waiting on.  So great... I just added another!!

Does it drive you absolutely nuts waiting on the next part of a series?  Do you like being left in suspense?

I hate cliffhanger endings in books.

I hate waiting for the next book in a series as well, but it is worth it most times. Like Tori, I hate cliffhangers in books as well as movies.

This is one of the reasons I love to find a series after it has been completely written. I can read them all back to back. No cliffhangers!!!

I enjoy a good cliffhanger. Lucky for me, I usually take so long to finish a book that by then the next one is out.
