Enough with the Sequels!

I don't visit Goodreads very often, usually only when I am out of things to read and have no idea where to go next. As you can see, I don't write this blog very often either. However, I find myself compelled. Searching in vain for a thriller, science fiction, or even contemporary fiction title, I find that authors must either be running low on fresh ideas, or so in love with their characters that they can't bear to leave them. Not only is Hollywood addicted to sequela, but it seems that authors have been similarly infected. I love my characters, too, but enough is enough!
