So, today I was thinking about cliffhangers and whether or not their good. Or do books that don't have them are better or not.
Why I like cliffhangers is when done well (believe it or not authors can mess up cliffhangers) they make you excited for the next book. Good ones can make you need the next book by just thinking of the ending. Like Everbound by Brodi Ashton, everytime I think about that ending I get really nervous and need to read the next one. And that ending is what made me love this whole series.
However, if cliffhangers are in every book in lets say a five book series then they just get old. You just get sick and tired of them. They could ever ruin the series, you no longer care if some one dies.
Books that don't have cliffhangers, I like a little better then cliffhanger endings I like them better, because the books feel separate and their own, but are still connect with each other. They feel like different books, unlike series that end in cliffhangers that feel like one huge book that are separated into smaller books. If that made any sense to you. I just like them better.
I like series that don't have cliffhangers better even though cliffhangers have the ability to make you obsessed with the series until the next book comes out. I would like best to have a series with most of the endings not cliffhangers and one or two of the books with cliffhangers, just to get you a little obsessed.
Note to authors, please don't end your series on a cliffhanger. I read a last book in a series that ended on a cliffhanger, not a life or death cliffhanger, but still one non the less. I think the author was trying to go for a mysterious ending, but it didn't work out. That completely ruined the series for me.
Tell me in the comments what you prefer. Cliffhangers, or not
