I live in the world of series. Most of the books I read or listen to are in a series. Some series are only a few books, others are long series. The shortest series I’ve listened to is The Light by Aleatha Roming at two books. The longest series I’ve listened to is Anita Blake by Laurell K. Hamilton, which I stopped at 22 (though there are 25 books out now). However, there is a vast array of great stand-alone books out there. Not all books need to be part of a series to be amazing books. So I thought I would pay tribute to my favorite books that are singles.
I couldn’t put them in an order, so I just put them in alphabetical order of author’s last name (I know, I’m lame for not going all the way).
