I’ve got to say, before today I haven’t really given much though to companion novels. If they’re something interesting, I usually read them. For instance, the Anna and the French Kiss series is three companion novels. And while I haven’t read all three (I still need to read Isla and the Happily Ever After) I did really enjoy Lola and the Boy Next Door, even though it wasn’t as good as the first. To me, it usually depends on how good I thought the first book was. Companion novels are not usual my favorite, actually. Mainly, because I get so attached to the first group of characters in the first novel, that seeming them as secondary characters annoys me.
What do you guys think? Series or companion novels?
