Amy J RAREtte4Life If you need a stand alone and are tired of the cliffys. Something for everyone..smut, ya, na! All genre's, stand alone other character's pov's withstanding, next books are different characters.


Amy J RAREtte4Life i hope you all found a couple books to read!


Amy J RAREtte4Life oh and good news for you accidentally on purpose fans, ld davis is actually working on a sequel moving forward

Fab news, and a good list too, thanks :-)


Hazel *Craves the Angst Reviews* LOVE this list! So many great books I've read and so many I want to read! ;)

★Ruth★ Great list Amy , I am tired of all the cliffy's lately :(


message 7: by Janice (new)

Janice Love this list -I'm just starting another series, and its expensive - love to find some "stand alone's" thank you


Amy J RAREtte4Life me too...the cliffy's are starting to piss me off. i can never remember all the details


message 9: by Susan (new)

Susan great list! thanks!


message 10: by Savy (new)

Savy Thank you for the list! Highly needed these days with the cliff hanger trend! ...which I'm not always a fan of!

i know its so irritating


message 12: by Lucy Qhuay (new)

Lucy Qhuay What is so difficult to understand in 'stand alones'? I see a lot of books that belong to series. --'


Amy J RAREtte4Life i'm ok with them if the series is about other books but i often try to find a stand alone so i don't have to worry about a cliffy


message 14: by Prpages (new)

Prpages Angelfall by Susan Ee is not a stand alone but actually the first in a series! :)

I am also tired of them.

They are part of series that may have another POV character in the next book but that continues the story.

Beautiful Disaster has another POV and ..."


The name of the list is
TRUE stand alone books worth reading (other character pov's & spin off characters withstanding)

can't prevent others from voting, keep in mind pov's and novella spin offs aren't really a continuation of the story. side character spin offs may have the previous characters involved moving forward but they are not prevalent to the story


message 17: by Lane (new)

Lane Parker ...most of these books are part of a series...


message 18: by Christine (new)

Christine Lane wrote: "...most of these books are part of a series..." I wondered about that, too, Lane, after pursuing the list. I rarely read series, so appreciated one of my Goodreads friends recommending this list. I wonder if people recommending find these particular books qualify as stand-alones because they don't have cliff-hanger endings. And they don't need another book (like in trilogies) to complete the over-arching story arc?
