....even the ones I love. Especially the ones I love.
I have to re-read previous 2-3-4-5-6-7-8 books to be able to fully enjoy the latest installment. It's beyond frustrating. I understand that it saves authors world building and character development, but it's maddening to the readers. No matter how much I love Scarlet and the White Wolf, for example, I do not! - I know, shocking - want to re-read first 4 books when the 5th is out. Because guess what, I have already read Book One three times.
