    12 Best Standalone Books: These Stories Stand On Their Own

    Sometimes, you don’t want to read a miniseries.

    You don’t want to get invested in a TV series.

    Sometimes, like when you watch a movie, all you want is a one and done.

    Before I read a book, I don’t like knowing if there is a cliffhanger or if someone dies or even if the heroine ends up in a happily ever after.

    I don’t. Want. To know.

    As a No-Spoiler Activist, I believe in keeping most details about a book I’ve read to myself. As a Smut Book Enthusiast and High-Powered Professional Book Recommender, you would think I’d find it necessary to divulge things about a book in order to properly promote it as one to read.

    Seeing as I’m a professional, it’s my job to make sure you don’t know too much before you start reading. I give you just enough to wet your whistle, pique your interest, and make you want to read what I suggest.

    One of the most-often asked questions is whether or not a book is a standalone, if it has a cliffhanger, or if it’s part of a series. On every book recommendation page, underneath the pretty image of the book’s cover, is a list of specifications about the book. That is where you’ll find details like genre, series, and smuttiness (Heat Rating).

    As a favor to you and to my future self to explain all of this the next time I’m asked which standalone books I recommend, here is a list of books that stand alone as singular reads.
