|my odd reading preferences get in the way again.

I was checking out reviews of The Tempering of Men, the sequel of A Companion to Wolves by Elizabeth Bear and Sarah Monette. I wasn't planning on buying the book anytime soon as it's only available in hardcover (and Kindle), but now I don't really care to read it. Why? Because this book switches POV to three different characters, none of whom is the POV character of the first book. I get really attached to main characters and have a hard time switching, which is one of the big reasons I can't get into those really huge epics since there are tons of POV characters and I just can't care enough to keep track of them all. I even lose interest in sequels that feature the next generation because I'm so attached to the first one, or spin-offs because I'd rather read more about the original people (unless I actually like the spin-off people enough to that I can take the original mains be side-lined, which does happen on occasion). I suppose in this case I'll just wait for the third book to come out and read them all at once, just to find out what happens. :P
