To stand alone is a difficult thing to do, even if you happen to be a book. Besides the fact they don’t have any legs, books without a posse of sequels, prequels and threequels often get tragically underrated. While they might not have hoards of screaming fans like Twilight, or Percy Jackson’s never ending adventures, these brave novels can be picked up and read without a worry; you don’t need to know anything before hand, and they come to true conclusions in the end. Yet these books still leave room to imagine. Without a doubt, they most definitely deserve some time in the lime light.
