Follow My Blog Friday - Changing Endings

Follow Friday is sponsored by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. And this week the Featured blogger on Parajunkee is Lisa Loves Literature Over on Alison Can Read the featured blogger is Once Upon a Prologue. This week's question is:

If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? Why and to what?

I do not think I really want to change an ending. I like the endings to be as the author sees them. It is not to say I am always happy with them, (for example Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer was settled way too easy peasey for my taste and Loser's Town by Daniel Depp felt like the ending was rushed). I like to write my own endings even when I like the ending just because I like to think about what would happen if it went this way or that way. I think the endings and imagining them in different ways is part of the fun of reading a book. Everyone sees differently - even an awesome book, (or series), is not going to end in a way that pleases everyone who reads it.

Breaking Dawn (Twilight, #4)   Loser's Town: A David Spandau Novel

Hopping through. I'm with you on Breaking Dawn. I would have liked a fight. But I wouldn't have wanted anyone to die.

Thank you for visiting/following my blog. I'm returning the favor. :)

I also make up my own endings. I have my own personal canon for Breaking Dawn. *grins*

Hmm, I never thought about the fact that not everyone will like an ending... even though I guess that is kind of obvious. I just think about whether I liked it or not! Great answer (:

Good thoughts. I have thought of re-writing endings I don't like, but haven't actually sat down to do it yet! I just might start! ... though I seem to get on to the next read instead.

I wouldn't want to change the ending either, it just doesn't seem right. Hope you had a great weekend.

Sorry it took me so long to come by and comment. This weekend was crazy!

Wow. I really like your insight. I think I need to start writing down some of the endings to series. It would be fun to explore.
