FOLLOW FRIDAY


Follow Friday is a meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alisoncanread.  This week's feature is Lisa Loves Literature  and Once Upon a Prologue, and if I wasn't already following both of these ladies, I'd do it again.  Go check each of them out!

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

Let me just say that I agree with EVERYTHING Parajunkee said on her blog and would've probably preferred her ending to the tragic letdown that was Breaking Dawn.  *Spoilers* to follow, so if you haven't read the final book in the Twilight saga DON'T do it!  Stop with Eclipse (especially if you're Team Jacob) you may want to stop reading here.

*Begin Spoilerfest: First, a white wedding straight out of the pages of fanfiction (and not even the best fanfiction b/c some of it is actually pretty good).

Second, a pregnant Bella who's so out of character she seems unconcerned about being implanted with Edward's demon seed.

Third, creepy, creepy baby Nessy (what the heck with that name?  Really Stephenie, what??) who everyone falls instantly in love with.

Fourth, my poor, poor Jacob imprinting on creepy baby--THIS was the most spectacular failing of the book imo :(  For shame, Meyer, for shame.

And lastly (b/c I have decided to limit myself to five; don't want this to turn into anymore of a rant than it already is), NO FIGHT SCENE!  I mean, really, all that build up with the Volturi, all the tension, and then they show up and...leave???  The lack of action/ability to deliver the promised battle to the death was a very, very big letdown.

Don't know how I would've ended it, but definitely with some kind of fight at the end.  Sorry, I really loved the series--like loved it--and then the fourth book came out and...yeah :(  I pretty much wanted everything that happened to happen, but I was disappointed in HOW it all went down.

Note: I NEVER wanted Jacob to turn into a cradle robber.  Just ew.

So, what's yours?

  2. Oh Breaking Dawn. What a war it was for me to finish that book! It was just altogether bad. Especially with Jacob imprinting on a baby. Let alone how gross the baby birthing scene was. New follower!

  5. The ending of Breaking Dawn was definitely somewhat of a let-down. LOL I liked how you pointed the finger at Edward in your rant. I'm curious to see how they're going to pull it off in the movie.

  10. Being the maverick that I am, I penciled in my own addition to this week’s Follow Friday question and then answered it.

    Change the ending of a book? No way, no how.

    From the perspective of a reader – it never even dawned on me. As a writer I find the notion sacrilegious.

    Wait! I can explain! Follow me back to my blog for all the verbosity – http://www.howardsherman.net

    Happy Labor Day Weekend!

  13. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I agree with your last point about Breaking Dawn, but don't think the rest is as bad. But a lot more people feel like you than me on this blog hop.
