Follow Friday #8

Feature and Follow Friday is a blog hop put together by two hosts:  Parajunkee and Alison Can Read as a way to help bloggers become aware of other blogs and bloggers. It's a great way to make new blogger friends.

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

Wow, what a way to make me think. The only book I can think of is Breaking Dawn. When I read it I had to put it down several times because it just made me so angry! For me, it just felt so fake and contrived. Breaking Dawn felt like a completely different book from the others in the series and it just didn't seem to mesh well with the others. I felt like I was reading a sci-fi/fantasy, rather than a vampire love story.

 If I could change it, I would just like it to be more like the first three books. I don't want Bella to get preggers and pop out a muntant hybrid baby that grows super fast and is mated to Jacob. (Gag!) If you remove all of that I would like it so much more.

  2. Ya, this is a popular answer for good reason...I really disliked Twilight in general and Breaking Dawn in particular.

  3. Poor Breaking Dawn. It really seems to be taking a beating as the answer to this week's question. Although, I do understand why!

  5. I hated Breaking Dawn too. It was just a giant mess of a book.

    New follower :D


  6. LoL I always thought people loved the ~perfect ending~ to Twilight but I guess not!

    New follower!

  7. LOL Love the way you worded that! I did think it was an odd book, I don't know why, at the time I just went with the flow, I didn't really think about how different it was from the other books until way later.. I did think it was such a weird way to end the series LOL Not the way I imagined at first, that's for sure! The imprinting is what was the weirdest for me..

    Following you :)

  8. Thanks for stopping by :) And I agree! Everyone is saying Breaking Dawn haha, no one liked the ending. Forserious, Bella's baby sucked.

  9. So many people are saying Breaking Dawn! I admit I'm not a fan of the Twilight books full stop - but I never expected so many people to want to change the ending.

    I'm a new follower (Happy FF!)

  16. 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 –

    Happy Labor Day Weekend!

  17. Breaking Dawn is a popular pick. I could stomach the ending but I would definitely tweak some of the story.

  18. 'Mutant hybrid baby'! *laughing hysterically* Love it! Totally agree though. Big let down!

  19. Breaking Dawn and Mocking Jay have been two of the most popular titles I've seen for this FF posts :) love your blog and Happy Friday! am now a follower:)

  20. Hi, Danielle! I haven't read Breaking Dawn, but a LOT of people seemed to really dislike the ending. It kinda makes me wonder what would have happened in the next book. Wasn't there supposed to be another one?

    Have a great weekend!
