Hop Day!




So Follow my Blog Friday is a meme held by Parajunkee and it's where you answer the weekly question and then link yourself and you go and check out other blogs of your interest.

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

To be spoiler free, I would change the end of many books! One of my priorities would be Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. I didn't like how rushed the ending felt.


Book Blogger HopBook Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy For Books made to help showcase your blog to other bloggers out there with the same interests!

What are you most looking forward to this fall/autumn season – A particular book release? Halloween? The leaves changing color? Cooler temperatures? A vacation? (If your next season is other than fall/autumn, tell us about it and what you are most looking forward to in your part of the world!)

There are so many awesome books coming up in the fall! I cannot wait for so many of them. Plus I can't wait to see the leaves change colour and to have many hours of reading.



TGIF is a meme held over at GReads

Making a Difference: Which book(s) would you put in the hands of
today's teenagers in hopes of making a difference in their lives?

I would give any teen Thirteen Reasons Why. I'm currently reading this book and I think it really makes a difference as to considering multiple sides of a story or how your actions can hurt another hugely.

  1. Old follower stopping by. I would change the ending of many books too, it's something about the characters. My Hop

  2. YES! I'd change the ending of Mockingjay, too. It seemed like a cop-out and as if the author was in a hurry to wrap everything up.

  11. Hopping through. I felt the same way about Mockingjay. Quite disappointing.

  12. 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!

  14. Hi! New follower stopping by from the book blogger hop!

    Totally agree about Mockingjay's ending. It was such a disappointment overall, in my opinion.

    Love your blog!
