I've found so many great new-to-me book blogs while participating in Feature and Follow Friday, also known as Follow My Book Blog Friday, hosted by Parajunkee's View and Allison Can Read, that I decided to join the fun again today.
Q. If you could change the ending of any book (or series),
which book would you choose? Why and to what?
This is a tough one. A majority of the books I read are romance novels. And I love the happily ever after endings they pretty much guarantee, so changing any of the endings would rob me of that. I do recall reading a historical romance several years ago -- for some reason the title and author are eluding me -- which I thought could have had a great tragic ending. I wouldn't have wanted to give up the happy one it provided. But, if it were a DVD, I would've loved to see an alternate ending included. :-)
The plot was reminiscent of Ladyhawke. If you haven't seen that movie, the hero and heroine are cursed. The hero takes the form of a wolf from dusk until dawn and the heroine takes the form of a hawk from dawn until dusk. So, though they love each other, the two can never be together as a man and a woman. In the romance novel I mentioned, a similar curse threatened to keep the hero and heroine apart. The hero was a wolf, and the heroine was a deer. The author did such a good job of making it seem impossible for the hero and heroine to ever be together as a man and a woman that I was almost (notice I said almost) disappointed when all was resolved in the last couple of pages and the two ultimately found their happily ever after. It would have been such a great tragic romance.
But, as I said, I'm a sucker for a happy ending. I did enjoy the book. (I really wish I could remember the title, because now I want to go back and reread it.) But I can appreciate tragedies, too. :-)
What about you? Any endings you would like to change?
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
