This week's question/activity:

Change the plot. If you could, what book would you change the ending or the plot thread? Go ahead and do it... change it. 

Oh, man. I don't know. Maybe I'm weird (okay, we know I am), but I really typically don't think about what I would do differently if I were the author. There might be things I'd never consider and would definitely leave out even if I had (read: Twilight baby-love... *shudder*). Sometimes I wonder if epilogues are completely necessary (Hunger Games, Harry Potter), but then I think it's nice to know what happens in the future. And you know you're not getting anymore... it's a definite. So, really... I can't think of any I'd definitely change or alter in any way. :(

What about you?


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog! Following on GFC! :)

  2. I kind of feel the same way, and I didn't participate this week. First of all, I'm not a writer -- well, not a fiction writer. I have great respect for authors, so even if I don't like the ending, I never think about how I think it should have ended.

    Happy weekend!

    1. Exactly! It's not my story to change... plus, I don't think I've ever been completely disappointed that I thought I would've done it differently.

  3. Hopping through. I do have somethings I wish were different but I know what you mean. I did particularly love the epilogue in Harry Potter.

    1. I did enjoy it as well. I liked seeing how they all turned out. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  4. I'm also usually pretty happy with authors' decisions on how to end books, unless I just don't like the book at all - then I'd probably change a lot :)

  5. Hopping through. I wrote the answer to this week's FF on the epilogue of Mockingjay so I know exactly how you feel!

    1. Ah, yes. That is seeming to be a common one. :)

      Thanks for stopping by.


  6. Hi there, following thru from Parajunkie's FF, and now following you via GFC & Google+. You can find me at BookShelves Of Dreams

  7. For the most part, I can do with out epilogues. They usually leave me thinking of the book in a different light - which is not good. I'm content with a regular ending and not knowing how life panned out for the characters. I can't think of one book where an extended look at their future lives really provided closure. It usually raised more questions.


Thank you so much for taking your time to share your thoughts! I try to respond to everyone. :)
