Follow Friday #14

Hi, guys!

For those who don't know, Follow Friday is a blog hop hosted by the super-duper awesome Parajunkee & Alison Can Read! It's a great way to meet new people and expand your list of friends over Blogger, and it's really easy to join, too! :)


All you have to do is:
  1. (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read)
  2. (Required) Follow the featured blogger of the week. (Once Upon A Prologue)
  3. Put your blog name and URL in the Linky thing. 
  4. Grab the the button up there and place it in a post (so people can say hi in the comments!).
  5. Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just only a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs! Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "HI!"
  6. If someone comments and follows you, share the love! Follow them back ;)
  7. If you're new to the Follow Friday hop, comment and let Parajunkee & Alison know, so they can stop by and check out your blog!
Q: If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? Why and to what?

A: This is a really hard question! Even though there are times where I really want to change a character's bad decision (or when I want the heroine to end up with the other guy in a love triangle), I can't really think of a book where an ending bugged me enough that I'd want to completely change it.

But one thing that makes me really anxious is a cliffhanger ending. Because then we have to wait so long for the next book to come out, and it always feels like a lifetime!

What about you? :) 

HAPPY FOLLOW FRIDAY!

  2. Hopping through. Cliffhangers are good and bad. Good b/c they're exciting but bad for the reason you mentioned.

  6. I have a love/hate relationship with cliffhanger endings. On the one end I can understand why authors do it. After all, they want you to read the next book but on the other hand... they're killer!!

  11. Good answer! No matter how much you would want to change an ending, you really can't. I agree with you on the cliffhanger ordeal! Haha! Feel free to check out my FF here. Returning follower!

  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!

  13. I absolutely abhor and love cliff hangers at the same time! I hate having to wait, yet they keep me hooked on a series!

  14. Cliffhangers drive me crazy too! Especially when I read the book right when it releases (or before). It's almost painful waiting.

  16. For me it depends on the story if I love or hate a cliff-hanger ending!

    Congrats on 300 followers, girl, and thanks for visiting my blog!
