This Week's Question:
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!)

My Answer:
Well, today is the 3rd day of Eid-ul-Fitr, so our holidays will be over soon and I'll getting back to school. We're already having lots of rains and thunderstorms so I'm looking forward to a cool weather, warm clothes, chicken soups, coffee,and reading cozy mysteries. Although I love watching the rain pelting down through my window or balcony, if it gets a little sunny for a while I'll love it too.

This Week's Question:

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


My Answer:

Okay, this is going to be a spoiler fest, I'm playing safe by not picking out any particular book. Often it happens that the book character you begin to love, good or bad, dies at the end or suffers a miserable fate. So I'll change the ending of all the books and save my favorite character's life. What say you?

  1. Hopping through. I like saving characters' lives too. Although sometimes I understand why they died.

  3. I agree with you 100%. I can think of so many beloved characters that have died needlessly and want them all to come back!

  5. Oh man, it is the worst feeling ever when a character you have grown to love either dies or suffers. I hate those kinds of books! I want everyone to just be happy!

  7. Good call on avoiding answering this week's Follow Friday question. I've read many an answer and they've indeed been spoiler fests. Aargh!

  9. This week’s question is perfect for Labor Day weekend with the “official” end of summer and all.

    I’m all about fall! I love all four seasons and I’m sorry to see summer go (I hope to get in a few more swims in my pool) but I’m also amped up for Autumn.

    Why?

    For most of the same reasons we all like autumn – fall foods, Halloween, the chill in the air, changing leaves and candy corn. But I’ve got a scary slant to why I’m angling for autumn. Hop on over to my book blog at http://www.howardsherman.net to read all about the murder, mayhem, seriously spooky stuff and even some BSP!

    Happy Labor Day Weekend!

  11. 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!

  17. Fall has always been my favourite season but this year it is extra special because my oldest daughter starts school! I'm looking forward to sewing again and curling up under a handmade quilt with a great book!
