Blog Hops: Alternate Ending

Today's Follow Friday question over at Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read is:

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

First of all, if you are a fan of zombies, you really need to read The Rising. It's excellent.

The Rising is also the only book that I've thrown when I was done reading it. The ending was very abrupt and very unresolved, but it was the first book in the series and it was actually so good I still highly recommend it despite the ending!

Are you a zombie fan?



Book Blogger HopJennifer over at Crazy For Books asks:

“What are you most looking forward to this fall/autumn season – A particular book release? Halloween? The leaves changing color? Cooler temperatures? A vacation?

Autumn is my favorite time of the year - especially October.  I LOVE Halloween.  We also go to the Texas Renaissance Festival every year in October.  I even had my wedding on Halloween weekend so now I have my anniversary to celebrate, too.

I love when the weather starts to change and you can actually smell it in the air.  It's the single best signal of the awesome things to come.

Happy September!!

  4. Hey there,
    I'm not a huge zombie fan (but that's probably b/c I haven't read that many books about them :)) I really loved Rot and Ruin, though, by Johnathan Mayberry. It was great, and he's got another one (Dust and Decay) coming out soon, so I think I'm gradually making my way into the zombie culture lol! Thanks for hopping by my blog, and I love the smell of autumn as well :)

  9. I love all kinds of paranormal, apart form zombies - they are too creepy. We don't celebrate Halloween, but I love autumn for its colours.

    Thanks for stopping by and following, I'm doing the same:)

    Have a great weekend!

  10. 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!

  12. I'm not sure how I feel about zombies...I actually haven't read any books involving them. I think I've seen Resident Evil too many times and out of all the scaries they are the scariest to me! All that brain eating and not feeling pain.

    Thanks for stopping by. I am following you in return. Have a great weekend.

  15. I love a good zombie story...emphasis on the good, though...A Forest of Hands & Teeth was excellent, with evil creepy zombies but enough smart stuff to balance it out. :)

    Unfortunately, I despise cliffhangers! Hmm. What a dilemma! :)

    Thanks for the FF visit! New follower.
