This week's question is...

Change the Plot. If you could, what book would you change the ending or a plot thread? Go ahead and do it...change it. 
If I had been asked this question right after I finished Gone Girl I may have chosen it. I thought I hated the ending but then the more I thought about it the more I kind of thought it was genius. A messed up story and two messed up characters should rightfully have a messed up ending. In the end I decided that I actual love how it played out and had to go back and change my rating on the book.

The one book that comes to mind that I hated the ending to was My Sister's Keeper by Jody Picoult. Both Terri and I threw the book across the room when we finished it. I would change it to the same as the movie ending. Although it was still sad, it was an ending that I could live with. What book would you change?

That is our Feature and Follow Friday for this week! Comment down below if you're a new follower of ours with a link to your blog and we will make sure to follow you back. You can follow us via gfc, bloglovin, facebook and twitter.

    I definitely preferred the movie ending over the book ending in "My Sister's Keeper." That NEVER happens for me. I was actually just talking to my best friend about this the other day, funnily enough.

    Here's my Follow Friday post if you'd like to check it out.

  3. I haven't read the book neither have I watched the movie so I just scrolled down your post because I am very eager to read it and don't want to read any spoilers.
    But I followed you :)

  4. Never read that book but have heard about it. Sounds like the book ended on a tearjerker, right?

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. I think it was meant to end as a tearjerker but in my case it just made me mad. It really ruined the entire book for me.

  5. I haven't read either of these, but they're both on my "to read" shelf. I'm anxious to see what I think of them.

    I had mixed feelings about My Sister's Keeper too. Initiatelly, I hated the ending and thought the Hollywood ending definitely made more sense and felt better. I still think that but I think over the years, the novel's ending kind of grew on me. I still don't like it but I don't hate it with as much intensity as I did before.

  12. I've seen the movie but not read the book and I'm curious now as to how the book ended as I guess I'd just presumed they were the same.... dumb huh?

  13. I haven't read that book, but there have been a few times when I wanted to throw a book across the room because the ending destroyed the whole plot.

  14. Great choice! This is one of the few where I agree that the movie ending was better than the book.


  15. I wanted to read Gone Girl but a lot of bloggers hated the ending (plus kinda spoiled it for me), so I opted out.
    THanks for stopping by My FF
