Top Ten Tuesday: Books We Would Like to Change the Endings To

Today for the freebie Top Ten Tuesday we are listing the top ten books we would like to change the ending to. As always cheers to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting TTT! Happy 4-day week!

Grad Student
1. The Death Cure (the third Maze Runner by James Dashner). The first two books were epic!  I was so frustrated that this book ran out of steam.
2. The Girl of Fire and Thorns. Hummmmbbeeerrtooo nooooooooo.
3. Beautiful Creatures and Twisted by Gena Showalker.. Any time of restarting of a story/amnesia/wake up and its all been a dream is a waste of time.

Crazy Camper
3a. Beautiful Creatures- LENA CHOOSE A SIDE. IT IS YOUR CHOICE. This is worth repeating.
4. Reckoning by Lili St. Crow. I refuse to believe this is how Dru and Graves leave their friendship at the end of the Strange Angels series. I am ignoring it.
5. The Book Thief- I wish (spoiler retracted) could have (spoiler retracted) and that Liesel could have kissed him.
6.  Devoured- there was ZERO need for the human heart consumption in this book. gross.
7. Books 2 onward of the Fallen series by Lauren Kate.  This one just went bat shit crazy on the reader, as I think we can all agree.

Goosie Mama
8. Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer. Actually I wish I could have changed about 99% of these books, but for some reason I was feeling masochistic that month and read them all. Sad face.
9. Swamplandia by Karen Russel- thinking about that book still sends shivers down my spine. Bait and switch at its worst!
10. Loved Book 2 of the Vampire Journals series - you cannot fall in love in 3 hours, I'm sorry - what you're selling, Morgan Rice, I am just not buying. Did love the first one though (Turned)
11. Hana (a Delirium Story or Delirium #1.5) by Lauren Oliver - this was definitely a precursor to Pandemonium and Requiem, but I just cannot handle the ending (which I won't ruin for you), but it gave me the sads. Lena + Hana 4ever!

  1. I've never wanted to change the endings to books, but I have shaken my head at a few endings and thought "what the heck was the writer thinking?!" Not how I wanted this story to end!

    And yes... the Fallen series just got crazypants after book 2. CUHrazy!

  2. Aww, I think the only endings I've wanted to change is Requiem by Lauren Oliver and Harry Potter... because I didn't want it to end at all! haha
    My TTT :)

  3. Beautiful Creatures --- YES! The ending did feel like a bit of a cop-out. You mean to tell me we have to wait a whole other year to find out if she's light or dark!? C'MON FOLKS! PICK A SIDE! And yes to Twilight (I got sucked in too, so don't worry). At least in Breaking Dawn (the movie) we got to see some sort of battlerific action. And all of The Maze Runner series was sort of a let down for me, but the ending was indeed the most frustrating bit of them all.


Comments? Heck ya!
