“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!)”
Cooler weather most definitely. I'm beyond tired of having 105 degree weather everyday. So why do I continue to live in Texas? Because it's home. :) I'm not to big on Halloween I enjoy taking my nieces out trick or treating, but that's usually about it. I'll try and throw together some costume just because it's fun to play dress up. My friend is trying to get me to come up with a costume and go to parties with her, and I'm like if you want to throw a costume together then I'll go.  What she picked out for me. A zombie. No lie. I actually think that would be  interesting. As for what books I'm going to go with The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and Shattered Souls.

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

This is going to be a spoiler fest so try to write the title of the book as a dominant feature - and warn people about spoilers.

 I haven't read an enormous amount of books that I think need to be changed or would have liked to be changed. Then again I haven't finished a lot of the series I have started like Shiver, THG, Evernight, and so on you get the picture. The main ones I have finished I was content with the endings. I mean sure Twilight could have ended  differently. I would have actually preferred her to go with Jacob, but whatever.
Now I loved the way these books ended I wanted Rose to be happy with Dimitri, and be Lissa's gaurdian so I got my way on that, however I really did feel bad for Adrian I loved him and his snarky comments and attitude, and I wanted the best for him. I would have liked to known that he was going to find someone. Not be some bitter, sad Adrian. I guess that's what Bloodlines is for huh? By the way loved it finished it today.

You know I loved this series just as much as anyone, but to make them just grow up and have kids after being with them for what 7 years. I was a little disappointed. I suck at rational reasons as to why I didn't like the endings, but oh well.

  2. Hopping through. I'm so excited about the Bloodlines series. I loved the first one and I'm glad Adrian might have the chance to be happy.
    My Hop

  3. Agreed. The ending to the Harry Potter series was somewhat lacking. It could have benefited from a few extra chapters, or books!

  18. 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.


    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 to read all about the murder, mayhem, seriously spooky stuff and even some BSP!

    Happy Labor Day Weekend!

  21. Shattered Souls was my Shelf Candy pick last week. I am looking forward to some cool weather too. The south is eating me up. Shelf Candy Meme

  22. New follower hopping through! Great blog!!

    I totally agree about Harry Potter 7. I though the epilogue was just so corny. I mean, they all deserved their happy ending... but still. Though it did make for some hilarity in the movie, hahaha!

    VA's ending didn't bother me so much. I actually really liked it. But that's because I knew that there was going to be more Adrian in Bloodlines, and that he was getting promoted to main character status, so that made me happy :D

  23. Wow, That is hot! I live in Newfoundland and we hardly got a summer, so I'm pretty jealous!!



I love comments! Leave me one, and I will comment back either on here or on yours! So check back!

Happy Reading and Blogging, Ashley
