  1. Hmmm... I would probably change the fact that at the end of Bloodrose all of the Guardians completely became wolves.

    It just bugged me because it was Calla's story and we never really got her ending.

    Anyways, thanks for the giveaway :)

  2. I would change Harry Potters ending so that he would ended up with Hermoine instead of Ginny.

  4. I would change the whole ending of The Lovey Bones. It was SUCH a great book until the whole 'taking over the body to say goodbye' thing.
    That just ruined the book for me! :(

  5. I would change the ending of Breaking Dawn and have an actual fight=)

  6. I agree with ansindt! I would have liked to see an epic fight.

  7. The end of Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma was the most heartbreaking for me. I don't know if I would chance it, because I don't think another ending would've worked for the book, but still, I cried a river...:(

  8. I'd change The Guardian's Wildchild by Feather Stone. Can I say the most epic of spoilers? The heroine died. She freaking died!! Gosh, you don't know how pissed I was when I read that part.-.- Haha, anyway, thanks for this giveaway!

  9. I want to read a series that ends each book in a satisfactory manner, so that if I don't read the next I'm okay. I'm reading more stand alones because of the frustration.

  10. I still think that Gone With the Wind is one of the most romantic novels ever written. I would love to change the ending so that Scarlett and Rhett get together.

    1. Ok, you totally have to read "Scarlett" by Alexandra Ripley - she did an amazing job of writing the sequel! The estate of Margaret Mitchell took like 100's of submissions of the first chapter and book synopsis & chose who would write it - it was SOOOO good!

  11. I would change the end of Harry Potter so that there wouldn't BE a 19 years later chapter. Call me crazy but I would also put Harry and Luna together :D

    ReplyDelete
  12. I would change the ending of Delirium so that there never would have been a book called Pandemonium. I won't read it because of the stupid love triangle that does NOT need to be in there!! (Pissed off about it) (A) So, yeah, I would change the ending of Delirium ;)
    Love, Carina

  14. I would change the ending of A CHILD CALLED "IT." Given how she tormented poor David(the author), his mother(or rather his monster) got off way too easy.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Omg. My first choice is Graceling. I haven't read Fire, and I know it actually fits pretty well and all of that stuff, but when you find out Po went blind..My heart broke! I was so upset. I'm not sure if Fire plays into it or anything as I haven't read so much as the description but..Po!!

  16. I would change The Deathly Hallows and take out that stupid epilogue.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Harry Potter ending. Ginny? You kidding me? I want Harry and Hermoine.
    And that epilogue was just... to much. A pricless book series, shouldnt end like that. With 2 pages of what happens in the next 20 years.. That deserves more pages and maybe a new book, i don't know. lol
    :)

  18. It might be a cheat, but I'd change almost the entire last book of the Harry Potter series. The brought-back-to-life saviour plot ending just seemed way too cheesy for such a good series.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Authors write endings for a reason, so none!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I would change For a Few Demons More by Kim Harrison so a certain someone didn't die. D:

    ReplyDelete
  21. I would leave Tonks and Remus alive at the end of Harry Potter!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would exercise cutting powers and delete the epilogue section of Harry Potter. Just cheesy and not necessary.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I would change the end of Breaking Dawn in the Twilight series. Other people probably liked it, but I really didn't. I guess I didn't like the whole last book in general.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I've noticed that no one's mentioned Mockingjay yet! Come on, people! I had an emotional meltdown when Prim died, so I would definitely change that. That part alone ruined the whole trilogy for me.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'd change the end of Breaking Dawn. I'd just end it at the end of Jacob's 'book', because what comes after that is a completely different story, like a spin-off series or something.
    Or at least I'd have more fights and victims in the third part.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'd cut not only the end of Breaking Dawn but the whole book!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I didn't like the ending to Mockingjay since it felt awkward since Katniss said that she didn't want kids but then BAM she had two kids :[

  28. I would change the end to Mockingjay, because it was really somewhat awkward that she had kids while still being somewhat depressed...

    ReplyDelete
  29. I agree with bookrockgoddess I always wanted Harry to end up with Hermoine instead of Ginny.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'd change the end of Mockingjay and probably the whole book. It was pretty disappointing for me. :D

    ReplyDelete
  31. None.

  32. I would change the ending of Bloodrose. It was a real disappointment and I felt it was very unfair for certain characters involved.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I wouldn't change the ending to any book that I can think of. I may not always be happy with the way a book ends, but it's not up to me to decide the ending.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I would change the ending of the book My Sisters Keeper. I don't want to spoil it, but I don't want anyone to die that did. Great book by the way. A definate tear jerker.
    What a great giveaway of books, would love to win.

  35. The only one that comes to mind is the Time Travelers Wife. I wish it had ended on a happier note.

  37. ....first thing that came to mind was the ending of the Harry Potter books XD I won't say what I would changed because I will be hunted down, but there are a few things I would have liked to change about the way that ended.

  39. I would change the end of Harry Potter so that there is no confusion. Harry doesn't name his son Albus Severus and does not say Snape was PROBABLY one of the bravest men he ever knew. He doesn't say anything about Snape at all.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I would change the end of the Strange Angels series by Lili St Crow. She has to choose a guy. Don't leave an open ended series.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would change the ending to The Future of Us i mean it just seemed rushed to me

  42. I love love love Jodi Picoult but it drive me nuts that she often has dramatic twists at the end of her books that change absolutely everything!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I would love to change the ending of Mockingjay (The Hunger Games trilogy). To me the ending seemed abrupt, and it left me wondering what exactly happened to other characters (like Gale). The author only gave a very vague explanation of what happened to them and the whole ending.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Possibly Forever by Maggie Stiefvater, but I keep fluctuating whether I liked the ending or think it should have had more closure.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I would change the ending of Across the Universe so there wouldn't have to be a second book. I thought the first one was so good I was disappointed that Beth Revis didn't leave it as a stand-alone book. I would have wanted it to be longer instead.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I have to say none because the only endings that I would rewrite for books would be all of the books I hated, like Mockingjay. -_- Loved the Hunger Games, Catching Fire was okay, but the third one just peeved me off.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would change the ending of Hourglass by Claudia Gray! I love the first two books but after that horrible mix of things! Grrrr! The book #3 and #4 where a waste of timeeee! I hated it!

    ReplyDelete
  48. The ending of HP 6! I don't want Dumbledore to be dead! *sob*

    ReplyDelete
  49. I would change almost everything about Breaking Dawn. But mostly Jacob's imprinting thing. I'm glad that I'm not the only one not happy with this book :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I would change the ending of Mockingjay. Was the whole point of that book to make everything Katniss did during the trilogy completely useless?

    ReplyDelete
  51. I might change the end of The Singing by Alison Croggon, but only a tiny bit because I think Mairead and Cadvan should have married eventually. :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. I would not change a thing about any ending. I like the HEA and I also like when things are more realilistic and dont work out.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I would totally change the ending of Suzanne Collins "Gregor the Overlander" series! Talk about unfinished, sad and anti-climactic...and Mockingjay wasn't much better...kinda scared to see what she writes next :-(

    ReplyDelete
  54. I would choose the end of MockingJay by Suzanne Collins. I feel like some of the things that happened negated major earlier plot points.
