Feature and Follow #75 – Plot Change

YAY it’s Friday! Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature and Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers — but you have to know — the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.The Feature and Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Rachel of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to meet more new bloggers!

What sets this Hop apart from others, is that our hosts feature two blogs. Every week they will each showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow both their featured as well as our lovely hosts as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your Feature and follow post. I prefer being followed via e-mail, RSS / Bloglovin’ or Google+; but you can also like my Facebook page, or even follow me on Twitter.


Change the Plot. If you could, what book would you change the ending or a plot thread? Go ahead and do it…change it.

Oh, this is going to be really, really hard without spoiling something for other readers, so I’m going to have to be a little bit cryptic. Bonus points if you can guess what book or series I’m talking about. A story I really, really loved, with a strong female protagonist, vampires, very nice urban fantasy, politics, fights, magic and romance. Yep, the story had it all, truly! I couldn’t stop reading, flipping the pages, eager to know what would happen next. And then BAM! The love interest (whom I loved almost as much as I loved the heroine, and that’s really saying something) is killed. Gone. Kaput. You get my drift? However, later, by black magic, he was brought back to life, after the heroine grieving for a very long time, and almost getting ready to get on with the rest of her life. So there are two possible changes I would make with that plot! Either, I would not kill the love interest at all – and just let the awesome couple work through their problems, be in love, grow together, and fight the same fights – against other people; not among themselves. Or, I would have him killed, but NOT bring him back! I felt so cheated! I had cried over him just as the heroine had, and when he was magically brought back, the story kind of broke for me.

What about you? Do you have a plot you’d like to change? Were you able to write about it without spoiling anything for those who haven’t read that particular story yet? Please leave me a link so I can come and check out your Feature and follow post for the plot change.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend.

    • Oh my goodness! That sounds really awful, too, Robyn. I would have definitely wanted to change that plot as well!

      Thanks for stopping by.

    • I will check your blog to check out if you’ve already read it, Rebecca 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by, and for the new follow.

      Have a fantastic Friday.

    • Well that’s just it, if you haven’t read it, but have it on your TBR, I don’t want it to be spoiled for you, that’s why I was so vague…
      Thanks for stopping by, Nadia.

  1. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Okay, yeah. Definitely have no idea what that one was! Was guessing certain series and then yeah nothing. Can’t think of one where the dead lover is brought back. Now I’m curious!

    Here’s my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower 🙂

    • If I remember correctly, I think you have read this one, Jessica. I’ll whisper the answer to you 😉

      Thanks for stopping by.

    • Yeah, it put me completely off, and now I have trouble enjoying anything at all by that author.

      Thanks for stopping by, Liesel.

  2. Oh my! I know what book you’re talking about and basically I read the next book to know how they were going to fix the death of the most important dude, and then I just stopped reading that series. It was just too much for me. Kinda made me not trust the author cause who knows what else evil thing she might do to the plot.
    Current follower 🙂

    • I agree! I can’t touch her anymore either, Julie. And it made me SO sad, because I loved that universe and the characters so much.

      Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I don’t know if I can figure this one out, Lexxie. I’m thinking I might know but since I’m not up to date in the series 🙂 I don’t want to think about it! *ha* But I could be wrong too…

    I didn’t get my FF post done in time. But I was thinking that I would have changed Harry Potter – I would change who ended up with whom. 🙂 I asked my kids about this and they said they’d change the last book of The Series of Unfortunate Events and have something GOOD actually happen for the siblings. 🙂

    Happy Friday, my dear! Did you stay up too late reading and that’s why you weren’t awake after a 20 minute bike ride?!? 😉 It’s sunny here this morning but it’s supposed to start snowing this evening. I better enjoy the sun while I have it! Enjoy what’s left of your day, my dear! **BIG HUGS**

    • LOL Brandee, I can’t remember if you are up to date or not. I’ll check it out so I can whisper what it is to you.

      *sighs* HP is still on my kindle, hidden among all the other books I haven’t read yet!

      I actually went to bed quite early last night, I think I’m just not completely used to classes yet, so I’m exhausted. But I love all of my classes this year 🙂 Lucky you having sun today, even if you’re supposed to get more snow later. Have a wonderful weekend, my friend *BIG HUGS*

    • It is really difficult to talk about plot we want to change, but still make sure we don’t completely spoil a book or series for someone els, right? I am curious about what you chose now, Stormi 😀

      Thanks for stopping by.

    • I am looking through your reviews right now, to see if you have read it or not… And I can let you know, of course 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by, Alison.

  4. I think I know which series you’re talking about though I haven’t read it yet, I am interested in it. I can definitely see why you would be wanting to change that part. Losing anyone like that and bringing them back is playing with emotions in a hard core way. What a good choice for plot change. I’m not sure what I would choose for this question, I’ll have to think on that. Happy Friday, Lexxie! Jaclyn @ JC’s Book Haven.

    • Jaclyn, I just read my review (on Goodreads) for that book, and even back when I read it, I was suspecting that the character in question might be brought back, and I stated in my review that this would actually piss me off even more 😮

      Thanks for stopping by, Happy Friday!

    • It’s not so much the tearing apart that got to me, it’s that they were torn apart, there was grieving, and then *surprise* magical resurrection.

      Thanks for stopping by, Laura.

    • I think I could have lived with the killing if only it didn’t feel like the author was only teasing me by bringing the hero back later on…

      Thanks for stopping by Itara.

  5. I was just talking about this with a book we just read for FF.

    I think there are a lot of books on my shelf that I would change, in show way or fashion. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand pops into my head. I want to rewrite the last book. The ending made me stomp on the hardcover edition of the book before I threw it in some bushes.

  6. Yeah, it’s really difficult when a series ends in a way that’s way different from what the other books set you up to believe. I agree that the last Unearthly book would have been different if I had my say, too!

    Thanks for stopping by, Lyn 🙂

  7. I know exactly what series you are talking about and that whole mess killed me. It wasn’t handled well at all. I wish he just stayed dead, because him coming back was so much worse. Though I am happy with the last love interest.

    Jennifer Bielman recently posted: Kindle & Nook Freebies #71
  8. It was handled horribly! And even if I loved him, I would have preferred it if he’s stayed dead 🙁 I haven’t read the last book yet, but now you actually made me want to!

    Thanks for stopping by, Jennifer.
