Follow the Broomstick Friday




Happy Follow Friday! Thanks for joining me for another ride On the Broomstick! September is here and I am starting to long for the color of fall foliage and cooler weather. Temperatures here in Houston have been anything but. Dry and hot. I should be putting a picture up of a shriveled up cactus, but we all have to dream, right?


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

A. Being that we are in a witchy state of mind, I would change the ending of Harry Potter. I loved the books up until the oh so neatly wrapped up little package that was the ending of the last book. Jumping ahead in time where everything is sorted out and dealt with just didn't work for me. Why couldn't there have been a follow up book? Maybe just one to lead the way into Harry's kids getting into mischief? I would read that in a heartbeat.

  3. Hopping through. I liked the ending to HP but I wish there'd been more epilogue or other post-Voldie books.

  4. I was happy with the ending to the Harry Potter series but I definitely wouldn't have been upset had there been another book or two.

  5. YESSSS! Harry Potter was my pick as well. If the epilogue was told through the eyes of one of the kids that would have been cool!

  7. Or a series on grown Harry and the gang doing wizard crime fighting... that would work for me.

  10. Hi neighbor! (I'm in Dallas!) There are a few changes I'd make to HP too, though I'll have to say I'm pleased with the way the whole thing ended! New follower!

  11. Hmm I didn't exactly hate it, so I wouldn't change it. But I did feel like that last part was just one big teaser for nothing, because she won't continue the story :(

  13. Being the maverick that I am, I penciled in my own addition to this week’s Follow Friday question and then answered it.

    Change the ending of a book? No way, no how.

    From the perspective of a reader – it never even dawned on me. As a writer I find the notion sacrilegious.

    Wait! I can explain! Follow me back to my blog for all the verbosity – http://www.howardsherman.net

    Happy Labor Day Weekend!
