Follow Friday (5)

This week the featured blogger at Parajunkee's View is: Lisa @ Lisa Loves Literature

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


Okay - you might want to skip over my question this week if you haven't read ALL of the Harry Potter books...


I love(d) Harry Potter. I read and followed HP since I was 9 years old, in the 4th grade. This is a series I grew up with. Needless to say, I was super mad when some of my favorite characters kept getting killed off! First, Sirius. I remember 8th grade Spring Break, I spent crying over Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix when Sirius is killed. Eventually, I settled myself down, I was like hey, it will be ok, she'll bring him back somehow, and you still have Lupin after all. Or not, seeing as he was killed off too! I have this running joke with my friends that all the characters I like get killed, which happens way too much for me. It all started (I think) with The Outsiders. Dally and Johnny were my two favorites -- and where are they now you might ask?! Ahem. There you have it...

worst feeling ever when the characters you love get killed off. I completely flipped when Sirius was killed. So many great characters died in the Harry Potter series. :|

Hi Samantha! New follower here, Happy Follow Friday!

I so agree with you! I totally expected her to turn around and reveal the truth of his not being dead in the sixth book. I cried my eyes out, and then refused to read the last one after I saw what she did with Remus and Tonks and the evil ship, as I put it. I would so bring Sirius back and let him and Remus be together forever.

Come by and say hi - Full Moon Dreaming!
