Pick as many books as you would like, and tell us what you would change...

You can post as many times as you would like! :)

In The Vampire Diaries The Return Volume 1 Nightfall I would have had L.J. Smith stop writing after the fourth book.

In Twilight I would have allowed the characters to fall in love more naturally, with a lot of tension instead of them loving each other so quickly. I would have allowed Leah to find someone for herself.

In the House of Night series by P.C. Cast I would have only allowed ONE love interest for Zoey...

Terri (TerriLovesCrows) | 188 comments I would have Patricia Cornwell stop writing the Scarpetta books a long time ago. I now hate ALL the main characters.

I hate it when authors don't know to quit while they're ahead...

LaTrica | 121 comments I still think Jo and Laurie would have made a great couple. I accept what Alcott Louise May did but don't quite understand it. I never got that the impression that they fought that often.


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (Gatadelafuente) I would have Anita Blake go back to having one man or choose either Jean Claude or Richard and focus on kicking butt instead of getting her freak on.

I would have Wellsie get saved instead of dying in The Black Dagger Brotherhood. I would also have John Matthew not sleep with all the women he slept with because he felt that Xhex was rejecting him.

I would have Juliet check Romeo's pulse so that she wouldn't kill herself.

I'll think of more and come back later.

LOL The Romeo & Juliet thing...I completely agree! I know its a classic, and I like the story, but it really ticks me off! I hate a lot of the things that happen in it, and I do NOT think that they were really IN love. I think it was lust...



 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (Gatadelafuente) Yeah Romeo and Juliet was really silly IMHO. It made me roll my eyes.

BK Blue (paradoxically) I have to agree with LaTricia and Danielle.

It really bugged me too about Jo and Laurie not getting together. I think it bugged me even more that he married Amy. He didn't marry Amy because he loved her, he married her because he wanted in the family. And Amy married him because she wanted in the money, lol.

I have to say that I like Romeo and Juliet's ending, lol. It's the over the top, dramatic ending that makes it so well known!
