“Different people remember things differently, and you’ll not get any two people to remember anything the same, whether they were there or not.” – Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane
I hope you’re all doing fantastically well this evening, I thought today’s quote was quite fitting for today’s post as I’m publishing my game for Wonder Week Read-A-Thon, which I’m so excited about it.
How is everyone’s reading going? Have you managed to cross off any bingo squares yet?
I’m rather behind schedule as I’ve only managed to finish Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix so far, but I’m just about to start Wilde Like Me. I think I was being a bit naive to think I could finish the whole list, whilst having full time hours at work and unpacking in my new house! But, I don’t really mind as I’ve re-read a book I’ve wanted to read again for years and I’ve started a book I’ve wanted to read for months. The whole meaning behind me participating in WW Read-A-Thon was to get on track with my TBR and I’ve started to do this, which makes me happy!
Here’s the bingo board again:
So I’ve crossed off Fantasy and I’m about to start my book which is over 300 pages.
My game – The Alternative Ending:
As mentioned in my previous post, the game I have chosen during my time as a host is The Alternative Ending.
For this I want you to choose one of the books that you’ve read/will have read by the end of WW Read-A-Thon and come up with an alternative ending for it. It can be as extreme or as minor as you want. Be creative and if you want to, share them below in the comments! I’d love to hear your ideas. If you’re not participating in WW Read-A-Thon, but also want to comment with an alternative ending to a book you’ve read then by all means do, I’d love to read them too! 🙂
Here’s my alternative ending to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix:
(Although it’s technically not the exact ending of the book, but something that happens towards the end of it)
I would choose to not have Sirius Black killed. I know that a lot of people may disagree with this decision, but I personally felt as though he didn’t really need to die. I was so devastated when I first read the book because it just didn’t feel right and it seemed to happen without needing to. I understand that it emphasises how powerful Voldermort and the Death Eaters were and makes Harry more determined to fight; but it was so cruel the way in which Harry finally connects with his godfather, only for him to die soon after.
What are your thoughts on my alternative ending? Would you choose the same ending, or would you change it in a different way?
Thanks for participating in Woner Week Read-A-Thon, be sure to check out all the other host’s posts and games. Their links are in my previous post, which is linked below. Thank you again to Rimpy for allowing me to host, I really appreciate it!
