This week’s topic is books with bad endings/endings you want to rewrite. There are minimal spoilers below (very minimal, nothing super related to the plot).
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
This is one of my favourite books and least favourite endings. It is THE WORST ending ever and I hate it. I made this topic specifically so I could rant about the ending of this book. I won’t spoil it, but if you have read it, please let me know your thoughts below! Because I think it is literally the worst ending to a book I have ever read.
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
I really enjoy this book, but the ending has a creepy rapey scene and it really ruins the ending. I would rewrite it to take out that scene, because the ending is great otherwise.
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
So I like the ending for the most part. I just don’t like how it’s dragged on unnecessarily. I really just want to edit it and take out some of Theo being depressed in his hotel room.
The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins
I liked how the series ended overall and I wouldn’t change the official output. BUT there are TWO character deaths that I hate and I wish they weren’t there. One of them I can live with and I think it actually explains Katniss’ feelings fairly well, but the other one was completely unnecessary and I just remember being shocked that it happened. It wasn’t even a good death. THEY DESERVED BETTER.
Are there any endings you’d like to rewrite? Or that you hate? Let me know below!
Thanks for reading!
