Question: Does anyone know if there is a group of New York Book Bloggers yet? I was thinking of starting one.

This week's question is:
Q. If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? Why and to what?
I think it’s a tie between Breaking Dawn and Harry Potter.
Breaking Dawn because the hybrid human/vampire spawn with a stupid amalgam of a name was the biggest piece of cow-pie I have ever read. There should not have been any reproduction in that series unless it was Jacob and his COMPLETELY HUMAN imprint. Again, I must ask, really? Was a baby necessary?
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows- First of all, Snape should have gone out like a hero. Not like a lovesick wuss bag. He should have done all of those brave things because he was a BIG DAMN HERO not because he was chasing Lily Evans’ tail. Also, in my pretty little world, Hermione does not marry the intellectual peon that is Ronald Weasley. She grows up, matures and meets her presumed dead, former professor in a café and they fall madly in love. Yes, I am a Hermione/Snape shipper. I just can’t see her being satisfied with that moron. It’s like Lizzy marrying Collins and being happy with it. I would even settle for Draco (who also was dealt crap at the end. Balding…really?)
“What are you most looking forward to this fall/autumn season – A particular book release? Halloween? The leaves changing color? Cooler temperatures? A vacation? (If your next season is other than fall/autumn, tell us about it and what you are most looking forward to in your part of the world!)”
1. The release of Silence.
2. Pumpkin Spice flavored goodness everywhere. I schedule my fall merriment around when the pumpkin spice ice cream and coffee drinks come out.
3. The end of my summer allergies. Once those trees start dying, I start breathing. It’s lovely.
