Welcome to the Feature & Follow

If you are new to the #FF fun, Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. Feature & Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, myself of course and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

Now to make this #FF interesting we do a FEATURE blogger. If you are interested in becoming a Feature click on the drop down link above FEATURES > Feature & Follow Friday and get on the waiting list!  It is also required, that if you participate you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) and the two Feature blogs.

Our Feature  – Lisa @ Lisa Loves Literature

First HUGE apology to Lisa – sorry I messed up the posts.

I have been addicted to books since my mom bought me the first 20 books in the Nancy Drew series when I was like 7 years old.  I know I have a problem, if I walk by books anywhere, I have to stop and look if possible, even garage sales and the grocery store!  I current am a middle school science teacher, but a few years after I started teaching, I decided to get a Master’s degree in library science, and since then I have been searching for a library job.  It is hard to get out of science though.  So along with working at a bookstore part time, I enjoy sharing about the books I read with my students.  
I began blogging a few years ago on Live Journal.  I soon moved to a more public blog site, Blogger, when a fellow avid reader that I was one of my managers at the bookstore I work at told me about her blog.  I really read all kinds of books, but have lately, or maybe around the time Twilight came out, really gotten in to Teen or YA books.  There are so many good ones out there it is hard to not just read them all, or try to.  Not sure when this will be posted, so can’t really tell what I’m reading now, because I could be many books past when I wrote this originally.  I guess I could say I’m currently reading whatever e-galleys I can get from Netgalley.com, expecially YA books that have yet to be released when possible.  I really want to get my blog up to at least 100 followers because of some publishers on Netgalley look at that before they let you have a copy, and I enjoy meeting people who love to read the same books I read to get their opinions and new ideas to read.

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

This is going to be a spoiler fest so try to write the title of the book as a dominant feature – and warn people about spoilers.

I don’t have very many series that I want to change up no matter how many books in the series might have upset me with cliffhangers, the ending usually has a wonderful culmination that makes everything make sense (…Shadowfeaver).

But a last book in a series that I really disliked and was bittersweet was Breaking Dawn. I think it was the ultimate cop-out of Stephanie Meyers to (haven’t read the series STOP NOW!!)

for one name the child Reneseme or whatever it was. What was that? And for two, imprint the child on to Jacob.  What an easy way to have Jacob get off of Bella’s back and to tie things up so nicely. Easy way out! How did I see it ending? Certainly not with Bella pregnant. I thought it would end in an epic battle on Bella and Edward’s return with the Volturi breathing down their backs. Jacob comes back to confront Edward before he turns Bella…they battle. Jacob rips Edwards to shreds, but in the process Bella tries to save him and gets bit by both the vampire and the werewolf. Jacob so torn up by almost hurting Bella runs off to L.A. and ends up imprinting on a Hollywood actress and becoming the next big film star. Bella turns into the first werewolf / vampire hybrid and wreaks havoc because she is torn up over Edward’s death.

Vampire hunters descend on her, but she is so strong in her new hybrid state that she takes them down – but in the end causes the government to take notice of her. She is recruited in to a government agency that specializes in tracking bad vampires. Where she finds a niche group of people and a place to be herself…until she finds her husband is not quite dead…

I might have mixed up a story here.
