Book Blogger Hop: April 27th - May 3rd



Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme created by Ramblings of a Coffee Addict Writer where you answer a question and join a hop, where you'll meet new bloggers. Check her blog for more info.

This week's question:


Have you ever thought of writing a respectful, but angry letter to an author to ask them WHY they killed off one of your favorite characters in a novel? (submitted by Maria @ A Night's Dream of Books)

My answer:

I honestly have thought about writing to an author, not exactly about killing a character I liked but because Stephen King always screws up the endings of books for me ahahah He has a tendency to make me emotionally attached to people and settings and then he writes something that either: a) will leave me emotionally damaged for the rest of my life; b) makes me talk to walls about how unfair it is that this character didn't have a fair ending or c) right at the end he makes the character I like do something that will make me doubt if it was ever worth it to believe in this character.

So with him I never know what to expect, and I would love to write to him and ask him why but since he has written something like 67 books, I would have a whole lot to write ahah
What about you?

  1. Ah good old Stephen King. Always making us second guess ourselves and our judgements. Guess that's part of his talent though! I can't say I've ever been angry enough to even consider writing to an author to demand justification for a character death. I've been upset, but, at the end of it, it's the author's creation and it's their decision. I would like to ask Stephen King some questions too, though!
