2015 Discussion Challenge - Happy Ending?

@NicoleMHewitt @ShannonMiz #LetsDiscuss2015 

Do you prefer happy endings – or more realistic ones? mind went straight to the gutter when I typed in my title for this post. Happy ending. Get it? =D> Anyways... I would have to say it depends on the book. Some characters just get to you that you want so much for them to have their fairy tale. I do appreciate an author who is not afraid to go the other way though.

Some times it just fits the story better to not that tidy and wrapped up in a bow ending. I think for the most part I want a realistic happy ending. An ending that is overall happy but still a little messy or sad. For example the girl get the job she always wanted but loses the guy.

 What to Join? Here’s All You Have to Do:

  • The 2015 Book Blog Discussion Challenge runs from January 1st until December 31st, 2015.
  • Sign-ups will remain open until December 31st, 2015 at 11:59 p.m. Central. (So, you can sign up all year long! Come join us!)
  • You DO NOT have to have a book blog to join this challenge. If you don’t have a book blog, you may link up to discussions that you’ve started on Goodreads groups.
  • Create a sign-up post announcing your intention to participate and link up below. If you do not have a blog, you can link up to your Goodreads profile. There is no need to say what your discussion posts will be about – just tell us that you’re joining and let us know what your goal is.
  • Please link back to both challenge hosts and include the challenge button in your sign-up posts.
  • Every month, we’ll update this 2015 Book Blog Challenge Page with the links to that month’s Challenge linky – so you’ll always know where to find the latest link-up!
  • Share it! The more people we get to participate in this, the more awesome discussions we can all be a part of and the more fun it will be! So, invite your friends to join us!
  • This challenge is to help get us discussing books and book blogging, so talk about whatever you want as long as it’s relevant to book blogging. Discussions can be book related or book blogging related (or generally blogging related – no discussions about things that are completely off-topic like travel or fashion, etc). Discussions can also be about you personally if it’s a get-to-know-you type post.
  • There will be a kick-off post on January 1, 2015 on both Feed Your Fiction Addiction and It Starts at Midnight where you’ll be able to leave your links for any January discussions. At the beginning of every month, a new post will go up  on both blogs for that month’s links.
  • If you forgot to leave your discussion link in the challenge month in which you posted the discussion or the linky list closed before you had a chance to leave it, you can leave it in a future month. (No duplicates though.)
  • There will also be monthly giveaways, so make sure you check in each month!
  • Use the hashtag #LetsDiscuss2015 to share your progress and connect with other participants on Twitter.

  1. I think I usually like happy endings, but I don't want them to be unrealistic. And I DEFINITELY don't want it to be an easy happy ending - I hate it when the conflict just sort of gets resolved and you're left thinking, "Well, that was too easy!!"

  2. Right. Some times happy endings are just too forced.

  3. I too want a realistic happy ending. I don't really like sad endings because I often read books as an escape, but I wouldn't complain too much if it's done well and fits the story.

  4. I like a good ending, one that fits and makes sense for the plot and characters, even if it isn't a happy one :)
