Book Blogger Hop: 27th April-3rd May 2018

About the Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer's permission, I relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013.

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog. 

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)

AnswerNO, absolutely not! I know others will disagree, but as I write myself (unpublished), I respect the author's creative right to choose how they write their character's. Thousands of people can read the same text, but we'll all see and interpret things differently from each other. Therefore, whilst I may be upset about the death of a character, I understand others will view the termination differently. It's a 'you can't please everyone' scenario and as such, I don't feel it necessary to question an author's decision to terminate a character.
