Welcome to Thursday Things, where you might find a rant, a rave, a question, or just about anything else! Let’s scrounge around in the junk drawer of my brain and see what we can find!
Is there a book that you wish had a different ending? Maybe the whole thing was pretty great, but then the ending was a disappointment?
I think I’ve encountered a few of these, but the first one that comes to mind is The Magicians by Lev Grossman. It’s been quite a few years since I read it, and I don’t remember all the details at this point (not that I’d want to spoil it for you), but I remember feeling rather let down at the end. I know that it’s the beginning of a series, and maybe I’m missing something by not reading the rest, but I can’t say that I wanted to after the first.
What about you? Is there a book ending you’d change? Let me know in the comments!

Most good books to me have a bummer ending. I hate it that good books end at all. I often take a bit to get into a book, and once I’m in, I don’t want to put it down. Having to out it down because it ends too early is my main bummer with reading haha.
It sounds like a good problem, at least!
