How an author can get on my shit list REAL FAST

A few years ago after reading the Twilight series I stumbled upon Stephanie Meyer's website and found that she had started re-writing the entire story from Edwards point of view.  Someone had released a portion of it online though and that upset her so she stopped.  This made me mad.  Because reading the story from his point of view was AWESOME.  I loved finding out all of the information I missed hearing it from Bella's view.  I held out hope for years that the author would finish the book.  

She didn't.

I'm still mad about it.

This weekend I settled down to read the 50 Shades of Grey series.  Whoah...I don't know how I feel about it still but...it captivated me.  When I came to the end of the book I found a new chapter, the author started writing the story from Christians point of view.  I was captivated because hearing the story from Ana's side left a lot unsaid.  I was so excited to read it.  I knew she was going to talk about....this one certain part where when I was reading the book I was just dying to know what Christian had done.

BUT THEN SHE STOPPED.

It just stops with a note saying, "That's all for now."  I was livid.  What about the next ten pages.  What about that really big important thing I needed to know?

WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENS?

I'm mad.  I invested a lot of hours reading those books (all three books in 2.5 days) and then she pulls that same fucking stunt.  WHY?  Why do they keep doing this shit?  Either finish the book or leave it alone but please stop writing these partial drafts only to get bored and quit because now I'm going to spend forever wondering WHAT IN THE HELL HAPPENED THAT NIGHT...AND THOSE FIVE DAYS.

And that is how an author can get right up onto my shit list.


Love, Misguided Mommy

The funny thing is that 50 Shades of Grey was originally written as a Bella/Edward Fanfic... so it's kind of funny that Stephanie Meyer did it and now this person who was writing Stephanie Meyer's characters did it.

I know! I really wanted to read it from Edwards perspective. I keep hoping she will change her mind
