Nope. Trust the source material, especially when it's this good, or write your own story.

Jackson did a much better job with LOTR (though inexplicably left out a crucial late chapter in "The Return of the Kind"), but has made a hash of the "Hobbit" with his "tinkering."

I'll save my 1800 yen, and buy a new book, I seem to have lost one of mine.

The female elf in LOTR worked out pretty good but I don't remember her being in the novels.

(I guess because her story was in an appendix, not the main text of the novels as wikiing just turned up: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tale_of_Aragorn_and_Arwen.)

"I feel thin, Frodo, sort of stretched. Like one book made into three three-hour movies."

Nice, saw that exact quote on imgur like a week ago.

You're both wrong and the Wiki entry ought to be scrubbed. Go back an re-read the LOTR. There are three female elves that figure prominently in the LOTR. There are none in The Hobbit.

Yes, "I guess because ..." addresses "I don't remember". But was Arwen's mention in main text of LOTR prominent? It has been a long time since I last read it and wiki's note re "Her few appearances in the books ..." doesn't seem to indicate "prominent".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arwen

Her few appearances in the books suggest that Arwen is a minor character in The Lord of the Rings

http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Appendix_A

Appendix A at the back of The Return of the King has information on Annals of the Kings and Rulers, including:

I The Numenorian kings

(i) Númenor (ii) The Realms in Exile (iii) Eriador, Arnor and the heirs of Isildur (iv) Gondor and the heirs of Anarion (v) Tale of Aragorn and Arwen ...
