I was tagged by Heather @ The Sassy Book Geek to do this tag. I’ve already done it once (you can check that out here), but I’m going to do it again because it’s fun. 😀 So thank you Heather for tagging me! Also, I may have reviews of some of these books, so hover over their titles if you’re interested and see if there’s a link there!
- Randomly choose 3 books (Tip: Use the “Sort > Random” option on your Goodreads’ Read shelf.).
- For each group, decide which book to burn, which one to rewrite, and which to reread (a lot like Kiss, Marry, Kill).
- Repeat until you completed three rounds (or six).
Burn: Tribulation Force by Time LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. I enjoyed this book. But not tremendously. So I don’t really have a problem burning it.
Rewrite: I’m going with The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. Don’t get me wrong, this book is AMAZING and beautiful and I absolutely loved it. I would just much rather reread the other one because I love Artemis Fowl and for some reason, it’s very difficult for me to reread historical fiction.
Reread: I have spoken before of my love for this series. It’s one of my favourite series and why wouldn’t I want to reread it?
Burn: The Adventure of the Lion’s Mane by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I love Sherlock Holmes, but I can’t say that this was my favourite Sherlock Holmes story and it can’t really compare to the other two, so it’ll have to go.
Rewrite: The Hundred Year Old Man That Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson. I really enjoyed this book, but it’s not really the kind of book I could reread.
Reread: Of course it was going to be the Harry Potter book. I love rereading these. I have reread them several times and I’ll do it again.
Burn: Iron Kin by M.J. Scott. I didn’t really like this book. It’s my least favourite in the series. But even if it were my favourite in the series (which is Shadow Kin, if you were wondering), it still could not compete with the other two.
Rewrite: Power Study by Maria V. Snyder. I actually really loved this short story. It was really cool. But A. It’s a short story, so it can’t really compete with a novel and B. It’s up against ASOIAF. So it’ll have to be rewritten.
Reread: I’ve actually been meaning to reread ASOIAF before Winds of Winter comes out (so like, in the next decade).
Burn: For once, there isn’t one that I would clearly burn out of the three. Maybe I’ll go with Scorch Trials by James Dashner because I think this was my least favourite Maze Runner book.
Rewrite: Three Act Tragedy by Agatha Christie. I really enjoyed this book. I love Agatha Christie and she had me guessing with this one. But with detective novels, rereading them isn’t very fun because you already know who did it. So I’ll have to rewrite this one.
Reread: Two Years Holiday by Jules Verne. I remember reading this when I was like 12 and really loving it. I’m curious if I’d enjoy it as much now, so I’d reread this one.
Burn: The Forty-Five Guardsmen by Alexandre Dumas. I don’t even remember much of this book other than Chicot. I used to read a lot of French historical fiction for some reason and I really loved it. But that was when I was young. Now I just read YA. I was such a pretentious kid.
Rewrite: Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare. I would write some more Magnus into it cause there can never be enough Magnus.
Reread: Of course I wouldn’t change a single thing about The Hobbit. And of course I want to reread it!
Burn: Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid. I actually really loved this book, but it just can’t compare to the other two. Sorry!
Rewrite: This is where the hard part begins. Both of them have that one thing that happens that just pulls your heart right out and uses is as a chew toy. So that could be rewritten for both of them, I guess. But I also definitely want to reread both of them. Hmmmm… I’ll go with Crooked Kingdom, because in CoM, at least that unspeakably horrible thing leads to a lot of things being set in motion and it’s really important, whereas in Crooked Kingdom… it’s just cruel.
Reread: And that leaves Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas.
I’m too lazy to tag people right now, but this is a fun tag to do, so if you want to do it, I tag you to do it. Leave a link below if you do so I can check it out!
