Hey there! I found this book tag type thing from Victoria @ Addlepates and Book Nerds A LONG time ago, and had it sitting in my drafts for so long..! So I thought I might as well do it—even though I have tons of tags I actually was tagged in to do, because I make perfect sense that way. 😉 (Also, hush, this is not a last-minute post because I forgot to do a review today, whaaaat?) Also, do note; I do realize using the term ‘burn’ in reference to books is quite a crime—I am no book burner! 😄 Remember not to take it seriously, haha.
What to do:
-Randomly choose 3 books. (I used the ‘Random’ option on my 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 (—though I’m doing more because why not?)
Let’s get started!
Burn: Matched by Ally Condie. It was kind of a conflicting decision, to put this either in burn or rewrite, because truthfully this book would be completely fine, if it were to be rewritten differently, but in the end, this is going to have to go into the fire! This book really was no fun for me.
Rewrite: Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid. This was not that bad of a novel—I guess there were just too many elements that I wasn’t a fan of. So a rewrite it is!
Reread: Out of these three, hands down, Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi! No competition. I enjoyed it so much more than the other two, and it was such an amazing series ender!
Burn: Reawakened by Colleen Houck. Another disappointment! In light of my other choices, this is definitely going to the fire.
Rewrite: The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan. Don’t get me wrong, I really liked this book, except as a series finale and with my high expectations, this book is in need of a few rewrites, in some parts! But overall I still liked it.
Reread: The Young Elites by Marie Lu. Currently working on a review for it—it’s simply amazing. A definite reread! ❤ If you haven’t read this book or series yet, definitely do so (or if you want, you can wait for the release of the third book to binge-read it.)
Burn: Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier. This wasn’t a bad book, really. It just wasn’t the BEST, and out of these three, I’m afraid this one is what I’m gonna have to go with—though this could just as easily fit into ‘rewrite’.
Rewrite: Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. Although I enjoyed this well enough, it would’ve been better if some parts were written differently, in my opinion.
Reread: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh. Come on, you all saw this coming, right?? I loved this book and would not mind rereading it at all.. I’m actually considering re-reading it before the release of the second book, but that’s a maybe. 🙂
Burn: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews. Is it bad that I kind of had no qualms of choosing burn for this one? At least among the other choices. I mean, I don’t know. This just wasn’t something that clicked with me.
Rewrite: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover. This wasn’t a BAD book, persay, but it did have its faults! So definitely rewrite.
Reread: Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. This was such an entertaining book! I saw some mixed reviews on this before and after reading it, but to me, it was as good as any. Reread for sure!
Burn: Bossypants by Tina Fey. Unfortunately I have no qualms about choosing this one for burn either..? Non-fiction/memoirs aren’t exactly my forte…
Rewrite: Insurgent by Veronica Roth. I actually found this to be pretty good (unlike Allegiant…) but it did have a few parts where I wasn’t a big fan.
Reread: Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. Gosh, THE FEELS in this one is so intense! I would absolutely love to reread this. *Heart-eyed emoji*
