Burn. Rewrite. Reread.

So I saw this book tag on Snow White Hates Apples’ blog, and it looked super fun so I decided to try it! Keep in mind that I am THE WORST decision maker. Literally. I can’t make decisions without over-thinking it, and taking ages.

The Rules:

1. Randomly select 3 books. (I randomly choose books from each page on Goodreads from my Read shelf.)

2. For each round, (each round with 3 books), choose which one to burn, rewrite or reread.

3. Repeat. (If you are particularly adventurous, repeat AGAIN!)

Round 1:

First book: Invisibility by Andrea Cremer and David Levithan

Invisibility was a pretty good book, but I felt like it could have been so much better if it had a different ending and/or different plotlines. So I would have to say rewrite, because, even as I was in the middle of the book, I was already thinking of my own conspiracies as to would could happen, or what should have happened.

Second book: Book of Lies by Teri Terry

really liked Book of Lies, so this is an easy reread for me, especially because I have been wanting to read it again the second I finished it earlier this year!

Third book: Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer

As much as I liked the Lunar Chronicles series, I actually didn’t like Cinder as much as the rest in the series. I really don’t like to burn it, but you can’t really rewrite a fairytale. The Lunar Chronicles is a retelling, but I can’t rewrite it and change the plot, so, sadly I have to say burn it!

Round 2:

First book: The Jewel by Amy Ewing

I’m going to choose reread for The Jewel, because I have already read it twice because it was so good, and also because I had to reread it before I read the second one since I had forgotten what happened!!!

Second book: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Rewrite. I really liked Delirium! But I haven’t gotten around to reading the rest in the series, because I started the next one, and just didn’t enjoy it. I would rewrite it so that it was a stand alone novel, so that I didn’t feel bad about not finishing the series.

Third book: Lemonade Mouth by Mark Peter Hughes

This is a definite burn, because I actually read this almost 2 years ago, when I was obsessed with the Disney Channel Original Movie based off the book. I enjoyed it, but I definitely wouldn’t read it again, mainly because I have watched the movie so many times.

Third and final round:

JUST A SIDE NOTE: THIS ROUND WAS BY FAR THE HARDEST!

First book: Girl Online by Zoe Sugg (aka Zoella)

I am going to have to say rewrite it, because as much as I loved it, I loved one of the other books in this round a little bit more, and I couldn’t possibly burn it, so rewriting was the only other option 😦

Second book: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Oh. My. Gosh. I literally am in love with this book, I have read it 3 times and everytime I finish it, I want to start it again, like, straight away. Definite reread.

Third book: Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

I actually loved this book. I wasn’t really sure how I was going to feel about it when I first started it, (which was a couple of years ago), but I ended up loving the romance in it, and although I loved it, it is fantasy, and if you asked me about this round when I was in the middle of a few fantasy books, instead of a few contemporary books, the outcome would be different, probably. But *sigh* I’m going to have to say burn it!

I hope you enjoyed this book tag!

I challenge The Book Nerd, thepageturnerblogger, and The Bookish Agenda to do this book tag! Good luck 🙂

The Problem With Forever

The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout is one of those books that the minute you start reading it, no matter where you left off, that you just forget it is even a book. You get so caught up in the world of the book that you don’t even realise that you’ve just read 200 pages. It’s like you can’t get enough of it. The way I see it, it’s like walking into Narnia, and as soon as you go back into the real world, you want to dive straight back into the fictional one.

The Problem With Forever is an incredible book that will make you laugh and cry. Sometimes you will want to punch the book, and other times you will want to go and give all the characters a big, giant hug. Out of all the books that Jennifer L. Armentrout has written, I’m happy that I chose this one, as the first of hers that I’ve read. I have been wanting to read one of her other series, Lux, but have been in the mood for Contemporary a lot lately, and I mean A LOT.

(And a little side note: HOW GORGEOUS IS THE COVER?! #imlovinit)


26721568For some people, silence is a weapon. For Mallory “Mouse” Dodge, it’s a shield. Growing up, she learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it’s been four years since her nightmare ended, she’s beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime.

Now, after years of homeschooling with loving adoptive parents, Mallory must face a new milestone—spending her senior year at public high school. But of all the terrifying and exhilarating scenarios she’s imagined, there’s one she never dreamed of—that she’d run into Rider Stark, the friend and protector she hasn’t seen since childhood, on her very first day.

It doesn’t take long for Mallory to realize that the connection she shared with Rider never really faded. Yet the deeper their bond grows, the more it becomes apparent that she’s not the only one grappling with the lingering scars from the past. And as she watches Rider’s life spiral out of control, Mallory faces a choice between staying silent and speaking out—for the people she loves, the life she wants, and the truths that need to be heard. (Goodreads summary)


I rated The Problem With Forever 5 out of 5 stars.
