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 🙂

    Hi Laura! Thanks again for tagging me 😀 Great choices, although I have to disagree about Cinder since TLC is one of my fave series of all time, haha! Also, I didn’t know Lemonade Mouth was based on a book! :O I loved that movie and have watched it far too many times as well!
