I was tagged by Jesse @ Books at Dawn to do the Burn, Rewrite, Reread Tag. This tag looks like so much fun and I’m so excited to do it! So thanks, Jesse!
Before I start, you must know I’d never burn a book unless I absolutely had to survive or something. 😉
- Randomly choose 3 books. (Use the ‘random’ option on your Goodreads read shelf.)
- For each group, decide which book to burn, which one to rewrite, and which to reread.
- Repeat until you completed three rounds (or five)
Burn: Mismatch by Nana Malone. I don’t have a very good reason for burning it besides it’s up against romance goddess Nora Roberts and Where’d You Go, Bernadette.
Rewrite: Blue Smoke by Nora Roberts. It wasn’t my favorite book by Roberts. Honestly, I don’t even remember it very well. Maye she could make it more memorable.
Reread: Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple. It was crazy and funny and I loved it! Plus, it was set in Seattle.
Burn: Fatal Justice by Marie Force. I love this romantic suspense series, but out of the three it’s going in the burn barrel. They are 7 other books in this series I could still pick up.
Rewrite: Sweets by Tammara Webber. I loved this story, but there were too many flashbacks and a so-so ending. I would fix that.
Reread: After the Rain by Karen White. I love Karen White. This is such a touching story about a man who has lost his wife and has a bunch of kids finding love again.
Burn: Suspicious Minds by Elizabeth Reyes. I hate this. I love this author and enjoyed the book, but it’s up against a couple of heavy hitters. Plus, I like her non-suspense books better.
Rewrite: A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. Maybe he could make it shorter and easier to follow the characters?
Reread: Anything for You by Kristan Higgins. It’s the last book in one of my favorite romance series. I would totally read it again.
Burn: The Here and Now by Ann Brashares. The whole mosquito thing creeps me out and it was kind of a slow read.
Rewrite: Reasonable Doubt Volume Three by Whitney G. I would get rid of the ballerina boyfriend. Although, their phone sex was pretty funny to read about.
Reread: Sugar Skulls by Liza Mantchev and Glenn Dallas. I’ve never read anything like it before. It was really interesting, so I would probably reread this one.
Burn: Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger. This book was just…okay.
Rewrite: Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor. I hated it after the big reveal. I would leave the beginning and rewrite it from there.
Reread: The Map of True Places by Brunonia Barry. I love the stories she writes and the characters she creates.
