Burn, Rewrite, Reread Book Tag!

Thank you Zainab @ A Bibliophile’s Obsession for tagging me! If you have not seen her blog, I cannot recommend checking it out enough. It truly is gorgeous ❤ So click the link, you will not be sorry 😉 Let us begin!

The Rules:

  • Randomly choose 3 books (pro 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 (like Marry, Boff, Kill).
  • Repeat until you completed three rounds (or six) (or however many you want to do).

Round One

Burn: 666 by Jay Anson. I actually feel like this is unfair and honestly  I would never burn a book. The horror! Come one people, this is not a Ray Bradbury story 😉 But I am choosing this one because it has been so long since I read it, and the title did not leave a lasting impression.

Rerwrite: This is a gimme! In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware had so much potential. However, the ending was too predictable and it could have used a bit more creep factor. So yeah!

Reread: The Little Prince or Le Petit Prince by Antoine De Saint-Exupery is a classic for a reason. Read it if you have not! And then read it again 🙂


Round Two

 Ermagerd! What a horrible list to choose from! I loved all 3!

Burn: It feels like sacrilege, but I will go with Gerald’s Game by Stephen King simply because this book messed with my head and I am not sure I could ever reread. I also would not change a thing about it, so I cannot rewrite 😦 Ugh, I am crying over choosing this for burn. King is the best!

Rewrite: The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo was beautifully written. However, I feel like it could have used a bit more depth in relation to character and world building (I wanted more elaboration) so rewrite it is.

Reread: Fablehaven: Keys To the Demon Prison by Brandon Mull. I love this series! I am actually encouraging my son to read these, so I may be rereading with him soon! Brandon Mull is fantastic!


Round Three

 

Burn: This was easy. I believe The Memory Keeper’s Daughter by Kim Edwards is one of the only titles I have ever DNF’d. I gave this well over 100 pages in and could not stay with it.

Rewrite: Macbeth by none other than the one and only William Shakespeare. Let me clarify that there is not a single thing I dislike about Macbeth, but it is definitely one that can be retold countless times with new spins and twists.

Reread: Duh! The Hobbit or There and Back Again by JRR Tolkien is my favorite book. If you do not know that by now, you really are not reading my posts. I would not change a thing! In fact I actually have started rereading this annually. Yes I love it that much. When I find time this year, I believe it will be my six consecutive annual reread 😉


♥ Nominations ♥

Ok here is the part where I am horrible about following the rules. I invite everyone to play along, but I will try to be good and tag a few of you. Of course this is all in fun so no pressure 😉

    1. LOL are you being serious or sarcastic Inge (about the nomination)? 😉 I can totally edit it and include you bawhaha. There are many Shakespeare retellings 🙂 What can one more hurt? This was a tough tag for me. Honestly, who burns a book?!

  1. Yeah, same thoughts here: what kind of book lover would actually BURN a freaking book?! 😀 Fablehaven is now officially added to my list because of your thoughts on it, but also because I’m a cover whore <3. Really? You like The Hobbit? You clearly never mentioned that before! 😉 :-* Thank you for the tag!! ❤ *Tuts at Inge*
