Read, Rewrite or Burn Book Tag

Hello readers!

I was tagged by Laura @ The Book Corps to do this really fun tag, which I have seen around and it’s always so fun to read what people answer! It took me literally half a year to answer the tag, but here I am!

The Rules

  • Randomly choose 3 books
  • For each group, decide which book to burn, which one to rewrite, and which to reread
  • Repeat until you’ve completed six rounds (or however many rounds you want to do)

Round 1

Watch Me Jody Gehrman The Immortalists Chloe Benjamin pestilence laura thalassa

Burn: This is an easy one! PESTILENCE.

Rewrite: The Immortalists. I loved this book, actually, so I suppose I would change it just a little. I’d love to have more magic in it, not just that little sprinkling of magical realism.

Re-read: Watch Me! This was so creepy a read!!

Round 2

the italian teacher tom rachman When Dimple met Rishi Sandhya Menon Stillhouse Lake Rachel Caine

Burn: This is hurtful but… When Dimple Met Rishi. I KNOW. But the other two books are so amazing.

Rewrite: The Italian Teacher. I love a good historical fiction about art, but this was slightly too slow at times. So I would shorten the story a bit and make it even more emotional.

Re-read: I LOVE this book!

Round 3

circe madeline miller The Doll House Phoebe Morgan A River in the Darkness Masaji Ishikawa

Burn: The Doll House. This was an easy pick… since the other two are books I loved so much!

Rewrite: A River in Darkness. This was such an interesting read, I wish there was a little more. A few more stories.

Re-read: Circe! I’ve read this one recently and I LOVED it.

Round 4

A Court of Mist and Fury Sarah J Maas trespassing brandi reeds.png china rich girlfriend kevin kwan

Burn: This is such a difficult choice. I loved Trespassing, but one must go, and I have other thrillers that I loved more.

Rewrite: China Rich Girlfriend. This book is GREAT, but it could definitely do with a little less describing luxurious areas and a little more Kitty.

Re-read: A Court of Mist and Fury. This book is addictive. I actually need to re-read it soon.

Round 5

180 seconds jessica park As Good As True Cheryl Reid my sisters grave robert dugoni

Burn: As Good As True. It was just not as good as I’d hoped.

Rewrite: My Sister’s Grave. I enjoyed the read, but it was so, so predictable. I wish it had been a little less following the script!

Re-read: 180 seconds! Such a cute, cute book.

Round 6

Angelfall Susan Ee Never let me go Kazuo Ishiguro The Wedding Date Jasmne Guillory

Burn: I didn’t dislike this book, but I didn’t love it either. So… it must go!

Rewrite: Angelfall. I LOVED this book, but I’d love it to be a bit less YA, which is, well, unreasonable for a YA book. But I’d love if this book had been adult fiction.

Re-read: Never Let Me Go. Such a masterpiece.
