bibliophilewanderlust suggested I try out of the tags she recently did- Burn, Rewrite, or Reread book tag. I had so much fun reading hers, I’m kind of excited to see what I get.
The rules are as follows:
- Randomly choose 3 books (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 (a lot like Kiss, Marry, Kill).
- Repeat until you completed three rounds (or five).
Ouch, this is a hard one because I gave these three books a 4/5 star rating.
BURN: Dead Witch Walking. Honestly, I don’t want to burn this book but compared to the other two books, it was my least favorite. So sad…
REWRITE: Reckoning. Even though I really enjoyed this book, I felt terribly sad for the main character Emma. I wouldn’t change much but I possibly make it so things for her don’t go from undesirable to tragic. Maybe give her a little break..
REREAD: Beautiful Player. Oh man, I just love this book and series.
BURN:House of Night. The series showed up when I did this but either way I would burn the books. At first I really enjoyed them but I hated how morally compromised the main character became. Now I just absolutely hate the series!
REWRITE: Dominic. I really did enjoy this book but I would 100% cut back on the language. I am not afraid of swear words but this book was a little over the top. It could use a trimming.
REREAD: Beautiful Stranger. Wow, I think goodreads is trying to tell me something. Maybe I should read this series again. If you haven’t read it, you have to. It’s sexy, fun, and full of strong confident heroines and alpha males.
BURN: Down London Road. I know, I am sorry but I hated this book. I liked the writing but it was the main character Jo that pushed me away. I don’t care how unfortunate Jo’s life is or how the author tries to twist her story, in the end she is still a gold digger. She still only dates rich men in hopes they will take care, a.k.a provide for, and eventually she tries to trick them into marriage.
REWRITE: Fever. The story plot is too similar to the first book in this series. I would rewrite it so the idea was the same but the plot itself didn’t follow the same steps as the first book.
REREAD: Caged. I loved the romance and secrets. It’s impossible not to become invested in the main character when so much is happening. You just feel for her and her situation.
I would love to know what you thought of my choices. Have you read any of these books? Would you choose the same way?
Happy Wednesday Everyone!!
