I saw this different style book tag on Fiddler Blue‘s blog and thought it sounded really interesting, and what with February being a little different this year it’s the perfect time to do it!
- Randomly choose 3 books (use the ‘random’ option on your Goodreads read shelf if you want to make your life easier)
- 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 more)
BURN: Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz – Even though this is one of my favourite childhood books, there are enough others in the series to keep me happy.
REWRITE: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli – I really enjoyed this book, but it’d be interesting if it was re-written from a university student’s perspective (high school is overdone).
REREAD: The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith – As one of my favourite books I’d never change it. It was a real surprise to me just how much I loved it.
BURN: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins – Despite being thoroughly engrossed in this whilst reading it, I don’t think it’s a book I’d ever read again.
REWRITE: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling – This is one of my least favourite Potter books so maybe Jo could lengthen it?!
REREAD: Marley & Me by John Grogan – I adore this tale (*tail*) and it’s one of very few books that has ever made me cry. It’s funny, adorable and deeply emotional.
BURN: Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn – This was a cute book, but as my least favourite of the three, it has to go.
REWRITE: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – I loved the plot but the ending annoyed me. That would be changed!
REREAD: This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp – I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and it really spoke to me on a level YA books rarely do.
If you enjoyed this post and would like me to do more quirky tags, let me know in the comments (or tag me in something!)
