It has been forever since I’ve been active here on the blog. Life has been pretty busy. I’m not making any promises that I’ll be back in full force at any time before the end of the school year (come on, June!), but I wanted to post a non-review for you.
I haven’t done a tag since January, so a tag is my obvious choice!
The name of the game is Burn, Rewrite, Reread and it plays very similarly to Kiss, Marry, Kill (or other versions of the game that use an expletive instead of “kiss”).
- Randomly choose 3 books. (Use the ‘random’ option on your Goodreads read shelf. Thanks for that tip, it makes this so much 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
This round is EASY-PEASY.
Burn: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. Even though I rated this higher than Heir of Fire, I thought ACOTAR was wildly inappropriate for the intended audience. I could rewrite this, but I would want to burn it first and then start completely anew.
Rewrite: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas. I enjoyed the first two books in the series but I didn’t like this one. I wouldn’t have to completely start over to rewrite and make this one better. I’d take out some of the slower parts, add some details to the Manon sections so that I would be less confused, and tweak some other elements here and there. (Seriously, though. Every time I got back to a Manon section, I would confuse characters’ names with their witch clans. Which witch is which?)
Reread: Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I highly enjoyed Cinder the first time, so I’d definitely reread it.
Another easy one.
Burn: Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan. I gave this two stars. Even though I read it pretty much in one sitting, I did not enjoy it. I could easily throw it away forever.
Rewrite: 11/22/63 by Stephen King. The ending. I’d rewrite the ending. SIDE NOTE: If you’ve seen the Hulu show and want to read the book, you need to know that the book is extremely different from the show.
Reread: The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. This is one of my favorite books from my childhood and I’d definitely read it again.
This one’s a little harder, I guess.
Burn: Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern. I rated this a 4/5 stars, but it’s my least favorite of the three. I guess it has to go.
Rewrite: What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler. I just finished this book and I loved it. However, there were a few scenes in this novel that I would absolutely rewrite. The main relationship had its insta-love moments and there was this creepy seen where she meets up with another character that was out of line. I’d find another way for the two to run into each other.
Reread: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. As you know, I loved this book! In fact, I might reread it as soon as I’m done posting. I’ve been wanting to reread this book ever since I finished it the first time. I loved it this much:
There you have it, folks. I hope you have an excellent day/night/weekend/week/month/whatever until you see me next. See ya later!
