This is kinda like a bookworm version of snog, marry, avoid. I LOVE IT. Thanks to Emma @ The Bookish Underdog for tagging me in aaaaall of the fun things.
- Choose 3 books per round. (Most people have been using the ‘random’ option on their Goodreads read shelf, so I’ll be doing that too.)
- For each group of books, choose a book to burn, to rewrite, and to reread.
- Repeat until you completed three rounds.
Important note: No books were harmed in the writing of this tag. Although one day If I Did It may accidentally slip and fall onto the bonfire.
- Burn: Humble Pie
- Re-write: We Were Liars
- Re-read: Double Cross
Soz, sexy Gordon, but its out of the frying pan and into the fire for you my friend! I’ve been meaning to re-read the Noughts and Crosses series for such a long time and I did think that the writing in We Were Liars was a bit style over substance at times, so this was a nice easy start!
- Burn: Private Peaceful
- Re-write: Junk
- Re-read: The Secret Garden
Ahhh this was a tough one! I read Private Peaceful at school and I enjoyed it (I mean it’s Michael Morpurgo, the man is a legend), but I’m not sure I’d be compelled to pick it up again and read it for pleasure anytime soon. I loved The Secret Garden when I was a kid and although I liked Junk, I had problems with the split perspectives.
- Burn: If She Did It
- Re-write: The Time Traveler’s Wife
- Re-read: City of Lost Souls
As if there is any contest here! The Mortal Instruments is bae, and I hope to give it a re-read and cry all over again when I have some time. If She Did It absolutely deserves to go on the bonfire (maybe even more than once) for crimes against crime dramas. I don’t actually think that The Time Traveler’s Wife needs a rewrite in any way, but the other two choices were so easy it just kinda fell there. Sorry, Audrey!
