Burn, Rewrite, Reread

The lovely Analee @ Book Snacks tagged me after I told her how fun I thought this looked. Thanks a million, I am so excited for this! 🙂



  • 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 (or five) 🙂

Okay, let’s do this!


Round 1:

Burn: Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult I have to say Plain Truth because the other two are parts of my favorite series. Can’t get rid of them.

Rewrite: The Ersatz Elevator by Lemony Snicket. Well I can’t rewrite HP so…yeah. If I remember correctly, this might be the one where Violet gets kidnapped.

Reread: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. It’s HP and it’s on my reread TBR for this year 🙂


Round 2:

Burn: Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson. I did like Amy & Roger’s but out of these three its definitely not my favorite. And Amy is a little annoying.

Rewrite: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. I enjoyed this book but I think that there were some parts that were a little boring during the Victory Tour. I wouldn’t rewrite much

Reread: Among the Betrayed by Margaret Peterson Haddix. I read the first book, Among the Hidden, when I was in 6th grade and when I realized it was a series, I had to read the rest of it they were really good


Round 3:

Burn: Jane Austen Ruined My Life by Beth Patillo. This is one of the worst books that I have ever read. The main character is an idiot. This book was such a waste of time that I would probably consider actually burning it. (Don’t worry, I donated it instead)

Rewrite: The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen. I would love to rewrite the main character. The whole “I’m too weak to make own decisions so I let my boyfriend make them for me” thing doesn’t sit well with me

Reread: Night by Elie Wiesel. I wouldn’t actually reread it because its so sad, but it was a very good read.


Round 4: The Nicholas Sparks Round

(I didn’t plan this I swear)

Burn: Nights in Rodanthe. This was actually a pretty good book, but the other two are among my favorite of his.

Rewrite: A Walk to Remember. This was a very rare occasion where I actually thought the movie was better than the book. For that reason I would rewrite some of the scenes that were kind of unnecessary for the development of the story.

Reread: Safe Haven. I loved this book. There are so many little details in it that make it such a good story. Of course the movie left out the important stuff and it really just didn’t do it justice. To be honest, I think the movie sucked.


Round 5:

Burn: Romeo and Juliet bu Willian Shakespeare. Okay, I know this is a classic and all but…just no. This is actually like one of the worst love stories ever if you think about it…

Rewrite: The Pact by Jodi Picoult. I hated a lot of things in this book. Mostly the boyfriend, so I would rewrite him

Reread: Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi. I love Warner, I loved that she did this from his point of view, it was perfect.

  1. I am so behind on my blog right now. I’ve been sick this whole week so I’ve been doing nothing but reading the last few days! Thank you for the tag and I will hopefully get back to blogging monday! 😄

    Great answers!
    Thanks for the nomination! 🙂


  3. Thanks for the tag! This is hilarious–what a clever book tag. “Rewrite” The Truth About Forever was my fave because, well, I’ve actually said, “The Truth About Forever” needed one more good edit. What a coincidence that three Nicholas Sparks books randomly popped up together on your randomizer list. Thanks for teaching me about yet a new feature on Goodreads. I’m going to have fun with that one, I think.

    Thanks for the tag. This looks like a lot of fun! 😀
    It’s going to be hard to burn books that I’ve read… unless I disliked them immensely!

    I loved the novel “Safe Haven”. I agree, I felt that the movie didn’t do it justice. I hated that he judged her and wasn’t originally a police officer in the movie.
