I have seen this fun (I use the term fun, very lightly) around the internet. I thought it sounded interesting, so I decided that it would be my Sunday post for this week.
I hate myself….
So, as far as I can tell the rules are as follows…
- Randomly choose 3 books. (Use the ‘random’ option on your Goodreads read shelf. It took me a minute to find this. It’s at the bottom of the page.)
- For each group, decide which book to burn, which one to rewrite, and which to reread.
- Repeat until you completed three rounds
So…here we go. Ugh.
Burn: City of Glass. DON’T HATE ME! I love the Mortal Instruments series, I really do! But…I love the other two books more!
Rewrite: Lover Awakened. To be honest, I can’t remember much of this book. And J.R. Ward is amazing, but there is always something in her books that makes me sad and…I could change that. Also, Zadist is probably my favorite BDB brother so I couldn’t burn this book. I could simply reread it…but rewrite sounded better.
Reread: Feyland The Twilight Kingdom. The reason I would reread this above any other is because…I would have no idea how to rewrite this and there is no way I am burning it. The whole concept of the book is just so interesting. I like it.
Burn: Two-Faced. Not that I didn’t enjoy it…but it was a forgettable book. The cover is pretty though.
Rewrite: Friends With Wings. This was a very interesting story. But, it probably could do with a bit of a rewrite…even though I remember a lot about this book. It left me feeling strange and uncomfortable for some reason.
Reread: Night Circus. OMG! I read this in 2014..two years ago..and I still get goosebumps thinking about it. I seriously need to reread this book. It was such an amazing story.
Burn: Never Fade. I really enjoyed this book. Don’t get me wrong. But when pitted against the other two, it was the only option left. I’m sorry Darkest Mind fans.
Rewrite: Turn Coat. This is one of my favorite books in the Dresden Files series. Dresden learns to understand and actually become friends with one of his biggest headaches. I just wasn’t happy with the ending and I would so change it!
Reread: You’re Never Weird on the Internet (almost). Duh! I am not changing a word of this and I refuse to burn it. Felicia Day is the role model every woman should be looking to. She is funny, quirky, and different. I may have a lady crush on her. You can’t change someones life and her life is so interesting. This book is like an open window in a fancy house. You can’t help but to peak in!
I thought about making this a monthly thing…but no. I am not doing this again. It made my heart hurt because I like most of the books on this list. Then again, it’s not often that I find a book I hate. I followed the rules. I did what I was supposed to do. I am NEVER doing this again. Not fun. Not fun at all.
Your turn. You do it. Go on…try it!
