I was tagged by Mandy @ Book Princess Reviews to do the Burn, Rewrite, Reread tag! I saw this tag floating around the blogosphere a while ago and I’m so glad I finally get to take part in it! So, thank you Mandy for tagging me!! If you haven’t followed Mandy yet, do yourself a favour and do it!
- Randomly choose 3 books (Tip: Use the “Sort > Random” option on your Goodreads’ Read shelf.).
- 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 six).
Burn: The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater. Sorry guys…but I have higher priorities. And although I liked this book, I can live without it!
Rewrite: The Wrath & the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh. Despite how much I loved this book, it could use a little more development in the curse aspect in my opinion. Oh and more Despina and Jalal!
Reread: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. No brainer here.
Burn: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray. I liked this book, I still need to read the third book but I found the main character quite whiny and she did not think things through!
Rewrite: REPLICA by Lauren Oliver. This had such a great concept! Especially with the whole flip book thing, but it just wasn’t thrilling or action-y enough! MORE ACTION PLEASE! But keep that Narnia reference!
Reread: Gathering Darkness by Morgan Rhodes. This is the book where I fell in love with Magnus Damora…so yeah…..
*such a hard round!*
Burn: Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo. I’m sorry! I’m sorry! I do love this series but this is being imaginary burned as a sacrifice for my love for the other books!
Rewrite: The Scorpio Races by Maggie Steifvater. If it were up to me I would add a little more on Puck’s family and some more kissy scenes with Sean!
Reread: Cinder by Marissa Meyer (my Queen) I ACTUALLY WILL BE REREADING THIS SO LOOK AT THAT!
Burn: The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson. I really liked this series because it had some Spanish fire…but it just did not live up to the epicness I was hoping it would.
Rewrite: The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski. I LOVE this book, but it comes with its drawbacks. It gets a little boring sometimes so I would add in a little more drama!
Reread: Winter by Marissa Meyer (my Queen) One of the best books I have ever read! EVER. Also, Thorne.
Burn: Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas. This book can burn in real life and I wouldn’t care. LET IT BURN. LET IT CRUMPLE. LET IT BE WASHED OFF THE FACE OF THIS EARTH!

Rewrite: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. I liked this but I didn’t love it. Maybe I would just make it a little more juicy. I read this ages ago so I don’t remember much!
Reread: The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi. So beautiful, I was rereading my favourite parts the other day! Utter perfection.
*No need to do this, if you have already done this!*
Happy re-reading (burning and rewriting)!
