Tag it Thursdays: I occasionally get tagged by fellow bloggers to complete various tags. Once a month I will post my response. Please, feel free to tag yourself if any of these tags interest you!
This month’s tag:
Burn, Rewrite, Reread Tag
I found this tag on Analee @ Book Snack in January of 2016 and thought it was a lot of fun to do. I thought it would be a fun way to wrap up my 2016 reading year by only using books I read in 2016. Which, was a lot harder than I thought it would be. Why Goodreads doesn’t have a random feature is beyond me, but I figured it out!
-Randomly choose 3 books.
-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 (I like 5 as a better number)
Burn: Dangerously Damaged is the first of a serial that was never finished. Something I didn’t know when I started to read it in August. Super disappointing…probably why you don’t see it for sale anywhere.
Rewrite: While I enjoyed The Revolution of Ivy, I wouldn’t have minded a little more excitement. I always wanted this series to be a little more “dangerous” and that’s what I would hope for in a rewrite.
Reread: Wicked Sexy Liar was a lot of fun to read. The Wild Seasons is one of my favourites!
Burn: Incarnate was a huge disappointment. It was slow and dull and not what I expected at all. It would be shame though to burn such a beautiful cover.
Rewrite: This one is tough because Schooled was AWESOME! The only thing I would rewrite about it would be giving us Dylan’s POV as well as Alexis’.
Reread: The Winner’s Trilogy (The Winner’s Kiss) is one of my all time favourite series so this is a given. I’ve even bought all the books (a rarity for me) just so I can have them later in life to reread–and share!
Burn: I’m going to go with Why Not Me? for this one. I much preferred Why is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?
Rewrite: This is tough because nothing comes to mind immediately in terms of what to rewrite for Kick, Push. Maybe rewrite it so I don’t get all those feels? Haha. No, in all seriousness, maybe more focus on the skateboarding aspect?
Reread: Cress is one of those books I appreciated a little more in hindsight I think. The Lunar Chronicles is one of my favourite reads and this one was one of my favourites in the series. Oh Captain Thorne…
Burn: This really isn’t fair because I truly enjoyed Modern Romance. It was very interesting and the audiobook was hilarious. But it’s kind-of a one time read…
Rewrite: YES! Rewrite Gambit! This book had so much potential but really lost it on the execution if you ask me. It had a weird flow and the exposition was much too long. But it has all the right stuff there just itching to be put to good use.
Reread: The Speak Series (Say Nothing) has a great couple in Ari and Ben. Their story and connection was so sweet and heartwarming, why wouldn’t you want to reread this?
Burn: The List had pretty much every trope I hate in New Adult romance: love at first sight; a love triangle and a selfish heroine. One of the most frustrating reads of this year.
Rewrite: I really enjoyed the concept of 27 Days to Midnight but I wanted it to be a little more exciting. Maybe some more romance?
Reread: Courtney Cole writes fantastically heartbreaking New Adult novels and If You Leave is no exception. One of my 5 star reads of this year and one I wish I had read earlier!
Disagree? Let me know!
Please Tag Yourself and Link Back for me to read!
I was worried you’d want to burn Cress! It’s my favourite book out of the series, not just for Thorne but also because I adore Cress. I agree with you about 27 Days to Midnight – it has an interesting concept, but there are things about the execution that could be done better.
Haha, no, I wouldn’t burn Cress. By the end of the series Cress was one of my favourite characters so I would never burn her novel 😛
