Burn, Rewrite, Reread #2

I’ve definitely done this tag once before, but I saw that Steph @ Lost: Purple Quill had done it and got the urge to do it again!

What you have to do is: randomise your read shelf on goodreads, choose first 3 books & then decide which one and why you want to burn, to rewrite & to reread.


1. Emma | ttyl | Arrows of the Queen

Burn: ttyl, I really liked it at the time I read it, but I’m sure I’d dislike it now.

Rewrite: Arrows of the Queen, the story had so much potential, but the writing left a lot to be desired.

Reread: Emma. It’s not quite my thing, but I’m not rewriting Jane Austen.


2. The Glass Castle | Proof of Heaven | Crime, Shame, and Reintegration

Burn: Proof of Heavenwhich my mom made me read and which I’m pretty sure ended up being totally (unsurprisingly) fake?

Rewrite: Crime, Shame, and Reintegration had important info, but if I recall correctly, it was kind of dense and boring.

Reread: The Glass Castlewhich I enjoyed!


3. Octopus! | The Sirens of Titan | Mockingjay

Burn: Octopus! As much as I love octopus things, this book just didn’t interest me much.

Rewrite: Mockingjaynot that I think could necessarily write it better, but I think some things could be tightened up.

Reread: The Sirens of Titan. I remember loving this when I read it? I was on a Vonnegut kick for a long time in my late teens.


4. The Horse Whisperer | The Girl on the Train | Paper Girls, Vol. 1

Burn: Sorry The Horse WhispererI liked you, but your opponents win this round.

Rewrite: Y’all are gonna hate me for this choice but… Paper Girls. I just could not get into it but I loved the concept and think it could have gotten me if presented differently.

Reread: The Girl on the TrainHonestly, I loved this. I read it in one day and I loved it.

  1. I read the Glass Castle like….. a decade ago and didn’t get much out of it but I’ve been feeling like I should probably give it another shot at some point. I’d never heard of ttyl but I just looked it up and omg I think a book in that format would literally drive me insane.
