I wasn’t actually tagged for this but it looked like fun and I decided I felt like doing it!
-Randomly choose 3 books.(You can use the ‘Random’ option on your Goodreads read shelf.)
-For each group, decide which book to burn, which one to rewrite, and which to reread.
-Repeat until you completed three rounds.
Reread- I would reread The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. This is one of my all time favorite books. I could never burn it and I can’t for a minute think of an aspect that could be rewritten.
Rewrite- I would rewrite The Darkest Touch by Gena Showalter. I loved this book but there was a few pieces I would have probably redone. I anticipated a big reunion scene with a certain character that never came, which was disappointing. I might also rewrite it to go beyond her usual formula for these novels. Just to change things up a bit.
Burn- That leaves me having to burn The Map of Time by Felix J. Palma. Now I actually enjoyed this book but I do remember it being a bit long at times. It has been a long time since I read it and it didn’t really stay with me over the years, so if I had to choose a book to burn this would be it.
This was a difficult one because I love all these books.
Reread- I would reread Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I adore the Harry Potter novels and can’t imagine rewriting any part of it. And it would be a nightmare if I had to burn them!
Rewrite- If I had to rewrite one I think I would rewrite A Clash of Kings by GRRM, mostly because it is so long and I think it could be cut down a bit. The whole series could probably be rewritten to take out some unnecessary elements.
Burn- I love The Road by Cormac McCarthy but it is the one that is left. I don’t want to burn it but it just got the short end with these three.
This one was probably the easiest to decide on.
Reread- I would reread The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. This is another of my all time favorite books. It is so different than anything I have ever read before.
Rewrite- The Littlest Uninvited One by Charles Tazewell is a heart warming story about a dog taken in by an angel. The ending is perfect for anyone who has lost a pet. I would only rewrite the end to have a bunch of reunion stories just for the warm hearted feeling.
Burn – This one was easy. Marley and Me by John Grogan is one of the saddest stories I have ever watched and read. I am a huge animal lover and I balled in the theaters watching the movie and cried again reading the book. I would burn it just because I can’t ever go through that sorrow again!
This was a fun tag. So I tag anyone who wants to have fun!
