The Reread, Rewrite, Burn Book Tag

I just saw this post on Germaine Han’s blog and it looks so fun! And…. quite miserable, but that’s beside the point.

The way this tag works is you first pick twelve books that will participate in the competition, and you make a wheel using this website. (Thanks for providing the link, Germaine!)

Then you spin the wheel three times. Out of the set of three books that are chosen, you will need to decide…. which one you would reread, which one you would rewrite, and which one you would burn.

Because I’m doing twelve books, I’ll do four different sets. This is the wheel of books I have chosen….

Are you ready for this? Off we go!

Round One

The three selected books from the wheel….

  • Mara, Daughter of the Nile
  • A Slave’s Quest
  • Shiloh Autumn

Uhhhh…. *blinks*

I CAN’T BURN ANY OF THESE.

Ok. Let’s see….

Reread Mara, Daughter of the Nile. This one is so perfect and intriguing! Spies, lies, and espionage. (Yes, I realize that those three words are very similar). ๐Ÿ˜

Rewrite Shiloh Autumn. It was grippingโ€”and I totally cried at a few partsโ€”but I would rewrite the ending. It’s been awhile since I read it, but I remember it got a bit slow near the end.

Andโ€”andโ€”BURN A Slave’s Quest. Even though I loved this one so much. It was sorta cheesy (and predictable) but IT DOESN’T DESERVE TO BURN.

Now the wheel looks like this:

Round Two

Next up!

  • The Hunger Games
  • Wonder
  • Flipped

Oh ok! Well, this one is pretty safe, I think.

Reread The Hunger Games. This one hurts my soul, but it’s so sweet and well-written and overall amazing.

Rewrite Flipped. Um, I don’t know what I would change! I just don’t want it to burn! Well, I guess I would change…. um…. oooh! I would’ve liked to see more of Julie’s brothers, and more of Bryce’s sister.

Burn Wonder. That would be incredibly hard, but it has to be done.

After eliminating those three, the wheel now looks like:

We’re halfway done!

Round Three

The next three contestants are:

  • Dreamlander
  • The Mysterious Benedict Society
  • The Ruins of Gorlan

OF COURSE IT HAD TO BE THOSE THREE. *sobs*

I can’t do this. I can’t burn one of them. They’re too precious. Why am I doing this.

*procrastinates for approximately six hours*

*steps back in*

Alrightttt let’s see….

Reread The Mysterious Benedict Society. These characters were unique and the story was so engaging.

Rewrite Dreamlander. The only thing I’d really change would be the ending.

BURN THE RUINS OF GORLAN. I DON’T KNOW WHY IT HAD TO BE YOU, WILL. FAREWELL.

Round Four

The last three are:

  • Charlie Wilcox
  • Murder on the Orient Express
  • Holes

I think this won’t be too bad? Hopefully? ๐Ÿคฃ

Reread Holes! I LOVE this book!

Rewrite Charlie Wilcox. I would like to see more of Davy in the story!

Burn Murder on the Orient Express. It was super interesting, but it’s not top priority. ๐Ÿ˜‰


There we go! I survived with only burning four precious books. *pouts*

But it was fun! NO IT WASN’T. Yeah, it was fun!

I don’t know if this is an official blog tag or not, but if you would like to participate, you totally should! Pick a few of your favourite books and put them on a wheel. Have fun with it! Enjoy burning your books.

Well, that’s all for today, folks! Have a great week.

Blessings,

Alabama Rose
