The Burn, Rewrite, Reread Tag.

So It’s been a while since I’ve posted and in honor of me making it back heroically onto WordPress AND reading, I’m going to do a Book Blog Tag which is how Book Bloggers try and convince outsiders that their lives are the interesting and fun, which they are. As a quasi-book blogger, I would know.

So I found this tag on Emma’s blog, which I love scrolling through and reading and it’s the

Burn, Rewrite, Reread Tag.

It’s essentially the Kiss, Marry or Kill edition for books. You pick three books at random from all the books you’ve read and you assign one book for each category: Burn, Rewrite or Reread. I’m gonna go through my Goodreads book shelf and, while you only have to do three rounds as per the rules dictate, I’m going to *challenge* myself and do 5.

Round 1.

 Things Fall Apart   After Dark Swimming in the Monsoon Sea

As luck would have it, I drew three books I really liked. UGH.
Also, burning ANY book is too extreme, even if said books feature sparkling vampires and the like. But it is a challenge so:
I would reread Things Fall apart cause I kinda rushed through it the first time.
I would rewrite Swimming in the Monsoon Sea cause it kinda bored me
And I would burn After Dark because it creeped me out. But it’s an amazing book.

Round 4

  My Drunk Kitchen: A Guide to Eating, Drinking, and Going with Your Gut The Intern

I would reread My Drunk Kitchen endlessly because it was such a fun book to read even though I don’t cook.
I would rewrite The Angle of Incidence because it’s written in a Scottish brogue and it made understanding it difficult (but I really liked it)
And I would burn The Intern because it’s shallow, cheap and downright gloriously and morbidly fascinating and a bit of a guilty pleasure.

Round 3

The Red Pyramid (Kane Chronicles, #1) The Giniralla Conspiracy ; Five Journals of Sujatha Mallika The Hungry Ghosts

Shit. This challenge is unfair.

I would burn The Red Pyramid because compared to the other two, it made the smallest impression on my life (but I still enjoyed it so much)
I would….rewrite The Giniralla Conspiracy to make it less of a one time read thing.
And I would reread The Hungry Ghosts over and over and over. C’est beau.

Round 4.

Captain Corelli's Mandolin Dragon Rider (Dragon Rider, #1) Kill Your Darlings

No I didn’t choose these ones because they’re blue. They were chosen at random by a goo ol’ session of close-eyed mouse wiggling.

I would reread Dragon Rider because it is so darn enjoyable and rereadable so much.
I would rewrite Kill Your Darlings because it gets tedious sometimes (but it was one of the best books I read last year)
And I would burn Captain Correlli’s Mandolin not because I didn’t enjoy it enough but because it made me so sad and happy and I want it to be MY book and not have anyone share in the glorious pleasure of reading it.

Round 5 aka, THE FINALE

The Goldfinch The Memory Keeper's Daughter Colpetty People

So this list is a little easier. But still doesn’t have any clear cut winners/losers.

I would reread The Goldfinch because it sorta went over my head due to its sheer size.
I would rewrite Colpetty People in that I would alter the sequence the short stories are ordered so it becomes more cohesive as a short story collection
And I would burn The Memory Keeper’s Daughter out of revenge because it made my stone heart die.



And that is that fellow bloggers/readers/people who found this on google due to some happy accident of a search.
The challenge is complete and while tagging others and forcing them to do something is always such fun, I leave this open to any and all (which means no one will probably take even the slightest interest in this post).

Bon Appetit! (I’m about to have dinner)
