- Randomly choose 3 books you’ve read. (Use the ‘random’ option on your Goodreads “read” shelf.*)
- For each group of three books, decide which book you’d burn, rewrite, or reread. (A lot like “Kiss, Marry, Kill.”)
- Repeat until you complete three rounds (or five)
This one’s not too hard! I would reread Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas because it’s one of my faves. I would rewrite Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard, because even though I liked it, I know a lot of people found it to be cliche and trope heavy so I’d rewrite it to be more original.” I would burn So You Want to Be A Wizard by Diane Duane because, even though it was one of my favorite books as a kid, I’m not into middle grade now.
I got this one! I would reread Ruins by Dan Wells because I love the Partials Sequence! I would rewrite The 100 by Kass Morgan because, while the concept is interesting, the novel’s execution is really boring. I would burn Paper Towns by John Green because I disliked it and found it dull. #sorrynotsorry
I would reread A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray no necessarily because it’s my favorite but because of these three I liked it best. I would rewrite A Book of Spirits and Thieves by Morgan Rhodes because I think it was a neat concept that could have been executed better. I would burn Requiem by Lauren Oliver because I disliked that book enough to DNF it.
I would reread The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman because I first read it when I was 9 and while I had an inkling of the philosophical and religious undertones of the book then, I know a lot more about it now and I’m interested to see if I’d agree or disagree with Pullman’s ideas. I’d rewrite Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas honestly because I don’t want to reread it and I don’t want to burn it. I’d…this hurts…I’d burn Wildwod Dancing by Juliet Marillier for no apparent good reason other than I have to 😥
