Book Reviews

Read, Rewrite, Burn Book Tag

I saw the “Read, Rewrite, Burn” book tag on Fiction No Chaser and knew I had to do it! This is the book version of Kiss (let’s keep it PG), marry, kill and a ton of fun!

The Rules

  • Randomly choose 3 books
  • For each group, decide which book to burn, which one to rewrite, and which to reread
  • Repeat until you’ve completed six rounds (or however many rounds you want to do)

Round One

I loved Okayest Mom, but I want to know more about the kids and I want to see pictures! La La Lovely is so inspiring and The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher I would never like to read again, even if my life depended on it :/

Round Two

While I guessed the ending of Two Girls Down, I really enjoyed how it all came together. The character development was great in The English Wife, however, I wish the ending would’ve panned out differently. I didn’t dislike Not That I Could Tell, but I didn’t love it more than the others and it reminded me slightly of Big Little Lies, which I wasn’t a huge fan of.

Round Three

Onyx & Ivory was a unique idea, so obviously should not be rewritten! The Darkest Minds was another great read, however, I found it predictable at times and a little stagnant. For those that have read my review of Shadowsong, you’ll know I was disappointed in the second novel of the Wintersong series.

Round Four

 

I only chose to burn Tamarack County because it was my least favorite of the three. It was a hard choice between the first two, but I went with the one that I thought was a lighter read, which is exactly the mood I’ve been in lately.

Round Five

No competition – Agatha Christie always wins. Wintersong I liked, however, the characters can be annoying at times and like, “Really, girl, priorities!”. Our House was good, but I felt there are a lot of similar-type novels out there.

 

Round Six

That was an easy BURN! It was a tough choice between The Mayflower Bride and A Soldier’s Song on which I liked more (who I liked more of the male characters haha). I felt The Mayflower Bride was more original, but I really enjoyed both stories!


This was a fun and easy tag! Just what I needed in this busy week.

Which ones would you choose?
