Hello friends and fellow book lovers! I have a confession to make: I’m skipping out on my non-bookish favorites this month. Instead, you’re getting a tag post and I’ll get into the 2 reasons. The first reason is I have a HUGE backlog of tags I need to do and second, I couldn’t think of many non-bookish favorites for this month.
Hopefully, you guys don’t mind and you enjoy the tag. Thank you so much to Laura from @thebookcorps for tagging me! I love her blog aesthetic and how her posts look, she is aesthetic #goals.
- 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)
Read: The Summer of Jordi Perez (and the Best Burger in Los Angeles)
Rewrite: The Female Persuasion
Burn: Paper Girls Vol 1
Surprisingly, this one was really easy. Even though I didn’t love The Summer of Jordi Perez, I could deal with reading it again. Also, I think a rewrite of The Female Persuasion would help that book immensely and make it a lot better. As for Paper Girls, I wasn’t a fan so into the flames it goes!
Read: Girl Against The Universe
Rewrite: A Season of Daring Greatly
Burn: We Are Okay
This one was so hard, oh my gosh!!! I like all of these books so it made this even tougher but I knew I would reread Girl Against the Universe. It was such a great book featuring a female athlete and rewriting A Season of Daring Greatly would hopefully make it more like Girl Against the Universe. Sadly, that means We Are Okay had to go…I feel sad already 😦
I couldn’t have ended up with 3 more wildly different books but let’s get into it!
Read: Things That Make White People Uncomfortable
Rewrite: Pride and Prejudice
Burn: Amina’s Voice
This round was bonkers! Also at this point, all my pictures deleted from the post and I was too lazy to add them back in lol. Anyways, I had to reread Things That Make White People Uncomfortable because it’s amazing. As for Pride and Prejudice, there’s no way I could burn that and I don’t remember much from Amina’s Voice so goodbye!
Read: I’ll Give You The Sun
Burn: My Heart and Other Black Holes
I’ve been over a year since I’ve read I’ll Give You The Sun so I’d love to revisit it. As for Royals, I think it could handle being rewritten and a few edits. I read My Heart and Other Black Holes last year and enjoyed it, but I don’t think it will hold up as much so I’m burning it!
Read: How To Make A Wish
Rewrite: Princess Leia Vol 1
Burn: They Both Die At The End
Sigh, no one kill me just yet! I’ve been a huge fan of Ashley Herring Blake so I for sure want to read How To Make A Wish again. As for Princess Leia Vol 1, I enjoyed it but I’d like to make some changes and rewrite some scenes. They Both Die At The End was a 4-star read when I first read it but I think looking back, I got swept up in the hype. I’m sorry Adam Silveria fans, please don’t call deathcast on me!
Reread: Stalking Jack the Ripper
Rewrite: Juliet Takes A Breath
Burn: Bingo Love
This last round was another tough one for me! I liked all of these books and wish I could save them all. However, I should probably reread Stalking Jack the Ripper before Escaping from Houdini comes out. As for rewriting Juliet Takes A Breath, I think there’s some room for improvement. Sadly, that means I have to burn Bingo Love.
Even though this tag gave me a headache (aka losing all my pics), it was pretty fun and kind of challenging. I know this is an older tag so I’m not to tag anyone but if you want to do, you are officially tagged!!
