Burn, Rewrite, Reread #3

I haven’t done this meme in so long, but I recently got the urge to do it again! It’s such a fun game.

What you have to do is: randomise your read shelf on goodreads, choose first 3 books & then decide which one and why you want to burn, to rewrite & to reread.


All the Birds in the Sky | The Vegetarian | Sometimes I Lie

Burn: All the Birds in the Sky, I just didn’t love it!
Rewrite: Sometimes I Lie, it was good but could’ve been a bit better.
Reread: The Vegetarian!! Which I’m definitely going to reread at some point anyway. 🙂

Animals in Translation | Linger (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #2) | Collected Poems by Jack Gilbert

Burn: Linger, which I enjoyed BUT compared to the other two this is just the decision I need to make.
Rewrite: Animals in Translation becaaaause I can’t choose to rewrite someone else’s poetry, especially when I enjoyed it!
Reread: Collected Poems, since this is just where it needs to fall.

Chains | Carrie | Eleanor

Burn: Eleanor, which I unfortunately just didn’t like very much.
Rewrite: Chains, which I did think was great BUT I’m just not ready to rewrite Stephen king.
Reread: Carrie, in part because I’ve been wanting to reread it anyway.

2. The Secret Life of Bees | The Miseducation of Cameron Post | Ender’s Game
Burn:
Oh no this is so difficult… The Secret Life of Bees. Mostly because I read it so long ago that I don’t remember much of it.
Rewrite:
The Miseducation of Cameron Post, rewrite it to make me cry less pls.
Reread:
Ender’s Game, by no means perfect but hey.

3. Empress of the World | Lord of the Flies | The Carnivorous Carnival
Burn: 
Empress of the World was lovely in theory, but I didn’t enjoy the writing at all.
Rewrite: Lord of the Flies, I remember loving this but I haven’t read it in ages and I can’t rewrite Lemony Snicket, sorry!
Reread: The Carnivorous Carnival.

4. The Wide Window | The Little Book of Hygge | A Clash of Kings
Burn: 
The Little Book of Hygge. Sorry! I know people love this, but it felt like something that could have been condensed into an essay rather than written as a whole book imo.
Rewrite: A Clash of Kings, I love this book but like I said–can’t rewrite Snicket!
Reread: The Wide Window.

5. The Subtle Knife | Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance | The Last Animal
Burn: 
Y’all this is… literally the hardest one of the five. Burn The Last Animal, just because it’s the only one of the three without a five star rating from me (I’m so sososo sorry, baby).
Rewrite: Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance.
Reread: The Subtle Knife.
