Burn, Rewrite or Reread & the #VILLAINSQUAD Book Tag!

Credit: Source

Heyaaa guys!! It’s been a million years since I have done a tag! So, well, why not…

Thanks, Analee @ Book Snacks for tagging me to do the Burn, Rewrite or Reread book tag!

What to do:

-Randomly choose 3 books. (I used the ‘Random’ option on my Goodreads read shelf.)
-For each group, decide which book to burn, which one to rewrite, and which to reread. (A lot like Kiss, Marry, Kill.)
-Repeat until you completed three rounds (—though I’m doing more because why not?)

[P.S. Please understand that it’s my own opinion and don’t be serious about any of those because this tag’s just for fun. And by burn, I would never in a million years I would burn an actual book (because those are my precious, precious babies!!!) even if I didn’t enjoy it!]

Let’s get started!

Round 1

Burn: Unbreak My Heart by Nicole Jacquelyn- Okay, this was a slightly tough decision because I liked reading this book but I really hated the male lead at first, his attitude was too much and the way he treated her, she deserved much more. So yah, ah burn.

Rewrite: Hate 2 Lovers by K. Webster & J.D. Hollyfield- Well, K. Webster is one of my favourite authors when it comes to dark and complex romance and this book kinda fell in the latter category. Though it was a pretty hilarious read, some parts could have been a bit better? Ah, yeah, so I chose rewrite!

Reread: The Reluctant Sacrifice by Kerr-Ann Dempster- This was hands down one of the best fantasy books I have ever read!! The storyline, the characters were all unique including the twists and turns. This book is definitely worth the reread.

Round 2

Burn: Fallen Heir by Erin Watt- This book kinda broke the image of the sweet angelic goodness that Easton was, the guy I fell for in the first place was replaced with a complete jerk and obsessive stranger and the plot of this book didn’t help much either.

Rewrite: The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown- I am a huuuuuuuuge Dan Brown. Yes, for some the formulaic plot worked and for some not. Fortunately, I fall into the former category! But among all his books, The Lost Symbol is the book I least enjoyed, so rewrite is the best option for this one!

Reread: Saven Deception by Siobhan Davis- One of my favourite science-fiction series eeeeeever!! Aliens, politics, battles and the never-ending plot twists engaged me from the very first book till the last and I definitely want to reread it if I get a chance!

Round 3

Burn: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard- I pretty much stopped after reading Red Queen because I didn’t enjoy it that much. The plot, the characters seemed predictable to me and I lost interest in it quite soon. So, uh yeah burn.

Rewrite: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer- I umm.. loved this book but well I had to choose, so yeah…

Reread: Butterfly Dreams by A. Meredith Walters- Oooooh this was such a wonderful and beaaaaautiful read. This was my first book by Meredith Walters and I fell in love with the characters from the very beginning. So yup, definitely reread!

Thanks, Dee @ The Bookish Khaleesi for tagging me to do the #VILLAINSQUAD tag!

Create your own villain squad!

QUESTIONS:

1. Think of your own villain identity and power!

I have always loved the power of telekinesis and maybe also the ability to portal anywhere I want!

2. The Leader – Pick a villain to lead the squad.

Amarantha from A Court of Thornes and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas. She was scary and horrifying. I remember being awestruck at how cruel she could be, she definitely earns this spot!

3. The Killer Smile – Pick a villain who’s just extremely attractive

Sebastian Morgenstern from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. Ah well… Sebastian was freaking charming, nobody found out his true nature until it was veeeeery late.

4. The Loose Canon – Pick a villain that marches to the beat of their own drum

*Spoiler alert!* The Jackel from the Red Rising Saga by Pierce Brown. A mastermind at scheming and definitely the one who likes to do his own evil thing!

5. The Unhinged One – Pick a villain that isn’t playing with a full deck

Queen Levana from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. Uh… it’s a no-brainer. Levana is pretty much like that from the very start. I totally hated her but after reading Fairest I understood how unhinged her character actually was.

6. The Redeemer – Pick a villain that’s on a path of redemption/would play both sides

Aphrodite from the House of Night series by P.C & Kristin Cast. I absolutely loathed Aphrodite when I started HoN series. She was the cliched mean girl but oh my goodness, her character development was one of the best in this series. By the end of this series, she was one of my absolute favourites!

7. The Evil One – Pick a villain that is just bad to the bone

Good’ol Voldy from the Harry Potter series is the perfect candidate for this one, don’t you think? xD

8. The Once-Was-Good – Pick a villain that didn’t originally start out as a villain

The Lord Ruler from The Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson. I can’t say more. It’s hella complicated. But yeah his intentions were definitely didn’t start out that way…


Sooooo do you guys, agree or disagree with me? If not, what are your choices?

1. Do you get sick while reading in the car?

Nope. Thank God, otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to read six years in my school bus.

 

2. Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why?

Umm… there are more than one I guess. I like Neil Gaiman’s writing style, he has a unique way of storytelling that fully captures the readers attention. Casendra Clare is another author whose writing I love.

 

3. Harry Potter Series or the Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer.

Well, I love both the series but if I have to choose then it’s Harry Potter.

Because-
1. Hogwarts is awsome.
2. As much as I love vampires, I prefer them when they don’t sparkle.
3. Unique and gripping plot.

 

4. Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is in it (besides books…)?

I do carry a bag every where which alway contains a book, other than that, it has my phone, earphones, water bottle, pencil box, lip balm and all that stuff.

 

5. Do you smell your books?

Yep. Always. UNASHAMED.

 

6. Books with or without little illustrations?

Without, unless they’re particularly cute or interesting.

 

7. What book did you love while reading but discovered later it wasn’t quality writing?

Wake by Amanda Hockings. I did enjoy while reading it but something felt missing and when the book ended I realised it was not what I was expecting, I did not like the writing style at all, it was way to childish for me.

 

8. Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!

Eeh.. no not really, other than the fact that I drove my parents crazy everyday for a new book. (Which I still do.)

 

9. What is the thinnest book on your shelf?

Coraline by Neil Gaiman.

 

10. What is the thickest book on your shelf?

City of Heavenly Fire ( Mortal Instruments series, book 6).

 

11. Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?

Yeep! I love to write, I write fanfictions for now and there’s this beautiful and creative world of roleplaying where I get to plot and write with thousands of people, this is one of the best things that ever happened to me.
I am an aspiring author, I would definitely love to reach that goal someday.

 

12. When did you get into reading?

As much as I remember, I always loved reading but it was 2004, that is when I was in standard 4 as well, my cousin gifted me The Wizard of Oz by L.Frank Baum and with that book I actually got addicted into reading and into this beautiful world of books.

 

13. What is your favorite classic book?

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

 

14. In school was your best subject Language Arts/English?

Weird question.
I’ve always loved English which now, have led me to pursue literature in college. I also loved doing maths while listening to music.

 

15. If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated…what would you do?

Kindly accept it, then give it away to somebody who would like it.

 

16. This question has been missing for ages…(someone file a missing report xD)

 

17. What is a bad habit you always do (besides rambling) while blogging?

I’m always in a hurry to upload a post, but then I notice a lot of mistakes in it after it’s already uploaded and again I have to go and edit that which is a lot hectic with my weird crappy internet connection.

 

18. What is your favorite word?

It constantly changes. I like anything with “licious” and I do have my own inventions with this word. 😛 I’ve been obsessed with the word “Flippindo” for more than 10 years now after I played a Harry Potter video game.

 

19. Are you a nerd, dork, or dweeb? Or all of the above?

I’m a nerdy birdy. 🙂

 

20. Vampires or Fairies? Why?

I’m obsessed with vampires since forever but it got way worse after I met Damon Salvatore. ~LE SIGHS~

 

21. Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?

Shapeshifters I guess, umm..I kinda roleplayed an original character created by me and I enjoyed that very much.

 

22. Spirits or Werewolves? Why?

Spirits. I guess I like them… 😛

 

23. Zombies or Vampires?

Again, can’t you see I’m obsessed with vampires. I always wanted to be one.

 

24. Love Triangle or Forbidden Love

For me forbidden love is way better than love triangle given the right amount of everything. I hate it when the ending is sad but when love finally triumphs over every forbidden things, it’s an awsome read for me.

 

25. AND FINALLY: Full on romance books or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?

I get easily bored with full on romance books, that is not my cup of tea. So yep, I absolutely love the later option.

 

That was fun!
