I have seen Top 5 Tuesday around Sophie @ Beware of the Reader’s blog and I missed doing memes since my two favorite ones are on a break at the moment. This week Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm gave a topic of Top 5 books i’d rewrite. This post contains spoilers since I want to explain a little bit why I chose certain books.
Most people love this book and maybe one of the reasons I didn’t love it as much because I don’t like YA as much anymore and because action scenes can make me yawn but after two years of waiting this is what I got? Almost 1000 pages and there were so many POVs. I just needed more romance from the last book, OK? Where was all the Rowaelin and Elorcan content I thought I’d get?
Hush Hush would’ve been such a good book as a standalone since every book got worse and worse but the second book was still a solid three star book unlike Silence. I just think as third book of the series it needed to have more character growth and I probably couldn’t have reread it if it wasn’t a buddy read.
I absolutely loved Passenger and the second book was such a disappointment. It was such a bore and I was just waiting it to be over. I thought the ending would justify all that but it just made me want to yell ‘seriously’ at it. I’d rewrite to be a bit more interesting and just change the hero’s actions in the end.
Lover at Last was one of the books in the series I skipped while reading Black Dagger Brotherhood for the first time but when I started re-reading them few summers ago I decided to loan it from the library. It’s the only LGBT+ book in the series that I’m aware of if you don’t count the spin off and I really would like to rewrite it so I could actually like Blake and Qhuinn together.
This whole series just went downhill after Dead to the World. I want to re-write this maybe the most in this list because this series could’ve been great if it didn’t do dirty to Eric Northman. I mean after fourth book you’d think we’d get to see more Eric and Sookie together but instead he barely appeared in this book. Instead I had to suffer through Sookie’s new love interest.
What books would you guys like to rewrite?
