Since it’s a new year I’m trying something new this month. Marry, Date or Dump has been getting a little stale lately so I thought I’d try a book version of the game I’ve seen around on tumblr. It’s called Burn, Read, Rewrite. Burn is the equivalent of dump. Rewrite is kind of the equivalent of date- although you can also list what you would change about the novel. Read equals marry.
My first books are three favorites: Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen, Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott, and Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte. I hate to “burn” any of them but I guess if I had to play the game I would …
- Read Pride and Prejudice, which is practically perfect in every way.
- Rewrite Little Women to make Laurie and Jo end up with each other.
- Burn Jane Eyre even though I love love love that book, it’s the only one left.
What would you do? Let me know in the comments!
