Thursday’s Top 4: books I’d like to rewrite

Find out more about Thursday’s Top 4 here! It’s basically a meme I started mainly for myself, but anyone can participate! Visit this page for the upcoming topics 🙂

This week is books I’d like to rewrite, for one reason or another!



Caraval by Stephanie Garber

This book would be the biggest rewrite. It had a great premise and some not bad characters (Tella was okay, Scarlett was annoying, Julian was stereotypical) but ultimately I didn’t understand the clues or conclusions made by Scarlett, the magic was unrealistic, the ending was a copout, and I just didn’t get it?

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I hate the ending of Before I Fall. I don’t want to spoil it, but let me tell you, it is pretty bad.

The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness

Honestly, the only major change I would do is take out the love triangle. It was so unnecessary and would’ve been much better without it.

Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi

I would honestly just add more explanation. Why did Boy hate Snow? Why couldn’t you see Bird in mirrors? Did any of Bird’s part have any relevance? I loved the plot and idea of this story, and it was well-written, I was just left confused.


Those are the books I’d like to rewrite! Have you read any of these? Would you want to rewrite them? Are there any books you’d rewrite? Let me know!

Thanks for reading! xx

  1. The first book I thought of that I’d want to rewrite is Flame in the Mist. It had great premise and some great descriptions of the setting, but most of the characters were completely unrealistic (even for a fantasy) and the insta-love-but-i-can’t-love-you-because-i-hate-you nonsense just drove me nuts.

      1. Yeah, just keep in mind that it has a lot of the current common YA tropes (many of which annoy me) and you should be able to enjoy it for what it is. I went into it expecting too much, and it didn’t meet my expectations.

  2. I had the same feeling about Mr Fox by Helen Oyeyemi. I think her writing style is just very out there and unique, and I’m not complaining, I just think it’s a little too confusing for me personally.
