Let’s Talk Bookish – What Make You Like A Character

Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well! As it is once again Friday, it is time for another Let’s Talk Bookish edition. Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books and Dani @ Literary Lion. This weeks topic is all about cut and paste characters!

This is one of those topics that I have given quite a bit of thought to, but I haven’t really answered. I tend to like all characters so long as I can get an emotional bond from them. But there are definitely some types of characters that I like more than others.

Top Ten Tuesday – Ten Spooky Books on my TBR

Hey guys, it’s Tuesday again so it means it’s time for Top Ten Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic was a Halloween Freebie because Halloween is coming this Sunday. So I have decided to go make a list of ten spooky books that I want to get if I don’t get too scared!

My Halloween’s normally feature me curled up with a good spooky book and so form of autumnal candle, so I thought this one was a fun one for me to do! I normally get quite scared whenever I watch or read something scary, so I can’t guarantee how many I will get too, but these are some of the ones that have caught my interest.

Let’s Talk Bookish – What’s Your Backup Plan For Posting

Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well! As it is once again Friday, it is time for another Let’s Talk Bookish edition. Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books and Dani @ Literary Lion. This weeks topic is what plan I have when I forget to write a post!

What to do when I haven’t got a post sorted is something that I have given quite a bit of thought to, and it usually depends on how late I have remembered that I should be posting.

There are just some days when you completely forget to prepare a post beforehand. In those instances, is there a specific kind of post you quickly throw together to stay on schedule? Do you just miss the day and move on?

On a day that I haven’t remembered to write a post, it depends on what type of post should be going up on that day. Because I have a pretty strict schedule with myself, I usually don’t forget that I am meant to post, but occasionally it happens. I tend to make sure that I have started all of my posts a couple of days before they should happen, which makes it a lot easier if it gets to the morning and I have not done it. This is something that I really recommend doing because it always means that a job looks easier when you come to do it. Posts like my WWW Wednesday can’t happen until the morning of Wednesday, so they tend to be the ones that I end up forgetting about, but I find these to be reasonably easy to write on the morning of, as the majority of the post is just my thoughts and I can write what I am thinking. Usually, my go-to post if I have forgotten that I am meant to writing, I will tend to go with some kind of tag as I have quite a few that I still want to do, and I can normally come up with my answers quite easily.

If it is a review that I have not written, I will tend to just miss the day and move on. As much as I have a schedule with my reviews, I do not mind missing one because things happen, and I may not have finished my current read. I do not have any backup reviews written at the moment, but this is something that I am trying to change. I have reduced my review schedule because I was frequently not making the semi-schedule that I had made, but I am hoping that by taking the pressure off, I will be able to read even more. This may not happen, but that doesn’t matter because both reading and blogging are meant to be fun for me.

I suppose I am ultimately trying to say that I don’t really mind if I end up off of schedule because it is not the end of the world, and all that matters is that I am happy with what I put out. I would much rather miss a day than putting something out that I am not completely happy with.

Do you have any posts that you can easily put together? Let me know what you do in the comments below!

WWW Wednesday – 20th October 2021

Hey Everyone, I hope you are doing well! Sorry I missed last weeks post but I am back now and I can’t believe that we are already in the middle of the week! Welcome to my WWW Wednesday post for this week. WWW Wednesday’s is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words, and all it involves is answering three simple easy questions that I always seem to overcomplicate:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Let’s Talk Bookish – Overused Book Tropes

Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well! As it is once again Friday, it is time for another Let’s Talk Bookish edition. Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books and Dani @ Literary Lion. This week’s topic is a follow up from last week’s one, Cut and Paste Characters (if you have not checked out my thoughts yet, you can click on the title and it will take you there). 

I have quite a few thoughts on this topic because I don’t believe that tropes can ever be overused as lots of people have different interpretations of them, but if you keep seeing the same version, it can become boring.

Let’s Talk Bookish – Cut and Paste Characters

Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well! As it is once again Friday, it is time for another Let’s Talk Bookish edition. Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books and Dani @ Literary Lion. This weeks topic is all about cut and paste characters!

This is not something that I’ve really sat and thought about, but it is definitely something that I have noticed recently in the books that I have been reading. There seem to be a lot of the same character archetypes floating around within the new books that I am reading, but I would never say that they are complete copies. In my post I have mainly centred it around fantasy romance and the rise of it, as this is a sub-genre that I know quite a bit about, but I am sure it is relevant to the wider picture.

I am currently reading Shadow Stained by Rachel Hobbs and am about 50% of the way through it. So far I am enjoying it, but I am a little bit confused by the plot as it was not what I was expecting based off of the synopsis. I much prefer one of the characters than another, but I am intrigued to see how that is going to change as the book continues. You should be seeing my fall thoughts for Shadow Stained on Thursday, so keep a watch out for that.

What did you recently finish reading?

The book that I most recently finished reading was The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. While I wouldn’t say that I was disappointed with this book, I was just expecting a lot more from it. I didn’t really like any of the characters, but I don’t think that I was meant to, so for me that just meant that I wasn’t as invested in the story. One thing that I did love was Madeline Miller’s writing style, she has such a lyrical writing style that did keep me engaged throughout the book. I am hoping that I am going to enjoy Circe even more than The Song of Achilles, especially as I don’t know the story as well.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Once I have finished Shadow Stained I plan to pick up The Seventh Cadence by Jim Wilbourne. I was kindly provided a arc copy of The Seventh Cadence by the publisher, so I am looking forward to it. All I know is that it is a new debut adult fantasy series, so I can’t wait to dive in. After that I don’t really have any more set plans, so I will probably just see where my mood takes me.

Top Ten Tuesday – Bookish Pet Peeves

Hey guys, it’s Tuesday again so it means it’s time for Top Ten Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is ten of my bookish pet peeves!

Going into this list I didn’t think that I had that many, but as I started writing I remembered so many other little things that bother me. I’ve tried not to go too serious with this topic and have tried to keep it to ones that we can all relate too.
