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.

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!

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.

Let’s Talk Bookish – Series vs Standalones

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 the age old argument series vs standalones!

Series vs Standalones is an debate that is always going around and there is never a consensus on the answer. I think it is one of those questions that really depends on the mood that you are in and what you are reading.

Let’s Talk Bookish – How Many POVs are Too Many

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 was a freebie, so I have decided to go all the way back to February 2020 and have chosen to discuss how many POVs is too many!

I think different POVs have become something that I have noticed more the longer that I have been reading, as I have been gradually working out what I like and what I don’t like from the books that I read. Especially as there is such a variation between books but also between genres.

Let’s Talk Bookish – What Do You Do When a Book Triggers You

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 about what I do when a book triggers me!

Triggers are something that are really important as a reader as there are somethings that you just don’t want read about, or are going to be dangerous to you and your mental health.

Let’s Talk Bookish – Pets and Books

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 about pets and books, two things that don’t tend to mix well!

This is definitely something that I worry about as we currently have two family dogs (Yoshi and Lola, who are both Shih Tzu’s) who like to cause some trouble. We also have as a family had a house rabbit (called Jazz) who did like to take an interest in books.

Let’s Talk Bookish – Having A Blogger Identity Crisis

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 having a blogger identity crisis!

A blogger identify crisis is not something that I have ever considered but the more that I think about it, the more that I think it is something everyone will probably go through.

Let’s Talk Bookish – Book Recommendations

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 I have decided to twist a little bit and come up with some book recommendations.

I have a couple of books that I think everyone should read as I think it depends on what they like and whether they actually like reading. Reading tastes are very specific to one person, as the saying goes “One person’s trash is another person’s treasure”.
