Let’s Talk Bookish – February 2023 topics

Hello, and happy Monday! I know that I’m very late in getting these topics out, and I apologize for any problems that this has caused with any of your blog schedules. I am very excited to share the topics for this month though, and I’m excited to read all the different posts for these topics this month. So, let’s get into the February 2023 LTB topics!

Let’s Talk Bookish is a bookish meme that was created by Rukky @ Eternity Books where each Friday, bloggers write posts discussing the topic of the week. Since April 2022, I’ve been the host of LTB, and I post each month’s topics here on my blog!

I also have an archive of the topics on my blog, which you can find in the menu of my blog! My archive has the topics from April 2022 and all months going forwards, and all previous topics can be found on Rukky’s blog.

Thank you so much to Jillian and the Bageler for suggesting our topics for February! If you’d like to suggest a topic, you can do so using the Google Form linked at the end of this post.

 February 3: Do You Read Reviews and Spoilers Before or After? (Jillian @ Jillian the Bookish Butterfly)

Prompts: Do you like looking at reviews for books before you read them? Is reading reviews important to you when choosing what books to read next? Or do you prefer to wait until after you’ve read a book to look at reviews? Do you ever look at spoilers before you read a book?

February 10: Emergency Books (The Bageler @ It’s the Bageler)

Prompts: Do you carry around emergency books? The Bageler explained the concept like this: “Do you keep a copy of Travels With Charley or Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children in your bag in case you get stuck in a waiting room, a copy of The Master & Margarita in your glovebox for long lines at the drive-through? Or has the ubiquity of phones and e-readers and similar made this obsolete? If you do, why is THAT your Emergency Book, and do you read it any other time or only when you find yourself at the DMV?”

So, do you always have an emergency book with you? What makes a book an emergency book? And what are your go-to emergency books? Do you stick to having physical books on you, or do you prefer to read ebooks and audiobooks while out and about?

February 17: Valentine’s Freebie

Prompts: For this week’s LTB, pick your own Valentine’s Day related LTB topic: you can talk about whether or not you like reading romance, or you can list some of your favorite romance tropes! You can also check out the LTB archives on my blog and on Rukky’s for more ideas. 

February 24: Are reading goals worth it? (Aria)

Prompts: We’re two months into 2023 – how are you feeling about your reading this year? Do you have a yearly reading goal? Do you think that those kinds of goals help you to feel motivated to read more books, or just causes stress? If you set yearly reading goals, when and why did you start setting them? Would you consider reading without aiming for a number? If you don’t set reading goals, why not?

Even if you don’t participate by writing LTB discussions, if you have any suggestions or ideas for topics, so you can share your ideas using the google form below!
