Let’s Talk Bookish: Balancing reading for your blog and other hobbies

Hello, and happy Saturday! I didn’t have school Thursday or Friday, and it’s been nice to relax a little over the weekend, although I didn’t get a ton done in terms of writing for nanowrimo, or blogging. It’s been a bit over a week since my last post, and I’ve pushed this post back a bit since I’ve been really busy with school. I think that this is a really great topic, and one that comes up a lot in my life since I have a lot to balance, between school, blogging, reading, and everything else in my life!

Let’s Talk Bookish: When a post doesn’t do very well

Hello, and happy Friday! I had a really busy week at school, and combined with nanowrimo, I’ve had no free time at all the last couple days. I’m really excited for this week’s LTB topic though, since it’s something I have a lot of experience with. I do lots of different types of posts, and they always end up doing really differently, so here are my thoughts on this topic, and my answers to this week’s questions!

Let’s Talk Bookish: What makes you like a character?

Hello, and happy Friday! Today was my school’s homecoming, which was pretty fun. Because of covid, we couldn’t have a dance so instead it was a carnival. I volunteered for a little bit at the Amnesty International club’s booth, and I had fun with that. I met up with a friend, and we wandered for a little bit. Anyways, I’m excited to get into this week’s LTB topic, which will be me talking all about book characters and what makes me like them!

Let’s Talk Bookish: Overused book tropes

Hello, and happy Friday! Today I didn’t have school which was really nice, and I did a small birthday thing with some friends, and I had a really good time with that!! I also read a fair amount this morning, and finished reading One of Us is Next, by Karen M. McManus. It was really good, and in my opinion much better than the first book in the series.

Anyways, onto today’s Let’s Talk Bookish topic! This one was actually suggested by me, so if you couldn’t guess, I’ve got lots of opinions on it. I’m so excited to be talking all about overused book tropes, so I’m gonna dive right into this post.

Let’s Talk Bookish: Cut and Paste Character Archetypes

Hello, and happy Friday! I haven’t had too much happen this week: just little bit of reading, and a lot of school work. I’m really excited for the weekend! I have dance for a lot of tomorrow, from 10-2:30, but after that I’ll hopefully get some writing done (maybe nano prep, but I’m not sure) and I’m going to try and schedule some blog posts. Anyways, I’m actually really excited for this week’s prompt: I think that I’ll have a lot of thoughts on this weeks LTB topic!

This week’s topic is: cut and paste character archetypes (suggested by Dani)! I definitely have a lot of thoughts on this subject, and I’m excited to share them all with you..

Let’s Talk Bookish: Series vs. Standalones

Hello and happy Saturday! This week’s LTB post is a day late, but since I like doing wrap ups on the 1st of the month if possible, I decided to push this week’s post a bit back.

This week’s topic is one that I’m actually really excited about: series vs. standalones (suggested by M.T. Wilson @ Last book on the left) I don’t really know if there is one that I prefer, but I’m excited to see what thoughts I have on this topic.

Let’s Talk Bookish: Prologues and Epilogues

Hello, and happy Friday!! This week’s been really busy, as my second full week of the school year, but overall it’s been pretty good. I’ve read an okay amount, though I’ll hopefully have more time to over the weekend. Today I actually had my library volunteer orientation, which was so exciting! I also went to my high school’s writing club today at lunch. This was the second meeting, and it was so fun!! We had a prompt and wrote short stories, and I really like how mine turned out. I might try sharing it, or one of my other short stories here sometime. I wrote a lot over the summer, a few that I’m pretty proud of!!

Anyways, this week’s LTB topic is a choose your own adventure, so I decided to go back to a pretty old topic, one that I started to write back in July, and then just let sit in my drafts for a couple months. The topic I’m going to be doing today is: prologues vs. epilogues: are they necessary? (suggested by Fives @ Down the Rabbit Hole))

Let’s Talk Bookish: What makes a book a five star read?

Hello, and happy Friday! Today, I’m going back to an old topic I missed for this post: What makes a book a five star read? I wrote most of this post back in July when it was supposed to have come out, but I never finished it. So, it sat around in my drafts until today, when I didn’t have the time for a full post but really really wanted to publish one! (This is literally the smartest thing I’ve ever done in my blogging career, and I honestly should do it more. Having mostly finished posts for days I’ve planned to post and just don’t have the time.) So, I’m going to get into the post!!

Let’s Talk Bookish: Keeping books safe

Hello, and happy Friday!! It’s only been two days since my last post, but a lot has happened: I started high school! My orientation and walk through of classes was on Thursday, and today was my first full day. I didn’t do much, mostly just getting to know teachers, and getting a syllabus for each class, but I think it went pretty well!

The school is so much bigger than my middle school though, and it’s very easy to get lost. I think that I’m sort of getting the hang of everything though (I hope!!).

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly discussion post created by Rukky @ Eternity Books and is hosted by Rukky and Dani @ A Literary Lion! This week’s topic is PETS/CHILDREN & BOOKS, (suggested by Dani!)

I just went for more generally how I take care of physical books, so that’s what this post is going to be about!!
