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.

What some my favorite characters were doing when they were my age – part 2, age 14

Hello! Today was a pretty busy Thursday, but I have a four day weekend coming up: an exciting one, because my birthday’s on Sunday! I did a post like this last year, but it was all about 13 year old characters. I’ve been so excited for this one for so long, and it was so much fun to put together.

I’m in a weird in between age right now: Most young adult protagonists are 15-18, and middle grade characters are usually 12 and under. But I managed to scrape up a pretty good list of characters, and I hope you have fun reading about what they were all up to when they were my age, fourteen years old!

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: Age categories in books

This post is a couple days late, but this week’s LTB topic is a great one!! This week’s official topic is What Make You Continue Picking Up YA/Middle Grade Books? (suggested by Sam @ River Moose Books), but I decided to change it a little for a few reasons.

The main reason was that I’m 14, which means that I’m in the YA age group, and am barely outside of the middle-grade age group. So, I’m going to instead talk more about what makes me like MG vs. YA vs. adult books, as well as some of my favorite books in each category!

Also, MG stands for middle-grade and YA stands for young adult!
