Let’s Talk Bookish – July 2020

Good morning readers! Welcome back. Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, hosted by me @ Eternity Books & Dani @ Literary Lion, where we discuss certain topics, share our opinions, and spread the love by visiting each other’s posts.

Today, Dani & I are pleased to share the topics for July. As we did last month, we’ll be sharing these topics 2 weeks early just so that you can all prepare and pre-write your posts if you’d like.

Also, we’d love to hear any suggestions that you have for topics! It makes it more of a community thing when you guys contribute to what we all talk about. Even if you don’t participate in LTB, we would still like to hear the topics that you would like to see.

Many thanks to Lydia @ Lydia Schoch and Heran @ Be Frisky for suggesting topics! We hope you enjoy this month’s selection 🙂

July 3rd: What makes a book YA? (Dani)

Examples: Inspired by this tweet by Samantha Shannon, what makes a book YA? Do you think some books by female authors should have been Adult and were unfairly classified as YA? What are some things that definitively make a book YA for you? What are some YA books you think should be classified as adult and vice versa?

July 10th: Food That Reminds You of Certain Books (suggested by Lydia @ Lydia Schoch)

Examples: Are there any foods that you associate with certain stories? Have you ever tried baking or cooking something mentioned in a book? Do you have a favorite bookish treat? Care to share a recipe with us? 

July 17th: Blog Scheduling (suggested by Heran @ Be Frisky)

Examples: Do you post on a schedule? Do you do certain memes every week? Do you think posting on a schedule is more/less stressful than just posting when you feel like it? Do you think having a schedule is an important part of  being a good blogger?

July 24th: Our Responsibilities as Bloggers & Readers

Examples: What do you think is our responsibility as bloggers? As readers? Do you think that by being a blogger who does it for fun, it absolves us of having any responsibility about what content we produce and books we promote? Or by choosing to be content creators, we can no longer hide behind the idea of “this is for fun, i don’t want to stress”? How do we find a balance between our responsibilities and the things we want to post/read?

July 31st: How Have Your Reading Habits Changed Over Time? (suggested by Lydia @ Lydia Schoch)

Examples: Do you read more or less in general now? Have the sorts of books you read changed since you first got into reading? Does blogging change the way you read?

You don’t have to answer every question under the examples. You don’t even have to answer any of them if you don’t want to, but I’ve decided to include them as a guideline if you are unsure what to post regarding the topic.

Is there something about books or the book blogging community that you want to discuss? Do you know any controversies going in the community right now? Is there something you don’t want to discuss personally, but would love to see other’s opinions about? Please share your ideas in this form, or you can use my Contact page!!

We appreciate each and every suggestion!

That’s it for today guys! I’ll probably post part 2 of the “Reacting to my old…writing” series on Saturday or Sunday, so do stay tuned for that. I’m also thinking that it’ll be a good idea to do a reading update next week, or I might just wait and show you guys in my June Wrap-Up. Not sure yet, but it’s a thought.

Also, I was wondering if there’s anything that you guys would like to see me post on my blog? I would be happy to consider it, so do share if you want to see anything specifically.

Until next time (aka tomorrow),
