Hey all! As the title suggests, it’s time to share the LTB topics for February. Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, hosted by me and Dani @ Literary Lion, where we discuss certain topics, share our opinions, and spread the love by visiting each other’s posts.
Many thanks to M.T., Jillian, and Mini for suggesting topics! If you’d like to suggest a topic, you can do so using the form below.
Without further ado, let’s get started!
February 5: Cliches and Tropes (Suggested by M.T. Wilson @ The Last Book on the Left)
Prompts: Can cliches and tropes be done well? When is something a trope and when is it a cliche? When do you enjoy cliches or tropes, and when do you not? How much do cliches/tropes affect your overall opinion of a book?
February 12: What makes a book beautiful? (Dani)
Prompts: It’s impossible not to sometimes judge books by the cover – what makes a book beautiful to you? Are there certain covers you’re drawn towards, and certain styles you stay away from? What are some of the most beautiful covers you’ve seen?
February 19: Are Big TBRs a Result of Abibliophobia? (Suggested by Jillian @ Jillian the Bookish Butterfly)
Abibliophobia is the fear of running out of reading material, and TBRs are lists of books you plan to read.
Prompts: Do you have abibliophobia? Do you add books to your TBR to keep it big, or is it a place where you keep books that seem interesting? Do you have multiple TBRs? If you don’t have a TBR, how do you find your next read?
February 26: How has blogging affected your reading? (Suggested by Mini @ Book and Corner)
Prompts: Has blogging affected your reading in a positive or negative way? If so, how? Do you think the pressures to produce content can result in a bad relationship with books? How do you balance blogging and reading? Do you think you would have started blogging if it weren’t for books or vice versa?
If you have any ideas for topics, please share them in this form!
I’m very excited for these topics, and I’m already trying to think about what my position will be and how I’ll explain my thoughts lol. I know that I do need to update the LTB tab on my blog with the topics, so I will do my best to get that done right away. How are y’all doing? What topic are you most excited for?
