Reading and Blogging: How they Affect Writing – Let’s Talk Bookish

It’s the last discussion of the year my friends!! I am so excited for today’s topic, not just because I think it’s great (I may be biased since it’s my topic lol) but also because it’s the final discussion of this year meaning that 2020 is finally going away!!! And also, I’m finally on winter break!! First semester is over!!! Yayy!!

Okay, I’ll calm down now lol.

As always, Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, that is 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.

Today’s topic is: Reading and Blogging: Their Effect on Writing

This is something I’ve been thinking about recently after seeing many people’s NaNoWriMo posts in the past few weeks (NaNoWriMo is a writing competition that is hosted in November) and also because I’ve been working on a story myself. So I was curious to see how people feel about reading and blogging and how it affects their writing.

Redemption Arcs – Let’s Talk Bookish // aka the most amazing plotline. ever.

Hey everyone and welcome back to another Let’s Talk Bookish! As always, Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, that is 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.

Today’s topic is: Redemption Arcs

This was Dani’s topic, and I’m super excited since this is one of my favorite plotlines. We’re also not going to be talking about just books today my friends. Yup, you read that right. There’s going to be mentions of a TV show as well, because the redemption arc in it is the absolute best as far as I’m concerned.

So without further ado, let’s get started!

December Topics – Let’s Talk Bookish

Another year has…well, this year hasn’t flown by at all, but I am glad that it is coming to an end. I cannot wait to see what 2021 brings (it’s ironic how I probably said the exact same thing at the end of 2019 and then 2020 decided to be a disaster). I really hope that everything has hit rock bottom this year so we can start on a new and better path next year. hopefully

Before the year ends though, we’ve still got December’s topics to go through. As always, Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly, 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 Eleanor for suggesting a topic! We actually only have three discussions this December because we’ve made the last one a freebie, so we’ll end the year on a more relaxed note.

December 4th: Redemption Arcs (Dani)

Examples: Do you like redemption arc plotlines? What are some of your favorites? What makes up a good redemption arc? Can any character be redeemed or are there some characters that are too far gone?


December 11th: The Writing Styles of Classics and Contemporaries (suggested by Eleanor @ Wishing Upon a Star)

Examples: Do you prefer reading classics or contemporaries? What differences do you notice between the two? Why do you think the “classics” have been designated classics and are studied in school? Are there any newer books that remind you of classics?


December 18th: Reading & Blogging: Their Effect on Writing

Examples: Have you sometimes felt that as a reader, you should also be a writer or vice versa? Do you think that a desire to write is connected with a love of reading? What motivates you to write? As a book blogger, do you ever feel discouraged about publishing a book because you know how readers & bloggers can react to books/authors? Do you think that authors can be book bloggers as well, or that they’ve crossed the imaginary line between authors and bloggers and therefore are not like other book bloggers anymore?


December 25th: There’s No Topic today; enjoy your day off!


As always, 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.

If you have any ideas for topics, please share them in this form, or you can use my Contact page!!

We appreciate each and every suggestion!

What do you think of December’s topics? Do you have any fun plans for all the breaks coming up? I’m just ready to sleep and sleep throughout the entirety of next week lol. Are you taking part in NaNoWriMo? If so, what are you writing about if you’d like to share? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

When to Take a Reading Break – Let’s Talk Bookish

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a fantastic weekend. I am so looking forward to Thanksgiving break so I can chill out a little bit, write posts, read a lot, and just in general have a great time.

Anyway, it’s Friday Saturday and that means I’m late for this week’s Let’s Talk Bookish. But that’s okay, it’s better late than never. For those of you who are new, 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.

This week’s question is: When are reading breaks a good idea? (suggested by Lydia @ Lydia Schoch)

Thank you so much to Lydia for suggesting this topic! As I seem to be on an extended semi reading break, I do have some thoughts on this topic, so let’s get started!
