Let’s Talk Bookish

Hello and welcome.

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, that was originally created and hosted by me starting in August 2019, and was then cohosted with Dani @ Literary Lion from May 2020 to March 2022. It is now being hosted by Aria @ Book Nook Bits.

It’s a meme where participants discuss certain topics, share their opinions, and spread the love by visiting each other’s posts. Details on suggesting topics and downloading the official header images, as well as an updated archive with the latest topics will all be available on Aria’s blog.
