The Fantasy Tropes Book Tag

I found this tag at And On She Reads and it seemed like a fun little tag to go through. Sometimes bookish tags are just fun little windows into your own personal bookish world! It is just sitting and pondering the books you’ve read or that are on your TBR that could fit each prompt. It is also relaxing which is a high priority this time of year. Fantasy has also been my favorite genre for years and I’ve made it well known that I love me a good trope. So, let’s take a dive into those tropes and see what we see.

Spooky Season TBR

So, I thought today we would sit together and take a gander at a few of the books that are most drawing my eye right now and see if we can’t find something to read.

July Wrap Up

Hello hello, and welcome to the July 2021 Wrap Up here on Literary Weaponry. I talk frequently about my yearly reading slump that happens, without fail, every summer. This year it started creeping up on me in June and really had it’s claws in me throughout July. What amused me most, however, was that despite this being my least productive reading month of 2021 it is right on part with my average reading in previous years. I don’t know what 2021 has done to me but here we are. I’ve been a reading machine.
