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.

Mid Year Freakout Tag | 2021

It is time once again for that most sacred of book blogging activities, the Mid Year Freak Out Tag. Now, I’ve done this every year since I started Literary Weaponry and I have to admit my answers each year are nothing short of laughable. I just looked back on the last few years and not only does my post style change but apparently my tastes see-saw widely as well. What a joy. I look forward to looking back on this post in years to come and wonder what I thought I was thinking.

Anyway…here is my 2021 mid year tag. There have been some real highs and lowest lows but overall it has been a great year.

Goodreads Was Wrong Booktag

I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump lately so I figure that now was the perfect time to put together a book tag! This tag was found at Way Too Fantasy and it seemed like a fun romp. It can be frustrating when you don’t feel like reading but still want to be active in the reading community. Just because you aren’t in the mood to read doesn’t mean that you aren’t a reader, a lover of books and stories. Participate in a way that makes you comfortable. I guess this is my way of saying that even though I don’t feel like reading I’m not going to shut up about the stories I love or even the ones I hate.

The Spooky Halloween Tag

Halloween is almost upon us and while we can’t do the normal yearly Halloween parties or trick or treating, I still love Spooky Season. However, explaining to my seven year old that she can’t go trick or treating was not something I wish to repeat. Instead she is dressing up as the Cheshire Cat, her daddy is going to be the Hatter, and we are doing an at home trick or treat event with her stuffed animals. We are trying our best to keep her life as normal as possible so hopefully it will turn out well.

Mid Year Freak Out Tag

It is time once again for that yearly tradition that is the Mid Year Freak Out Tag! Yay! Since I started Literary Weaponry I have loved doing this tag. It is a fun and interesting way to look back at the first part of the year and reflect on the books you’ve read and see what others in the community have been reading as well. It is also fun to see some of the trends that pop up! For instance, this year I’ve noticed many more contemporaries read than I have the past. I’m not much of a contemporary reader myself but I love seeing other readers excitement over these books.
