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.

March Wrap up

Hello end of March! I can’t say that I mind March as a month. It is when the cold claws of winter finally start retracting and I can walk out my front door without having my breath whisked away by the frigid wind.

Series I Need to Finish

In the life of a reader, being in the middle of reading a series seems to be a common theme. We start a series, read the first book or two of it, then get distracted by the next shiny new story and forget to go back and finish the series. Or, as is more common for me, I read the first couple books and then I have to wait for the next one to be released and promptly forget about it.

Here are series that I hope to continue reading or to finish in 2021.

Books I Want to Read by the End of the Year

It is hard to believe but the end of 2020 is already starting its creep up upon us. I feel like I have done nothing worthy of note since December 31st but a pandemic and enthusiastic social distancing will do that to you. However, before this year winds down there is something I hope to accomplish. In January I made a list of books I wanted to get read during the year and, well, I have not been exactly successful with that. After culling the initial list, here are the books I hope to read by the end of 2020.
