It is Sunday again. HOW DOES THE WEEKEND GO SO QUICKLY? I’ve had such a lovely week this week, that it’s only fitting that this #SixforSunday is celebrating things that are excellent about books!
Today we are celebrating:
Yep. Only 6 things I love about books. I’m going to go with characters/plots/genres I love the most.
- ANYTHING WITH MAGIC IN.
I am SUCH a sucker for magic. If there’s even the tiniest bit of magic in a book, I AM THERE. I would really love to be magical.
I am A BIG SOFTIE (I know, you’d never guess it!) and I’m all about that couple who have a lovely relationship. I’m all about first kisses, bad boys with a heart of gold, shipping a couple forever and then it happening. I’m a big lover of love.
- Potions and such things
YEP. I think this comes from the magic loving thing, but I love any kind of potion-y thing. I’m just a sucker. (Mel, I’m looking at you)
- Musical books
Not books of musicals, but books that throw musical references in. I’m ALL ABOUT music making an appearance into books. I think it just adds another dimension to a story.
LOL YEP. If a book is based on a folklore, or even has its own folklore, I am THERE. I love stories within stories. I just love stories.
- Reading positive depictions of teachers
Teachers get a BAD rep in a lot of books, so when I come across a book where there’s positive representation of teacher/teacher figures, it makes me so happy. (This is a whole other blog post I could write about teacher representation in YA novels… but we’ll leave that for another day!)
Let’s be real, that doesn’t even scrape the surface of the things I love about books, but it was the first 6 that came to my fingertips as I typed.
I’d love to know your 6 bookish loves! Don’t forget to link to me and use the hashtag #SixforSunday if you’re sharing on twitter. I love seeing the #SixforSunday love spreading around the place!
See you next week!

I agree with so many of your bookish loves! I have a soft spot for a bit of romance, although I can get impatient with it if there’s too much!
Magic, folklore and potions are also sure-fire favourites for me! And positive depictions of teachers are so rare…it can really spoil a book for me when there is a bullying teacher in it!
I definitely agree with the magic and folklore! You’ve got me thinking about teacher rep. now too…
I went a bit awry with my first #s4s of the year, but at least I got it written this week & I’ll be on better form next week!
Ooh I love this! I love a bit of magic and other-worlds in books.
Looking forward to your post about teacher representation 😀
