S4S – Bookish loves

Hello friends! 

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:

Bookish loves

Yep. Only 6 things I love about books. I’m going to go with characters/plots/genres I love the most. 

  1. 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.
  2. Romance
    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.
  3. 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)
  4. 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.
  5. Folklore/mythology
    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. 
  6. 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!
