Songs I Associate with Books

There are some songs that I automatically associate with certain books or series. As someone who used to constantly make fanmixes on 8tracks (before it went toย ๐Ÿ’ฉ), I like seeking out songs that fit books. I also find it fascinating as toย why people pick certain songs for certain books. I am going to be sharing some songs I associate with books whether it beย because of fanmixes or mere coincidence.ย Read More »

Introduction to Short Story Sundays

I “discovered” Short Stories back in 2015. I ended up reading a ton of them to meet my Goodreads Reading challenge, found some amazing ones, and have been reading them ever since.

I am alwaysย amazed at how under appreciated short stories are in the book community. There are so many amazing writers out there who are never talked about because they only write short stories. There are also amazing authors whoย in addition to novels, write short stories that you might not even know about. The best part is, you can read nearly every short storyย online for free.

Short Story Sundays are my way of promoting short stories that I love along with their writers. Short Story Sundays can come in the form of genre recommendations, writer spotlights, and much more.ย The exact focus of Short Story Sundays will vary week to week, but they will always be aboutย short stories/their writers. Along with that, I will always give links to read the short stories I’m talking aboutย for free legally (because we all love reading for free), and if available, where to purchase them.

My first Short Story Sunday will be posted this Sunday, and it will be about my absolute favorite short story writer & some of my favorite works by them.

Welcome to Trope Tuesdays!

Next week will be the inaugural Trope Tuesday, but today I want to outline what to expect and what Trope Tuesday is all about.ย 

Trope Tuesday is a meme/tag/series created by yours truly. The goal is to discuss one trope on Tuesdays that you dislike, love, are indifferent to, hate, currently annoyed by, think is problematic, want to kill with fire, or throw out the moon door (a la Petyr Baelish).

Originally, I created Trope Tuesday for myself. I love tropes. If you have seen my Goodreads account, you have probably noticed how I have a ton of shelves dedicated to specific tropes. I find it really fun to identify and discuss tropes, and grow my trope identifying skills. One of the first things I thought of while brainstorming unique content for Lacy Literacy, was a series on tropes. I wanted to make this post to outline how Trope Tuesday are going to work incase anyone else wants to join in on it in the future.

A Trope Tuesday post should include a definition of the trope youโ€™re talking about, books/series that have examples of it (or another form of media if it truly represents that trope more than books you have read do), why you dislike, love, are indifferent to, hate, are currently annoyed by it, think it is problematic, want to kill with fire, or throw out the moon door. You can make Trope Tuesday posts once a month, once a week, or once a whenever depending on your preference.

If you decide to participate in Trope Tuesday, please tell/link me!!! Iโ€™d love to see other people participating.
