Any Times/Generic/Go-To’s/Branding

Next Month’s …

  • YA Releases
  • Kidlit Realeases
  • By Genre (fantasy, sci fi, memoir, contemporary)
  • Pre-orders

Best of the Season/Year

Probably best at the change of seasons and the end of the year. What books would we all add to this list?

*Read-a-like*

If you loved BLA then you’ll love BLA. We could also adapt these to TV shows.

Buddy Read

Read the same book as another blogger and then post your discussion!

Your Take on an Adaptation

Shadowhunters blows. But I hated the books too. A blog post by Jess. But in all seriousness, follow an adpatation, movie or TV and write up your thoughts. Are you livid? Are you pleased? Is the direction they’re taking a good one?

Dream Casting

How would you accurately cast upcoming YA adaptations? Or-how would you cast an adaptiation that hasn’t been though of yet?

*Book Club Post*

Best at the beginning of the month, make up discussion questions and analysis of the book.

Book Recs for…

  • Fictional Characters
  • Occupations
  • Tie in to pop culture when poossible

*A Reading Hack*

What’s a way to make reading easier? Maybe impromptu book marks post. Some times joking. Sometimes how to prioritize your TBR or clean up your shelves.

*Resource/Round Up Post*

A list of links. Pick some categories and go for it.

The Best Books You Don’t Own/Never Read

Any books you’re head over heels for that you’ve never picked up? Or that you borrowed from someone and refused to give back?

*Booktionary!*

Draw some bad pictures or find some some aesthetics online and post a collage and ask readers to guess which book you’re talking about! Or make an ambiguous list about the book.

Could use this as a giveaway post!

*Holiday Posts*

A post tied to a holiday. Duh.

*Recipe Post*

Recipes inspired by books.

Soundtrack

Create a soundtrack for a book. Make a Spotify account a post the playlist!

Books You’ve Been Ashamed to Read

We all have a guilty pleasure. Maybe it’s watching Shadowhunters, maybe it’s crafting mysteries (I shit you knot, they exist).

Confessions

For example: I dog ear pages. I am a monster.

For other example: I don’t like X-popular-series

*Reading Challenge*

We really should make one.

What have you learned by reviewing?

As reviewers, we look for different things in books. And as writers we add to that. How does blogging about books add to your expertise?

*Marathon*

Let’s host a seasonal read-a-thon. Or monthly. It could be a weekend at the end of the month-everybody read for 24 hours straight. Or watch a full series adaptation.

*Epic Numbered List*

50-100 itemed list. You’re top 100 books. Pet peeves in fiction.

Your Year in Reading

Create an infographic representing what you’ve read in teh last year. How much in which genre? Number of pages? We could do one collectively.

Book Spine Poetry

Organize your books and create beautiful prose.

QUESTIONS!

  • It’s the dead of winter and you are escaping to a tropical location. Hours in the sun with a book are on your “to-do” list. What book do you bring with you?
  • You see the first signs of spring and your heart beats faster with the thought of warmer days. You are escaping for a nice cruise to herald in the warm weather. What book do you bring to accompany you on the decks of the ship?
  • Summer has arrived! You spend your weekends camping in the mountains. Fresh air, trees, animals, and campfires keep you company on your outing. What book do you bring to read next to the sound of the flowing creek?
  • Fall is approaching. Nothing makes your happier than crunchy leaves turning red and orange and purple. You bring a book to the local park to read on a bench under the whispering trees. What book do you read?
  • Christmas is in the air. Lights, and carolers, and shopping. You want to curl up next to the fireplace with a good book that reminds you of comfort. What do you curl up with?
  • Winter lasts sooooo long. You need something to remind you that the sun will come out again. What book to you read to take you away on the vacation you wish you were going on?

Pick three books (use the random setting on your goodreads shelf) and pick one to burn, one to fix, and one to re-live.

You’re Not Good Enough

This tag was created by ReadLikeWildfire and Beccathebookreviewer. Write down 30 character names on pieces of paper, put them in a bowl/cup/jar/black hole, and then choose two at random for every question. Your job after you’ve picked your two champions, is to decide which one of them fits the question/situation, and which one isn’t “good enough”.

  1. You only have one more spot on your Spelling B team, who would you pick to complete your team?
  2. Both characters want to kill you, which one would you kill first so you have a better chance of surviving?
  3. You’re on the bachelor/bachelorette an you’re down to these two characters, which one are you going to give your rose too?
  4. You’ve been chosen for the Hunger Games, who would most likely volunteer in your place?
  5. You’re stranded on an island. Which character would you sacrifice to engage in cannibalism?
  6. You’re the next DC/Marvel superhero (with your own tv show of course), who is your sidekick?
  7. You’re a manager of an Avocado admiring company, who would you fire for lack of communication skills?
  8. You’ve just finished a book in which your favorite character dies, which character is most likely to comfort you?
  9. Ugh, it’s high school. Who would most likely be part of the popular clique?
  10. The day has arrived; you’re finally a year older! Who would have the nerve to forget your birthday?
  11. You’ve just found an upcoming booktube star? Who would most likely be?
  12. Sleepover time! Unfortunately you can only invite one person, who would you invite?
  13. Bam, you’re pregnant. Who’s the father/mother?
  14. You’ve just written a super important text. Who would ‘see’ it, but not reply?
  15. You’ve just woken up and it’s time for breakfast. Your mum’s been replaced by..who?!
