So, as you can see from the title, today’s blog post will be on the T5w of the week. I know it’s not Wednesday anymore and i’m a little off the supposed date BUT! The important thing is i am here now and i have come to take part in my first T5W.
This week’s topic is on Favourite buzz words, or basically words that are used to describe a book that is a guarantee buy for you. Initially, i had some trouble choosing but eventually, once i got hold of one buzzword, it was hard to narrow it down to just five but i made it work somehow so all’s good. Anyway, before i go totally off topic and start blabbering, i’ll move on with this.
1) Super Powers
I just absolutely LOVE anything that has to do with super powers like normal people discovering they have super powers or finding that their loved one has a super power and stuff like that. Yeah, i just think that it’s so cool and it’s always got me hoping that i, one day, would discover i have super powers too.
(Some examples of these would be any comic really, or any YA books like Miss peregrine’s Home for peculiar children)
I recently read Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe and i just. It gave me so much emotions and made me just fall right into the urge and need to read books that include LGBT main characters and just anything that has to do with it. I love it especially when it’s explicit and not just beating around the bush.
3) Boarding schools / Just school setting in general
I think the first book i read that had a boarding school setting was Malory towers but of course, Hogwarts is one that everyone would know of. I just think that stories set in school are usually very contemporary and all fluffy or just something i can actually relate to because you know, i’m still in school. Not for hogwarts though, i would really love to go there.
4) Dark/Heavy topics
By dark or heavy topic, i mean those that deal with tough issues that happen in real life like,
depression, r*pe, suicide and etc. I don’t think i’ve read much books that center around a dark or heavy topic but i think that as a person who has gone through these stuff, i can actually relate to and sympathize with the characters involved and etc. I just think that so much of the characters i have read are all able-bodied and have completely perfect mental health despite the setting they are in that sometimes it gets hard to relate, if you catch my gist. It’s also really nice to have some spotlight on these issues and potentially help those who can relate to it.
And finally, the last but not the least,
5) Magical Realism
I love magical realism and there’s really not much to say about this one other than that. I mean, a reason on why i love to read so much is because i love the aspect of escaping reality to go into a completely different world and magical realism stories just give me so much of that so, yes. (if you’re wondering why this gif, it’s because it’s a kind of symbol of the raven cycle)
That’s all i have for today and i’m sorry if it’s pretty short because i’m kinda tired, it’s been a long day, and an even longer one tomorrow, but i hope you guys have enjoyed reading this! Feel free to share below your favorite buzz words are.
