The Book Nook Weekly Discussion

Welcome to the Book Nook! This is the weekly thread for Avocados to discuss books we’re currently reading, recommendations, genre, and serious literary criticism.

This week’s recommended discussion: We’ve recently talked about synopsis keywords that turn us off and tropes we actually love, but now let’s talk about synopses that pull us in. What descriptions, words, or phrases have grabbed your attention? What word is total catnip to you?
Hat tip to MLA.

Settle into your favorite chair, and let’s celebrate the written word. One caveat: because we’re here to use our words, this is a NO GIF/YouTube/social media embed zone (the OTs are full of clutter, and I want to keep that out of this thread).

upcoming topics:
11/15: care and feeding of your books (pictures encouraged!)
11/22: thankful for
11/29: movies and docs about writers (h/t a quiet storm)
thereafter: recycled topics from last year, holiday-themed topics, EOY business
