  1. a word or phrase, often an item of jargon, that is fashionable at a particular time or in a particular context.

Hey, guys, it’s been awhile so glad to be doing a blog post after a week of silence, hope you are well. As you can see in today’s post I am going to discuss Bookish Buzzwords, it essentially one word that sums up a certain tone or theme about what the book is about. For example, if the blurb states the book is about Friendship or War to kind of pitch and grab the reader’s attention, I have a few of these Buzzwords that I would like to share with you today and if you have any books that are about or have some aspect of these buzzwords do tell me, I am always down for book recommendations😊 keep on reading

The Secret History by Donna Tartt book review

Synopsis

Genre: Contemporary, Modern Classic, Thriller, Literary Fiction

520 pages

β€œBeauty is terror. Whatever we call beautiful, we quiver before it.”

P.S. Lot’s of Tumblr like aesthetic coming your wayΒ 

The story is unlike any mystery I have ever read, enticed by the idea of why the murder took place as opposed to who did it. The popularity of the book is almost similar to the plot, in that you feel left out if you haven’t read it and the obsession surrounding it will make you pick up the book so as to understand why everyone freaking loves it.

A stunning debut novel Β I was in awe of the individual parts of this story that were put together so meticulously to form an overall stunning narrative. It was kind of intimidating when I first acquired it to be honest because of the polarising opinions surrounding it. You either love it or you down right hate it and I lowered my expectations which somehow helped me to see the beauty that this story had to offer.
