Read all about it…

milesThis is a little heads up.

Tough Travel is back!

Travelling through the tropes of fantasy is tough – it really is (the hint is in the title after all), but, pack up your spotted hanky, dig out your maps, tote your packs with dried beef, hard cheese and lembas bread because  we are once again embarking on our travels.

You may recall Tough Travel.  It was the brainchild of Fantasy Review Barn and was a very popular meme.  Fantasy Faction will now be picking up the mantle so keep an eye open for the initial post which is due any day now (the 1st of April I believe).

Basically, Tough Travel is a meme that looks at the tropes of fantasy.  Each month we will explore a specific trope where we all get to highlight specific books that we love that represent the particular theme for that month.  Tropes are tropes for a reason after all and this gives us a chance to display some of our favourite novels in a perfect forum for discussion. So, come and join in.

See you all soon I hope.

    Really excited! Recently I was looking back our past themes, thinking about how there were so many I wish I could do again…now looks like I’ll get my chance 🙂

      I know, me too. I was thinking about it myself just recently so this is such good news. Plus, once a month means we won’t use up the topics quite as quickly.

    Oh that sounds cool. I’ll look out for those posts to see if I can get some great book recs off them.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes – and hopefully you’ll take part too and give us all your cool ideas on the topics. These are only planned for once a month so hopefully plenty of time to come up with some great books.

        I’m considering to take part and I will if I can think up enough books for the topics.

      • @lynnsbooks

        Excellent. 😀

    Yay 😀 I used enjoy taking part in Tough Travel, but just as I was getting into it, it stopped! Great to hear its coming back.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I know – I’m really happy about it – and it’s once a month so we’ll have longer to come up with our thoughts.

    That’s great news! I enjoyed that meme very much, so I’m glad it’s getting another chance at firing up our imagination! 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Cool – and hopefully you’ll take part? Yes? It’s just once a month so plenty of time in between for coming up with some good books.

    I’m excited to get back to it soon! Still brainstorming ideas though…mostly because I want to pick something original. That’s the truly tough part of Tough Travelling, if I recall!

    I love the sound of this one…

    • @lynnsbooks

      Excellent – you should definitely take part. It’s a really good fun meme. Lots of people were involved in the original and will probably take part again and it’s only once a month so plenty of time to think about your book or books.
