June 2021 – Let’s Talk Bookish

Buenos dias, friends! Welcome back to the blog. Today, we’re sharing the LTB topics for June. We decided to post the topics about 3 weeks before the start of the month so that if you’d like to plan or pre-schedule your posts, you can have the topics available early enough.

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme hosted by me and Dani @ Literary Lion, where we discuss certain topics, share our opinions, and spread the love by visiting each other’s posts.

Many thanks to Jillian and Krupali for suggesting the topics that we’re using this month. If you’d like to suggest a topic, you can do so using this form. We’d also love to hear your feedback on LTB, so if you haven’t already, share your thoughts using this form.

Without further ado, let’s get started!

Toxic Relationships in Books – Let’s Talk Bookish

Hey friends! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week. Once again, I am back with this week’s Let’s Talk Bookish post. Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme hosted by me and Dani @ Literary Lion, where we discuss certain topics, share our opinions, and spread the love by visiting each other’s posts.

Today’s topic is: Tacking Toxic Relationships in Literature (suggested by Mikaela @ Mikaela Reads)

Many thanks to Mikaela for suggesting this topic! I hadn’t really thought about toxic relationships and their impact until Mikaela suggested the topic, but I do have some opinions on the subject.

So, without further ado, let’s get started!

I Think Muslim Rep Is Important, But I Understand Why Some Muslims Don’t Want to Read It

The other day, I was recommending a book with Muslim representation to my sister and she said she wasn’t interested. My dad overheard and was really curious as to why she wouldn’t want to read Muslim rep when she’d read anything else out there.

It was kind of hard to explain. I know why she doesn’t like it, and I don’t blame her for not liking it, but I didn’t know how to explain that.

It’s just one of those things that you just get, you know?

Sigh. Yes, I know, you don’t really know, and that’s why I’m going to try and articulate what the problem is with Muslim-rep books out there.

Reading and Mental Health – Let’s Talk Bookish

Good morning. I hope you’re all doing well. It’s another Friday, another Let’s Talk Bookish, this time concerning the relationship between books and mental health. As always, Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, hosted by me and Dani @ Literary Lion, where we discuss certain topics, share our opinions, and spread the love by visiting each other’s posts.

As I said, today’s topic is: How Reading Affects Mental Health (suggested by Kristin @ Lukten Av Trykksverte)

Before we get started, I did want to share once again the LTB feedback form that I posted last week. It’s completely anonymous, and will only take you a minute to fill out, so please do share your suggestions and general feedback on how LTB is doing for you. Thank you!

Also, I didn’t do last Friday’s topic (what makes you pick up a book; thank you to Rafaela for suggesting it!), partly because I feel like I’ve talked about it quite a bit, and partly because I got busy and just forgot about it, so my apologies. I’ll be including the linkup for that down below with this week’s participants as well.

And I think that’s all for announcements. So, let’s get started!
