Good morning and welcome to Let’s Talk Bookish! Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, created and hosted by me, where we discuss chosen topics, share our opinions, and spread the love by visiting each other’s posts.
Today’s topic is: Should readers read books that aren’t for their target age? (suggested by Aria @ Book Nook Bits)
Many thanks to Aria for suggesting! Currently, I’m a mess, and I didn’t have any time to write this post, but in a nutshell, I think that you should read whatever you want to read. But you should also keep in mind, especially if you’re reading books that are for people younger than you, that the age also matters when you’re writing a review. So don’t go off and say that a mystery book written for the 8 year old age range was the most cliche and easy to solve thing you’ve ever read, because it’s aimed for 8 year olds, not an adult.

This Week’s Participants:
I plan on getting my blogging life back together over this weekend, so wish me luck! What do you think about reading books that are not for your age range? Do you think that they should be reviewed differently? Do you think it’s fair for someone older to be reviewing a kids book, when they aren’t a kid? Especially when it’s a negative review?
