Let’s Talk Bookish – Serious Books

Good morning ladies and gentlemen! I hope you’ve had a great week! Today, we’re doing another discussion for Let’s Talk Bookish. Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, hosted by me @ Eternity Books & 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: Should We Read More Serious Books? (suggested by Ruqs @ Many Things Bookish)

I really don’t have much to say about this, and I honestly just don’t know/have an opinion. I don’t normally read serious books, so I don’t have any suggestions. I would also say just read what you like. I don’t see why COVID should make you read more serious books. So, I’ll just leave the questions below, and I’m curious to see what you guys have to say about this!


As a result of COVID-19, do you think we should read more serious books (nonfiction, biographies etc)?

Do you normally read “serious books”?

What are some of your nonfiction book suggestions that we can learn from during self-isolation?

This Week’s Participants:

Rian @ Dogs And Books | M.T. @ The Last Book on the Left | Dani @ Literary Lion | Evelyn @ Evelyn Reads

What do you guys think on this topic? Have you been reading more serious books? Do you like “serious” books? What do you think of the new chat/sign off image? How’s your week been? Chat with me in the comments below!

  1. For me, I like to read a mix of things. Of course I like to read more serious books on occasion, but I also want to read books that make me smile and laugh. Especially when the world around me is serious, I find myself reading less serious books.

  2. Read what you like is definitely the most important thing!
    I did make it a goal this year to read 5 non-fiction, and I’m liking the ones I’ve read, and I’m pretty sure I will read more 🙂

  3. This is an interesting topic, I don’t really read nonfiction so it’s not something I write about much on my blog usually, so it was fun to talk about something a bit different!

  4. I do like reading non-fiction once in a while 💁‍♀️. And I also enjoy reading islamic books every now and then, which I’d categorise as ‘serious’ 😂🙈. Other than that, not really.
