February 2022 – Let’s Talk Bookish

Hello friends, welcome back! Today, I’m sharing the topics for February 2022.

My apologies for this post being late. I was not prepared and couldn’t get it out in time. Hopefully this is a one time occurrence, and the topics for March will be on time as usual.

I have yet to update the LTB page with all the links for November/December’s topics since I’ve been MIA for a while, but I will get to that soon. I will also add January and February’s topics once I get the chance.

In case you’re new to this meme:

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. Join in on this meme by writing your own discussion on the topic, and sharing your link using the inLinkz that will be available on Dani’s blog each Friday.

We’ve got four awesome topics, all brought to us by wonderful bloggers in the community, so thank you very much to them. If you’d like to share a topic, you can do so using the Google Form that will be available below.

Without further ado, let’s get started!

February 4: Problematic Tropes in Books (Ele @ Ele’s Bookish Corner)

Prompts:  There are many problematic tropes out there. The entire genre of horror is notoriously full of ableism, romance choke-full of sexism, and fantasy dripping in racial stereotypes. What are the boundaries for their usage? Is it OK to use problematic tropes if you repurpose them to be otherwise? Can they be “reclaimed” in the way some people reclaim offensive terms?


February 11: Topics that Can’t/Shouldn’t be Represented in Fiction (Mikaela @ Mikaela Reads)

Prompts: Are there certain topics that can’t or shouldn’t be represented in fiction? If so, why shouldn’t they be? Do you think problematic/controversial issues in society should remain strictly part of the real world, or should they be explored in fiction? Should the ability to write about problematic or controversial topics be limited to certain people?


February 18: Changing Book Ratings/Reviews (Nicole @ Thoughts Stained With Ink)

Prompts: Do you ever change your rating/review for a book? When or why would you consider doing so? Do you think people should be allowed to change their ratings/reviews? Is it important to make it known what the previous rating/review was if you’re changing it?


February 25: The Difference Between Books Addicts and Book Lovers (Jillian @ Jillian The Bookish Butterfly)

Prompts: First of all, how do you define a book addict and a book lover? Which one are you? What are the differences between the two? Do you think that being a book addict is harmful for a person? Are there merits to being a book addict vs a book lover?

Even if you don’t participate by writing LTB discussions, we’d still love to hear any suggestions you might have. We’re always accepting topics, so you can share your ideas using the google form below!

While I update the LTB page, you can find the rest of January’s topics here.

I have a couple of posts in the works, one of which is going to address the future of this blog and my plans for it going forward. If I’ve learned anything in 2021, it’s that I need to make some changes to the way I’m approaching this if I want my blog to have any future at all.

Hopefully I’ll finish that post soon. Uni is starting again on Monday, so who knows, my plans might just be thrown out the window again.

sigh. all my positive, optimistic vibes have deserted me today 🤦🏾‍♀️

Until next time,
