Should Books Have Content Ratings? – Let’s Talk Bookish

Hey friends, welcome back! Today, I’m doing last Friday’s Let’s Talk Bookish discussion. 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.

This Friday’s topic was: Should Books Have Content Ratings? (Dani)

This is Dani’s topic for the month, and it’s an interesting question that I haven’t really thought of before. I feel like books kind of do already have content ratings, but it just isn’t on the level of the ratings for movies/tv shows.

Without further ado, let’s get started!

Good morning, friends! I hope you’re all doing well. 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.

Today’s topic is: What Makes a Good Sequel? (suggested by M.T. Wilson @ The Last Book on the Left)

I’d like to take a moment and appreciate M.T. She’s been participating in LTB for a long time, and I’m always so happy to see her wonderful suggestions. Thank you so much for being a part of the LTB family!

Considering that I tend to read a lot of series or books with a sequel, I do have certain expectations for what should happen in the next book. 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.
