Reviewing Sequels Without Reading the First book – Let’s Talk Bookish

Good morning!!! Look who’s alive?! Yes, it’s me. I am BACK at least for today my friends and I am very happy that I have a little bit of time to write this post. I know I was gone the past two Fridays and I didn’t even say anything about that or have Dani do the linkup (sorry!) but I’ve just had too much on my plate and blogging fell away for a time.

Anyhow, we are here, and it is Friday, and of course, we shall have a lovely discussion today. For those of you that don’t know, Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, hosted by me & 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 you review a sequel, without reading the first book? (Dani)

This is an awesome topic, so thank you to Dani for suggesting it! As far as I’m concerned, the very short and very simple answer to this is No, but I am not a “very short and simple answer” kind of girl, so let’s discuss.

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!

Let’s Talk Bookish – The Hype Train | ft. my thoughts on the peer pressure

Good morning friends!! Welcome to another Let’s Talk Bookish post! 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: The Hype Train

This topic is super interesting because there are so many aspects related to the Hype Train, from hyped books to peer pressure, and all the feelings and issues that arise from it. I might write another post on this topic because there were some other questions that I didn’t get to answer.

Unapologetically Muslim Reading Challenge // ft. me signing up for my fourth challenge of the year

Am I going to survive these 4 challenges?

Probably not. But I’m determined to do so. Otherwise, I’ll be beyond super disappointed with myself.


Hey there amigos!! Welcome back. I hope you’re all having a wonderful day!

Today, I’ll be signing up for the Unapologetically Muslim Reading Challenge that is being hosted by the lovely Noura @ The Perks of Being Noura.

Lately, I’ve been wanting to read more books by Muslim authors, but I haven’t really started reading them or consciously seeking them out. But this reading challenge is hopefully gonna change that!

Let’s Talk Bookish – Book Fandoms

Hello, and welcome to another Let’s Talk Bookish post! 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: Book Fandoms

Many thanks to Dani @ Literary Lion for suggesting this topic! I don’t have much to say about this because I don’t think I am part of a book fandom. But there are still some perks to being a part of one.

First of all, I haven’t read a really popular series that has such a widespread fandom.

And the few that I have, I don’t know if I would say that I’m a part of that book’s fandom. I like the book, but I don’t talk about it as much, and I’m not as invested in it as other people are.

Honestly, the question for me is this: what makes a book fandom? What makes a person part of a book fandom? Is it automatic aka if you like the book, then you’re a part of it?

Or is there more to it like, you go to all the author’s events, you scream about the book everywhere, you have clothes, mugs, book sleeves, book marks, etc. with things related to the book?

If it’s the second one, then no. I am definitely not part of any book fandom, and I think I prefer it that way.

Sure, I love books, and I love some more than others, but I feel like sometimes, people overdo and are super extra about it. Which is kind of hypocritical I guess because I like seeing other people be a part of it, and there are benefits to fandoms. You get fan art, fan fiction (though I steer clear of that), and there’s something really sweet and amazing about seeing others be super invested in a book that they love.

That’s the best part of fandoms to be honest. Seeing how much people love books.

Maybe one day I’ll be a part of one.

But for now, I’m content just watching everyone else come together to celebrate the books that they love.
