Let’s talk bookish is a weekly meme, created and hosted by Rukky @Eternity Books , here different topics will be discussed.
This week’s topic is ‘should we read more serious books?’
The short answer: No, you should read what ever you want! If the only thing you want to read is YA fantasy, then go ahead!
I do think it is important to read about certain topics to learn more about things we don’t know much about! But you should only do that if you want to of course!
I mainly read SFF books, and a have a great time doing that. But I have made it a goal this year, and last year to read more non-fiction. My goal is to read 5 non-fiction books, which compared to the total amount of bokos I read in a year is not that much. The reason why I made this goal is because I want to educate myself more on topics that I feel like I don’t know much about.
This goal is not to force myself to read non-fiction even though I don’t want to. Because I do want to read them, I just don’t gravitate towards them quickly. And since I made this a goal in the beginning of the year I want to be able to cross it off at the end of the year haha!
In case you want to know, so far this year I’ve read two, and at the moment of writing this I’m in the middle of a third one, so things are going great.
I do count biographies etc as non-fiction books as well! No idea if that is how you’re supposed to categorize them, but whatever!
Back in March I did a Top Ten Tuesday post about non-fiction books that I want to read, it will be linked here!
Some that I recommend:
- Becoming by Michelle Obama
- Dear girls by Ali Wong
- Know my name by Chanel Miller
- The five by Hallie Rubenhold
I now realize these are all biographies haha! But I hope you will like them if you read them!
