Hi Mary. Why can't people just read books they like without others saying it's problematic or not? Like I just want to read it. I don't want to get into a damn essay on why it has problems; I don't even care if it does. I'm not looking for flaws when I read; I'm looking to escape.
READ WHATEVER YOU WANT
LIFE IS TOO SHORT
Honestly. Yes, it’s important to learn, to acknowledge the problematic things, but it’s also important to read books that offer you escape. It’s okay to enjoy a problematic book if the good parts in it are important to you or have made a difference in your life.
Literature isn’t perfect and imo, it shouldn’t be. Its lack of perfection is what triggers debates and discussions and it would honestly be very boring if everyone liked the same perfect books. Also, books = fiction and liking something bad in fiction doesn’t make you a bad person. We all have villains we love, that doesn’t mean we aspire to be like them in real life.
Idk, just read what you want <3
