Thursday's Discussion (3)

This is going to be based on a book I read today, it got me thinking and since I still haven't read the fanfiction by Cassandra Clare yet I decided to go for this. In case you're wondering the book was called Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma

The Question for the Week 

What themes are you willing to read? What themes go too far? Like drugs, incest, suicide, rape, gay rights, racism and so forth.




I personally am willing to give just about anything a try. With a few major exceptions, I won't touch anything with racism because it bothers me so much. I hate that this is even a thing still! We are all people, we are the same. Period. Those narrow minded people who can't see that disgust me!


But I don't mind to read about drugs. I've read some Ellen Hopkins books and they are heavy on the drug use. As a person who had been touched by the drug culture (quite a few of my family members), I relate to these books, I see the users and their lives falling apart but then I know what it's also like for the family. It's not easy to watch someone you love slowly die or turn into someone else.


As for the other things I don't mind reading about them either though suicide makes me very sad to read about and I usually stay away from it. Rape makes me angry and want to beat up the rapist. Incest.... I was so torn between being grossed out and wanting them to be together so much. Yeah, weird feelings.



So that's it buttercups! Tell me below what themes and such you can read and the ones you just won't touch. I look forward to seeing your answers!
