God I love a good horror novel. I’m a massive Lovecraft fan racism notwithstanding ofc

And who doesn’t love a bit of fantasy? :heart_eyes:

Racism nonwithstanding, of course.

Because let’s not lie: Fantasy has been pretty racist until recently.

And I don’t mean it’s not inclusive. I mean they literally often portrayed POCs as savage and evil

Literature in general. Heart of Darkness is someone’s un-ironic favourite book and that worries me

And as much as I prefer Tolkien to Martin, Game of Thrones is much better in the way it represents race than the whole if Tolkien’s work.

But Tolkien is a man of his time, so I don’t hate him for it (even though it’s kinda bad that the tribes of black men are all evil)

But I don’t even just mean Tolkien. Rowling, too! We all know I love Harry Potter, but she can get so annoying. It was fine when you didn’t have every single race, ethnicity, sexuality and religion in your stories. If you wanted to be “woke”, you could have just said “I wasn’t really thinking about representation back then. Not many white authors were. But in the future, I’ll be more aware of it”. Otherwise you could have just shut up.

But she has to go on an on about how actually Hermione was black. Woman, you had so much control over the casting of the characters. If you wanted them to cast a black person, you could have. Just like with Dean Thomas.

The Dumbledore thing makes sense because what kid knows their headmaster’s sexuality? I mean, Harry didn’t even know he had a brother or sister!

The fact that Cho Chang’s name is just two surnames put together is hilarious to me. It shows how little thought she put into naming her compared to some of the other characters xD

The only one that bothers me is Lavender Brown getting recast as white as soon as she gets a speaking role

I’m surprised you put Dystopian on here! It’s easy to forget about as a genre :open_mouth:

I like the concept of Harry Potter but I tried watching the movies and reading it and I can’t help but get bored. I feel it could have been portrayed in a more better and interesting way.

I disagree. It’s exciting and wonderful to me! From halfway through chapter 1 of the first book all the way to the end :heart_eyes:

I am an absolute sucker for mystery/detective novels. When I was little, I read the entire ‘Murder Most Ladylike’ series in a week, one book per day :joy::joy:

I’d say I mostly read drama, comedy, horror and fantasy. My favourite would probably be drama
