This weeks topic is: Should You Review A Sequel?
This weeks topic is about if people should review a sequel to a book when they haven’t read the first book, I believe. I didn’t even know this was a thing! :O
I personally do not think someone should request and review a sequel to a book when they have not read the first one. I think this can cause bias. People might dislike the book because they don’t know what is going on because they didn’t read the first one. I don’t think this is fair to the first book or even to the author.
I do think it is okay if it’s a companion novel. For example, you don’t have to read Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins in order to enjoy the companion novel Lola and the Boy Next Door. It’s cool because you know who the characters are but it’s not necessary at the same time, if that makes sense? XD
What do you think? Do you think people should request and review sequels if they haven’t read the first book? Let me know down below 😀
