I was tagged by Erika in Bookventureland (Awesome book blog – go check it out!) I have been wanting to do this tag for SO long!! Y’ll have seen my reviews! I’m the Queen of Unpopular Opinions lol. I’m known for writing very honest reviews.
With that said, I want to remind everyone that we are not always going to agree on something and that is totally okay. That’s what makes each and every single one of us unique. These are just my opinions on particular books. I’m not discouraging anyone from reading any of the books listed here. In fact, I encourage you to read them and decide for yourselves.
Alrighty then, enough of that. Let’s get this tag rolling!
Popular book or series you didn’t like:
These books are extremely long and I didn’t like the first one. I couldn’t get into it. I put it down, tried again several months later with the same result. I’ve only gotten a little more than halfway through. I got ahead of myself and purchased the first three books and I haven’t even finished the first one and don’t see that happening any time soon.
A popular book or series that everyone seems to hate, but you love:
This is one of my favorite books! I was taken aback by how many people hated it. I think this is one of the few times that I was actually rooting for the villain in the story and I’m not talking about Nick 😉
A love triangle where the main character ended up with the person you did NOT want them to end up with OR an OTP that you don’t like:
This one is tricky, because although I was initially rooting for Guy #1, about halfway through the series I started rooting for Guy #2. Which is kind of funny since I hated Guy #2 for many reasons, but then I sort of fell in love with him…. yeah, that doesn’t sound weird at all.
A popular book genre that you hardly reach for:
Historical fiction is a genre that I tend to avoid like the plague. I have tried reading a few books in that genre – books that were highly rated and praised – alas, I couldn’t stand them. I figure this genre is just not for me…
A popular or beloved character that you do not like:
I loved this book, but this character was so self-absorbed and disgraceful.
A popular author you can’t seem to get into:
I’m gonna go with Holly Black. So many people rave about her books, but I just don’t like her style of writing. It’s not that it’s bad – it just doesn’t sit well with me <shrugs>
A popular book trope that you’re tired of seeing (Examples, “lost princess”, corrupt ruler, love triangles, etc)
There are so many, but I’ll go with the whole idea of falling in love with your stepbrother. I haven’t read any of those books, but just because one author got popular for writing that plot, suddenly EVERYONE is jumping on the bandwagon. I’m so sick and tired of seeing my Amazon page littered with those books. Stepbrother this and Stepbrother that. Talk about a lack of originality…
A popular series that you have no interest in reading:
I know I’m going to get so much hate for this, but I just have no interest in reading these books whatsoever. I have seen them time and time again at the library or at the bookstore and I ALWAYS choose something else.
The saying goes “The book is always better than the movie”, but what movie or T.V show adaptation do you prefer more than the book?
I LOVED the movie! Maybe I’m a bit biased since I saw the movie before reading the book, but I found the book to be a huge disappointment. I found it pretty boring and overloaded with a bunch of details that really didn’t matter much. It was just “meh”.
I tag all of my followers!! 🙂 I’m really too lazy to individually tag you all so there you go lol.
