Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m doing the Unpopular Opinions Book Tag! Before we began just a reminder these are my opinions and I’m not trying to offend anyone. I’m sorry! I haven’t done a tag in a while so let’s began!
#1: A popular book or series that everyone loves but you
There is a lot I could put for this question like Divergent, Little Monsters, 13 Reasons Why but I think I have to go with Six of Crows and Shadow and Bone.
……. I’M SORRY! I really want to love these books and I don’t hate them, I just don’t love them as much as the rest of the world does. I liked Shadow and Bone but I didn’t like the rest of the books so that me made change my opinion on how I feel about the series as a whole and I’ve tried so many times to read Six of Crows and I always come out not as in love with it as the rest of the world is. I don’t know! Maybe I should listen to the audiobook because I’ve heard good things about that.
#2: A book or series that you love but everyone else hates
This should be easy to guess but I’m going with Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard!
I loved this book! My Aunt got me this an arc of this book so I got to read it before everyone else did and I loved it! I thought that this was so much better then the first book and then everyone else read this book and they all didn’t like. They liked it but they thought the first book was so much better. I don’t know.
#3: A book with a love triangle and the protagonist ends up with the wrong person
*SPOILERS! This is one is very easy as I was so upset by this that I started crying. My pick for this question is Conrad and Belly in We Will Always Have Summer by Jenny Han!
I really enjoyed books one and two in this trilogy but then book three comes along and I really hate these books now because of what she did in book three. I hate Conrad, he is such an ass and treats Belly like she is nothing and abandons her. He is the worst. Jeremiah on the other hand was great. He treated her right, he respected her, he was just the better choice in my opinion. The second book ends with them getting together and in the third book Jenny Han destroys his character just to make Conrad look better and so Belly GETS WITH HIM!!!! I was so mad I just started crying because I hated Conrad so fucking much! I really want to pretend like this book doesn’t exist.
#4: A popular author you just can’t get into
I try to give everyone a chance but an author I’ve given like three chances to is Sarah Dessen. I’ve read third of her books and I can’t remember any of them. They all seem interesting and deep but in reality they are these fluff pieces that are like Hallmark movies and I just don’t like them. Everyone loves her though and I’m just like is there a book by her that is amazing? It’s not the three books I’ve read by her.
#5: A genre that you rarely reach for
In this order sci-fi, romance books, and dystopian. I want to read more sci- fi I just don’t know where to start. Romance books have honestly just become the same and I can’t get into them. They are the worst. Dystopian novels are okay I honestly just feel like it was a phase in time that’s over now. Also they all started to feel the same.
#6: A book character that everyone loves but you can’t stand
I’m going with Jacob Black from Twilight and Chaol from Throne of Glass!
They are both so annoying and they are the worst and I just want them to both go away! Chaol is rude and the worse and I don’t know why everyone likes him. How can you like him when you have someone like Dorian in the picture? How? Jacob is just so annoying. People say he is better for Bella but he is just as worse. He is just like ‘Bella why are hanging out with Edward!’ ‘Bella why don’t you love me?’ ‘Bella stop dating him!’ and I’m like shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up!
#7: A trope you are tired of seeing
I want to say love triangles because they are the worst but since everyone has probably said that I’m going with is douchebag with a heart of gold or abusive relationships being marked as romantic and real. Basically a bad boy character who treats the main lead like shit and is controlling and gets jealous but then they are secretly deep and kind and everyone loves him. I hate this trope. So much. Ladies if a guy treats you terribly and gets jealous a lot it’s not a healthy relationship! Can’t we just have a nice boy be our love interest? Honorable mentions for this questions are slut shaming, siblings sleeping together, underage drinking, and the chosen one.
#8: A popular series you have no interest in reading
I give everything a chance but a book that I started and won’t finish it or the series is the Bone Season by Samantha Shannon!
Okay I did give this a try but unfortunately the setting of this book was the something that caused me to stop. It is in just something I couldn’t get by which kind of upsetting because the world sounds cool. People have also gone and said that the setting where this book takes place is also something that is a negative for them. Also in the parts that I have read, it did some think the main girl was going to have a unhealthy relationship which I did not want. If you want to read this book I won’t stop you.
#9: The say goes “The book is better then the movie”, but what movie or TV do you think is better then the book?
It took me while to pick out one but I then I remember one of my favorite movie is based off a book and that is Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist!
Honorable mention is Ballet Shoes. I do love this book but I just connected with this movie more then I did with the book. The movie is a lot more funny and it handed the humor and storylines a little better then the book did. I was just more entertained by this movie more then book which is sad because David Levithan co wrote the book and I love him, he is my favorite author.
#10: A book adaption that everyone loves but you
I made this question up because I wanted to do it. It sort of goes with this tag so just stick with me right now. I have two choices for this one and I bet you can guess which one of them is. I’m going with Twilight and Thirteen Reasons Why!
Everyone loves this adaption and I just don’t. I have a whole review for 13 Reasons Why talking about why I hated it so you can read that here and I was going to do a review talking about the Twilight film but then WordPress like deleted it and I got lazy and decided not to rewrite. They are both so bad in different ways. 13 Reasons Why deals with hard topic but it deals with it in the wrong ways and it’s all over the place. Twilight is badly acted, the effects are really bad, and they made the characters so awkward. I just don’t like them. I’m sorry if you like them.
