I’ve been going through my huge list of pending tags, trying to pick something for this week and it felt like the perfect time to ramble and present before the Internet all of my unpopular opinions! (Who doesn’t like to do that?!)
Thank you, Ida@CassiopeiasMoon for tagging me! (it was quite a long time ago) But I am finally here to give my very controversial answers. Her reading tastes are the best! Make sure to check out her blog and also the Unpopular Opinions Book Tag.
A Popular book or book series that you didn’t like
I am sorry everyone, but the whole «A Court of Thorns and Roses» series. Too cheesy for my taste and just not for me. To be honest I am slightly apprehensive now to carry on reading the «Throne of Glass» series… Hopefully, I will like it better.
A popular book or series that everyone else seem to hate but you love
I know a lot of people that disliked these books, so I will go with these two: «Red Queen» and «Harry Potter and the Cursed Child». There were a lot of controversy about the Red Queen series, but I loved it and I can’t wait to pick up the second book.
An OTP that you don’t like
Ugh, most of them. I never focus on romance and then if I do, they usually just annoy me. So let’s just skip this one and move on to more interesting questions, shall we?
A popular book genre that you hardly reach for
That would be New Adult. I just dislike it very very much, but I see so many people reading it… My question is: What do you like about it?! Please tell me!
A popular beloved character that you don’t like
This might be shocking, but I do not like Hannah Baker! There I said it. «13 Reasons Why» wasn’t a book or a series that I enjoyed and Hannah Baker was one of the main reasons.
A popular author that you can’t seem to get into
Hmm, let me see… Neil Gaiman. I would love to read more of his books at some point, but after reading «Stardust», I was slightly disappointed.
Also, Markus Zusak. After «The Book Thief» I don’t think I will pick up any of his other books. The same goes for John Green.
A popular book trope that you are tired of seeing
Instalove, love triangles and drooling over bad boys. We’ve had enough of that. Why can’t female leads be strong on their own without the need to go all goofy around some guy who treats them badly?! I will never know an answer to this question.
A popular series that you have no interest in reading
This is a difficult one. I usually want to read everything myself to form my own opinion about the book, plus YA covers and synopsis are so difficult not to like!
I guess «Game of Thrones». I read the first and half of the second book, but it was too boring to continue. Besides, the TV show is amazing!
The saying goes «The book is always better than a movie». But what TV show or movie adaptation do you prefer more than the book?
Can I say «Game of Thrones» again? Other than that, «Lord of the Rings» has some sick book to movie adaptations! So does The Hunger Games and Divergent series. And! «The 100». I absolutely LOVED the show!
I would like to tag ALL of you, but that would be impossible and very time consuming, so here are just a few tags, but if you would like to participate or already did this tag, make sure to leave a link to your post in the comments down below so I can check it out!
