It’s finallllllllllllllllllllllllllly time for me to do this tag. I’ve been, well, collecting tags on it for some time, and I have no clue why. I love me some unpopular opinions, and I really have so many, so I mean, this tag is kind of perfect for me? I’m not quite sure how it took me so very long to get it, but it’s here finally and I’m excited.
Thank you so much to the lovely bloggers, Laura @ The Book Corps, Sophie @ Blame Chocolate, and Taiwo @ Stuffed Shelves for tagging me. If you’re looking for some delightful new bloggers to follow that have great reviews and cool tags, check them out because they’re all great and super nice.
A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT YOU DIDN’T LIKE
Oh, gosh, there are farrrrrrrrrrrrr too many. Um, probably Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. I found it okay, but everyone seemed to be in loveeeeeeeeeeeeee with it for such a long time. I could not force myself to read the second one, and I’m just going with the fact that I’m not a fan of it. It just got too cliche?
A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO HATE BUT YOU LOVE
So, not a lot of people hate this one, but I’m always constantly shocked at how low The Summer I Became a Nerd‘s rating is on Goodreads. I love it dearly, and I have seen a few of my blogger friends that I got to read it not love it as much as I have. Maybe there are some flaws in it, but I’m still forever obsessed with it AND THERE ARE ONLY GOOD FEELS TO BE HAD AND I MAY HAVE TOTALLY EMBRACED ALL THE CLICHES. XD
AN OTP THAT YOU DON’T LIKE
Um, Cal and Mare. Was notttttttttttttttttt a fan of them in Red Queen. I kept giving so much side eye to it.
A POPULAR BOOK GENRE THAT YOU HARDLY REACH FOR
Depending on the season, I fall apart on what genres I go with. I find it super hard to get into the mood for contemporaries during the fall/winter, but I read them nonstop in spring/summer. One genre I really don’t read at all anymore is dystopian, and one I barely do is sci-fi.
A POPULAR/BELOVED CHARACTER THAT YOU DO NOT LIKE
I picked on poor baby Elias in my review for An Ember in the Ashes earlier in the week. I know he’s so many people’s book husband, but he was so bleh to me. All the more Elias for everyone else?
A POPULAR AUTHOR THAT YOU CAN’T SEEM TO GET INTO
I’m copying Laura’s answer for this one, and I’m going to say, John Green! I’m really not a fan of his, and I’ve never been one. I tried one of his books, and it was enough for me. I glanced at Turtles All the Way Down a few times, but I just can’t get myself to do it. Sorry all John Green lovers.
A POPULAR BOOK TROPE THAT YOU’RE TIRED OF SEEING
Depending on how certain things are done, I can usually handle certain things. I do enjoy instalove or not mind it as much if it’s nicely done. I really don’t get behind love triangles too much, because I really hate being wrong with the person I choose. Literally, I get so upset when I pick the wrong set of the love triangle. So maybe I’ll go with that one?
A POPULAR SERIES THAT YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN READING
Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. I’m not quite sure. I never say never to reading certain things, because I’m sure I’ll fall in the hype at some point and give it a try. OMIGOSH, WHERE ARE MY SASSY UNPOPULAR OPINIONS RIGHT NOW? I’M SO FAILING.
THE SAYING GOES “THE BOOK IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN THE MOVIE”, BUT WHAT MOVIE OR TV SHOW ADAPTATION DO YOU PREFER MORE THAN THE BOOK?
Surprisingly, The Princess Bride! While the book is super good, I thought that the book dragged on quite a bit more than the movie. The movie was concise and kept all the funny bits closer and strategically timed together.
I’m not going to tag anyone, because I feel like a lot, a lot of people have already done this one, and I don’t want to tag someone again. Plus, I’m kind of feeling lazy. Feel free to tag yourself if you haven’t done it already it and want to share your unpopular opinions which are always great. Also, if you like doing tags, please remind me since I’m trying to get through a lot of mine lately and can’t remember who enjoys.
What do you think? What are some of your unpopular opinions? Do we have any of the same? Let’s discuss in the comments below!
