The Unpopular Opinion Book Tag


I was tagged by the awesome Carlisa from Confessions of Carlisa to do this The Unpopular Opinion Book Tag. I've been wanting to do this for a while so it came at a good time =)



A POPULAR BOOK OR SERIES THAT YOU DIDN’T LIKE


A POPULAR BOOK THAT EVERYONE HATES BUT YOU LOVE


I hate that people judge these books by the movies! They are really great. I wasn't a huge fan of Breaking Dawn but I still love this series.


A LOVE TRIANGLE WHERE YOUR SHIP DID NOT SAIL



I don't want any spoilers in this post so let's just say that I'm a fan of two ships in this series, and one  was sunk in this book.

A POPULAR GENRE YOU HARDLY REACH FOR


I give you the father of the horror genre, R.L. Stine. A genre that I only read when I have to. I'm such a huge scaredy cat that I won't reach for anything from this genre (even if it's just a sub-genre of a book). 

A BELOVED CHARACTER YOU DIDN'T LIKE


Raven from the Delirium trilogy. I know so many people who adored her while I found her annoying and self-righteous. 

A POPULAR AUTHOR YOU CAN’T GET INTO


Nothing personal against John Green but I just don't love his books as much as everyone else seems to. I read The Fault in Our Stars and though I enjoyed it, something about it didn't make me want to pick up another of his books. I did try to pick up a few of his others but they all just sounded the same to me, so I just decided that Green's books are not for me. 


A POPULAR BOOK TROPE YOU’RE TIRED OF SEEING

I have two tropes that I'm so sick of seeing, and actually wrote a Bookish Pet Peeves guest post about them on Carlisa's blog for the Summer Blogger Tour

They are:

Insta-love


You've known that person for all of 5 minutes but you're willing to throw your life away and die for him or her *gags*

Romanticized Villains


He's tortured you and killed your entire family but he's soo.. hot though ><

A POPULAR BOOK SERIES YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN READING


I go back and forth on wanting to read this series. What's stopping me is all of the plagiarism claims I've heard against this author in this series. So, I can't say definitively that I'll never pick these up but it's not likely that I will. 

AN ADAPTATION YOU LIKE BETTER THAN THE BOOK


The Notebook is one of my favorite movies of all time, and after seeing it the first time I had to read the book. Why? Because 9 times out of 10, the book is better. But in this case? NOPE. The book was boring and lacked emotion for me.

    1. I fixed it, I hope but it's The Notebook.

      And Warner is exactly who I have in mind when it comes to Romanticized Villains! I thought he was a very interesting character but the love interest? That's disgusting to me.

    1. Yes, you need to read HOF and QOS ASAP!! I really think that you'll like Rowan, he's so sexy *drools*

      You can keep your romanticized villains to yourself then while I run off with the guy that didn't torture me and killed my dog lol.

      I LOVE Twilight and it bugs the hell out of me that the people's opinion of the movies (which let's be honest, only the first one was terrible the other ones were much better) killed the popularity of the series. I think they are really great books.

  3. Cinder! *lone tear* I didn't make it past the first book in Matched. It was definitely not my cup of tea. Nope.

    I've been avoiding John Green because I can't handle the hype. I've already set myself up for disappointment.

    1. Did you like Cinder or not? I forced myself into the second book of Matched but had to call it quits. The writing style is too detached for me.

      I'm always wary when it comes to hyped up books but sometimes I agree and other times not. John Green's books are just not for me.

  4. THE NOTEBOOK! I agree with basically everything in this post, so I approve this message ;)
