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.
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.
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*
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.
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.
