This is the Unpopular Opinion Book Tag. It’s been floating around for a while now so I decided to try it. First tag of the year! This tag was created by TheBookArcher on YouTube.
A popular book or series you didn’t like:
There are actually a LOT of books I dislike that most people seem to love.
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell; Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas; The Selection by Kiera Cass. For a classic, I’ll say The Lord of the Rings. I just can’t get through those books.
A popular book or series that everyone seems to hate but you loved:
I cannot think of one. Usually, the books people have problems with are the ones I also don’t like. Skip.
A love triangle where the character ended up with the character you didn’t like/ an OTP you didn’t care for:
Matched series by Allie Condie. I won’t give a spoiler in case someone doesn’t know who she ends up with but I was not a fan of the ending.
A popular book genre you hardly reach for:
Paranormal Romance. I have never read a paranormal romance I loved.
A popular character you didn’t like:
Tris from the Divergent series, especially after Allegiant.
A popular author you can’t seem to get into:
I’ll go with a classic: Charles Dickens. His books bore to me death.
A popular book trope you’re tired of seeing:
An obvious one would be love triangles; I am so tired of those. Another would be absent parents; majority of main characters’ parents in YA literature are absent either physically or emotionally. I rarely read books where the protagonist’s parents are actually a major force in their life.
A popular book or series you have no interest in reading:
The Selection series; Hush Hush series; Shatter Me trilogy. I tried reading all of these and failed miserably.
The saying goes, “The book is always better than the movie” but what movie do you liked better than the book?
There are times when I love the movie as much as I love the book but rarely do I love a movie better than the book. The only one I can think of is Ella Enchanted.
