Hey beautiful book lovers!
Today I am going to be doing the Unpopular Opinions Tag, I wasn’t tagged by anyone to do this I just really wanted to do it myself. I suck at doing tags when I’m actually tagged in them but I am going to try to be better and actually do them.
I really like this one because it’s interesting to see what things other people don’t like or views they have that aren’t considered popular.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. For me I just wasn’t a fan of this book, I have read other books by Rainbow Rowell such as Eleanor and Park and Landline and enjoyed them but this one I just wasn’t a fan off. I had such high hopes because their was so much hype for this but I skipped half of the bits with Simon Snow because I found them boring and I was left feeling disappointed. I pretty much had to force myself to finish it.
Please don’t throw things at me*
I can’t really think of a book series everyone hates? There is a few I have heard mixed reviews about such as Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard which I adored and I’m currently reading the Throne of Glass series which I’m loving so far. If I was going to go old school then I would say Twilight, everyone seems to dislike that one now but for me it got me into reading and will always have a special place in my heart.
I think I’m really lucky here because I’ve not had a love triangle where the Main Character doesn’t end up with the guy I want them too? Twilight I was always Team Edward, The Hunger Games I was always Team Peeta, Harry Potter I was always for Ron and Hermione, ACOTAR – Team Rhysand and so forth. As you can see I always tend to root for the couple that ends up together.
Horror and paranormal I hate horror, I like to read crime thrillers but horror and paranormal just don’t work for me. I’m not into Ghosts or anything like that.
No not Lara Jean. I liked Lara Jean, I wouldn’t say their necessarily popular but her sisters Kitty and Margot. I really didn’t like either of them, I found Margot to be overbearing and Kitty was so annoying.
Maggie Stiefvater and specifically her The Raven Boys series. I really struggled to get into The Raven Boys and since reading it I’ve had no desire to move on to the rest in the series. I had such high hopes because this series is so loved and hyped but for me I almost DNF it, I liked Gansey and Blue but I was way past 60% into the book before I felt like I was into it.
The Love Triangle. I mean I love a bit of angst and tension but I’m getting fed up of reading Love Triangles in every single book series, can a girl not just like the one guy instead of having the good and bad guys to choose from? I think it’s overdone these days.
Ransom Riggs – Home for Peculiar Children. When I first saw this and read reviews I thought I would give it ago but now time has gone on and I really have zero interest in reading it. I saw the trailer for the movie which just hammered home to me that I don’t think this would be one for me or one I enjoyed.
The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins. I really liked the books, I even wrote my dissertation on Katniss Everdeen but having reread them so much for my dissertation research I’ve found I actually prefer the movies! Shocker I know. I think the movies are one of the best adaptations I have ever seen and they are done so well.
So there we have my Unpopular Opinions… Please don’t hate me! Let me know in the comments what your unpopular opinions are and if you do the tag be sure to send a link to me so I can see your post!
