I was watching some videos on YouTube and I saw the Unpopular Opinion Book Tag video and thought I would do it on this blog. The Unpopular Opinion Book Tag is a tag were well I share my opinion on things that people may or may not agree on. So lets get started!
1. A popular book or series you did not like.
For me this is going to have to be Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. I tried so hard to get into the series and even read all the books in the series (it took me a year to read each one), I just couldn’t get into it.
2. A book series that everyone hates, but you love.
This is a tough one, because I am not sure if I have read anything people hate. But I will go with Red Queen on this one. I actually ended up liking the story, I didn’t love it but I did enjoy it. I am hoping it is a series that grows stronger as it goes.
3. A love triangle where the main character ends up with the person you didn’t want them to end up with.
I am going to go with Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas, its really the only series that breaks my heart a little that it did not go my way.
4. A popular book genre you rarely reach for.
Contemporaries. It is not like they are bad or anything, I am more into fantasy and historical fiction.
5. A beloved character you didn’t like.
I am not sure if he is a beloved character, but I am going with Four from Divergent series. He was just dull to me and got annoying in Allegiance.
6. A popular beloved author you didn’t like.
John Green. I just had to get it out, I am not into John Green. I have tried so hard to see what people love about him, but I just feel no connection to anything. I did enjoy The Fault in Our Stars, but other than that everything else he has written has fallen flat to me.
7. Popular trope you’re tired of seeing.
There is a lot of things I am tired of seeing in YA, like for instance love triangles. One thing though I am tired of seeing is the boy who is not noticed who is love with the popular girl and somehow they end up together at the end. Or the bad boy turns good, because of a girl. Insert eye roll.
8.Popular series you have no interest in reading.
This is a tough one. I always give a series or a book a chance. I also never say I wont read something, because you never know I may end up liking it after all. For instance I thought I would hate TMI, but I ended up really enjoying it. However I do not see myself reading The 100, mainly because I started the show before I read the book and I love the show.
9. The saying goes, “the book is always better than the movie,” but what movie do you prefer more than the book?
Another tough one. I am going to go with the 2005 adaptation of Pride & Prejudice. Don’t get me wrong, I love the book as well, it is one of my most recommended books. The movie is beautiful and I cannot help but swoon a little over it. Also the acting was wonderful. Th movie score is also just beautiful. It is a beautiful movie that is all. I also know that it did not follow the book all that well, but I still loved it.
