Hello friends and strangers! I got tagged to do the Unpopular Opinion Book Tag by Marianne at Boricuan Bookworms! As always, thank you for tagging me, I love tags!
(Even if it takes me months to do them aaaaha sorry) Seriously, Marianne, forgive me for taking so long on this.
A Popular Book or Series You
HATED Didn’t Like
Popular Book or Series that Everyone Hates But You Love
Generally speaking, if the majority of the book community dislikes a certain book, I do too, because they are probably on to something. Here, I picked three favorite books of mine that had pretty low ratings on Goodreads.
Love Triangle Where the MC Ended Up with the Person You Didn’t Want them to End Up With
Probably not what you think: View Spoiler »I never really liked Mal. That doesn’t mean I supported the Darkling as a love interest, though. « Hide Spoiler Otherwise, I’ve been pretty lucky with love triangles lately!
Popular Book Genre You Hardly Reach For
Urban Fantasy. I just can’t get past fantastical elements being mixed with a reality I am familiar with. The closest I’ve probably come to it has been like YA paranormal.
A Popular or Beloved Character that You Didn’t Like
Ethan from BEAUTIFUL CREATURES. I thought he took too much in stride and made decisions that weren’t really reasonable. He was also kind of a bland character, IMO.
A Popular Author that You Can’t Seem to Get Into
I’ve tried reading CARRIE and IT, and couldn’t get into them at all. Is there a different book by King I should try? Does IT get better?
A Popular Book Trope that You’re Tired of Seeing
Insta-Love. I can put up with almost any other trope or cliche but insta-love just makes me so mad. Especially in large books where there isn’t really an excuse.
A Popular Series that You Have No Interest in Reading
I have seen so many negative reviews for this book and after reading one too many YA paranormal books with relatively the same plot, I can’t really see myself reading this series.
Show/Movie Adaptation that You Liked Better Than the Book
I’ve seen the new version in theaters twice now, and it was just as good the second time. So much nostalgia!
