Hey guys!! Who’s ready for the weekend??
And that means…
Anyway, I do hope you guys use this weekend to rest and play and have fun😚
To the matter at hand! This tag speaks for itself. It’s about unpopular opinions. I was tagged by the AMAZING Rendz @ Reading with Rendz.She’s a very nice person with really good content. Check out her blog!
A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT YOU DIDN’T LIKE
I’m going to do one each so…
Popular book I didn’t like:
You know that saying about not judging a book by its cover? It should also include not judging a book by its name. I saw this book here on Goodreads, I read the synopsis which seemed like it would have some sister bonding moments, I didn’t read the reviews and I got the book! It had such an interesting book cover and name and I couldn’t resist!
Obviously, I read it and about half way through, it was quite a well-written book then, I think that the author developed a split personality. That’s the only explanation for the horrible second half. I trudged through it cringing, wincing and just plain horrified. I was and still am really pissed. It had so much potential. Some authors just don’t know how to write sex into novels. Sigh
Popular series I didn’t like
I’m not sure if this is exactly popular but I hated this series. It’s a series that dragged on too long and steadily got terrible. Read my full review here
A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT EVERYONE SEEMS TO HATE BUT YOU LOVE
I do understand the hate this book gets. I don’t want anyone judging me so I’ll just ask you to check it on Goodreads and read the 5 star and 1 star reviews. I don’t think you’ll see many 2, 3 or 4 star reviews. Either you hate it or you like it. No middle ground.
AN OTP YOU DON’T LIKE
Liesl and The Goblin King in the above Wintersong. The guy kept on asking her to give “herself to him entire” and I’m like
Also, she started throwing herself on him and going all ” ‘Take me.’ I yearned and I burned.” This was after she hated him for half of the book. I like sex but damn.. their “relationship” was fucked up.
A POPULAR BOOK GENRE YOU HARDLY REACH FOR
Horror and thriller. I’ve read 2 horror novellas this year and I’m so proud of myself😊
A POPULAR/BELOVED CHARACTER THAT YOU DO NOT LIKE
Blue, Gansey and Rowan (especially him) Never Adam. I did write a mini review here
A POPULAR AUTHOR THAT YOU CAN’T SEEM TO GET INTO
I read Cinder. It was unbelievable and I didn’t care much for it. I read Heartless and hated it (mini review here)
I’m sure she’s a wonderful person but her books are just not for me.
A POPULAR BOOK TROPE THAT YOU ARE TIRED OF SEEING
Love triangle, insta-love, forced love (where the characters are so obviously not for each other), too much purple prose (I like it in small amounts), too much sex (If I wanted to read a book with 10 to 20 pages of sex or even more, I’ll read a Harlequin romance or an erotica😐)
A POPULAR SERIES THAT YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN READING
The Mortal Instruments series.
Rendz’s answer is perfect for me. I started the first book a few years ago and I hated it so much that I swore myself off all Cassandra Clare novels. After seeing gushing reviews of the Infernal Devices Series, I relented and decided to read it. It was okay but I hated the ending. Obviously, it didn’t encourage me to try to reread the above series.
THE SAYING GOES “THE BOOK IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN THE MOVIE”, BUT WHAT MOVIE OR TV ADAPTATION DO YOU PREFER MORE THAN THE BOOK
At first, I was going to say I can’t think of any but then, I thought of the perfect example.
13 Reasons Why
I disliked the book. I still don’t remember why. I just know I didn’t like it😂😂😂😂 I loved the TV series though.
And I’m done!!
