Yippee!!!🎉🎉🎉🎉

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

Marissa Meyer

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!!

  1. Yayay more drama with unpopular opinions! So now you have me rethinking Wintersong….it sounded so cool and while I do like hate/love relationships….that just sounds weird. You broke my heart just a little with the Marissa Meyer bit, but like I totally get it. Great answers!

  2. Thank you for tagging me! Well well well, I finally meet someone who doesn’t like 13 Reasons Why either :-). I expected so much more when reading this one (and it was way before it became so well known), I didn’t find it very interesting really.. I’m already happy I haven’t read any of the other novels you listed 🙂

  3. I started one recently and couldn’t get Noel Fielding out of my head when I pictured the main character who was supposed to be the most lusted after male to ever walk the planet. I couldn’t get into it for that reason lol!

  4. Omigosh, Wintersong. I was SO SO excited when it came out, but I started noticing a lot of people were not very fond of it. But now after seeing your remarks about it, I don’t think I will be reading it at all. It sounds…erm, oh dear. I’m so nervous to try out The Raven Cycle, especially now that you said that you don’t like most of the main characters. XD Unpopular opinions are the best, and I end up agreeing with so many of them! Sad to see Meyer made the list, but I can see where you’re coming from with it. Wonderful answers, and thanks so much for tagging me! I can’t wait to do it! 🙂

    1. I didn’t even know when it came out but I saw it on Goodreads and the name and cover just drew me in. I want to say you can try it but it isn’t a book I’ll recommend. A lot of people like The Raven Cycle though. I’ve read very few complaints about it. You might actually like it. I tried so hard with Marissa Meyer cos everyone likes her but I just can’t fully like her books.
      Thank you so so much for your comment. I love reading long comments like yours. I really appreciate it💕
