Hello fellow bookworms and bloggers! Today is tag day! I found this baby over at Read at Midnight and decided to give it a go.
Let’s talk unpopular opinions.
1. A popular book you didn’t like.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I could not stand this book, in fact, I still can’t. It just gets on my nerves and I don’t find it an enjoyable read, which considering most of the population seemed to absolutely love it when it came out definitely puts me in the minority.
2. A book series that everyone hates but you love.
I’m not sure if others hate it or if they just don’t enjoy it as much as the stand alone books, but the Horror Land collection by R L Stine. I loved this series, and I actually re-read the whole series last year!
3. A love triangle where the MC ends up with the person you didn’t want them to end up with.
I’ve actually been pretty happy with every relationship that I’ve read lately, so, I don’t have an answer for this one I’m afraid 😦
4. A popular genre you rarely reach for.
Young adult. I rarely read YA books, although I am making an effort to include them more in my TBR.
5. A popular character you didn’t like.
Oh gosh, okay, here goes, please don’t kill me… Peeta Mellark. It’s not that I don’t like him, it’s just that I like him less and he just doesn’t fill me with as much joy to read about him as other characters. But, I do agree he should have ended up with Katniss over Gale.
6. A popular author you can’t seem to get into.
John Green, I think I read The Fault in Our Stars first and as you can see above I didn’t enjoy it so it kind of put me off his other books.
7. A popular trope you’re tired of seeing.
LOVE TRIANGLES. REMOVE THEM FROM MY BOOKS!!!! Yes the capitals were intentional, I need to voice my anger about how much I hate love triangles, they are pointless and I’m pretty sure they raise my blood pressure when I read them*
*Maybe a slight exaggeration lmaooooo
8. A popular series you have no interest in reading.
The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. This one is just not for me…
9. The saying goes “the book is always better than the movie” but what movie do you prefer to the book?
I actually prefer the Gone Girl movie to the book (maybe it has something to do with Ben Affleck playing Nick). I found because there was so much to absorb from this one that the movie was just an easier way to consume everything.
As always, if you want to take part consider yourself tagged! And be sure to let me know what you thought of my unpopular opinions.
Until next time, Em xxx
