i feel like the unpopular opinions book tag is getting more and more known in the book community and more people do it, so even though i wasn’t tagged by anyone i decided to try it too!
please don’t get offended by any of the following answers. these are my opinions and i can do nothing to change them.
a popular book or series you didn’t like
eleanor & park by rainbow rowell. i found that nothing really happened most of the time, and i found myself really glad after finishing it. i didn’t connect with the characters, but i have to say i liked park, he’s cute.
a popular book or series everyone else seems to hate but you love
i really really loved delirium by lauren oliver, and i can’t see why a lot of people didn’t like it (except the fact that the third one in the series is not as good as the other ones). it’s one of my favorite series of all-time i really love it.
a love triangle where the main character ended up with the person you didn’t want them to end up with
SPOILERS FOR TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE BY JENNY HAN. IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE BOOK SKIP TO THE NEXT QUESTION
i actually wanted lara jean to end up with josh. i know i’m being mean by saying that because he’s margot’s boyfriend but i wanted it anyway. and i knew it was hopeless from the beginning but i kept hoping something will actually happen. oh well, it’s okay…
a popular genre you hardly reach for
i’m not a big fan of contemporary. i find it hard to get into and sometimes cheesy. however i really loved some contemporary books like since you’ve been gone by morgan matson which was amazing and you should really go and read it.
a popular or beloved character you didn’t like
it’s not that i don’t like her, but she annoys me sometimes. i’m talking about clary fray from the mortal instruments. she does some things in the series and i can’t understand why she actually does these things. i don’t know…
a popular author you can’t seem to get into
again it’s rainbow rowell… i didn’t like eleanor & park, and stopped landline after 60 pages. i may get into her books some day, who knows?
a popular book trope you’re tired of seeing
i’m tired of seeing novels about that special girl who stands against a dystopian society. i feel like it’s in every dystopian book it’s crazy! find something else to talk about, there are millions of other subjects to talk about.
a popular series you have no interest in reading
i have NO interest in reading twilight by stephenie meyer. i saw the movies, and i didn’t like them at all, it was so slow and cheesy. so i don’t think i’m going to read the books any time soon.
a movie or tv show adaptation you prefered more than the book
the scorch trials movie was so good and so different from the book and better, especially that i’m not a huge fan of the maze runner series. i really hope the third movie will not be like the book either, because the death cure was a mess, i didn’t like it.
