I decided to do this tag now, because I have read a lot of books so far this year and I figured it would give me more options to answer these questions. I have previously answered these questions on an Instagram post, but I honestly do not remember which one and it was probably over the summer, so now I’m going to do it again. I was not tagged by anyone to do this post and I’m not sure who the original creator is, so if you do know, let me know so I can give them credit. So here goes the Unpopular Opinions Book Tag!
A popular book or book series that you didn’t like
The Girls by Emma Cline. A lot of people have enjoyed this one but I did not like anything about this book. I didn’t like the writing, the characters, the story… the only thing I actually liked about this book is the cover.
A popular book or book series that everyone else seems to hate but you love
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. This is the lowest rated Hunger Games book but it’s MY FAVORITE! It has been a while since I read this series so it may have changed. But as of last year, this was my favorite in the series and a lot of people disagree with me on that.
An OTP that you don’t like
Cassie and Evan from The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. This relationship was weird from the start and I just didn’t like it. At all!
A popular book genre that you hardly reach for
Historical Fiction. It’s not that I dislike this genre but I just don’t find myself reaching for it that much but not for any particular reason.
A popular/beloved character that you do not like
Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. I will never understand why so many people love Draco. He is so mean and such a bully! I understand he comes from a rough background with his parents working for “He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named” but that does not excuse his behavior towards his classmates.
A popular author that you can’t seem to get into
Jennifer Close. I read two books by Jennifer Close, The Hopefuls and Girls In White Dresses. The Hopefuls was the better of the two but I didn’t really love either one. I probably won’t be picking up anything else by this author.
A popular book trope that you’re tired of seeing
Love triangles. I’m tired of seeing these. Do I need to explain more?
A popular series that you have no interest in reading
This is hard to say because I can’t really think of any books that I’m not willing to give a shot at. But I guess for now, I will say the Red Queen series. I’ve heard so many mixed things about it and for now, I will not be reading this series.
The saying goes “The book is always better than the movie”, but what movie or TV show adaptation do you prefer more than the book?
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. I think this made a GREAT movie but the book was almost 500 pages long. If you don’t know, Before I Fall is about a girl named Sam who dies and relives the same day over and over for seven days. So as you can tell from that small synopsis, the book drags on and is VERY repetitive. But the movie works out very well and I much preferred it over the book.
I’m not going to tag anyone specific because this is an older tag and I know most people have already done it, but if you haven’t and you would like to, then TAG YOU’RE IT! Thank you so much for reading. Cya!
