The wonderful Sarah from The Reading Petal tagged me in this Unpopular Opinion Book tag. And I got super excited. Because having differing opinions can be fun, am I right?
A Popular Book or Series that You Didn’t Like
I’m not really here to explain why I didn’t like these books (although I explain my reasoning behind We Were Liars in my review here)…because we all have different minds, right? Just because I didn’t like these popular books doesn’t mean we can’t be friends. AKA don’t hate me.
A Popular Book that Everyone Hates But You Love
I’ve seen some people who didn’t like The 5th Wave, but I really enjoyed it and I can’t wait for the movie. I need to read the sequel stat.
And I feel like all books by Stephenie Meyer get a bad reputation now…and though the Twilight series isn’t my favorite anymore, I still love The Host. Meyer wrote it with a different audience in mind and I just like the characters and plotline a lot.
A Love Triangle Where Your Ship Did Not Sail
A Popular Genre You Hardly Reach For
Science Fiction. I just have a hard time getting into it. Some of it, though, I’ve loved. But for the most part, I’m not the biggest fan of this.
A Beloved Character You Didn’t Like
It’s not that I didn’t like Kestrel. I just didn’t love her like everyone else seems to. I was just overall a little underwhelmed with this series and Kestrel as a character…but I’m for sure still going to read The Winner’s Kiss next year.
A Popular Author You Can’t Get Into
I’m sorry all of you Percy Jackson fans. I tried…I did. But I couldn’t get into them.
A Popular Book Trope You’re Tired of Seeing
This is going to be super cliché, but insta-love. There’s a difference between being attracted to someone on first meeting them…and being in love with them. No matter how romantic it sounds, I don’t really believe in the whole “love at first sight” thing.
A Popular Book Series You Have No Interest in Reading
I started reading City of Bones years ago and I just couldn’t get into it. And I’ve heard enough people that don’t like it that I just don’t have an interest in ever reading them. And the books just go on and on. Sorry to y’all who are avid Clare fans.
An Adaptation You Like Better than the Book
I think this movie was better than the book! The movie just made connections that the book lacked…and it just made more sense. And I like Tris and Four better in the movie. And I actually felt like Tris had a real relationship with her parents in the movie…and I didn’t feel like that in the book, sooooo…yeah.
