Hey guys I have another book tag for you today! I saw this going around BookTube awhile ago and have been wanting to do it. The tag was created by TheBookArcher and you can check out her channel here.
1. Popular book or series that you didn’t like.
(I am about to get so much hate for this but …)
I really love the covers for this series but I didn’t see what the hype over these books were. I read the first and had that ‘eh’ feeling and then skim read the second one and didn’t even bother with the last book in the series. I have thought about revisiting the series but honestly I don’t know if I ever will. It’s not a bad series but I didn’t love it like everyone else did.
2. Popular book or series that everyone hates but you love.
I don’t think people ‘hate’ this series but I have seen several bad reviews about the series in general where I really enjoyed it. I haven’t read the next two in the series, though I really should because if they were as good as the first then I assume I would really enjoy them.
3. A long triangle where the main character ended up with the person you did NOT want them to end up OR and OTP you do not like.
My 13 year old self is still steaming over Bella not picking Jacob. I know she is better with Edward and Jacob got his happily ever after but goodness I was bitter when I was younger. It may be that I just wanted Jacob.
4. A popular book genre you hardly reach for.
Anything historical fiction or high fantasy. I can’t seem to get into the worlds as easy and I didn’t like history when I was younger so it felt like a chore to read. Though I did read Outlander and I really liked it so I’m ‘hoping’ to get into more of it.
5. A popular beloved character you did not like.
I can’t tell you how much I hated this lady. Like every inch of my soul was for her to die in the books.
6. A popular author you can’t seem to get into to.
Jennifer L Armentrout is literally everywhere. Her books are on my instagram and twitter feed but I can’t seem to read them. I tried reading her Covenant series and immediately disliked them as they felt like a copy cat of Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy series. I read her Obsidian series and liked them enough to read the series but as the final books came out I slowly lost interest. I haven’t even attempted her NA books though everyone says they are great.
7. A popular book trop you are tired of seeing.
Of course I’m going to mention love triangles. They are super predictable most of the time and sometimes keep me from reading the book if they aren’t introduced right. Also does trilogies count? I would enjoy a series much more if it was a two book series or with enough world building to be more than four.
8. A popular series you have no interest in reading.
I remember reading the first and after (haha pun) I knew I wouldn’t finish the series. Writing isn’t bad but I just feel like the characters were interesting enough and I really dislike the relationship between the two main characters.
9. “The book is always better than the movie.” But what movie or TV show do you prefer over the book.
The Maze Runner book at best was ok. Interesting enough for me to read the second but not the third. I was iffy about watching the movie but after I did I was surprised by how much I liked more so than the book. I still have yet to see the sequel though.
OK so that was the Unpopular Opinions Book Tag! If you would like to do this tag, go for it, and let me know if you did so I could see it. I hope you enjoy these tags as I have a lot of fun writing down my answers and typing them out for you to see. Thank you readers for reading and my Monthly Wrap Up should be out the day after tomorrow, until then,
Over and out.
