Unpopular Opinions Book Tag
Sanovia at Creatyve Books did this tag a few weeks ago and I thought it was cool to make it a Halloween inspired one. I’m not sure who originally did it, but it’s definitely not mine, if anyone knows who this originated from let me know and I’ll glad credit them in the post. If you do this as well feel free to link me so I can check out yours!
Popular Book or Series That You Didn’t Like
I think pretty much everyone I’m friends with on twitter and goodreads LOVED this book and I just couldn’t finish it. Dragon is an ASSHOLE and 10% into the book it started hinting at a potential relationship between him and the girl and I was like NOPE I’M OUTTA HERE. He literally kidnapped her, is abusive, mean, and neglectful of her, and you are going to make them ‘fall in love’? STOCKHOLM SYNDROME MUCH?
Popular Book or Series Everyone Else Seems to Hate But You Love
Okay, so not everyone hates this, in fact a lot of people love it. But a lot of people I am friends with don’t like it at all. But I really loved it. I did have an issue with it, which I will address when I get around to re-reading it and reviewing it.
OTP You Don’t Like
Celaena/Chaol; This is a big effing nope for me. Get this outta my face. lol
Popular Book Genre You Hardly Reach For
YA Paranormal Romance; I just can’t stand the 100+ year old vampire falling in love with a teen girl, or the super broody angel trope falling for the super special snowflake teen girl, etc. I read adult paranormal romance because they tend to focus a bit more on plot than being romance with supernatural creatures, which is often the feel I get from YA PNR.
Popular or Beloved Character You Do Not Like
Chaol Westfall; I have not liked him since he first appeared in this book, he does not improve throughout the series for me.
Popular Author You Can’t Seem to Get Into
I read the first three books in this series with my bff and I wasn’t that impressed with them. She had a good idea but her execution was lacking. And omg Cassie, GET OUT OF THIS WORLD, CREATE SOMETHING NEW ALREADY.
Popular Book Trope You’re Tired of Seeing
Wimpy/Watered down Vampires; I have been into vampires since I was 10 years old. I’m in my early 30’s now so that’s a long time. And omfg, I am so tired of this ~nice vampire trope that has appeared since Twilight. Stop it. Vampires are bloodsucking, bump in the night, I’m-going-to-drain-you dry creatures.
Popular Series You Have No Interest in Reading
My bff read this series and liked it so I was planning to read it. But after reading a lot of the asinine things that the author has said on twitter it really has turned me off from them.
Movie or TV Show Adaptation You Prefer More Than the Book
Okay this movie was not that great, and it crashed and burned in the box office, but it was so much better than the book imo. And seriously the saving grace of this movie was Jemima West.
