Hey guys! Hope you’re all having a lovely week 🙂
So I was tagged by the wonderful Irena @ Books and Hot Tea to do this tag and I thought it would be… Interesting, to say the least, as I do have a lot of unpopular opinions!
Please check out her blog if you haven’t yet! It has tons of bookish posts and a lot of other awesome diverse content. Thank you so much, Irena! ❤
A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT YOU DIDN’T LIKE
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. At the time, everyone was raving about this book so I read it. And was not impressed.
A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO HATE BUT YOU LOVE
I’m not sure how much this series is actually hated but I’ve seen some people around the blogosphere saying they didn’t like it…
The Winner’s Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski. It’s one of my favorite series of all time!
AN OTP THAT YOU DON’T LIKE
Katniss and Peeta. Go ahead and pick up those pitchforks but I really don’t like this couple! I feel no chemistry whatsoever.
(Among others but I want to keep this post short.)
A POPULAR BOOK GENRE THAT YOU HARDLY REACH FOR.
Thriller. I never read those, even though they’re all the rage nowadays.
A POPULAR/BELOVED CHARACTER THAT YOU DO NOT LIKE
Severus Snape from the Harry Potter series. I see people defending this character all the time and it makes no sense to me. He is not a redeemable character (and that’s completely fine, by the way).
I can understand how people may relate to him but that’s a whole different story.
A POPULAR AUTHOR THAT YOU CAN’T SEEM TO GET INTO
Anne Bishop and Veronica Roth.
A POPULAR BOOK TROPE THAT YOU’RE TIRED OF SEEING
I’m usually pretty chill when it comes to clichés, as long as they’re done well. But the Mary Sue/Gary Sue archetype just gets on my nerves.
Flawless characters are just not interesting. And making them clumsy, too pale, too freckled, too short, etc., are not feasible flaws either. There needs to be something close to reprehensible about them, or at least very annoying, for it to be considered a flaw.
A POPULAR SERIES THAT YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN READING.
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. I’ve actually been spoiled for this one and, to be honest, it never really grabbed my attention. Just seems more of the same thing.
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?
The 100. I’m still trying to finish the second book in the trilogy… The TV show is just so much better! Not to mention completely different plot-wise.

Also, I hope you were not sad or offended by my answers. Everyone has different opinions and that’s awesome! We should all just respect each other’s points of view 🙂
Thank you so much for reading and until next time!
How “unpopular” did you find my opinions? Do you agree or disagree with them? 【・・?】
