so i saw this tag on twirling pages (here) and decided to try it out! i wasn’t tagged and i don’t intend on tagging anyone. just a fun little something to do. and i’m sorry if you disagree with some of my answers, seeing as it’s “unpopular opinions” for a reason …
popular book/series you didn’t like
passenger- if you’ve read my review, you’d know why. but basically, it’s REALLY boring for the first half then the second half is a rushed love story. i liked the ideas/concepts but this book was a huge let down to me. i picked it up because of the time travel not the ott romance.
a book series everyone hates but you love
red queen- i honestly don’t know what i like about this book, i just do. some parts reminded me of other books (such as the hunger games), but that’s what you get for such a restricting genre, i guess.
vampire academy- okay, so i know this book is quite popular, but there are loads of people who hate it. and by loads i mean i’ve met more people who hate it than like.
a love triangle where the main character ends up with the person you didn’t want them to end up with
is this one not obvious enough?
throne of glass- rowaelin. i’m sorry but i don’t support the positive representation of domestic abuse that is rowaelin.
a popular book genre you rarely reach for
i have no picture for this one because i don’t read these sorts of books, but: contemporary / romance. i find them boring and very hard to get into. i can never like the main character nor ship the main ship. theres something about these books that throws me off.
popular beloved character you didn’t like
aelin. don’t get me wrong about this, okay. i absolutely love and adore celaena, but aelin is such a self obsessed bitch who thinks she knows everything, i honestly can’t stand her. her character development is so bad, i don’t think i’ve seen one like this ugh.
then there’s tris. almost as bad as aelin. tris became so whiney and way too reliant on four, it was unlike her. i dont think anyone else shares my opinions on her??
a popular author you can’t seem to get into
i’d say anything contemporary. i can usually read most authors stuff with no problem.
popular trope you are tired of seeing
love triangles? insta love? the ‘oh i can’t do anything without a man to save me’ types of female protagonists. i can rant all day about these and many more.
popular series you have no interest in reading
as if you weren’t expecting to see these here. i feel like this is pretty self explanatory especially because i don’t read romance in the first place.
the book isn’t always better than the movie
and no one’s going to deny it. this also includes the hobbit. there was so much singing in the hobbit books, i got confused. the books are so hard to get into and there’s no way i can connect to characters like those. but the movies are fab (if a little drawn out.)
