I am going to do the Unpopular Opinion book tag that was created by The Book Archer. I wasn't tagged or anything, but I'm gonna do it anyway. And I'm probably not gonna tag anyone either because I don't wish to annoy anyone! I feel like this is kinda repetitive to things I've posted before, but maybe you're a new reader and don't know this about my reading preferences.
I saw this tag on The Reading Petal.
A POPULAR BOOK OR SERIES THAT YOU DIDN'T LIKE:
Everyone and their dog seems to love Shatter Me, but I could NOT deal with all the
strikethroughs and things getting repeated three times three times three times. And the RIDICULOUS descriptions and such. I was prepared to love this series (since everyone else does), but I just could not do it.
I liked the first three books of The Mortal Instruments series. But after that, I think that it was just pointless to keep that series going. The last three books were terrible and I never want to read about another vampire or werewolf or shadowhunter ever again.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer I liked at first. But as it kept going, I thought it got kinda ridiculous and I was just over it.
A POPULAR BOOK SERIES THAT EVERYONE HATES BUT YOU LOVE:
When I picked this up, I hadn't really read any good reviews on it, but it really seemed interesting to me so I got it anyway and I LOVED it! But I haven't really found very many people who share my love for this book.
A LOVE TRIANGLE WHERE THE MAIN CHARACTER ENDED UP WITH THE PERSON YOU DID NOT WANT THEM TO END UP WITH:
I don't know that this book really fits in this category. But it's the best that I can come up with because I feel like I am usually good at liking the right person. Like she didn't end up with who I wanted her to be with throughout the whole book, but that's totally a good thing in the end and I'm glad she didn't!
A POPULAR GENRE YOU HARDLY EVER REACH FOR:
I'm not much of a contemporary fan. The real world is too boring for me to want to read about generally.
A POPULAR OR BELOVED CHARACTER YOU DID NOT LIKE:
Rhysand from A Court of Thorns and Roses
Warner from Shatter Me
See tomorrow's Top Ten Tuesday post for more details!
A POPULAR AUTHOR YOU CAN'T SEEM TO GET INTO:
The first John Green book I read was Looking for Alaska, which I liked. Then I read The Fault in Our Stars, which I bawled like a total baby for the entire second half of the book. Then I read Paper Towns and An Abundance of Katherines and I decided that John Green wasn't for me. Everytime I read one of his books I want to scream, "NO ONE TALKS LIKE THAT!!!!!!!!!" Also, if I hear the name Margo Roth Spiegelman one more time, I will explode from anger because who in this world constantly refers to someone by their full name every. single. time. they are mentioned?! NO ONE! I could have loved all of his books, but I couldn't stand the way the characters talked. Any of them. So annoying.
A POPULAR BOOK TROPE YOU ARE TIRED OF SEEING:
I probably would have said love triangles, but all the other unpopular opinion book tags I just looked up all had it so according to this list I am looking up on google, I am going to say:
1. Alternating POVs. I hate them.
2. Girl who thinks she's so plain and boring, but obviously you know she's not.
A POPULAR SERIES THAT YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN READING:
No more Shadowhunters for me. Ever.
A SHOW/MOVIE ADAPTATION YOU LIKE BETTER THAN THE BOOK:
Basically I think this show is mostly BS. But I watched ALL OF IT. And I only read one of the books after I started watching the show and then I figured out how many books there were in the series and I was like nah.
So there you have it! If anyone sees this and wants to do it, link me to your post! I would love to see it!
