Unpopular Opinions Book Tag

A Popular Book or series that you didn’t like.

(Those who have read my review may skip this part.) Okay, to be fair, I didn’t HATE the book, and I’d rate it as “eh, okay”, but…yes, I don’t get the hype about this book. It just annoyed me. The endless lists. (Mentions are great, lists are not.) Whil Weaton’s voice (listened to the Audible version). Etc.

A Popular Book or series that every one else seems to hate but you love
Yeah, I got nothin’ here. Sorry.

A Love Triangle where the main character ended up with the person you did NOT want them to end up with OR an OTP that you don’t like.

So technically it’s not a love triangle if you’re true to the books, but a fanfiction lover like me…WHY the heck did JK Rowling pair Hermione and Ron? EVERYONE knows she should have ended up with Harry!

A popular book Genre that you hardly reach for.

Paranormal/Preternatural Romances. Now, I KNOW that one of my favorite series is such, but in general, this genre is full of crap!

A popular or beloved character that you do not like.

Christian Gray from 50 Shades of Grey, if poor, would be in jail for domestic abuse and be considered a freaking sadist. BDSM IS NOT LIKE THAT!

A popular author that you can’t seem to get into.

I love horror, so I should naturally love Steven King, right? I wish. There’s two books I like from King (IT, The Gunslinger). His first chapters are good, but then he swiftly loses me. He just talks too much!

A popular book trope that you’re tired of seeing. (examples “lost princess”, corrupt ruler, love triangles, etc.)
LOVE TRIANGLES NEED TO DIE!

A popular series that you have no interest in reading.

I think at one point I actually tried to read a Bones novel. Theoretically, they’re right up my alley. I just…couldn’t get into the one I tried to read, and have no interest in trying again.

The saying goes “The book is always better than the movie”, but what movie or T.V. show adaptation do you prefer more than the book?

Sorry, but the movie IS better than the book. The characters are more likeable, the action is better seen than read about, etc.

I tag anyone who wants to participate!

  1. Love triangles do need to die.

    I actually love that Harry and Hermione were not ever, not even hinted at being, a thing. Reading about Hermione (smart, strong, brave, nerdy, punches Malfoy in the face, writes a mean essay) was great, and the best bit was she was a regular character rather than the love interest for the lead. She was in the book for her reasons, not Harry’s. I thought that was cool.

    But it’s always interesting hearing how other people think about it.

    1. I honestly never considered Harry and Hermione until I started reading fanfiction to pass the time between books. Then it seemed like you HAD to ship something, and…yeah, it was the pairing that made sense. Hermione was an awesome character!

  2. That’s what I’ve been saying when it came to the Harry Potter endgame couples! I was so rooting for Harry and Hermione and it even made me more upset when JK Rowling mentioned that they could have ended up together…..
