I have been watching this tag around forever now, but never found the opinions given very unpopular. Same as mine, of course. The community of bookreaders is huge so chances are you’ll find a lot of other people feeling the same as you. Anyway.
- A popular book or series that you didn’t like?
Harry Potter Series: I have to be completely honest and tell you that I have only read the first two books in this series and have no interest whatsoever to keep reading. It’s just not my cup of tea. Its fans always attack me though. Guys, you’re the winning team! So calm down and keep reading.
Magonia: The beginning was ok. I was enjoying the story and was touched in few parts. Then after page 100 it started going downhill and I lost my interest completely. I seriously couldn’t stand all the “screamsinging”, “singsaying” and “singing into each other’s lungs”. Like really?! The concept of Magonia was so amazing but destroyed completely in this book.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: I read this book before all the hype exploded and rolled my eyes way to many times. The same problem that I had with Magonia, a great idea that went downhills.
If I Stay: Too much useless information. Never seen a book with so many flashbacks before. It had no point.
The Fault In Our Stars: So unrealistic. This book was trying very hard.
- A popular book or series that everyone seems to hate but you like?
Before I fall: It’s well-written. I like how the characters are all connected with each other and every action brings a consequence.
The Selection: An easy and light read. Not high in sugar, hence why I liked it.
Twilight: When this book first came out everybody was loving it, then it became “cool” to hate on it. Despite all the flaws, Twilight introduced a lot of people to the world of reading and is entertaining.
- A love triangle where the main character ended up with the person you didn’t want them to end up with or an OTP that you don’t like?
I’m not a shipper so this question is a bit difficult to answer. I’ll have to go with Tobias Eaton and Beatrice Prior (Divergent-simply because they seem to stop each other from being themselves), also Feyre and Tamlin (A Court of Thorns and Roses– because she would make a better couple with the other character that I won’t name due to spoilers)
- A popular book genre that you hardly reach for?
Fantasy with angels, werewolves, vampires. Not my cup of tea!
- A popular or beloved character that you don’t like?
- A popular author that you can’t seem to get into?
John Green. I’ve tried my best. We were not meant to be.
- A popular book trope that you are tired of seeing?
Hmm… I don’t know how to call this, but I seriously hate when the main character is interested in a guy and can’t control herself around him, blushes waaay too much, doesn’t know she’s holding a breath and all this… crap.
- A popular series that you have no interest in reading?
- The saying goes “the book is always better than the movie” but which movie was better than its book?
Mockingjay is full of emotions, especially part one. I loved every single moment of it.
Also, Anna Karenina is amazing. So beautifully made with a great cast of actors.
Agree or disagree with my choices? Let me know which is one book you always get hate for not liking enough.
Since lately I haven’t read a lot or done anything interesting to share I decided to do a few tags here and there. Bear with me, please! Haha!
