Alright, its been a while since I've done a book tag on here (apologies), so I say its about time for another one! Ive seen this tag EVERYWHERE on Youtube and it looks like a lot of fun so lets try it! Not to mention, what better way to start off the New Year then with ranting about all the books we hate?
Anyway, I present to you, the Unpopular Opinion Book Tag!
1.) A popular book or series that you didn't like.
Answer: The Falling Kingdoms series by: Morgan Rhodes. There has been TONS of hype surrounding this series for such a long time but recently, when I gave them a try, I absolutely hated them. I'm a huge fan of fantasy etc, but these books were flat, boring, and extremely unmemorable for me. Sorry not sorry!!
2.) A popular book or series that everyone else seems to hate but you love.
Answer: Twilight by: Stephanie Meyer. IM SORRY OKAY?! I am completely aware of the fact that these books are extremely poorly written and all that but they are my absolute guilty pleasure and I am not ashamed. Give me Twilight and a carton of ice cream and id be quite the happy lady.
3.) 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 didn't like.
Answer: Katniss and Peeta from the Hunger Games. This quite an unpopular pinion but I actually hated Peeta with a burning passion the first time I read the books. I am Team Gale all the way baby! Thats why I was extremely disappointed with the way that the trilogy ended because I just wanted that little blond weasel dead. :) Gale was WAY better for her in my opinion.
4.) A popular book genre that you hardly reach for.
Answer: Manga and Graphic Novels. I don't really know if this qualifies as a genre but Im putting it anyway. graphic novels have become extremely popular these days but I am not interested in them what so ever. I think its because I like being able to envision how characters and settings look in my own head without relying on pictures!
5.) A popular or beloved character that you did not like.
Answer: Tessa from the After series by: Anna Todd. For those of you who don't know, this series started out as a One Direction fan fiction on Wattpad and has since been published and have become extremely popular. I have a ton of friends who are obsessed with these books and recommended them to me but I absolutely HATED THEM SO MUCH. AND IT WAS ALL BECAUSE OF THE STUPID MAIN CHARACTER. I don't think I have ever read about someone who was as dumb as she was.
6.) A popular author that you can't seem to get into.
Answer: J.R.R. Tolkien. I have literally tried to read The Lord of the Rings 3 or 4 times now but every time I pick it up, I end up quitting. I want to like it I really do but his writing is just SO BORING. I don't think Ive been able to get more then a chapter or 2 in.
7.) A popular book troupe that you are tired of seeing.
Answer: CLICHE BOY MEETS GIRL SCENARIOS. Now I am a huge fan of YA and NA romances but Im having some real problems these days enjoying them because all of them are the same. Its always about a average, innocent, book loving girl who falls in love with a perfect specimen of a man who looks like someone off one of those bags from Hollister. Its also mandatory that he always says these perfect one liners and has such rage tester one levels that he picks fights with everyone around him. IM SO SICK OF THIS. Is it impossible to find a romance in which the woman is the dominating person in the relationship and maybe the guy is the insecure and innocent one? I just want someone to switch things up once in a while!
8.) A popular series that you have no interest in reading.
Answer: 50 Shades of Grey. Not my thing what so ever. I am literally so sick of hearing people take about this stupid series. Stop. Just stop. Its gross and makes me lose a tad bit of respect for you every time you mention it.
9.) The saying always goes, "the book is always better then the movie", but what movie or tv show adaptation did you like more then the book?
Answer: The Martian by: Andy Weir. Im sorry but the book just confused the hell out of me. While it was funny at parts, it was extremely boring and there was way to much random information in my opinion. The movie was quick, detailed and made a lot more sense then the book did in my opinion! Not to mention it had Matt Damon in it. Nothing I tell you, NOTHING, beats Matt Damon.
