Unpopular Opinion Book Tag!

Hello there allies, archenemies and, everyone in between! It’s time for another book tag again and this is one that I’ve always seen circulate in the book community. I guess it’s high time to finally join in the fray! I’ve unearthed this tag in Erin The Book Nut’s post.

Let us begin!

A popular book you didn’t like.

Read my review here!

Oh the trappings of a beautiful cover! This was a book filled with beautiful words you can’t help but laugh how ironically empty the sentences are. There’s one part where a violin’s music is described like chocolate??? And saffron with all it’s yellowines?? It’s just that the adjectives are so mismatched here. AND DON’T GET ME STARTED WITH THE PLOT. This book just straight up lied to me.

A book series that everyone hates but you love.

I don’t think EVERYONE hates this series but I’ve seen a lot of negative reviews for this baby and honestly? I don’t fcking care Brenda. This book introduced me to YA Fantasy and all its facets; this book was the ONLY book that I’ve read in my first year in college; and this book holds a special place in my heart for keeping my faith in reading.

A love triangle where the MC ends up with the person you didn’t want them to end up with.

Yes, I didn’t pine for Peeta at all. I’m sorry but Gale IS THE MAN. Let’s say it’s the reason why I’ve DNFd this book.

A popular genre you rarely reach for.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I AM A SCAREDY CAT AND WILL NEVER EVER TOUCH HORROR.

A popular character you didn’t like.

Before you crucify me, please hear me out folks! I don’t wholly dislike him, I just find him incredibly stupid and impulsive sometimes. I love the HP series mind you! But sometimes Harry can just get on my nerves so much that I even related to Malfoy at some point.

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

As I’ve said before I will never touch horror so naturally, it would be Stephen King.

A popular trope you’re tired of seeing. 

The love triangle! Mostly because I don’t want the MC to choose the other guy that I wasn’t pining for and because it’s just so fcking unfair for the second lead? Nope. Nada. I don’t want to go through the emotional stress. Aside from this trope I also hate it when the guy suddenly finds “the one” while still being in a relationship. LIKE WTF DUDE? Perfect examples are: Love and Gelato as well as Anna and the French Kiss.

A popular series you have no interest in reading.

Yippie kayak! My younger sister was the one who read this series and persuaded me as well but right now, I don’t think I’d really care. This was really more of a hype pressure for me!

The saying goes “the book is always better than the movie” but what movie do you prefer to the book?

I’ve read the book only after watching the movie with its altered ending. This was tons better and had me cracking up the whole time! The book, however, has more of a depressing tone with it which really differed from the movie’s direction

Thank you so much for reading through this haphazard and easy tag! I do hope you enjoyed so I’m tagging YOU as well! And all these other folks (don’t mind this if you guys already did this though!):

  1. I was thisclose to buying Caraval because of its gorgeous cover too but something inside me kept holding me back. Thank god I waited long enough for my trusted reviewers to warn me against the series. I’d probably be so pissed if I spent money on a book that’s almost guaranteed to disappoint me. I guess you really can’t judge a book by its cover, hahha

    Also! I feel the same way about SJM. BIG OOF

    1. The stars have aligned in your favor!!!! Good thing you held back Zia though I would have loved to see a well drawn out critical review from you! (This is in the same level with Three Dark Crowns so yup) I would still read other books from SJM tho (I read only one) just not this overhyped series XD

      Thank you for reading!

  2. I’m tired of love triangles to the point where they grate on my nerves. I have noo intention of reading the Throne of Glass series, Maas’ other book didn’t go down well with me but I keep hearing that this series is better

  3. This is a fun tag– Caraval does have a beautiful cover– sometimes it has tempted me into wanting to buy it but I’m sorry it didn’t live up to your expectation. The descriptions do sound a bit odd there 😂😂
    Ooh team Gale– I was on team Gale for the first movie but then I changed to Peeta.. sorry 😂 but I’ve only watched the movies and never read them.
    Sometimes Harry has annoyed me with his impulsive actions too!! Sometimes he just needs to think about it first 😂
    Thank you for tagging me– I look forward to trying this out!! 💛
    Great post!! 💛

    1. Iz okie Sophie!!! We all have our own ships hahhaha plus no pressure in reading the series the movies were actually really good. YESS Harry gets on my nerves sometimes but well I guess hes just a typical teenager sometimes XD

      Thank you for always reading and supporting Sophie! I’ll look forward for your post as well :>

  4. I was all for Gale at the start of The Hunger Games but the last book ruined him for me. I think the movies make it easier to fall for Peeta somehow too. I’m also scared of horror but want to start picking it up more and have a few books from the genre on my TBR. I’ve only seen the film of Paper Towns but I did enjoy it. I somehow still haven’t read a John Green book 🙈
