Unpopular Opinions Book Tag


I was tagged by Melissa @ In a Bookish World to complete the Unpopular Opinions Book Tag. I think I’ve done this one before, but it’s been a while so I thought I would do it again. Maybe my answers have changed. 😉 Thank you, Melissa!

 1. A popular book or series you didn’t like.


Well, I can’t say I hated it. I loved it until about 2/3 of the way through and then I hated it. I didn’t read the rest of the series after that.

2. A popular book or series that everyone else seems to hate but you love.


Okay, so not everyone hates this book, but there are just as many people that hate it as there are that love it. I’m in the love category, obviously.

3. A love triangle where the main character ended up with the person you did NOT want them to end up with (warn people for spoilers) OR an OTP that you don’t like.


(Is it just me that sings OPP by Naughty By Nature every time I see OTP? I’m weird, I know.)

OTP: Get ready to boo me. I didn’t like Anna and Étienne St. Clair. No matter how unhappy the dude was, HE HAD A GIRLFRIEND. Ugh. It just ruined it for me.

4. A popular genre that you hardly reach for.

Again, get ready to boo. Fantasy. I’ve liked the ones I’ve read that were recommended to me, but it’s not a genre I gravitate towards.

5. A popular or beloved character that you do not like.


America. She was okay in The Selection, but I wanted to knock her upside the head in the 43 pages I read of The Elite. Yet another popular series I didn’t finish.

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


Sorry, Paula Hawkins. The hype around The Girl on the Train ruined it and possibly your future books for me. We’ll see…

7. A popular book trope that you’re tired of seeing.

I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s popular, but I truly dislike the whole student-teacher relationship trope. I know I’ve said it before, but some boundaries shouldn’t not be crossed. This is one. Maybe it’s because I’m parent now, but I have to trust teachers. No way I want my daughter pursuing/being pursued by a teacher. I don’t care if she’s an eighteen-year-old high school senior and he’s twenty-three. Boundaries!

8. A popular series that you have no interest in reading.


I think I read my vampire quotient when I finished reading The Twilight Saga.

(BTW, I was double checking the meaning of quotient to make sure I was using the right word and this example sentenced popped up: And since the WTF quotient is so very low, some see it as, well,masturbatory.”  Um…huh? I wonder who they let write that definition sentence? Kind of scandalous, if you ask me. 😉 )

9. 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?


I’m digging Syfy’s version of The Magicians more than I remember enjoying the book. Not that I didn’t think the book was good, I just like the way they’re bringing it to life. (And I do have to admit I never read past book 1.)

There you have it, my unpopular opinions. Hopefully, I didn’t offend anyone.

I’m going to tag the following people. Feel free to ignore if you’ve already done the tag or aren’t interested in it.

  1. Good decision with A Daughter of Smoke and Bone. There were things to like in Books 2 and 3, but I think my time would have been better spent on some other books!
    Thank you for tagging me. I could definitely do this one as I seem to differ in my opinions about lots of books to the majority! (I’m starting to wonder if I’m quite grumpy!). 🙂

    • Exactly! I think what irritated me about it all was how she knew he had a girlfriend but then kept obsessing over him. I get attraction and all, but I don’t think she even really tried to move on. I never felt like she was fighting her feelings. I don’t have a huge problem with cheating in books if there is some kind of resistance and trying to avoid the situation because I think that happens in real life. But this one bugged me.

  2. Don’t worry, I finished the entire Selection series and still don’t know what the hype is about. They’re fun easy reads but my goodness, nothing happens and the writing is meh. America is dumb too. I did read The Siren which I preferred to The Selection but I think that Cass just isn’t the greatest writer.

  4. Glad to know I’m not the only one that has no interest in the Vampire Academy series. Personally I think vampires are overrated and honestly I just don’t find that the vampire mythology is that interesting. I much prefer the angels haha. 😛

  5. I totally agree with you on daughter of smoke and bone! I’ve really liked the first book in the trilogy but the other two books are kinda disappointing. I haven’t read the selection series but I’ve seen so many readers not liking the character named America. 😀

  6. I so agree on The Magicians show really doing a great job at bringing the books to life! I had some issues with the books, even though I remember liking the second and third book a lot more than the first one. The cast is the best though and it looks high quality-like on screen. I love how engaging they are on Twitter. I have like a little back and forth with the actor who plays Penny every week hahaha
