I was tagged by Brookie @ Brookie Cowles to do the unpopular opinions book tag, thank you! In this tag I’ll be answering questions about some of my favourite and least favourite popular books, lets get started…
A Popular book or series that you didn’t like:
The only one that’s coming to mind right now is, The Maze Runner. I got so bored around half way through the first book, I just decided to watch the film to find out the ending, instead of wasting my time finishing the book.
A popular book or series that everyone seems to hate but you love:
Okay, so this is less that people seem to hate this series, but more that I’ve never seen anyone actually talk about it, The Divinicus Nex Chronicles by A&E Kirk. Personally I love this series a lot and think the books are nothing short of hilarious.
A love triangle where the main character ended up with the wrong person or a OTP (one true pairing) that you don’t like:
I will never, ever, get over the fact that Alina didn’t end up with the darkling in The Grisha Trilogy, honestly I was devastated when I read Ruin and Rising. (Sorry if I just spoiled the book for you guys)
A popular book genre that you hardly reach for:
Hmm, probably YA Contemporary, out of all the genres I read, this is probably the one I read less of, although all the books I have read in this genre, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed.
A popular or beloved character that you do not like:
I’m currently sat staring at my bookshelves trying to wrack my brain for the characters I don’t like, because I bloody well know there’s plenty… But absolutely nothing is coming to mind, I’ll probably remember tomorrow and kick myself for forgetting!
A popular author that you can’t seem to get into:
Patrick Ness… I seriously think I started on the wrong book though, the first Patrick Ness book I read was The Rest of Us Just Live Here, and I really think I should have started with a different book, because I really didn’t enjoy The Rest of Us Just Live Here all that much, but I have heard amazing things about a lot of Ness’ other novels. I think, if I do ever pick up another Ness novel, it’ll be A Monster Calls.
A popular book trope that you’re tired of seeing:
Instalove and love triangles, seriously guys, no one ever looks at someone and falls instantly in love with them there and then, it just doesn’t happen. Also, love triangles suck.
A popular series that you have no interest in reading:
Right now (even though I have read the first book), I have no interest in finishing The Raven Cycle… I know, I’m sorry guys! The Maze Runner is another I’m not interested in reading.
The saying goes, “the book is always better than the movie”, but what movie or T.V show adaption do you prefer more than the book:
Again, The Maze Runner, I was definitely less bored watching the film.
