Well, I wouldn’t be a good book blogger if I didn’t talk about the good and the bad! I loved watching this when Cece over at Problems of a Book Nerd did this tag! Keep in mind these are my opinions but I’d love to know yours at the end of this post!
What is a popular book or series that you didn’t like?
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I really hated the twist to me it just seemed kind of boring? I’ve met very few people who agree with me!
What is a popular book or series that everyone else seems to hate but you love?
So, I took a look at this list to see what people had claimed to hate. I couldn’t believe Jane Eyre was on there, I absolutely adored it! It was incredible and a wonderful novel.
What is a love triangle in a book or series where the main character ended up with the person you did not want them to end up with?
This is a difficult one, most of the time I agree with what the author says BUT I didn’t like what happened in The Hunger Games. It didn’t feel like Katniss got the ending she deserved, not did Gale, nor did Peeta.
What is a popular book genre that you hardly reach for?
Romance, it’s not something that I’m interested in and I find them too samey.
What is a popular or beloved character that you do not like?
Snape. I don’t care what he did towards the end he was a bully and a coward. Sorry, not sorry.
Who is a popular author that you can’t seem to get into?
E.L. James, I don’t get the 50 Shades thing, I had to read some for uni and before that, I wanted to know what the fuss was about. The writing was awful, truly, truly awful.
What is a popular book trope that you are tired of seeing?
People being arseholes/ terrible people and the only reason given is that they have a mental illness. Over it, add some depth.
What is a popular book or series that you have no interest in reading?
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I read Meyer’s Heartless a while ago and it just wasn’t the kind of book I thought it would be and I was disappointed with the plot. It’s because of that I won’t be picking up the Lunar Chronicles.
What is a movie or TV show adaption of a book or series that you like more than the book/s?
Bridget Jones! I couldn’t stand the books when I read them, I couldn’t get on with the writing style at all but I absolutely love the films.
