A while ago I did the Unpopular Opinions Tag and you guys seem to have really enjoyed it so how about a round 2? Brace yourselves guys, this might just get ugly. I’m kidding but I might just hit you in the feels.
What is a popular book or series that you didn’t like?
My Sister the Serial Killer – I listened to the audiobook and was bored. I’d heard so many good things about it but I just couldn’t get on with the plot or narration. But it’s up for a load of awards so other people seem to like it.
What is a popular book or series that everyone else seems to hate but you love?
I’ve gone back a little bit here (I couldn’t find anything recent that would fit this) – there is so much hate online for Looking For Alaska by John Green. Now, it has been a long time since I read it but I really, really enjoyed the book.
I think it was the second book by John Green I ever read and I thought it was well written and can’t remember having any issues with it.
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?
I actually can’t think of any, I guess the closest I can think of is Katniss and Peeta in The Hunger Games. Peeta was so pure and kind and I just don’t see it working with the two of them. Sorry not sorry.
What is a popular book genre that you hardly reach for?
Horror isn’t something I choose to read, I think if it had a really interesting plot I might try it but I just can’t seem to get into it! That and I have a really vivid imagination for that kind of stuff and will probably have the worst nightmares.
What is a popular or beloved character that you do not like?
There is a lot of love for Draco Malfoy in the Potter fandom and personally I don’t get it. He was a brat and a bully throughout the series and ultimately he was a coward. Nope, no love for Draco although a LOT of love for Tom Felton because he’s amazing.
Who is a popular author that you can’t seem to get into?
Rainbow Rowell. I tried to read Fangirl and I just really struggled to care and none of the other books interest me.
What is a popular book trope that you are tired of seeing?
Quiet girl who has been a nobody catches the eye of the most popular guy in school, romance ensues *swoon*. Nope, nope, nope. It gets so boring.
What is a popular book or series that you have no interest in reading?
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell, I tried Fangirl and found it really boring and when I tried to read it it just seemed like a Harry Potter rip off – oops!
What is a movie or TV show adaption of a book or series that you like more than the book/s?
Only because of the length but Game of Thrones. The first book took me so long to get through and there were so many names and so much going on. I might change my mind when I pick them up again.
Did you agree with any of my unpopular opinions? Or do you have any of your own? Let me know in the comments below!
