I’m finally being on time with a tag! Three days ago Amy tagged me to do the Unpopular Opinions book tag. This tag was created by TheBookArcher on BookTube.

I’m pretty excited to go ahead and answer these questions as it’ll be a nice break from all the reviews I’m thinking of writing.

1. A popular book or series that you didn’t like
I’m going with a recent DNF book for this one and its Enchantée by Gita Trelease. I really wanted to enjoy this and I still have small regrets for not giving up on it but it was just too slow for me.

2. A popular book or series that every one else seems to hate but you love
The answer for this one is a little hit or miss because as the series has progressed, and now finished, I’m noticing more love for it. But given that one of The Bone Witch‘s popular shelves of Goodreads is DNF, I think I’m safe to say that as my answer.

3. A love triangle where the main character ended up with the person you did NOT want them to end up with OR an OTP that you don’t like
Shatter Me. It knocked me sick reading the first book and there is nothing that can be done to redeem him for later books.

4. A popular book genre that you hardly reach for
Easily contemporary. I’ll try the odd few books but they really have to speak to me and I’m more likely to try them if I can borrow a copy.

5. A popular or beloved character that you do not like
 The male characters in Empress of All Seasons, even though I know why we have their point of views and they added to the story I still wasn’t a fan. However they didn’t effect my love for the book!

6. A popular author that you can’t seem to get into
Its not that I can’t get into her work. Its just that I haven’t tried properly; Leigh Bardugo. I own most of her work but have yet to read any.

7. A popular book trope that you’re tired of seeing
I’m not really tired of any tropes tbh. Lack of communication as a plot point? I dunno, I’m pretty happy to give most things a try as theres a chance another author might do it justice.

8. A popular series that you have no interest in reading
Oh there’s a few! Cassie Clares have made that list recently, there is just too many sorry. The Selection series and Red Queen series too.

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?
Easily The Lovely Bones. I hate talking about this book because it gets me so frustrated at how bad and gross the ending is. But honestly I don’t remember if it also happens in the movie? I guess I could say To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before too as I have no desire to read that trilogy but I will watch it.

This was fun to type up and definitely a nice change of pace. I’ll be tagging Jenny, Allie, Jenn, and Imi.

  1. I’d have very similar answers to a lot of these too. I tried City of Bones and Enchantee and wasn’t wowed. I’m not going to continue either series.

  2. Oddly enough, I own a lot of the books you mention; I’ve just never read them.
    Ugh. Lack of communication as a plot point is just so tiring.

  3. I loved reading this Lauren! I definitely wasn’t surprised by your answer to Q4. ;) I had the same thoughts about the male characters while reading Empress, I didn’t warm to them very much and they didn’t really leave a lasting impression, sadly!

  4. Currently reading the Bone Witch now and I’m really liking it. I think out of all the opinions you had the only one I would say I disagree with is the Shatter Me one! Defy Me recently came out and made me feel even more for what Warner and Juliette had gone through. I really like their relationship and it’s the one that has made me get into books since I was a kid!

    And god…Red Queen was a terrible series. The author isn’t the nicest person either.

    1. i never read past the first book unfortunately, it was a very big trigger for me on how he treated her so i couldn’t approach further books ;; its one of the few books left me sick.
      i rly hope u love the bone witch tho, the series destroyed me and theres a video floating around twitter of me crying over the shadowglass

  5. Completely agree with not being interested in Red Queen! I read the first one when it came out but just didn’t get the hype. Plus the author has put me off quite a bit.

  6. I should really watch The Lovely Bones. I read the book ages ago but never got around to the movie. And I get you about Cassandra Clare. There are sooo many and all in the same world and many following the same characters! It’s almost hard to believe xD I hope when you try Leigh Bardugo you’ll be able to enjoy her books a lot. Haha I sort of agree with the Shatter Me series. I may be on the opposite team, but I didn’t think she should have tried to redeem him so completely like that.

  7. As much as I love Cassandra Clare, I don’t think I’d want to own physical copies of all her books, there’s too many, my bookshelves would be filled with just her lol. I have to say I’m the same with contemporary, I’ll borrow from a friend or check out from the library but I won’t go out of my way to search for them unless they really intrigue me. Great answers :) I agreed with most of your answers!

  8. I’m really surprised that The Bone Witch is DNF’d a lot because I really loved it too. Also, Leigh Bardugo’s books are really amazing, especially Six of Crows!

    1. Ive read 15 or so chapters of jer wprl from 2 diff books and i love it im just ??? Idk overwhelmed w a large tbr and i know shes gonna be a good one to pick up after shit reads

  9. Okay so I have only read Shatter Me and not the other books, but I know where it’s heading and I can totally see what you mean!!
    I read so much contemporary because its so easy and light but I get what you mean, it has to really speak to you to stand out. Where as with fantasy and sci fi etc, they are so unique and each one is different!

  10. I always find it interesting to see what people love/hate. I am never one to get upset if someone doesn’t like something that I love, or I hate something that someone else loves. I never understand people who get all worked up about a book that they loved/hated (and didn’t write!) and give people a hard time.

  11. I definitely don’t reach for the contemporary genre very often. When I first began reading, I thought I loved them. But as I expanded in what books I was reading I realized there were much better books for me to read.
