Unpopular Opinions Book Tag

I saw this tag over at Rebel Mommy Book Blog and it looked liked a lot of fun! 

The original tag was created by The Book Archer

So let's get started!!

A Popular Book or Series That You Didn't Like

Okay- I have only read the first book in this series and I just was not blown away by it. I think the hype might have ruined it for me. I had very high expectations for it and they were not met. I do plan to give this series another try. I do REALLY like Tahereh Mafi. She seems like an amazing person. I also enjoy her writing style. I really want to give it another chance and I hear the second installment is much better. 

A Popular Book or Series 
That Everyone Else Seems To Hate But You Love 

I rarely hear people rave about this series. I know it far from perfect, but I LOVED the first book in this series. I think it is pure genius. There are so many elements in this book that I thought were amazing. It does have a little bit of insta-love in it. The world building is great and well thought out. I also enjoyed the rest of the series.  

A Love Triangle Where The Main Character Ended Up With The Person 
You Did NOT Want Them To End Up With

Yes. I was disappointed, but not surprised. I know there is not a strong love triangle in this book, but I was extremely disappointed in the outcome. 

 A Popular Book Genre That You Hardly Reach For

I hardly ever reach for thrillers or horror novels. I do enjoy a good psychological thriller. I just do not enjoy really dark or scary books. 

A Popular or Beloved Character That You Do Not Like

Under The Never Sky 
by Veronica Rossi

Aria. She annoyed me and she fell a little flat for me. I liked a lot of the other characters in this series, but Aria just did not make the cut for me. 

A Popular Author 
That You Can't Seem To Get Into

I was extremely disappointed with the third book in the series. It seemed like a repeat of the second book, especially as far the dialogue and flow of the story went. I did not finish this series. I still would like to give this author another chance. The Leviathan series does interest me and I do own the first book in that series.   

A Popular Book Trope That You Are Tired of Seeing
(ex. lost princess, corrupt ruler, love triangles, etc.) 

Definitey insta-love. I know it is a book and things have to move faster than reality. But I hate when characters fall in love with no reason or events that bring them to that point. When it is just 'because', it gets annoying. 

A Popular Series 
That You Have No Interest In Reading

I feel like there are so many series out there like this one. 
 My interest and taste are constantly changing. Sometimes I might read a review that changes my perspective and opens up a closed door. But at the time I have no interest in reading this series. 

The Saying Goes "The Book Is Always Better Than The Movie",
 But What Movie or TV Show Adaptation Do You Prefer More Than The Book?

To be perfectly honest- I have not read this book. I watched the movie first and I know my heart could not handle this book. It was heart-wretching and I think of this movie A LOT. It was by far the most devastating movie I have ever watched. It was extremely well done but the story killed me. I have never cried so hard and so long for any movie. Just thinking of it now, gives me the chills and I could easily start crying. Books definitely stick with me more so I know I could NOT handle reading this book. That is why I prefer the movie to the book. 

Thanks for visiting! If you have done this tag or plan to do it, I would to hear your answers too! 
Happy Reading!!


  1. Oh I love the Delirium series!! I agree people don't seem to have as much love as I think it deserves. I still haven't read the Shatter Me series but it is on my list. I totally agree with the Hunger Games and how it ended. Fun answers!

    1. Thanks for the great tag idea! I had a lot of fun coming up with the answers. I am glad we agree on Delirium and Hunger Games. Those are definitely unpopular opinions!

  2. I have Delirium on my Kindle and have put it off for all of these years mostly because of the mixed reviews. I really should read it and find out for myself.
    The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is an absolute favorite of my daughters. I haven't read the book or seen the movie.

    1. You will probably either love it or hate it! The other books in the series are fine but Delirium is my favorite in the series.
      I cannot imagine ever reading The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. It would definitely break my heart.
