Unpopular Opinions Book Tag

Today I will be doing the Unpopular Opinions Book Tag! This tag was originally created by The Book Archer on YouTube. Please remember that if I didn't like a book/series that you love, that doesn't mean that you can't like it. In fact, I wish I could have liked it as much as other people did. Let's get on with the questions!

Q: What is a popular book or series that you didn't like?

A: I read The Selection by Kiera Cass about two years ago, and I really didn't enjoy it. I just did not like America Singer, didn't care about Prince Maxon, and overall thought the plot was pretty unoriginal.

Q: What is a popular book or series that everyone seems to hate, but you love?

A: A lot of people hate The Maze Runner books, and while I did not want to read the rest of the series, I did really like books one and two.

Q: What is one love triangle where the main character did NOT end up with the person that you wanted them to end up with?


Alina ended up with the wrong person. Nikolai and Alina forever <3 Mal can leave.

Q: What is a popular book genre that you hardly reach for?

A: I don't read very much historical fiction, even though I do usually enjoy it. I need to pick up some more soon.

Q: What is a popular or beloved character that you do not like?

A: Nicholas Carter. I hated him so much that I just had to look up his name because I blocked it out of my memory. He is the love interest in the Passenger duology by Alexandra Bracken. And while I didn't really like the book anyway, I did relate to Etta as a character, but I COULD NOT STAND Nicholas.

Q: What is one popular author that you can't seem to get into?

A: Cassandra Clare. WAIT BEFORE YOU KILL ME, and let me explain myself. So I have read The Infernal Devices trilogy after DNFing City of Bones. I did enjoy the ending of each book, but I was always bored throughout most of the middle. HOWEVER, I will be trying to read The Mortal Instruments again in the future, and hope to enjoy it like everyone else seems to.

Q: What is one popular book trope you are tired of seeing?

A: The Chosen One book trope gets on my nerves. I am perfectly fine with a main character having a hidden power, or finding out a secret about themselves, but when they magically find out that they are the strongest being in all the lands it comes across as frustrating and too convenient.

Q: What is a popular series that you have no interest in reading?

A: The Game of Thrones series by George R.R. Martin. I don't watch the show, and I don't really have any interest in it. Perhaps I'll change my mind in the future.

Q: The saying goes, "the book is always better than the movie," but what movie/tv adaptation is better than the book?

A: If I Stay by Gayle Forman was an eh book. However, I really enjoyed the movie and I felt like the plot was easier to get through in a shorter amount of time rather than having to trudge through the whole book.
