Unpopular Opinions Book Tag!

Hey there lovelies,

Today I have decided to tag it up after seeing Thoughts on Tomes video with this fabulous tag (I love me some unpopular opinions, kitty got claws... (original video by The Book Archer)

So check out after the jump for which of these books I'll taking down a peg or two in today's Unpopular Opinions Tag!


*spoiler alert* it's none...this is a cheeky snap of my TBR shelf...

1. A Popular Book or series that you didn't like:

There are a few, but one in particular comes to mind, Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell, I've mentioned this before in my April wrap up, but there are just so many problems with this book!

2. A Popular Book or series that every one else seems to hate but you love:

I'm not sure about hate buuuuuuuuuut...I've seen some quite mixed reviews for the Sin Eater's Daughter which I actually quite enjoyed. I'm guessing it's probably because I'm not really into fantasy so this "fantasy-lite" type book works for me but not for fantasy fans.

3. A Love Triangle where the main character ended up with the person you did NOT want them to end up with (warn ppl for spoilers) OR an OTP that you don't like:

Ugh, I really don't care about love triangles and I'm not really a shipper. I don't really read much YA either. Also I had to look up "OTP", it means one true pairing FYI (and btw, it's really sad that some people don't want to tell others the definition of this!). Ok but let me think about this... Oh actually I do know, Gone Girl, how it ends. Really takes no explanation. Although I did "like" it in a twisted I like what you did there way.

4. A popular book Genre that you hardly reach for:

Fantasy and historical - I'm keeping trying though!

5. A popular or beloved character that you do not like:

Hmmm this is a tough one...a few spring to mind, although I don't know how beloved they are really, but Bridget Jones is really, REALLY annoying. Also, I don't get how anyone can piss their pants over Patrick Bateman (American Psycho) although I'm assured that this may be due to totally different movie adaptation.

6. A popular author that you can't seem to get into:

Rainbow Rowell, it's weird because I actually do like her writing style, but having tried Fangirl and Eleanor & Park I just found them to be really flawed. Especially Eleanor & Park. And her note at the end of the book "explaining" the end just really put me off her as a person!

7. A popular book trope that you're tired of seeing. (examples "lost princess", corrupt ruler, love triangles, etc.):

love triangles don't really bother me, but I guess the question up there about the "OTP" has stuck with me and I have to say that. The cheesy eye-rolling pairing which is obvious from the beginning and both the characters and vapid and annoying and you don't really care anyway. OH and of course, the hot female geek transformation, because she couldn't be loved as a geek AND not totally hot right?

8. A popular series that you have no interest in reading:

I wouldn't say no interest, but Games of Thrones? I've tried to start it, and probably will keep trying because of what it is but I really just don't think it's for me, don't watch or plan on watching the TV series either.

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:

I was going to say this was really tough but actually as I read the question as I went to answer them (rather than listening to other people's answers) it's actually SUPER easy: Orange is the New Black! I read the book and while of course it was more realistic, it was a bit boring to be honest!

Do you agree with any of my unpopular opinions? Or do you want me to hit me over the head for a few? regardless let me know your feelings below!

1. A Popular Book or series that you didn't like.
