These are my unpopular opinions. OPINIONS. Please understand that when I say OPINIONS I mean OPINIONS. You can argue with me.
Alright. *Deep breaths* Let's go.
1. A Popular Book/Series You Didn't Like
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green; Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas; Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card; Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
2. A Popular Book/Series Everyone Hates But You Love
The Selection by Kiera Cass. Just seems like there's a lot of hate surrounding this series. I admit I didn't LOVE the second book, but The Selection and The One were adorable!
3. A Love Triangle Where The Protagonist Ended Up With The Person You Didn't Want Them To Be With
To be honest, I still haven't made up my mind. I liked one guy(Chase), then I didn't like him. And I'm still not sure I'm on board with the current relationship(after the second book). I need the conclusion to the series before I make up my mind!
4. A Popular Genre You Hardly Read
Contemporary Fiction. I like a lot of Contemporary Fiction, but I tend to read more Fantasy and Historical...
5. A Popular/Beloved Character You Dislike
Severus Snape and Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter Series.
They're both bullies! And yes, I've read all seven books. Yes, I do respect Snape on some levels. But there is NOT reason enough for him to act the way he does. Especially (highlight to see spoilers from book 3) when he wanted to leave Sirius to the dementors even though he must have KNOWN there was a good chance he was innocent! He just didn't want to think that Harry might have been right. He couldn't let go of his petty feelings and jealousies.
And Draco! Everyone has such a HUGE crush on Draco.
I hate this guy. Talk about petty. He's not even that witty. He's not a nice guy. He even makes a pitiful bad guy. He's just....annoying.
6. A Popular Author You Can't Seem to Get Into
1. Richard Paul Evans
2. John Green
3. Liz Curtis Higgs
4. James Dashner (He's not bad, really!)
7. A Popular Trope You're Tired of Reading
-(Wait, I'm a WHAT?) He's/She's a Princess, Wizard, Fairy, Angel, Super Hero, etc. and didn't know it. (Not that this is a bad trope, and can't be done well...It's just used a lot).
- The beautiful main character who is convinced she's plain or ugly.
8. A Popular Series You Have No Interest In Reading
The Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer and The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.
9. A Show/Movie Adaptation You Liked Better Than The Book
It took me forever to come up with one for this question. Out of all the books I've read that have been made into movies I either liked the book better, or hadn't seen the movie. Or I'd seen the movie but hadn't read the book. I couldn't think of anything. Until I scrolled way down a list of book to movie adaptations and found The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot.
This is an adorable movie! And wayyy better than the book. I remember reading the book in Middle School and thinking "What is this?" (Just FYI: Not an appropriate series for Middle School girls).
10. A Popular Style of Cover That You Can't Stand
Yes, this is Cait's unsolicited addition to the tag. But I liked the question! And 10 is much better than 9! So here are some covers I love to hate:
I should clarify. It's not the style of Heir of Fire I don't like. It's the girl. She's scary...and ugly. Now, I know Celaena's scary. But she's also described as beautiful, so what happened here?
And covers with shirtless guys on them don't hold much appeal to me either. Particularly the ones that don't have foreheads. Is that sunlight blaring from his chest?
I tag: Alexa @ Summer Snowflakes; Ana @ Butterflies of the Imagination; Katie @ A Writer's Faith; Opal @ Opal Swirls; and Heather @ Sometimes I'm a Story
Okay. NOW you can lay into me.
Just a note: I'll be at summer camp all next week, so, unless I get some posts scheduled, I won't be around much at all until I get back.
