Unpopular Opinion Book Tag || I Hate Your Favorites And I’m Not Ashamed

Hello loves! I was tagged by Eternity Books for the Unpopular Opinion Book tag and thought why not do it? I’m fairly vocal about my unpopular opinions so I might as well lay it all out for you guys to burn me for ❤

 

A popular book you didn’t like

31931941

Eliza and her Monsters | This book was SO HYPED last year and I was SO PUMPED to read it and then I just…really hated it. Eliza is such a brat and I hate her so much omg.

 

A book series that everyone hates but you love

10507293

The Selection Series | Like legit I know that this book is super problematic and I should hate it but I just don’t. It’s my guilty pleasure. Probably because I read it when I was 12 and loved it if I read it now for the first time I doubt I’d feel the same way.

 

Love triangle where the MC ends up with the person you didn’t want them to end up with

2767052

The Hunger Games | #teamgale okay? I can’t help it that Peeta is just so completely useless.

 

A popular genre you rarely reach for

Classics | Does that count as popular? I always see people praising Jane Austin and Charles Dickens etc etc but I just can’t put up with classics they’re so dry.

 

A popular character you didn’t like

17453983

Anna from Anna and the French Kiss | This girl is literally the absolute worst and I can not quite express how much I hate her. With all my soul she’s so irritating and completely stupid and yeah.

 

A popular author you can’t seem to get into

Kiersten White | I read her entire Paranormalcy trilogy and then another standalone and I lowkey hated them all and now she has these really hyped releases and I just don’t want to read them lol.

 

A popular trope you’re tired of seeing

Love Triangles | Arghhh I hate love triangles so much anyone they’re so infuriating and frustrating asiljkdf

 

A popular series you have no interest in reading

22328546

Red Queen | Technically I’ve already started this and read the first book but I have no interest in continuing it; it’s so cliche and unrealistic and predictable and annoying.

 

*The saying goes “the book is always better than the movie” but what movie do you prefer to the book?

I can’t think of one right now? I guess the book really is always better ❤

 

Tag! You’re it!

Malanie | Rebecca | Lili | Kelly | You!

  1. I love the selection! I didn’t realize how much hate it gets but I enjoyed it. I agree that Peeta is useless physically but I think that he provides Katniss with the emotional support that Gale would have struggled with.

  2. What? I loved the Selection series 💗, and I even went on to read Evelyn’s POV. I really enjoyed this tag, and your responses. But, please try Red Queen again, there’s such a HUGE plot twist near the end. It’s probably one of the biggest I’ve ever read. And there’s so many more plot twists.

  3. I both loved and hated The Selection trilogy. It definitely kept me up late but I do have issues with the whole “pitting girls against each other over a man” concept, LOL. My unpopular book opinion would probably be that I LOVED the Red Queen series even though it drives me insane (it’s way too long…I still haven’t read book 4 LOL).

  4. OOOOH I LOVE SNARKY TAGS! Thank you, Kay! Hahaha. 😂 I was a die hard team Gale for the longest time, but I eventually concluded that Katniss didn’t deserve either love interest lol. And the Red Queen series is not my cup of tea! As for the Selection series, I didn’t mind the first book, but wasn’t a huge fan of the second one. Anywho, I really loved reading all your answers! Haha 😊

  5. agreed so hard on several of these! I didn’t like Eliza, sorrynotsorry, I thought I would relate to her, but nope! I WISH I liked classics because I feel dumb for not getting their appeal, but aaagh, I would rather dig out my eyeballs. and LOVE TRIANGLES ARE THE WORRRSSSST, the end.

  6. Yep- not into classics and so not gonna read any! Post-war and really old stuff is just erhh to me .. 🤷🏽‍♀️

    Awhh.. i really related to Eliza; yes, she can appear as a brat- but anxiety make me lose my temper and act a bit like that sometimes 😓 WAY less now, and of course it’s no excuses, but before i got medicated I was soo bad… so yeah! Xd sorry you couldn’t enjoy that one! Hype can either be really GOOD or end up really badly- no in-between it seems ..
