Unpopular Opinions Book Tag | Bibliomad

I was tagged by my fave, Laura, to complete this tag. I highly recommend you check out her blog as she is awesome. You can do so by clicking here. Now, let’s get on into the tag!


1

A popular book that you didn’t like.

To Kill a Mockingbird

Not bad, but not as good as everyone makes out. In my opinion, anyway. I just found it a little boring, and – at times – tedious.

⋘2

A book/series that everyone seems to hate, but you love.

Allegiant (Divergent, #3)

The life-shattering twist that everyone hates? I liked it! It was unique and definitely unprecedented, and wrapped the story up as well as I really wanted – I love finishing a book with questions and theories one can discuss with other readers.

⋘3

A love triangle where the main character ended up with the person that you didn’t want to end up with, or an O.T.P. (one true paring) that you don’t like.

The Thomas and Brenda ship? No thanks!

⋘4

A popular book genre that you hardly reach for.

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)

High fantasy. I can never get into it. I prefer to read books that are based in my world, so I can relate to them, and picture them a lot more. I am, however, currently reading A Game of Thrones. I’ve been reading it for so long now, but I vow I will finish it before 2015 is up!

⋘5

A popular or beloved character that you do not like.

Twilight (Twilight, #1)

Jacob Black. Cringe cringe cringe cringe cringe.

⋘6

A popular author that you can’t seem to get into.

I don’t have an answer for this one – I’ve never really experienced not being able to get into a popular book. There are a few authors whose writing I haven’t particularly favoured, but I wouldn’t say I was into it. So I don’t really know.

⋘7

A popular book trope that you’re tired of seeing. (examples “lost princess”, corrupt ruler, love triangles, etc.)

The Rest of Us Just Live Here

“The Chosen One”. That’s why I’m super excited to read The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness. The plot surrounds not being the chosen one, but instead being the cool sidekick with no powers whatsoever. Awesome.

⋘8

A popular series that you have no interest in reading.

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)

I don’t know why, but this book series just never appealed to me. I’m kind of over the whole fantasy book set in a school theme.

⋘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?

Let’s just not mention the books for now…

    I liked Jacob in the first book. But after he turned all wolf I started to dislike him. My favorite character in Twilight was Rosaline 🙂

    I bought the first book in the Game of Thrones (I know what’s not the series’ name, but I keep forgetting it). I haven’t started reading it; it’s on my TBR list of 2016.

    I didn’t read Gossip Girls, but I’ve seen the TV-show. It was pretty good, at least the first seasons were. Not very fond of season 5-6.

      I’ve never been very keen on Jacob, really, but that’s just me. I loved Rosalie – such a great background.

      A Song of Ice and Fire? It’s something like that haha! I’m borrowing it off a friend – she’s very patient, or must be, because I’ve had it for a long while now…

      I agree that it kind of went downhill, and the first few seasons were definitely my favourite. However, once I got to the final season, I couldn’t stop watching, because I knew I was on the final streak.

        I liked Jacob because he was normal, and had more in common with Bella, due to his age and mortality 😀

        Oh, don’t get me wrong. I watched all seasons. However, I think it would’ve been even more epic if they would’ve finished the series sooner. Quality vs quantity. And maybe do a movie or something, later on. And Dan being Gossip Girl? It came out of nowhere, and it doesn’t really connect with the first couple of seasons. Oh, well. Another nice TV-show was Revenge. Only 4 seasons, but it was pretty good.

        I think Dan as GG was actually quite predictable – if you watch the first episode knowing the answer it is very obvious.
