The Unpopular Opinions Book Tag

Disclaimer: I’m putting this here because regardless of which form of social media others use to post this tag I’ve seen they often get a lot of hate comments or people trying to start arguments. Please note these are merely my opinions and the questions are ones which I find hard enough answering anyway – books are just that good! So feel free to answer the questions in the comments with your own answers or make suggestions but remember everyone is entitled to their own opinion, even you and myself!

What is a popular book or series that you didn’t like?

I don’t really dislike any popular book series or stand alone novels… I suppose it took me sometime to actually like the Twilight series written by Stephanie Meyer, if that counts as an answer to this question.

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

I know it’s not a book as such and is more of a script but I really enjoyed reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K Rowling et. al. Personally I accept the events which occurred in Cursed Child as canon. 

What is a love triangle in a book or series where the main character ended up with the person you did not want them to end up with?

I’m not really sure if this counts but I am going to say the characters of Cath, Levi and Nick in the book Fangirl written by Rainbow Rowell. With these two boys playing a significant part in Caths life, I just remember wishing for the first half of the book that she would eventually end up with Nick. Those who have read the book know how that guy turned out… 

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

Romance – Just romance novels without any action or twists or mix of other genres such as fantasy. A plain romance novel is a genre of book which I rarely ever read. However, I’m not opposed to being recommended them and will always give them a try.

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

Edward Cullen from the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer. I just wasn’t that into him. Team Edward? Team Jacob? I was neither, in fact I was on a league of my own and living in the world of Team Jasper! 

Who is a popular author that you can’t seem to get into?

I’m yet to meet an author whose works I can’t get into. 

What is a popular book trope that you are tired of seeing?

Absent parents. Sure there are books in which the absense of the parents is explained whether that be a permanent absense or just temporary at times. However, with most fantasy novels comes this trope of the parents just never seeming to be around without explanation. Their children go off and have adventures and not once are they even contacted by their parents to ask where they are etc. 

What is a popular book or series that you have no interest in reading?

Game of Thrones by George. R. R. Martin. I did start to read the first book and by that I mean that I read the first page and then just stopped.

What is a movie or TV show adaption of a book or series that you like more than the book/s?

American Assassin. The book American Assassin by Vince Flynn is the ‘first’ novel in the Mitch Rapp series and acts as an origin type tale of how the young man came to be one of the greatest assassins known within the C.I.A. Whilst I enjoyed reading the book, the movie was significantly better for many reasons, the main reason? GHOST.
