Since I love sharing my opinions with you guys and I love even more complaining, you shouldn't be surprised to see this thing coming.
I have a thing for unpopular opinions, besides the fact that I am always the damn one who disagree about hyped books. Plus, I enjoy writing and reading rant reviews. They are just my favourite ones.
Of course it's not nice disliking a book that I though was going to be amazing, but tell that to writers who sometimes put bad tropes in a YA -always the same ones-, bad romance and they mix it up with problematic stuff and bad writing.
*YEAH, I HAVE BEEN WATCHING THE GILMORE GIRLS, IF YOU HAVEN'T NOTICED.
Let's just start! HERE you can find the original tag on booktube. Hope you enjoy!
A Popular Book or series that you didn't like.
I'll go with American Gods, a book by Neil Gaiman that I read last summer.
- It completely, truly disappointed me. A lot.
- I spent almost a month trying to finish this book. I would have DNF it, if I hadn't been such me. So I read it and I deserve a cake for that. Definitely. A big one.
- I didn't like at all the MC and couldn't connect with the other characters.
- Warning, folks: this isn't a YA. It contains a lot of sex graphic scenes that the me of a year ago didn't know anything about before reading it. They disturbed me.
- I didn't understand the whole thing, though. The characters were confusing and dialogues didn't help at all.
A Popular Book or series that every one else seems to hate but you love.
The Cursed Child was a big no for many readers, but I liked it.
I loved Thirteen Reasons Why. I read it on a friend advice and I have never regretted it.
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.
Okay, it won't be any spoiler, but this is the thing: I didn't like how Blue turned out to be in Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda. Besides the weak writing choice, I didn't like them. Considering the fact that many people liked that and I didn't, that gives me a lot of points more.
A popular book Genre that you hardly reach for.
I really don't like non fiction books. For that, I believe, there is school.
A popular or beloved character that you do not like.
The first one that comes into my mind is Noah Shaw from the Mara Dyer trilogy. Why? He is so cliché and I connected to him like I connect to a pineapple pizza. Dear Noah,
Well said, Noora.
A popular author that you can't seem to get into.
Becky Albertally. Unfortunately, I have read two of her books and I don't think I'll read something by hers in the future.
A popular book trope that you're tired of seeing. (examples "lost princess", corrupt ruler, love triangles, etc.)
Here are some:
- love triangles;
- insta love;
- the love interest cures the MC;
- orphan child;
- the bad boy;
- the bad boy who loves a good girl.
A popular series that you have no interest in reading.
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 mentioned it earlier, Simons vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda is a cute book, but a better movie, in my opinion. Apart from one thing that I disapprove a lot, I liked the movie a little more. Don't kill me, guys.
Okay, those were the questions and my answers! Now you can totally answer in the comments or make a blog post about it. Feel yourself tagged!
