Unpopular Opinions Book Tag


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.


Why?

  • 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!

Ambitious summer TBR || 2018



After failing the previous Spring TBR*, I am baaaack with another season-themed TBR.

So, here is the thing: I am not that kind of person who plan their month TBR, so a season one, it's the one that I need. In order also to try to actually read something, I need to at least write the books I want to read in a certain amount of time, BUT the monthly one makes me nervous.

*I read 3 out of 9 books I planned, so I did something!





Apart from the books I have to read because I haven't yet from the Spring one, these are the ones I am planning to read this summer.



I have waited a whole year because I wanted to read this series in summer. It has summer in the title and I am not going to read that after!








If there one thing that I don't want to at all is to finish this series. I love the characters too much, I know this is gonna end up in tears. My tears








It's years I have been wanting to read this series and this is the summer I am going to do it!!








This is the book will actually decide if I am going to finish this series or not. I ended up pretty disappointed by the second one, so.








I am so keen about reading this one! Since I am a very coherent human, I am going to read this one in summer when it's called Wintersong. Yeah.








I know I shouldn't want to read this trilogy just because I want to read Six Of Crows, but that's the truth.







I am a little worried because last summer I read and didn't enjoy The Siren by the same author, but I so want to read this one because this will be my first read in Spanish! So excited about that!








I have always wanted to read a Sarah Dessen book and, since it's my friend Carrie favourite, I want to start with this one, this summer.







I read and loved His Dark Materials by the same author and I am ready to read this series too!




I loved this when I first read it, but it's been four years and, in order to finish the series, I want to re-read this one. I am really scared to, though. I know I might not like it as much as the first time I read it, that's why.




Have you read any of these books or planning to? Which books do you include in your summer TBR? Let me know with a comment!
