The Unpopular Opinions Book Tag

Happy Monday Tag Day!

A while back I was tagged to do The Unpopular Opinions Book tag by Charlotte Annelise and Painfully Fictional. So, go show their awesome blogs some love!

The Tag:

A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT YOU DIDN’T LIKE:

30095464

I felt like this one had WAY too much backstory and not enough plot. I want to read book 2 to be proven wrong, but if it is anything like this one, then I won’t continue with the series.

 

A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO HATE BUT YOU LOVE:

31020402.jpg

I really can’t figure out why this got so many negative reviews. I loved it and thought it was intriguing!

 

AN OTP THAT YOU DON’T LIKE:

Rowan and Aelin. It was too obvious that they were destined to be bonded, and I did not enjoy their friendship.

A POPULAR BOOK GENRE THAT YOU HARDLY REACH FOR.:

romance-novel

Definitely romance. I really have to be in the mood to read a love story.

A POPULAR/BELOVED CHARACTER THAT YOU DO NOT LIKE:

Rowan from Heir of Fire. I don’t know why, I just did not care for him at all.

A POPULAR AUTHOR THAT YOU CAN’T SEEM TO GET INTO:

Nora Roberts. Even if she didn’t write romance, the few “fantasy” books she has written just did not have enough story and character development to keep me going.

A POPULAR BOOK TROPE THAT YOU’RE TIRED OF SEEING:

Cliche Love Triangle.png

Definitely the love triangle. Occasionally they are entertaining, but they are so overdone!

A POPULAR SERIES THAT YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN READING:

10818853

I typically don’t enjoy romance and definitely do not read erotica, so I have no interest in these books, or movies…

 

THE SAYING GOES “THE BOOK IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN THE MOVIE”, BUT WHAT MOVIE OR TV SHOW ADAPTATION DO YOU PREFER MORE THAN THE BOOK:

17332969.jpg

The 100 TV show is 10 times better than any of the books in the series! More action, better character development, and superb plot!

  1. Definitely agree with the love triangle. Some can work but others not so much.
    I like Nora Roberts romance but haven’t really bought into the fantasy side of her writing. The romance stories with the paranormal twists are nice though.
    And yeah… 50 Shades… no thanks.

      1. O’Dwyer definitely wasn’t one of my favourites. I also felt the end of that one was too abrupt. There was one about a key or keys and an immortal couple cast to live on Earth… if I could remember the name I’d recommend it for you to get to at some point 😄

      1. I do when I am in the mood. If I get tired of fantasy and sci-fi, or if I’m looking for a “feel good” book or a good cry I’ll pick up something. My favorite contemporary I’ve read is The Future She Left Behind. How about you?

  2. So… I should watch The 100 then? Add it to the ever growing list…

    I DON’T LIKE ROWAN AND AELIN EITHER. Ugh. I actually rather enjoyed their friendship and was very pleased to see a platonic boy/girl relationship in a YA book, then she completely ruined it out of nowhere. End of book 3: Yay, we’re friends and I never want to be anything more because I’ve already met my “mate”. Beginning of book 4: SO IN LUST I MIGHT DIE.

  3. This tag is so cool, I love seeing other people disliking things that I dislike too! Hahaha nothing is so bonding quite like disliking the same things! I don’t read much romance either, which is why I’ve never picked up a Nora Roberts romance, I had no idea she also wrote fantasy! I am awfully curious now…

    1. Someone actually tried getting Shark Tank funding for a dating app that compared things people hate and matched them together, haha!

      I would say give one of her fantasy books a try, so you can say you did, but to me they felt like she tried to shove some fantasy in with her romance. They just didn’t work very well.

      1. I tried to like him for so long, and once I read Empire of Storms, I gave up. I really hate saying that because I usually persist in what I want to do; however, Rowan was not witty or humorous when he tried to be nor was he the kindest. The only redeemable quality he could have in the future is if he stands on a mountain top and his hair is blowing in the wind. Then, I might reconsider my choices.

  4. I feel like The Bone Witch is not popular at all. Atleast the endless negative reviews on GR make it seem so. I loved it though. As a hardcore fantasy lover backstory and world building is everything to me. But I agree it’s really slow paced so I can see why it would not appeal to a lot of people

    1. I actually felt like I was the odd ball in not enjoying it. I love a good backstory but I just felt like it had too much backstory. I wanted to know more about the witch aspect and less about the asha aspects. BUT, I am going to read book 2 in hopes that with all the backstory and world building out of the way, that I will get what I’m looking for.

  5. I might do this tag as well one day. It’s really interesting.
    In other news I’m glad I’m not the only one who can’t stand romance/erotica. It’s so trashy – bye bye 50shades books!!
    😊😊

  6. Lovely answers for this tag! 🙂 I haven’t read The Bone Witch, but I have seen some mixed reviews about it all… some people loved it, but the bloggers I trust the most are saying that it was missing a bit in terms of plot, just like you. I think I’ll stay away from that one? ahah.
    I am sooooooo tired of the love triangle as well, you’re not the only one haha 🙂

    1. If you like heavy backstory, you might be okay, but in my opinion, it was too much backstory and not enough plot with regards to the title. I am glad I’m not the only one that didn’t enjoy it, lol. And sometimes those love triangles just need to gtfo, haha.

  7. Ooh, I’ve been looking for a fun tag to do, this could be it 🙂

    I don’t like Rowan and Aelin either. I’d happy with either of the choices from the earlier books, so I don’t understand why she suddenly switched from either of them and ended up with bloody Rowan.
