So Bianca finally decided to catch up on doing tags? Why do I always choose the most controversial tags? This is so me.
I was tagged by Raven at Dreamy Addictions way back last year. I am so sorry that I have not done this tag sooner, but thank you so much for tagging me, Raven. ❤
Anyways, this tag speaks for itself. Note that this may be a controversial tag, and I hope that this does not strain our friendship, blogger friends. This is just my honest opinion, though I will try to be as discreet as possible and would try to use the word hate less often.
Onto the tag!
1.A popular book or series that you didn’t like
Apparently, this question will finally put the cat out of the bag. The series in question is the Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi. I did not like anything in this book except for Tahereh Mafi’s writing style, which was alluring and vibrant. But the plot, the characters, and the dystopian aspect? Nope. Nope. Nope.
2. A popular book that everyone hates but you love
I personally had a good time reading The Selection by Kiera Cass. It was somewhat a refreshing read even though my friends gave me a blurb like “Hunger Games – the killings + The Bachelor”. The rest of the series is on a different aspect though.
3. A love triangle where your ship did not sail
Due to the alarming amounts of spoilers I see on Twitter and blogs that do not even filter their reviews, I know that my ship in the Throne of Glass series did not sail. But despite the fact that it did not sail, I will someday muster the courage to read the series in its entirety. (P.S. This is why I avoided Twitter when ACOMAF was released. :D)
4. A popular genre that you hardly reach for.
High fantasy and paranormal. I really have no idea why, but the fantasy genre is not my cuppa. It’s a hit or miss for me, which is why I avoid it. (Plus, not enough male leads. Always brooding.) For example, here are some of the books that I have not read yet.
5. A beloved character you didn’t like
Tris Prior from the Divergent trilogy. Hear me out. Tris is a level-headed human being, but in some ways, being a post-apocalyptic hero is not the way to go. Also, choosing the faction that ultimately give you pain is not the best way to go.
On the positive note, my mother loved Divergent. I guess she will buy the series now.
6. A popular author you can’t get into
Oh dear. There are tons. Yet on the top of my head, there’s Jennifer Armentrout. Her books just do not appeal to me, and I do not plan on reading her books soon.
7. A popular book series you have no interest in reading
The answer to this one would have to be The Maze Runner series by James Dashner. I was spoiled (thanks to Pinterest). Not unless someone gives me the whole series, I will never pick it up. Especially if I have to go through the pain that is characters dying.
8. An adaptation you like better than the book
I will always answer the adaptation of The Fault in our Stars. I also have solid reasons because:
1) I read the book after the trailer came out,
2) I cried harder during the movie
3) Ansel Elgort may not be the perfect Augustus Waters, but he is in my book.
And that’s about it for the unpopular opinions tag 🙂 I’m sorry if I hit some hearts. I did not mean to. ❤
Now, I tag you lovely people! If you have done the tag, feel free to ignore. Or if you want to do it again… YAY!
Morgan at Happily Ever Bookish

and anyone else who would want to do the tag. 🙂
