Saw this one and just had to do it 🙂 I tag anyone who wants to join!
*and just a friendly reminder. These are MY opinions and are not meant to offend. If you don’t agree, well, feel free to write an unpopular opinion post of your own =D
A popular book or series that you didn’t like
Oh man. We could be here all day. But I’ll only name a few:
A popular book or series that everyone else seems to hate but you love
I love me some Father Bell from Priest and anyone who doesn’t can leave this page right this second 😉
A popular book genre that you hardly reach for
Historical Romance. Not sure why but I have never had the urge to read this genre.
A popular or beloved character that you do not like
Jared Trent (from Bully by Penelope Douglas). There’s lovable asshole, and then there’s shithead. And you Jared, are a shithead.
A popular author that you can’t seem to get into
Tillie Cole and Penny Reid. And before all the pitchforks come out let me explain. I feel like every story in Tillie’s series are SO similar. And her romance is too cheesy for my taste. I used to adore her books, but my tastes have most definitely changed. And to me, both authors’ writing tends to be really repetitive (though I do enjoy the premise of Penny’s books. I just can’t get passed her writing style.)
A popular book trope that you’re tired of seeing
Anything involving a billionaire.
And while we’re at it, I’m also tired of:
*Words/Phrases using any combination of the following:
I own you.
She owns me.
That pussy is mine.
He’s touched my soul.
He is my soul.
*Men who won’t , sorry, “can’t”, do relationships because of a fucked up past. Go see a therapist, would you?
*Half naked men on book covers. I can’t be the only person who doesn’t give a shit about seeing abs anymore.
*Reviews that OMG! and GAH! and squee and squawk or anything else sounding like that.
A popular series that you have no interest in reading
Read the first book. Did not like it. No desire to read the rest.
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?
The Notebook and Fifty Shades. I know I know, how cliché. But I just love me some Ryan Gosling. And don’t even GET ME STARTED on Jamie Dornan.
thanks for reading!
