So, we all know that voicing an opinion that someone might not agree with is slightly dangerous, right? In Cait’s (quite spectacular) words, it can be as dangerous as poking a dragon with a spork. This tag doesn’t have any rules or anything, so I’M FREE TO DO WHAT A PLEASE.
1. A POPULAR BOOK OR SERIES THAT YOU DON’T LIKE
I tend to like most popular books ’cause they got popular for a reason, y’know? But I’d have to say Matched by Allie Condie. The book was boring and choppy and I couldn’t make it through the series. It bored me to death and I started “forgetting” it when we went somewhere.
2. A POPULAR BOOK/SERIES EVERYONE HATES BUT YOU LOVE
The Talon series by Julie Kagawa. I have no idea why so many people don’t like it. Maybe because it feels a bit tamer than her other books or something, but I still really like them.
3. A LOVE TRIANGLE WHERE THE PROTAGONIST ENDED UP WITH THE PERSON YOU DIDN’T WANT THEM TO BE WITH.
I actually can’t think of something where that happened.
4. A POPULAR GENRE THAT YOU HARDLY READ.
Romance. I never read it, and avoid it like poison. I think the one and only romance I’ve read willingly was Eleanor & Park and that’s because it’s Rainbow Rowell and Fangirl was amazing.
5. A POPULAR CHARACTER THAT YOU HATE/DISLIKE.
Gale from The Hunger Games. Something about him just rubs me the wrong way. I don’t know what it is, exactly, but I disliked him from the first book.
6. A POPULAR AUTHOR YOU CAN’T SEEM TO GET INTO.
Allie Condie again, or possibly C. S. Lewis. For whatever reason I didn’t really like the Narnia series when I was a kid. I was weird, considering all of my other friends loved them.
7. A POPULAR TROPE YOU’RE TIRED OF READING.
LOVE TRIANGLES. Seriously, enough of these.
Also, absent parents. Most parents don’t only show up to give you food and/or ground you if you climb through the window at two AM.
8. A POPULAR SERIES YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN READING
Not exactly a series, but I have no interest in reading any books that have any life-threatening illness. I just don’t. I won’t willingly sign on for tragedy, peoples.
9. A SHOW/MOVIE YOU LIKED BETTER THAN THE BOOK.
The 100 t.v. show was infinitely better than the book by Cass Morgan. Also, I liked The Maze Runner movie than I did the book. The book was good, but I felt it had a few unnessicary scenes/details. A there was little to no character development.
10. A POPULAR STYLE OF COVER YOU CAN’T STAND.
Covers that are so muddled and jam packed with stuff it looks cluttered. Think the first Harry Potter cover. Now, I love the book, but the cover is too full. I don’t get why people feel the need to shove as much stuff on a cover as possible.
