the unpopular opinions book tag

yay, it’s thursday, which means, time for a tag. well i could do a tag everyday, but that would be kinda boring, right? 😀 but today i am in the mood for it and since the wonderful charlotte annelise tagged me for the unpopular opinions book tag, i thought i give it a go. i wanted to do this tag for a while now and now i can, yay! (well i still could have just done it, but what can ya say, i love being tagged haha 😀 )

 

tags

 

1.) a popular book or book series that you didn’t like

upsideof  alongwaytoasmallangryplanet

ok, hear me out. it’s not that i didn’t like these books. i just didn’t enjoy them as much as other people did. the hype for these books was huge and i hoped, that i would love them as much as others did. but that wasn’t the case. i really liked how diverse “the upside of unrequited” by becky albertalli was. the cast of characters was amazing. my only problem was with molly. i couldn’t connect with her at all. i don’t know why. but she was annoying me and i really had my problems with her. that’s why i couldn’t enjoy this book that much.

as for “a long way to a small angry planet” by becky chambers, i really loved some of the characters. i mean, kizzy is like the best. but the story dragged for me. i had problems with the writing and i couldn’t really get into it. it took me a very long time to finish this book and i thought the ending was forced way too much. it just wasn’t for me and i was so sad, because i was really looking forward to it!

 

2.) a popular book or book series that everyone else seems to hate but you love

after.jpg

it seems as everyone hates the “after” series by anna todd. everywhere i look, people are so mad about it. and i get it. there is some unhealthy stuff in it. and it shouldn’t work, but for some reason it did for me. i read 2,5 books during one week on vacation, because i couldn’t put it down. and these books are huge! i was lost in that world and these characters kept me turning the pages. i flew through these huge books and i really enjoyed them.

 

3.) an otp that you don’t like

ifistay

nope, just nope! i really wasn’t a fan of mia and adam in “if i stay” and “where she went” by gayle forman. they didn’t click. i couldn’t feel it. unfortunately, because otherwise this series would have been much better for me. but i had problems with them and with the books itself. this just wasn’t for me.

 

4.) a popular book genre that you hardly reach for

historical fiction. i don’t know why, because most of the time i enjoy it, when i start a historical fiction. but i hardly reach for it. it’s hard for me, because i have so many other books i want to read before i pick up a historical fiction book. am i afraid i won’t like it? am i afraid it will bore me? i don’t know, don’t ask me 😀

 

5.) a popular/beloved character that you do not like

eleanorpark

eleanor. i didn’t like her. she ruined this book for me. i couldn’t connect with her. she annoyed me and it was just meh. i was soooo looking forward to this book and it didn’t work for me because of eleanor. i think this is the only rainbow rowell book, i wasn’t a big fan of.

 

6.) a popular author that you can’t seem to get into

that’s hard for me to answer, because there are popular authors, i haven’t read yet. i will do a separate post on that one soon. but so far i haven’t read any of their books so i can’t say if i can get into their books or not.

 

7.) a popular book trope that you’re tired of seeing

love triangles. and this goes for everything. movies, tv shows, books. i hate love triangles and the whole “who-is-the-right-one-for-who”? that annoys me so so so much. why can’t just two people be put together and then tell their story. and don’t go back and forth between all characters. ah, that makes me mad. just do it like they did it with nathan and hailey in “one tree hill”. first season, together, after 9 seasons, still together. nothing else. perfect couple. love it! i’ve read a lot of contemporary romances in the last year and i am so happy, that most of them focused on one OTP and not a love triangle. thank you so much for that! 😀

 

8.) a popular series that you have no interest in reading

vampireacademy darktower thelightningthief

i’m pretty sure, i will never read the “vampire academy” series by richelle mead. i am just not interested in it. also, “the dark tower” series by stephen king. there are just waaay too many books. and last but not least, i won’t read any series by rick riordan. i know, they are supposed to be really good. but i am just not interested in them.

 

9.) 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?

brooklyn 13reasons

when it comes to movies, i really enjoyed the adaptation of “brooklyn” by colm tóibín. i liked the book but the movie had the better ending. i mean, it was the same ending, but the movie executed it way better than the book did!

as for tv show adaptations, i have to say “thirteen reasons why” by jay asher. i really liked the netflix series, because it somehow gave me so much more the story. and through visualizing it, i was way more emotionally involved.

 

 

that’s it guys. these were my answers. please let me know, which answers you would pick for the questions! 🙂

and saving for last, i tag:

  1. I completely agree with you about love triangles!! They’re so pointless and I feel like they definitely don’t happen as much in real life as in fiction. I wonder why they even became a popular trope to begin with???

    Great tag! 🙂

    1. i guess because you can go on with the story forever! especially in tv series it makes sense when there is a possibility of more seasons. that’s probably the same with book series. more time to drag out the story and put some drama in it… meh! 😂

  2. I agree with you about historical fiction, I never rarely pick it up either because I’m afraid it would bore me. I also feel the same way about Mia and Adam, their romance wasn’t very convincing.

    Too bad you don’t want to read Vampire Academy, it’s a very fun series.

  3. Great tag!! I haven’t yet read many of the books mentioned but your explanations have a bit of an idea… I’ll have to say I do like historical fiction/historical romance but only if it’s about the ramonov’s or is based in the WW2 time can’t read anything else… which I’m pretty sure many people are going to get angry when I say this but… I just couldn’t get into the outlander series (finished the 1st book in a 1.5 years 😖 and just gave up on the second book – along with the tv series) sorry peeps 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️

  4. Lowkey judging you for reading “After”. 😉 Haha nein Spaß beiseite, manchmal muss trash eben auch sein. Ich bin einfach generell kein Fan von diesen ganzen Fanfictions, die dann wirklich verlegt und verkauft werden… nah, share dat shit for free on the internet und gut is’. 😉

    Ich find’s sehr interessant, dass du die “Dark Tower”-Reihe von Stephen King erwähnst. Er ist nämlich auch einer der Autoren, an dem ich so gar nicht interessiert bin, da Horror einfach nicht meins ist… Aber wenn ich was von dem guten man lesen würde, dann wohl “Gunslinger”. 😀

    1. haha, ja dafür darfste ich gerne judgen 😀 aber is mir egal. das kam zur richtigen zeit und war einfach trash genug, dass ichs verschlungen hab haha 😀

      ich hab schon ein paar kings gelesen und da ich eh ein schisser bin, waren die meistens nichts für mich. wobei zB “the long walk” mega geil und absurd war, aber das war auch psychological. bzgl. “dark tower” – ich hab nicht mal eine ahnung, worum es geht, aber allein die buchanzahl der serie schreckt mich schon so sehr ab, dass ich da gar keine weiteren infos möchte hahaha *facepalm*
