I was fortune to be challenged to complete Unpopular Opinions Book Tag (originally from TheBookArcher) by Lunch Time Librarian because of my Why I'm Sick of Harry Potter post. I am so excited to do this, so please do not wish death upon me. Actually, you're entitled to your own opinion so *shrugs*
I could never get into Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I own the first two books in the series, but I've never read them. I read Cinder a while ago, but have never picked it back up. Cinder seemed to bore me, and I just didn't like it.
There's really not one. All of my books have pretty popular ratings on Goodreads. But if I have to choose one that people rarely talk about, it would be Ember by Jessica Sorensen. It was just an amazing book that I got for free on my Kindle. I love Ember and Asher. They are just fantabulous. I even made my library buy the first two books lol
Obviously, a love triangle that I didn't like was Lena/Alex/Julian in Requiem by Lauren Oliver. I loved this series, but this love triangle really added nothing to the book. I found it pointless, (SPOILER) and then when I was just starting to like Julian and Lena, she gets back with Alex. (END SPOILER) It just made me dislike the ending.
Romance. I rarely read romance. It bores me. I like the more action-y novels because they are exciting or sci-fi because they are awesome. Romance is just not my cup of tea, though I recently started reading contemporary...
I did not like Anna from Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. She almost ruined the novel for me. All of her problems seemed to just fix themselves via magic. And she had never been kissed, yet all of these guys were chasing after her. Oo-kay. That's totally realistic.
E. Lockhart. Everytime I see a book by her and just avoid it. I thought that I wanted to read them, but the blurbs just seem boring to me. People seem to love her books, but I don't know.
I just mentioned this in my RBL post a few weeks ago. I love Dystopian. It's my favorite genre, but I am sick and tired of seeing the same old plot. It's always a group that wants to overthrow the *corrupt* government. Lately, it's been feeling as if I've read the same book over and over again. There is very little deviation from that. I beg of you, please do not let this genre die. Be original with it.
Between Shades of Gray. I've had this on my bookshelf forever without reading it, and finally just gave it away in my #Spookygiveaway. I don't know why I bought it, but I never opened it. It just didn't call to me, so it sat on my shelf for over a year. It seems boring.
I'd have to say even though I'm tired of it, I loved Harry Potter. You just don't get those kind of visuals and characters in the book. I feel as if everyone was their role. Whenever I think of Snape, I picture the raven-haired, snooty Professor in the movies. Or Hagard with his giant, lovable self. The movies sold the imagination perfectly.
Fallen by Lauren Kate irritated me from start to finish because it was so cheesy, but I read every book in the series. I have no idea why I finished it, but I had to.
Now for the tagging of a book blogger. I tag Dominique @ The Book Vault because I love her blog, and I think she would enjoy this.
