I saw this book tag on Paper & Trees Book Blog and knew I had to do it.
In this tag I will talk about some popular things that I don’t like in my reading material, and we will see just how different my opinion is from the masses! No spoilers either!
1. A popular book or series you didn’t like.
I was not a big fan of Heartless. I liked the backstory of what was happening throughout wonderland, but I had a really hard time connecting to Cath and for me the chemistry behind the love story wasn’t there for her and Jest at all.
2. A popular book or series that everyone hates but you love.
Twilight! I read them as a guilty pleasure and enjoyed watching the movies too. Sure the writing sucked a little but I enjoyed the storyline immensely. I know not everyone hates them, but there are lots that will poke fun.
3. A love triangle where the MC ends up with the person you didn’t want them to end up with.
Sookie Stackhouse didn’t end up with the right guy. I’m happy that she’s happy, but I was sure hoping it was going to be someone else.
4. A popular book genre you rarely reach for.
Horror. I like the psychological thriller part, and I do read some Stephen King, but I don’t like having my pants scared off me!
5. A popular beloved character you didn’t like.
I remember while reading The Hunger Games that Katniss bugged me so much. It’s kind of hard to remember now, because everyone loves JLaw so much (including me), but I know the books have her dealing with a lot more self-doubt and teen angst, and it bugged me a lot.
6. A popular author you can’t seem to get into.
Kathy Reichs. I really want to read her books, and I absolutely ADORE bones, but Ive tried many times to read her work and sadly it just doesn’t do it for me.
7. Popular trope you’re tired of seeing.
Ugh. I hate it when the chick always ends up pregnant at the end of a romance novel. So dang predictable.
8. Popular series you have no interest in reading.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoos. I’ve read the backs. I’ve read the reviews. I’ve listened to people talk about them. I am pretty sure that I will never have the urge to read these books.
9. The saying goes, “The book is always better than the movie,” but what movie do you prefer more than the book?
What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. It’s almost as if this time it is in reverse, where I am so dead set on what happens in the movie, that I can’t look past in and read the book. It’s pretty close to the movie, but the difference that were there bothered me for some reason. The same exact reason goes for Fried Green Tomatoes.
