The Unpopular Opinions Book Tag

Hey, everyone!

It seems to be a weekly thing for me to forget to write a blog post up until the very last minute. I've really got to get into the habit of scheduling posts in advanced. I do that with my other blog, but can't seem to do that here. Oh well. Tag to the rescue, again!

The Unpopular Opinions Tag

1. A Popular Book or Series You Didn't Like

Only read maybe 100 pages of this, but it was just so bad!

2. A Popular Book or Series That Everyone Seems to Hate But You Love

I liked this whole series! It has the typical YA paranormal romance issues, and some aspects are stupidly over the top, but it's an addictive series and a total guilty pleasure. 

3. A Love Triangle Where The Character Ended Up With The Person You Didn't Like/OTP You Didn't Care For

I was Team Gale in the extreme, and remember nearly tossing my book at the wall when she picked Peeta. He was so wrong for her! I'll confess to diving into Katniss/Gale fan fiction as soon as I finished. #truestory

4. A Popular Book Genre You Hardly Reach For

Fantasy (especially high fantasy) is not my thing. I'm not patient enough for the world building, and to be perfectly honest I think the genre lets a lot of authors have a sub-par world with no consistency to it "because magic". Not all, but a lot.
Urban Fantasy I enjoy with some plodding; usually after the first book or two I'm completely sucked in. 

5. A Popular Character You Didn't Like

I really disliked Ridge.

Love triangles infuriate me, and it's even worse when it's a guy torn between two girls. I am way too possessive for that. The way Ridge flat out said he'd drop Sydney if his ex wanted him back made me fantasize about throttling him. 

6. A Popular Author You Can't Seem To Get Into

I like this author well enough, but I'm never wowed. They're good for a junk food read, though!

7. A Popular Book Trope You're Tired of Seeing

The Manwhore and The Virgin/Sexually Repressed Girl
The Billionaire Dominant. I love a smutty BDSM read as much as the next person, but come on. 

8. A Popular Book or Series You Have No Interest in Reading

Not my thing, at all. Sy-fy is hit or miss for me anyway, and I need romance in my books, dammit!

9. A Movie You Liked Better Than The Book

Um...I don't really watch movies. I did like the Harry Potter movies better than the books, though that wouldn't have taken much! :p

- The Bibliophile Babe


  1. I feel the same way about most of the books in here. JLA, most specifically. Also, Fantasy is not my thing either.

  2. I don't want to read The Martian either, but outer space freaks me out so that's a big reason why. haha

    My sister tried to read Cassie Clare but she just felt they were too young for her. she read the first one I think.


  3. I loved The Martian so has so much humor it. Maybe the movie will rock your boat.

  4. City of Bones has been on my TBR for awhile now, still haven't read it. Maybe I'll just pass then lol
