The Unpopular Opinion Book Tag

Hey, Nerdy Peeps! I am bringing you another book tag! I have seen a few posts and YouTube videos on the unpopular opinion book tag and cannot wait to share my answers with you. Please remember these are just my opinions and we might not share the same ones!

A Popular book/series you didn’t like

Don’t hate me, but this one was pretty easy for because mine happens to be Harry Potter. I could not get into this series no matter how hard I tried. This series (including the movies) just didn’t happen for me. The characters weren’t my kind of characters and I just didn’t like the storylines.

A book series everyone hates but you love

I don’t know if people hate this series, but I never really hear anything about it. On the other hand, this series happens to be one of my faves. The Trylle series is one of my all time favorites and I have read it multiple times.  The books are beautiful and the storyline just sucks you in.

A love triangle where the main character ends up with the person you didn’t want them to end up with

This one would be Katniss and Peeta. I don’t know why, but I just wanted them to be friends. I can see why they ended up together but doesn’t mean I have to like it. If I had to choose, I would have loved to see Katniss with Gale, and Peeta as the uncle!

A popular book genre you rarely reach for

Thriller/Suspense, this is not my favorite and I hardly ever pick it up. Now, if you add in some good romance I may be interested. But if it’s just suspenseful then I probably will turn away.

A popular beloved character you can’t seem to get into

America Singer in The Selection. I couldn’t stand her (or the series). Like really, who doesn’t want to have a crown and be a Princess. I mean yeah I know she was in love with someone else, but still.

A Popular Author you can’t seem to get into

Once again, don’t hate me, but I cannot get into Cassandra Clare. I read the first book in the Mortal Instrument Series, and although it took some time I did enjoy it. Now, for the second book, it took me forever to finish it and it made me realize I am just not a fan of Clare’s books.

A Popular trope you are tired of seeing

The guy always saving the girl. Why does the guy always have to be the hero? I mean a woman can easily be as heroic as a man. So, bring me some books with female heroes!

A popular series you have no interest in reading

The Vampire Academy. This one is a big nope for me. I just can’t do it, there are too many books out there about Vampires and I they are pretty much worn out. I’ve read my fill so these won’t be on my TBR list.

    I’ll have to agree with everything except the Selection series ( I am a fan). But I’m so on board with everything else.

      I don’t know I may try it again, so we will see

    I agree with you on Cassandra Clare.

    1. NerdyBookLife October 17, 2017 at 10:40 am

      Right! I’m sure she’s a great person, but I just can’t get into her books

    Oh my, you really do go out on a limb alone… 😉

    1. NerdyBookLife October 17, 2017 at 11:12 am

      Yes, I do!

    You and I have such similar book tastes! I also don’t want to read Vampire academy, I don’t particularly like Harry Potter, and I don’t have interest in Cassandra’s novels. Glad to meet I’m not alone! 😂❤️

    1. NerdyBookLife October 17, 2017 at 12:52 pm

      Yay! I’m always afraid I’m alone in this Nerdy world!

  5. Mandi Wasmer October 17, 2017 at 1:43 pm

    The Tryelle series is on my TBR! I’ll have to get to it soon since you have such high praise for it!

    1. NerdyBookLife October 17, 2017 at 1:45 pm

      I love it!

    I love the Harry Potter books and Cassandra Clare’s work – although I don’t feel her newer stuff is as good as her earlier work. I’ve never read most of the others though.

    1. NerdyBookLife October 18, 2017 at 6:50 am

      I just can’t do it, they were do hard to get through for me

  7. Jessica October 18, 2017 at 7:54 am

    I’m with you on the Harry Potter series. I tried to read them, but they just didn’t do much for me. I liked the movies better, but I never really did watch those much either. I’m also not much of a Thriller/Suspense person either. But I think this is so cool! I may do something like this on my blog too 🙂

    1. NerdyBookLife October 18, 2017 at 8:02 am

      I had a lot of fun! I never could get into the Harry Potter movies either!

  8. Kaite October 18, 2017 at 8:38 am

    Oh this was interesting!
    I’m trying to get into Cassandra Clare again, more because of the things she wrote about than her writing. I’ve heard that the Mortal instruments is the worst of her books, so I’m trying to get through them so I can read the infernal devices and see if I like them better.
    Thanks for the opinions!!

    1. NerdyBookLife October 18, 2017 at 8:54 am

      Anytime! I hope you can get through her books!
