Unpopular opinion booktag

I couldn’t find the creator of the tag.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a booktag. And you guys know I have a lot of unpopular opinions . So lets start!!!

*Spoilers for Percy jackson and heroes of olympus*

A popular book or series that you didn’t like?

I don’t exactly not like this series. But I’m certainly intimidated by these books .

A popular book or series that everyone seems to hate but you love?

It’s not a popular book yet. White stag had a lot of negative opinions but I really loved it. The supposedly love interest bothered many people.. but i really decided to forgive that and honestly , the book was fast paced and interesting . So meh

A love triangle where your ship didn’t sail? (Spoilers here)

I shipped Leo and Hazel (goes into hiding) from Heroes of Olympus series. But its not exactly a spoiler since everyone is shipped with everyone is percy jackson

A popular book genre that you hardly reach for?

Romance and contemporary.

A popular or beloved character that you do not like? (Spoilers here)

I didn’t like Annabeth(from Percy jackson) at all until house of hades book. I always felt like she was toying with my boy.

A popular author that you can’t seem to get into?

Roshani chokshi. Her writing style is sorta new and weird for me. I’ve tried almost all of her books but I can’t work with her writing style YET.

A popular book trope that your tired of seeing ?

I have a lot of tropes I don’t likeas a matter of fact . The one i would like to mention here is “mean girls trope”. Yes , some girls can be jerks but they’re not like hollow. They can be complex and have layers.

This trope has been subverted only in Teen wolf I think. I don’t know much about it in books but I really wanna see more of it.

A common series that you have no interest in reading?

I don’t have any interest in to all the boys I’ve loved before series.

I can say this to throne of Glass too. But I’ve already said it.

An adaption you liked better than the book?

I hate to say this but i liked perks of being a wallflower movie better. The book was so intense and sometimes creepy .

  • This book is basically a narration by a boy who’s struggling with mental health issues and high school pressure.
  • But it gets intense when he basically says everything in his mind.
  • It sounds more like a draft than a book.
  • The movie on the other hand didn’t had any of these problem (mostly).

And seriously Emma watson was there❤

Do you guys have any of these unpopular opinions???

  1. Ohh, I want to say that the mean girls trope has been subverted quite well, but for the life of me, I can’t remember in what. I think I might be thinking more about antiheroines than mean girls, though. 😂

  2. I really do love the perks of being a wallflower, and I think even though both of them are so different, they’re equally good, if that does make any sense. The movie is one of my favourite movies ever but I think the boom really shows what’s like to have an illness, and how it feels to be constantly with fear and being abandoned by all those you loved. Charlie is a symbol to all those misfits who struggle.

    1. I totally agree. But it was sort of creepy for me to be inside his head. It’s just my opinion and I totally agree with you maria. I did like the book but loved the movie😊. Thanks for letting me know ❤❤❤

  3. Great post! I shipped Hazel with Leo too in the start but somehow I just converted and started shipping her with Frank, especially once Calypso came into the picture.

  4. I didn’t like Throne of Glass either! (though ACOTAR isn’t half bad.) and yes, Perks of Being a Wallflower is a much better movie than book ⚔ I’ve seen quite a few books where the cliched “mean girl” gets actual backstory and character development (Sawkill Girls comes to mind, but I can’t seem to remember more right now 😅), but there are definitely still lots that don’t bother – honestly though, I’m not quite sure if that’s because I read mostly backlist or if it’s a continuing trend.

  5. Roshani chokshi is one author I want to get to ASAP this year. I mean everyone keeps talking about her. Also I stand by your choice of perks of being a wallpaper!
