Unpopular Opinion Book Tag

Hello readers! The Unpopular Opinion Book Tag was created by The Book Archer. I was not tagged by anybody but I saw the tag on Novels and Necklaces’s blog and thought I’d give it a shot!

Popular book or series that you didn’t like

If you follow my Instagram then you might’ve heard me talk about this one before but I’m just not a fan of The 5th Wave. The book had such promise and I was so hyped to read it but it fell flat by page 50 with its confusing writing style and (honestly) just flat out depressing plot.

Popular book or series that everyone else seems to hate but you love

This is kind of a cheat since not everyone hated Fractured but it does seem to be the least favorite of the Slated trilogy, meaning the fact that it’s my favorite puts me in a small minority. I felt that the plot was a different twist from Slated while still building on the plot and character that we met in the first book.

Love triangle where the main character ended up with the person you did not want them to end up with

I have trouble thinking of an example of where this has happened since I am normally neutral on love triangles or I don’t want the main character to end up with either option. I hated the love triangle so much in Shatter Me that I just prefer that she be alone! (But I won’t go on about that because I’ve harped on enough about that in past posts before…)

Popular book genre that you hardly reach for

The easy answer is nonfiction, but I also rarely read historical fiction.

A popular or beloved character that you do not like

This one for me is easy— the Darkling from Shadow and Bone. This is a character that I just don’t understand why people like. He is a manipulative, twisted little butt face and I just don’t get it! People even ship him and the main character… WHY!?

Show adaptation that you liked better than the book

I think most fans of the show that have read the book would agree that the show far outshines the books. I have talked about this in past posts— about the potential of the books and if you should watch the show or read the books so you can look up that if you’re interested!

I’m tagging… ANYONE! 


  1. YAY I'm so happy you did this tag!! I'm really surprised to see the amount of people saying they didn't enjoy The 5th Wave. I really loved The 5th Wave, but The Infinite Sea disappointed me. Also, I love The Darkling! For some reason he just got to me especially in the later books once we learned more of his history. This was such a fun tag! :)

    1. I was surprised that I didn't like The 5th Wave! I really wanted to like it! But I did end up finishing it and I felt the same about The Infinite Sea. I didn't like what Rick Yancey did with Ringer (the only character that I really liked). And maybe I'll understand the feelings on The Darkling when I read Ruin and Rising because I still need to finish that book. Yeah I really enjoyed the tag!
