The Unpopular Opinions Book Tag

I saw the Unpopular Opinion Tag on YouTube and thought it seemed like fun. It was created by The Book Archer and you can view it here. So let's get started

1. A Popular Book or series that you didn't like- Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews

Me and Earl and the Dying GirlAlthough I did enjoy this book, it didn't live up to the hype that surrounded it. Everyone said that this was the best book they had ever read and I just didn't feel like this. It just wasn't the best book ever and I think I will prefer the film more than the movie as it has an indie feel which I know I will like. 






2. A Popular Book or series that every one else seems to hate but you love-Matched by Ally Condie and The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater


Matched (Matched, #1)I really enjoy the Matched series and everyone seems to hate Crossed which I seemed to love however if I read it now I don't know how far I would agree...










Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1)The Wolves of Mercy Falls series was one of the first YA series that I read so it holds a special place in my heart and I really enjoy this series and everyone seems to champion the Raven Boys which is a series I enjoyed but again didn't live up to the hype.








3. A Love Triangle where the main character ended up with the person you did NOT want them to end up with OR an OTP that you don't like- Wessa or Jessa


Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, #3)I preferred Jem to Will so I wanted Jem to be with Tessa but I guess that both get want they wanted...










4. A popular book genre that you hardly reach for-Classics

Pride and PrejudiceI just don't like reading classics but I am trying to read more this year and hope to get into Jane Austen this year.











5. A popular or beloved character that you do not like-Gale Hawthorne by The Hunger Games 


The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)I don't know if he is really beloved but I am sure people like him however I find him whinny and just an irrelevant character. 









6. A popular author that you can't seem to get into- J.R.R Tolkien 


The Hobbit (Middle-Earth Universe)I read the Hobbit last year and it was just not my favourite book. It took me ages to read and I just didn't really like it. I also read 100 pages of The Fellowship of the Ring and didn't like it however I do want to read it so I am going to try a reread next month.
 








7. A popular book trope that you're tired of seeing. 

Delirium (Delirium, #1)I am tired of the gorgeous girl who finds herself unattractive but a boy finds her really attractive trope. I think that it is bad about girl's self confidence as it makes the reader who are mainly girls feel bad about themselves when no girl all the time has hate for their body. I don't like how it is done in Delirium as Lena herself has two guys after her but still thinks she is unattractive.






8. A popular series that you have no interest in reading- 50 Shades of Grey by E.L James

Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1)I really don't want to read the book. It is erotica and that's just not something that I really want to read ever. Just NO.












9. The saying goes "The book is always better than the movie", but what movie or T.V. show adaptation do you prefer more than the book?

The DUFF as I thought the film was done well in the fact that they used social media and it was a well done high school film, this is also one of those where the book just didn't live up to the hype. 



The Spectacular Now, I didn't like the ending to the book and they changed the ending which made it really good. It also had an indie feel which I liked.


Do you have any unpopular book opinions? If so, leave them in the comments below. 

See you soon,

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…
