Thank you Analee for tagging me! It’s taken me a while, but better late than never right? Don’t forget to check out her blog!
A popular book or series that you didn’t like
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
I really, really wanted to like this book, but nope. You can read my review here. I even changed my rating to two stars recently when I realised the 3-star rating was mostly because I didn’t want to give Sarah J. Maas a 2-star rating, but I realised that was ridiculous.
A popular book that everyone hates but you love
Like Analee I’ll go with The Selection series. I feel like people either love or hate this series, but I personally really enjoyed it. America may be annoying, but Maxon makes up for it.
A love triangle where your ship did not sail
The love triangle in the Wings series. I don’t even remember their names (lol), nor have I even read the last book (lost interest) but I found out the protagonist ends up with the guy I didn’t want her to end up with. Which made me lose even more interest. I really hated his guts. Though maybe I’d feel different if I reread the series (which I’m not planning on doing). I don’t even really care about the ships in this series anymore. I just feel very indifferent towards it.
A popular genre that you hardly reach for
Romance when it comes to adult books, but then again I barely read any adult books anyway #YA4Life
A beloved character you didn’t like
It’s time for the hiding hedgehog again: Tamlin
Everyone seems to love him and swoon over him but I find him really boring?
A popular author you can’t get into
I honestly can’t think of one!
A popular books series you have no interest in reading
The Hunger Games. Before you get out your pitchforks: hear me out! I was interested in reading it years ago, but got spoiled on Tumblr for pretty much the entire trilogy multiple times. I already know so much about what’s going to happen, I just lost interest. Maybe one day when I’m old and have forgotten those spoilers, I’ll read them.
An adaptation you like better than the book
Since I can’t think of a book-to-movie adaptation, I’m going with a manga-to-anime one! Namely Card Captor Sakura. While I enjoyed the manga, I definitely prefer the anime. The manga is really short, though I would’ve liked the anime to be longer as well haha, I feel like I got to know the characters better in the anime. Plus more of this
- Joan from Fiddler Blue
- Marie from Drizzle and Hurricane
- Annemieke from A Dance With Books
- Cristina from My Tiny Obsessions
- Cátia from The Girl Who Read Too Much
