Unpopular Opinions Book Tag

Unpopular Opinions Book Tag

It feels like I haven’t done a book tag in a while. I’ve seen this floating around the internet for years, and I finally sat down and did it. It’s a super simple and fun tag and I had a lot of fun doing it.

The Unpopular Opinions Book Tag was originally created by the BookTuber, TheBookArcher, so you can go watch that video if you want to. Cue the questions!

Let’s do this!

The Throne of Glass series by Sarah Maas. I got halfway through the series and I just could not keep going. I thought the first two books were okay. Then it took me like 3 months to read book 3, and then finally called it quits halfway through book 4.
The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. I don’t care what anyone says, but this is still one of my favorite series. I reread it every few years waiting to see if one day I’ll hate it, but so far it hasn’t happened. I’m not blind to this series’ faults, but I just don’t care.

The Summer series by Jenny Han. This is probably one of the most frustrating love triangles I’ve ever read, which is saying a lot. But we all know she should have ended up with Jeremiah, or alone, because Conrad was literally the worst. But honestly, the entire third book was messy.
Probably non-fiction. I know this isn’t even a genre, but it’s the only type of book I will not read.
Clary and Jace from the Mortal Instruments whomp. They’re both so annoying, I guess that’s why they’re perfect for each other. And it’s not like I hate this series, I kind of like it actually. But this is the perfect example of where the side characters steal the show.

Mackenzie Lee. And honestly, the more time that passes the less I want to read her books.

The chosen one trope. Talk about unoriginal. There are a lot of tropes I’m tired of seeing, but I can’t think of any book with this trope that I enjoyed.

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I don’t know why, but nothing about this series calls to me. I’ve seen good reviews, I’ve seen bad, but ultimately I have no interest in these.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Don’t get me wrong, I liked the book. But when I watch the movie, I just feel so much better. Not really sure why, but I think this was perfectly casted.

I tag anyone who wants to do this. Have fun!

Her Name in the Sky by Kelly Quindlen

Hannah wants to spend her senior year of high school going to football games and Mardi Gras parties with her tight-knit group of friends.

The last thing she wants is to fall in love with a girl–especially when that girl is her best friend, Baker.

Hannah knows she should like Wally, the kind, earnest boy who asks her to prom. She should cheer on her friend Clay when he asks Baker to be his girlfriend. She should follow the rules of her conservative Louisiana community–the rules that have been ingrained in her since she was a child.

But Hannah longs to be with Baker, who cooks macaroni and cheese with Hannah late at night, who believes in the magic of books as much as Hannah does, and who challenges Hannah to be the best version of herself.

And Baker might want to be with Hannah, too–if both girls can embrace that world-shaking, yet wondrous, possibility.

Whatever Life Throws at You by Julie Cross

Life loves a good curveball…

Seventeen-year-old Annie Lucas’s life is completely upended the moment her dad returns to the major leagues as the new pitching coach for the Kansas City Royals. Now she’s living in Missouri (too cold), attending an all-girls school (no boys), and navigating the strange world of professional sports. But Annie has dreams of her own—most of which involve placing first at every track meet…and one starring the Royals’ super-hot rookie pitcher.

But nineteen-year-old Jason Brody is completely, utterly, and totally off-limits. Besides, her dad would kill them both several times over. Not to mention Brody has something of a past, and his fan club is filled with C-cupped models, not smart-mouthed high school “brats” who can run the pants off every player on the team. Annie has enough on her plate without taking their friendship to the next level. The last thing she should be doing is falling in love.

But baseball isn’t just a game. It’s life. And sometimes, it can break your heart…

The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones

Seventeen-year-old Aderyn (“Ryn”) only cares about two things: her family, and her family’s graveyard. And right now, both are in dire straits. Since the death of their parents, Ryn and her siblings have been scraping together a meager existence as gravediggers in the remote village of Colbren, which sits at the foot of a harsh and deadly mountain range that was once home to the fae. The problem with being a gravedigger in Colbren, though, is that the dead don’t always stay dead.

The risen corpses are known as “bone houses,” and legend says that they’re the result of a decades-old curse. When Ellis, an apprentice mapmaker with a mysterious past, arrives in town, the bone houses attack with new ferocity. What is it that draws them near? And more importantly, how can they be stopped for good?

Together, Ellis and Ryn embark on a journey that will take them deep into the heart of the mountains, where they will have to face both the curse and the long-hidden truths about themselves.

Wherever You Are (Bad Reputation Duet #2) by Krista Ritchie, Becca Ritchie


You know that old saying “opposites attract” — well, no one ever tells you what happens after the attraction part.

Do opposites stick together forever?

Or do they just self-combust?

And then there’s the third option: someone or something forces them apart.

Look, the third option isn’t happening to us. I will end the bastard who thinks he can keep me from her. I only need to worry about one thing. . .

Epic, soul-crushing self-destruction.

Because I screw up everything I touch.

Even her.
