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. 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 everyone 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. 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 his 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 for a girl's self-confidence. It makes the reader who is 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,

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti

Female Representation in Harry Potter: A Transcription

Considering this keeps gaining attention, I just wanted to clarify that I no longer support J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter series. I'm not sure why people are clicking on this but, the views in this post do not reflect my current views and I only posted it on my blog so that it could be shared as not many people came to the event when it first happened.  So later today, in 2 hours I am going to be doing a presentation on Female Representation in Harry Potter for my university's Harry Potter Society and I thought some of you may be interested in what I had to say. I also respect that people may disagree with my views on the subject and understand that this is not the only opinion you can have. So here it is... Hello, everyone. Thank you for coming! Today I am going to discuss female representation in Harry Potter books and films. The aims of this presentation would be to introduce you to the fact that female representation in Harry Potter may not be what it seems. So you
