Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.
Today’s prompt is all about unpopular bookish opinions! I have quite a few and I have mentioned them before on here, I think, as well as my Instagram. There have been books I didn’t like and characters that are big no’s to me. There are tropes or just things I don’t like in books and I will discuss all these opinions today!
1.) The Cruel Prince/Wicked King was a no for me
TCP was a bit better in my opinion than WK and one big reason I didn’t like this series is because of the characters. Cardan is weird, especially in WK. I really don’t get the hype for him because he seems pretty toxic, but to each their own! I also wasn’t a fan of Jude or any of the minor characters. The plot was okay but the books just don’t appeal to me.
2.) Strange the Dreamer was a boring read
I read this book because of all the hype and it just let me down. The writing and descriptive details were nice but the plot seemed to just drag on. I didn’t connect with the characters and so it just wasn’t for me.
3.) I like love triangle
Sure, some can be poorly written but I love when people fight over someone. I love it!
4.) I’m just not a fan of Leigh Bardugo’s writing
I said it! I didn’t like The Grishaverse trilogy. It felt rushed in some ways and other ways felt long. I really didn’t like The Darkling. Although I will say what happened to him was very anti-climatic. Six of Crows was better but its been a long while since reading that and I still haven’t picked up the next book. I think I gave SoC 4 stars but looking back it would be more of a 3. I fell into the hype and didn’t want people to hate me! But, all books won’t be liked by everyone.
5.) I still like Tamlin
I know, I know. Everyone hates him. Sure, he made some bad decisions but people like The Darkling and Cardan so I am allowed this one. I actually didn’t want to finish the series because I googled what happened and wanted to keep my happy thoughts about him, haha. I hope he gets his happy ending.
6.) I didn’t like Throne of Glass especially Aelin
The first book was boring to me and the series didn’t really pick up until book 4. Aelin just felt too powerful and just overall wasn’t a fan of her.
7.) Mangas, audiobooks, and graphic novels count!
I mean, its still a book just a different delivery.
8.) Insta-love is blah
I do not like it and I never will!
9.) Swear words in books make me cringe
I don’t use them so I just prefer them not in books.
10.) Dirty scenes make me laugh
I will never read a romance novel because of this and even the ones in Acotar made me giggle. Most of the time I just skipped over them.
There you have it! Do any of these make your list? Let me know!
