Unpopular Opinions Tag (but they are probably popular somewhere right??)

Posted June 18, 2015 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Tags / 36 Comments

I was tagged by the lovely ladies @ Novel Ink.  Credit for tag creation goes to TheBookArcher.

I am not sure if these are all ACTUALLY unpopular or they just feel like it to me. Also, while doing this I  found out I am a damn sheep because I agree with everyone. I so thought I was better than that. Either way let the unpopularness begin!

A Popular Book or Series That You Didn’t Like


Chaos Walking by Patrick Ness: OK I thought the first book was pretty good. Started this one and OMG I was bored to tears. I DNFed it.

Popular Book or Series that Everyone Hates But You Love

The One & Only by Emily Giffin: I feel like this one got hit hard in reviews. No one really liked it (I think it is at a 3 or something on Goodreads). It definitely was a little different and the subject was a little weird I guess but I still loved it!

Love Triangle Where the MC Ended Up with the Person You Didn’t Want them to End Up With 

When it Rains by Lisa De Jong: Well this is probably cheating (and you would only understand if you have read it) but it didn’t end how I would have liked it to.

Popular Book Genre You Hardly Reach For

True fantasy/sci-fi/paranormal with little to no romance. I think this one is definitely not you its me thing. I have a hard time following if there is so much going on and then I can’t enjoy it. I do however like Fantasy Lite with some romance

A Popular or Beloved Character that You Didn’t Like


Mia from If I Stay by Gayle Forman: I liked this book just fine. Mia kind of got on my nerves. It was like decide already.

A Popular Author that You Can’t Seem to Get Into


John Sanford. So not probably popular around these parts. But I have had a couple of IRL people recommend the Prey series. I tried. I made it through the first book with copious amounts of skimming. I wound up DNFing the second.

A Popular Book Trope that You’re Tired of Seeing

Ridiculously insecure girl who is actually super beautiful, smart and talented despite everyone telling her the entire story. This happens so much in NA. I roll my eyes the whole time.


A Popular Series that You Have No Interest in Reading


Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: I am sure it is wonderful but eh not for me.

Show/Movie Adaption that You Liked Better Than the Book


Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger: It is all about the ending here folks. I liked the book plenty. But that ending didn’t do it for me. I was much happier with the movie’s take on it.

I feel like so many people were tagged already so do this one if you want I would love to see your answers!!

      I know with Throne of Glass! Glad you are with me on the ending to Time Traveler’s Wife!

  1. Oh my gosh THIS: ‘Ridiculously insecure girl who is actually super beautiful, smart and talented despite everyone telling her the entire story. This happens so much in NA. I roll my eyes the whole time.’

    I hate when that happens. Or another one, daughter with lots of siblings feels like her dad doesn’t care about her yet all the siblings know that she’s the favorite. HAPPENS ALL THE TIME.

    I really love Throne of Glass but I totally understand that it might not be your cup of tea!

      Ah the siblings one is good too!! I guess it should just be super oblivious characters!

  2. YES to The Time Traveler’s Wife! I actually DNF’d the book but I LOVED the movie so much! I’m right there with you about the insecure girl who is actually the most drop dead gorgeous girl ever and of course she gets the really hot guy who doesn’t settle for one girl…but oh wait, he does for her…..*rolls eyes*

      Turns out my Time Traveler’s Wife might be popular!! Of course SHE can tame him – I seriously can’t take that in books!

  3. I get what you mean about If I Stay. Mia took SO LONG to decide. I know it is a big decision, but waiting around and letting your family (what’s left of it, at least) suffer is not an admirable character trait.

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      Ah I haven’t seen the movie yet because I heard eh things but maybe I will check that out!

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      I still really liked the Time Traveler’s Wife as a book though!! I swear lol. And I am sure ToG is awesome I am just not super into that genre so I am so hesitant.

  4. Great tag! You broke my heart with Throne of Glass. It is one of favorite series! I can see how you felt about Mia. I just wanted her to just choose too. I would definitely watch the movie! It is actually pretty good. I might have to do this tag! It sounds like a lot of fun!!

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      I knew the Thone of Glass one was going to get me in trouble! I will definitely watch the movie now. And yes do the tag I love to see these answers!

  5. Oh my gosh, the trope one. URGH. It happens all the time in NA which is why I don’t really read NA anymore. Something else that occurs in NA all the time is the damaged guy thing. Yes, I understand that everyone has issues but having a male lead whose always broken beyond repair [and is somehow a turn on?] is getting redundant.

    I love this tag – it’s basically saying that we’re allowed to express our opinion, even if we’re the unpopular one!

      I also feel like I don’t read as much NA because of both of those. This tag was a lot of fun to do!

  6. I am just going to pretend that I did not see the DNFing of a Chaos Walking book… just going to meander right past that one 😉 Throne of Glass… I used to agree with you! I wasn’t ever planning on reading it and then BOOM, peer pressure. I love it, incidentally. I didn’t mind Mia from If I Stay, but I wasn’t a fan of Adam. Especially movie Adam, which kind of taints book Adam to me. I haaate that trope too! I agree, HUGE in NA, and that is why NA and I do not usually get along 😉 I do love this tag!

      I really wonder with Chaos Walking if I just wasn’t in the mood or right headspace since I liked the first (although I did find it slow too). Peer pressure is for real! Oh no you didn’t like Adam?? I used to love NA but lately I just can’t unless it is a fav author for me.

  7. I was drafting up my one for this and thinking THE SAME THING. Like, what makes an unpopular opinion?! lol Someone, somewhere, agrees with me. xD Anyway! I totally respect you for not going for Throne of Glass. It’s not for everyone, even though I adore it. *nods* I’m worried about that Patrick Ness book though. >_< I liked the first Chaos Walking book, but I had sooo much trouble starting it. Like I nearly DNF'd and then I fell in love, so YEAH I'M WORRIED ABOUT BOOK 2. *quakes*

      I totally had the same exact feeling with the first Chaos Walking book. I am sure the second is actually good I just couldn’t get into it. And so hate DNFing a book.

  8. I am so with you on the ridiculously insecure girl but I guess for me it depends how it’s played. I have Throne of Glass but I know it’s because I got caught up in the hype. I do plan on reading it but I can’t say I’m in a rush. I like this tag. I might actually do this one!

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      I always get caught up in hype. I hate not knowing what everyone else is talking about – Totally do the tag I would love to see your answers!!

  9. Ahhh, I can’t believe you didn’t like Mia! Ha, yes that is an unpopular opinion. I ado agree with you about the Throne of Glass series though. I read the premise and eh, not for me either.

  10. The one I am struggling with is the Selection by Kiera Cass, I thought it would be phenomenally exciting but so far the main character is a pain in the butt and I am really struggling to finish, hate DNF’ing!

    Never got in to If I Stay either! If we all like the same thing though, the blogosphere would be boring!

    Great post!!

  11. Hahah NO THRONE OF GLASS? Shame! Just kidding! You know, now that I think about it, I haven’t read many love triangle books where the MC choose someone other than the one I wanted them to end up with. I guess I haven’t read many love triangle books.

    Wow other than Throne of Glass I haven’t read anything on your list! So I can’t truly say if you’re a sheep or black sheep or not hahah!

      I know, I know. Maybe one day Thone of Glass will get added to my TBR just so I can say I read it and be on the conversation.

  12. I can’t even tell you how many times I tried to read the Time Traveler’s Wife. Like seriously I tried so many times and I just couldn’t get into it so I never even bothered with movie. I have to agree with you on the whole insecure girl thing going in NA. I roll my eyes and like always that was the PERFECT gif. WHERE DO YOU GET THIS STUFF?
