Anyway, thanks Sophie @ Blame it on Chocolate for tagging me for this controversial tag! If you haven’t yet checked out her blog, I encourage you to do so! She blogs about so many books, it’s amazing!
A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT YOU DIDN’T LIKE:
A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO HATE BUT YOU LOVE:
“Hate” may be too strong for this, but whenever I try to talk about it to people outside my family, they always think of the Coen Brothers movie, or the John Wayne movie. Like, okay, the Coen Brothers’ movie was a great adaptation, but the book is really unknown for some reason.
AN OTP THAT YOU DON’T LIKE:
I’m cheating, as I’m choosing a Webtoon, but Seol Hong and Jung Yu from Cheese in the Trap. Seol deserves way better…like, Jung has his sweet moments, but outside of those, he doesn’t have much development, and is creepily manipulative towards her. She even stays quiet about her opinions at parts because she doesn’t want to have an argument with him. I don’t understand why everyone loves them so much.
A POPULAR BOOK GENRE THAT YOU HARDLY REACH FOR.:
Maybe action…I’m cool with it as long as it isn’t the main genre. Same with sports.
A POPULAR/BELOVED CHARACTER THAT YOU DO NOT LIKE:
I’m cheating again, as I’m choosing a manga character, but maybe Light Yagami from Death Note. I don’t get how he has so many supporters; he’s a seventeen year old (for the first half) student with a God complex who is trying to rule the world. Would you really want that guy to become a dictator of a country, much less the world? He may have had good intentions in the beginning, but the moment he started killing people who simply got in his way (even though he was smart enough to eliminate them without killing them) I didn’t like him. He was an interesting protagonist and a good character, just not likable.
A POPULAR AUTHOR THAT YOU CAN’T SEEM TO GET INTO:
The fact that I’m picky about what I read seriously helps me with choosing fiction (I rarely come across something I strongly dislike) but does it say something that I have no interest in reading Carve The Mark, even though I liked the first two Divergent books? So maybe Veronica Roth.
A POPULAR BOOK TROPE THAT YOU’RE TIRED OF SEEING:
“Love cures all,” especially regarding mental illness. Like, no, your depression/OCD/other mental illness that doesn’t get enough representation, doesn’t go away overnight just because you fall in love with someone! It’s silly and irritating.
A POPULAR SERIES THAT YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN READING.:
The Webtoon Noblesse. I started reading it and just didn’t get the hype. I have no interest in it now.
THE SAYING GOES “THE BOOK IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN THE MOVIE”, BUT WHAT MOVIE OR TV SHOW ADAPTATION DO YOU PREFER MORE THAN THE BOOK?:
I also have a question for you guys: for my Analyzing Women’s Strength in Fiction series, should I update the pictures with GIFs and screenshots, or just let them be? Or would you prefer one over the other? Please let me know!
