Thanks to Katniss Potter for the nomination! Yes, it was a million years ago. But I’m catching up, okay?
1. A popular book or series that you didn’t like
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. I HATED it, but it got awards. How?!?
2. A popular book that everyone hates but you love
Organising my Goodreads shelf by lowest rating, the one that stands out are Jacqueline Wilson’s books. I adore her, but most of her books rate around 3 stars! Guys, how are you not in love with her??
3. A love triangle where your ship didn’t sail
So many… City of Bones, even though it was always clear who Clary was going to choose. Twilight, although I was again obviously wrong. Hunger Games, but that’s actually based off the actors…
4. A popular genre that you hardly reach for
Horror. Lots of people love it, but I’m too much of a coward
5. A beloved character you didn’t like
Going with question 3, I really don’t like Jace! He’s too cocky for me, I can’t stand it (although I’m so in love with this picture)
6. A popular author you can’t get into
Gayle Forman. I hated hated hated If I Stay, then I went on to read the second one in the series. And guess what? I still hated it! So I have no intention of reading the rest of her books, no matter how big the hype. I’ve learned my lesson
7. A popular book series you have no interest in reading
Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, etc. They look too big and dreary for me. I kind of want to see the movies, but I don’t think that’ll happen either!
8. An adaption you liked better than the book
I can’t think of any off the top of my head… I’m going to go out there and say the Duff. I hated the book, but I’ve heard the movie is pretty different. I liked the potential the book had, so I’m hoping I’ll really enjoy the movie. Can anyone confirm that?
I’m nominating the people who most recently commented on my posts at the time that I wrote this:
And you! If you ever want to be nominated for a tag, just let me know. I can add you to the list for this one, or I’ll make sure to tag you for the next one (and there are A LOT)
