Top 10 Tuesday

Top 10 Tuesday – Unpopular Bookish Opinions

Hey booknerds! I’m taking part in another week of Top Ten Tuesday!

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. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. You can find more information here

So these are my unpopular bookish opinions and well…don’t hate me because I know that a lot of you love these but I just don’t. Sorry!

1 I cannot stand Feyre and Rhysand from ACOTAR. I never liked Feyre and well, Rhysand’s character was problematic from the beginning. By the time I read ACOFAS I could not stand them AT ALL! Like seriously I do not want to see them again in any future books. Just let them go have babies and play happy families somewhere far away.

2 I am also not a fan of Rowan and Aelin from Throne of Glass. While I don’t hate them I still don’t see why everyone loves them so much, especially Rowan. He’s so meh. I think I just cannot stand overprotective, overly jealous, macho alpha males.

3 On the other hand I do love Chaol from Throne of Glass and I feel like he doesn’t deserve the hate he gets. I really liked his character and his bromance with Dorian and I really loved Tower of Dawn, even though it felt more like Yrene’s story than his.

4 I am not a fan of John Green books. I just cannot get into them at all and by this popint I’ve given up even trying.

5 Another popular character that I don’t like is Carden. I especially do not like that him and Jude are meant to be love interests because he has bullied her for so long and why? Oh because he liked her. Urm hell no! That is not okay!

6 I have no interest in reading or watching Game of Thrones. That’s all you get from me.

7 I also have no interest in reading or watching Outlander. I mean I tried to watch a couple episodes but it was so violent and so much sexual assault that I just couldn’t stomach it, no matter how interesting the storyline is.

8 Deckled edges look pretty but are an actual nightmare when you try and read the actual book.

9 Snape got the redemption arc that Draco deserved. I’m still salty about Harry naming his kid after him.

10 And the last one, I did not enjoy The Night Circus. I really struggled to get into it, I found the writing confusing and I got pretty bored reading it.

So there you have it! My unpopular bookish opinions!

Share yours with me in the comments and you can of course disagree with mine and others but please be polite and respectful of each other!

  1. I’m with you on Game of Thrones. It’s like someone asked me for a checklist of what I don’t want to watch or read about, and then wrote a book based on that list.

  2. ahahaha, I just don’t click with SJM at all, I tried ACOTAR and it wasn’t for me. I read a couple chapters of TOG and couldn’t stand the heroine. yesterday my mother was telling me about this great new series she’s reading about an assassin (you can see where this is going!) and how she was bingeing all the books because she loves it so much and I’m like, awesome, rec me, what is it? THRONE OF GLASS, lmao. oh well.

    I haven’t even bothered picking up The Cruel Prince because the love interest is an asshat and we’re meant to ship it, wtf? WHY.

    1. Lol as annoying as I find Aelin in ToG I do still really love the books mainly because of the other characters though. But I can see why you wouldn’t want to invest all that time into the books lol
      Omg I hate that we’re supposed to ship jude and carden even though he basically bullies and humiliates her throughout the book? Like how toxic can it get?!
