Reacting To Unpopular Bookish Opinions

Guys. For today’s post I figured I’d do something I’ve seen both Jesse and Reagan do over on booktube: reacting to unpopular bookish opinions.

I really enjoyed both their videos and wanted to see what kind of opinions I would get from the people that interact with me and let me tell you, there were some really interesting ones in the mix.ย 

Why don’t we start with the one that had me gasping out loud the second I saw it (I didn’t actually react to any of them but I couldn’t not say anything about this one):

You guys probably know how much I love the Six Of Crows duology (I mean, I reread it annually) and to see this in my replies? I was shock. This might’ve been the opinion I was affected by the most as it’s about one of my all-time favorite books. But we all have different tastes so it’s alright.ย 

I’ve only read one of Adam’s books so far and while I enjoyed it and said I wanted to read more of his work – I haven’t gotten back to him since. People usually seem to just absolutely adore his work but I haven’t found myself there yet. Adam just might not work for us, Caro!

Up next we have an opinion that is more book blog related but I figured it’s still part of the bookish experience, right? As someone who doesn’t really do TBR posts I kind of agree? I just prefer hearing about what people thought of the books they read rather than what books they want to read for the upcoming month. However, for challenges and readathons I love TBRs as they give me ideas for my own TBRs too!ย 

Give me a second while I try and remember some of the movie tie-in editions of books I can think of on the spot. xD But yeah, as someone who has trouble picturing characters in books, having a visual representation of them really helps and might give the tie-in edition a slight advantage! I mean, HOW CUTE IS THE TIE-IN EDITION FOR TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE?

I don’t really have an opinion on this, to be honest. I read it once years and years ago (before the movie came out) and don’t remember much of it anymore. Though I’d be quite curious to see what I’d think of it if I read it now!

That’s an interesting one, for sure! I’ve only read a handful of her books but I did really enjoy them (especially her Shades Of Magic trilogy) but I can see how someone else wouldn’t enjoy them as we all look for different things! Which of her books have you read?

Hahaha, this could’ve been a tweet I wrote myself! My most loved and read books are filled with notes, tabs and highlighted passage. I spend a bit too much time going through certain copies and rereading favorite passages too but that’s also why I do all of the writing in and tabbing! What’s your most written in book?

I’m weirdly offended by this statement and it’s (=me being offended) stupid, I know. xD But coming fresh out of a Grisha trilogy reread and being back with the Darkling I’m reminded of why I loved him so much as a villain but we all like our characters differently!ย 

Now that you’ve heard my take on these unpopular opinions, I wanna hear you guys’! What are your thoughts on movie tie-ins, the Darkling, Victoria Schwab’s writing, the Six Of Crows duology, writing in your books, Adam Silvera’s books and/or Perks Of Being A Wallflower? Let me know in the comments down below and we can talk about it some more!

If you’ve got some unpopular opinions of your own that you’d love to share too, please do! I’d love to do a part 2 of this post down the line! ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Oh, I’m so glad someone else finally said they’re not into Adam Silvera! I feel so bad about not liking his books because they have all the makings of books I would like, but I just find him gimmicky. I always feel bad voicing my opinions on him because he’s so popular and also a queer writer who writes diverse queer characters, but…I just don’t like his books!

  2. I didn’t really enjoy The Perks of Being a Wallflower either! It was so hard to read and extremely disappointing.
    In terms of Adam Silvera, I really loved History is All You Left Me but HATED More Happy Than Not. I think I gave that book a 1 star rating.

  3. Ohhhh what a fun idea for a post, I love it! I have to admit, if I more often than not prefer a book’s original cover than the movie tie-in, the Lara Jean one looks ADORABLE. โค

  4. This is so fun!!!! I agree with the TBR one, I’m such a mood reader that specific TBRs don’t work for me. And I’ve only read ADSOM, and while I really enjoyed it, I also thought it was just okay? Like I thought there were so many brilliant things about it, it just didn’t fully click with me.

  5. That was such a great, fun post, I loved it!! โค It actually feels like I’m pretty much alone with my detachment from Adam’s books as everyone is very emotional about them … and I just kind of was not affected, so many he really doesn’t work for me ๐Ÿ˜…

    As for the other opinions, I feel the need to share
    Movie tie-ins: I actually don’t have anything against them to be honest and some versions can be super pretty, so I would love to buy them! (e.g. The Guernsey Literary Society has such a nice movie tie-in cover!)

    The Darkling: I’m Team Darkling, so I love him ๐Ÿ˜‚ He’s one of my favorite villains, but I also get that people don’t like him, as he’s a bit of a trash boy (but that’s why I love him) โค

    Victoria Schwabโ€™s writing: Ohh interesting! I have a mixed opinion on her books but I never had a problem with her writing style, it was rather plot or worldbuilding that had me conflicted ๐Ÿ˜„

    The Six Of Crows duology: As we buddy read it you know I loved it a lot ๐Ÿ˜

    Writing in your books: I have only done this twice, but I really like it! If only I had a better handwriting now ๐Ÿ˜‚

    Perks Of Being A Wallflower: I actually adore this book and have reread it several times, so I’m with the majority (?) that like the book ๐Ÿ˜„
