I got tagged by Kaja @ Of Dragons and Hearts to do the Unpopular Opinions tag, which I’ve been tagged for and tempted to do before, so clearly it’s about time…
A popular book/series everybody hates but you love: Well, everyone loves to rag on David Eddings’ work, but I do still enjoy The Diamond Throne. It was funnier than I remembered, and I really should finish my reread.
A love triangle where you didn’t like who the main character ended up with: Mal/Alina/Nikolai in Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha books. I liked the idea of Mal and Alina at first (friends to lovers is one of those tropes I like!), but Mal ended up being so jealous and unsupportive and just… no. Nikolai was much more charming.
A popular genre you hardly read: Hmm, this is a difficult one, because I read a bit of everything. I guess contemporary fiction that doesn’t contain any magic anywhere!
A popular/beloved character you dislike: Well, I don’t get it when people like Lancelot, 99.999% of the time? Mind you, I was pretty much trained to dislike him by Bernard Cornwell’s books. I also don’t get it when people like characters like Draco or Snape. Not so much my thing.
A popular trope you’re tired of reading: Love triangles… who isn’t?
A popular series you have no interest in reading: Divergent et al, I guess. I do actually have Divergent somewhere on my Kindle, and my partner quite enjoyed the series, but it’s not really speaking to me.
A movie you liked better than the book: I don’t watch that many movies, honestly. Captain America: The Winter Soldier? Does that count? I thought the adaptation was absolutely amazing.
