Hello Lovelies! Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Unpopular Bookish Opinions. I have a lot of those and I actually had to narrow this list down to only ten.

A lot of these opinions are about popular series so please don’t be upset if I dislike your favorite series. We all have different opinions and there are going to be people out there that hate your favorite book. For example, my favorite author is Sarah J. Maas and not a day goes by where I don’t see some negativity towards her books on the internet.

Anyways, here are some of my unpopular opinions:

𝟏. 𝐋𝐞𝐢𝐠𝐡 𝐁𝐚𝐫𝐝𝐮𝐠𝐨 𝐢𝐬 𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐝

Everyone seems to LOVE Leigh Bardugo and worship the ground she walks on. I have tried both the Grisha trilogy and Six of Crows and neither one blew me away.

𝟐. 𝐀𝐂𝐎𝐅𝐀𝐒 𝐰𝐚𝐬𝐧’𝐭 𝐚 𝐛𝐚𝐝 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤

Everyone seems to hate this book and almost no one that I have seen likes it. But I do. Was it the best book in the series? No. But did I enjoy getting to see the characters and see them relax for once? YES!!

𝟑. 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐑𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐧 𝐂𝐲𝐜𝐥𝐞 𝐰𝐚𝐬 𝐝𝐫𝐚𝐰𝐧 𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐛𝐞𝐞𝐧 𝐭𝐰𝐨 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐬 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐞𝐫

I read this whole series and the last two books were just a waste of my time. Nothing really happened and everything that did was boring… I love the characters to pieces but the story should have been over way before it was.

𝟒. 𝐐𝐮𝐞𝐞𝐧 𝐨𝐟 𝐀𝐢𝐫 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐃𝐚𝐫𝐤𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐰𝐚𝐬 𝐛𝐚𝐝

Cassandra Clare is my second favorite author and I have loved her books for six years now. But QoAaD was just a giant let down.

My review is here if you want to read it. I go into a lot more detail about why I disliked the book in it.

𝟓. 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐇𝐮𝐧𝐠𝐞𝐫 𝐆𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐬 𝐣𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐰𝐚𝐬𝐧’𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐠𝐨𝐨𝐝

I tried to read this series and I made it about halfway through the first book before I just couldn’t do it anymore. I hated the romance and the movies were better.

𝟔. 𝐁𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐬 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐬𝐦𝐮𝐭 𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐧’𝐭 𝐜𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐲

A lot of BookTubers or bloggers that I have seen seem to hate romance books for their sex scenes and find them extremely awkward/cringy. Well I don’t. I LOVE romance books and there is nothing wrong with smut to me!

𝟕. 𝐃𝐞𝐜𝐤𝐥𝐞𝐝 𝐞𝐝𝐠𝐞𝐬 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐣𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐢𝐧 𝐚𝐧𝐧𝐨𝐲𝐢𝐧𝐠

I bought a couple of books with deckled edges not knowing what hell I would go through while reading the books. I swear it would take me like 30 seconds to just flip one page! UGH!!

𝟖. 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐦𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐫𝐲 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐬 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐛𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠

Maybe it’s because I am used to fantasy books, but whenever I read a contemporary now, I am just bored to tears. They don’t have that risk factor that fantasy books have. I typically end up DNFing it or only reading extremely dark contemporaries now.

𝟗. 𝐑𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐧 𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐚𝐭 𝐚 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞 𝐢𝐬 𝐣𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐭𝐨𝐨 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐟𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠

I see other bloggers talk about reading three and four books at a time and I just can’t do it! I have read two books at a time once and I hated it. I kept getting confused and would have to reread chapters. It was a disaster.

𝟏𝟎. 𝐇𝐚𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐧 𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐜𝐨𝐩𝐲 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐚𝐦𝐞 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐢𝐬 𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭

I used to see bloggers have more than one copy of the same book on their shelves and I thought that they were crazy! It seemed like a waste of money and shelf space to me. Two years and six copies of Kingdom of Ash alone on my shelf, I would have to say I disagree. It’s GREAT!!! 😂

Thank you for joining me on Top Ten Tuesday! I loved writing my unpopular bookish opinions and I would love for you to let me know what you think! And I would love to read yours! If you have done this post, feel free to leave a link to yours down below!

  1. Lovely post!

    I agree with you on so many points. Totally agree with no. 1, even though I loved Bardugo’s books that came after Soc. Her Shadow&bone trilogy was not very good. Also, I loved Acofas, it was a nice change of pace, I read this series in one sitting so imagine all the feels I got after the end of Acowar, I just needed Acofas in my life when I read it.

    I am two books into The Raven Cycle and I love the characters and the overall plot of the book but it still feels a lot of set up for what is to come. Also, yeah to smut! It’s a romance and sex is a way of expression, if done right, it speaks volumes about the intimacy between a couple.
