Hello everyone and it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday! Wow! I’ve done 10 of these already. Honestly I’m so happy I’ve been sticking to this weekly meme. I love making lists, love talking about books. It just works for me.
This was an idea created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
The rules basically go a little like this:
- Jana creates a new topic every Tuesday to make your list, and you create your own Top Ten (or three, or five, or twenty, however many you choose!)
- Link back your posts to That Artsy Reader Girl so when others read your post, they’ll know where to go to get more info about future upcoming topics.
- There is a linky widget on Jana’s Top Ten Tuesday post so other’s can see your post as well as you being able to check out everyone else’s! So definitely leave your links!
- Don’t be afraid to add your own twist to it!
This week’s topic: Bookish Unpopular Opinions
(1) I don’t like the love relationship between Billy & Daisy (Daisy Jones & The Six)
Honestly, I got really mad when they started to lean towards a love relationship. When they were about to kiss I was screaming. A lot of people like them together, I am 100% a Camila fan. Camila and Billy forever lol.
(2) I love Fifty Shades of Grey
I get so much shame for this, but I loved these books when I read them. I don’t really like, take things too sensitively in books. Like yeah, was he a little crazy? Sure. As long as a book entertains me, I’m okay with that. This books was very interesting and addicting. I think this is my biggest unpopular opinion lol.
(3) Why are people so crazy over Harry Potter?
I never understood this! I’m glad I’ve read some of the books, they are great books. But why are some people literally obsessed with this series. People drop BIG money just for wands! Seriously??? I just never got that. Explain to me why that is the way it is lol.
(4) Re-tellings flop most of the time
Other than like two re-telling’s I’ve read (I’m looking at you Romanov and Fairest of All), when I see an author is writing a re-telling I kind of just roll my eyes and get real disappointed. The re-telling’s never come up to par with what I need it to be. PSA: You can’t make a Cinderella re-telling and have like no step-sisters, no evil mother. Just because your main character is a house maid DOESN’T mean she’s Cinderella lol.
(5) If a book doesn’t have LGBTQ+ rep or diverse characters, it doesn’t mean it’s a bad book
This is one that bothers me sometimes because, I feel like book community see’s a lack of diversity or LGBTQ+ rep in a book and want to shame it. I kind of take the book for what it is and run with it. If there’s diversity and plenty of rep, great! I love that, if there’s not, I’m not going to like lower my rating because of it. I may say I wanted to see more diverse characters, but if I have to give it a lower rating, it will most likely never be based on that. If I like a book, I like a book. Simple as that.
What are some of your unpopular bookish opinions?
