Unpopular Opinions | Book Tag

I was tagged by Ida @aBooklover’sCorner and it really took me a few months to finally do this tag.  I wish I could have done it earlier Ida but as I was on hiatus, I hope you won’t mind me doing it now 😀

A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT YOU DIDN’T LIKE

Bildergebnis für six of crows

It’s actually a duology and I don’t really know if that counts, but I actually tried to read Six of Crows 5 times but I never really got into the story.

 

 

 

A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO HATE BUT YOU LOVEBildergebnis für cursed child

I think I did’t really like the Cursed Child. I know a lot of people loved the play, but I don’t think that I’d be even interested in actually watching it.

 

 

POPULAR BOOK GENRE THAT YOU HARDLY REACH FOR

Horror. I think I’d like to read more horror, but my TBR pile is already too high 😀

A POPULAR/BELOVED CHARACTER THAT YOU DO NOT LIKEBildergebnis für littlefinger

I know he is a really controversial character but I really hate Littlefinger from A Song of Ice and Fire. Lots of people love him but I just want him dead xD

A POPULAR AUTHOR THAT YOU CAN’T SEEM TO GET INTOBildergebnis für sarah J maas

I know people are going to hate me for saying this, but even though I did enjoy the ACOTAR series by Sarah J. Maas, I did find the writing and the structure of the overall plot of the trilogy to be lacking. Not because I didn’t like the plot, but because I felt like it wasn’t well thought-through. For me, it seemed like she was actually telling three stories.

I might try her other series and see how the story is there because some people told me that it was much  better than ACOTAR. We’ll see 😉

A POPULAR BOOK TROPE THAT YOU’RE TIRED OF SEEINGBildergebnis für discworld

Girl falls for boy only because he is sexy and box is trying to seduce girl to stop her from accomplishing mission X.

A POPULAR SERIES THAT YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN READING.

The Discworld series. My bf got me one of the books and even though I did enjoy reading it, it felt kind of weird to read the story, simply because I felt that the “humor’ in the story was more important than character development and plot.

THE SAYING GOES “THE BOOK IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN THE MOVIE”, BUT WHAT MOVIE OR TV SHOW ADAPTATION DO YOU PREFER MORE THAN THE BOOK?Bildergebnis für the wall got

Can’t think of any show or movie that was actually so much better than the books that I wish I had never read the books.

However, I prefer the HBO adaptation of the ASOIAF series to the books when it comes to Jon Snow. I loved him from the very first chapter of the first book and I do start to like him less in the books at some point ( I won’t spoiler you guys 😉 ). And I think the HBO adaptation did make Jon Snow to somebody I could have imagined him to become. So in that respect, the series was better than the books. But we all know J.R.R Martin and you never know what happens next in his books.

 

I hope you won’t hate me for me ‘unpopular opinions’ 😉 I Tag:

Ringing in the New Year Tag- Better late than never

Hey guys! As you know I have been busy these weeks BUT I have finally started to tackle my Tags and Awards and all the awesome things I want to talk about, starting today. Even though this was not the first tag I should to, I felt like it was a good thing to summarize a few thing here. I was tagged by Debby @ AlwaysBoking, Ida @ A booklover’s Corner and the girls over at LilBookLovers. Thank you for tagging me and sorry I caught up so late 😀

Best book/series you’ve read in 2016?

I would say there are quite a few candidates, so I will name two.

Best series: A Song of Ice and Fire

Best book: Portal of a Thousand Worlds

There is also ACOTAR and ACOMAF to mention but I read the first book in 2016 and the second in 2017 so there you are.. haha what a loop hole 😀

Authors that you’ve recently found and would to read more of in the New Year

There are some that I would love to read more about. The obvious thing is probably Sara J. Maas, J.R.R Martin but also, and I recommend those to everyone: Frances Hardinge and Annette Marie. They’re not so widely known but their books are really great and I have a few books of those two on my TBR for 2017, too.

Most anticipated book turned TV/Movie show.

One Picture: Bildergebnis für beauty and the beast

Name a character that you wouldn’t mind sharing a kiss on midnight

The High Lord of the Court of Dreams ❤

What’s on my TBR for 2017?

Bildergebnis für a court of wings and ruin cover   Bildergebnis für a feast of crows   RedWinter3 (cover) - Annette Marie   Bildergebnis für aristotle and dante discover the secrets of the universe   Wait for It   Bildergebnis für the hedge knight

To only show you a few 🙂

Will you participate in the Goodreads reading challenge or any other?

I will only participate in the Goodreads reading challenge. I want to read 100 books in 2017 and I’m on a good way 😀 But I also don’t want to participate in any other challenge. I feel like that would just spoil the fun if I had to search for a specific book of a specific author or a theme that I actually don’t feel interested in. So I will stick to my random TBR 😀

Any New Year’s resolution (bookish, blogging, or otherwise)?

2017 didn’t start well for me. Too much stress, too much work, not enough time for blogging or sports. But I did start to work out more and I read a lot, and I drink lots of smoothies. Since I wanted to live a little healthier and start working out again, I’d say I’m on a good way but I wish I had more time for blogging..

 

Honestly, I am so late, I won’t tag anybody because I think everybody who wanted to do it did it already. But if you wanted to do the tag, feel TAGGED 😀

Have a nice day guys!

lets-chat

Do you know any of the books I want to read? Are you excited about The Beauty and The Beast or don’t you like Disney? What is on your TBR this year? Let’s chat in the comments!

 

Looking Behind, Looking Ahead February

This month guys! There was a lot going on around here for the last two months that I couldn’t even take a look behind in January because I had to look ahead all the time.. So here I am, making sure you know what I did this last month 😉

The Reviews

The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, #2)   Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle, #3)   The Raven King (The Raven Cycle, #4)   The Bone Witch (The Bone Witch, #1)

Dream Thieves, Blue Lilly, Lilly Blue , The Raven King and The Bone Witch were the books I read and reviewed on my blog. There were a few others, but I only posted the reviews on Goodreads because I didn’t have much to say about those. You can find my review of the story people here.

The Story People

The Interviews

edenswishI had a great interview with author Tara M. Crowl and I got the opportunity to host a giveaway of her middle great book Eden’s Wish. You can read it here.

Other posts

I did exactly one What Are You Reading Wednesdays post and I wish I could have done more but this months was just overwhelming.

rahmenI also told you about my new project, or rather business. I started a european subscription book service featuring one fantasy book and other bookish and magical items each month. It’s called Magic Chest.

You can visit the shop here. Follow me on Instagram for the latest updates 😉

That’s it guys!

I have lots of cool books to read in March, but you’ll have to wait for that another time 😉
