Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This week’s Top Ten is about Unpopular Bookish Opinions. So here we go, don’t hate me 🙂
1. I DNF’d An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
I know John Green is a very popular author, but I couldn’t get through An Abundance of Katherines. I managed to force myself through about 100 pages, but just couldn’t finish it. I’ve been afraid to read anything else by John Green.
2. I didn’t like We Were Liars by E Lockhart
I found it predictable and wasn’t impressed by the ending. It felt too sitcom.
3. I get stressed thinking about Unhauling
Yes I unhaul some books, but thinking about it stresses me out. I love having all the books – but to be honest, I’m running out of room lol
4. Organizing books by Genre bugs me
I’ve had my books sorted by Genre for a year or so now and it’s bothered me for about a year lol. I really wanted to go back to alphabetical order by author, but resorting just overwhelmed me. I’m doing it now – because I’ve built more shelves – but just doing the process is just SO MUCH!
5. I love all the tropes!
Ok maybe I have a hard time picking out the majority of “tropes”, but when they’re listed to me I can’t seem to think of any that I don’t enjoy – I challenge you to list one for me that I should hate!
6. I’m not big on dragons
I’ve only read a few books with dragons in it, but I just don’t get it. Maybe I haven’t read the right ones yet – I keep trying.
7. I hated Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
I know so many people who loved this book – but I really just didn’t get it.
8. I have no clue what Hogwarts House I am and I don’t know if I care
I just randomly pick one when I’m supposed to pick a house for group reads or challenges. I could do a test, but when you haven’t read more than Book 1, what’s the point?
9. I fall asleep while reading Classics
No matter how hard I try, reading classics puts me to sleep. I have finished some, but it takes me way, way longer than it should. For example, Alice and Wonderland (which I loved) took me a week because I would take mini naps in between.
10. I watch Unhaul videos on Booktube to get book ideas
Yup, that’s right. I watch videos about books being unhauled so I can pick those titles up later at thrift stores. I have no clue why – sometimes the premise sounds good, some times I’m reminded of books I use to want to read but have forgotten about, sometimes it’s just a weird need.
Well, there you go. Ten Unpopular Bookish Opinions – well I think.
What about you? Do you agree with any of these? Or do you have some that you want to share?
