Top Ten Tuesday // Unpopular Book Opinions

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish, but is now hosted at  That Artsy Reader Girl!

This week’s meme is unpopular bookish opinions! I have SO MANY of these, so narrowing it down to just 10 was hard AF. Ya’ll will come to find out that I hardly agree with half of the opinions in the bookish community. 

Let’s jump into it, shall we! Also, these are just my opinions! So if we don’t agree, no biggie.Image result for Don't come for me gif

  • I still dog-ear my pages when I don’t have a bookmark and don’t really see the big deal about doing it.
  • I think the Harry Potter books are okay. Even younger Kayla never really thought they were wonderful. This is the one book/book series that I prefer the movies!

  • I hate the terms Chick Lit and Women’s Fiction.
  • I love me a fucked up love interest. Like seriously, stalkers and psychos are welcome here. I know we are supposed to say “oh no” and “he’s terrible“, but I’m always drawn to those.  (Examples: Maven from the Red Queen series, Vicious by L.J. Shen)
  • I don’t participate in Smut-A- Thon because I find it annoys me. The books that people are reading and judging supercritically are books that I love and hold dear to my heart. 
  • I would rather read a standalone than keep up with a series. Ya’ll, my memory is so crappy and I ALWAYS have to do a reread before the next book releases. 
  • I really dislike movie or tv show cover adaptations. Just nope!
  • I actually enjoyed the Fifty Shades of Grey series.
  • I don’t read books from male POV because I find myself trying harder to relate.
  • I can’t read a book that doesn’t have any romance in it. lightpinkdivider

So there are 10 of my unpopular book opinions. What are some of yours? 

Thanks for reading

  1. I ALWAYS prefer standalones – my memory also sucks! It’s the same reason I prefer TV shows that don’t have complicated plotlines (like Game of Thrones), I much prefer the shows you can just watch random episodes and understand just fine (like Friends)!!

  2. I’m with you on Chick Lit and Women’s Fiction frustration. My favorite book of 2017 was The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo which is technically Women’s Fiction. I would never have found it myself in the bookstore had it not been recommended to me by a friend. I wish books were all just shelved in one fiction section. I feel like branding a book Women’s Fiction intentionally pushes men away from buying/reading, which is unfortunate.
