This should be interesting! Let me know whether you agree or disagree with any of these.

1. A popular book or series that you didn’t like
Twilight. When I was reading it, I enjoyed it, but afterward when I really began to unpack the story and the characters, I just found it to be lacking, especially when you compare
2. A popular book that everyone hates but you love
This is going to sound odd, especially after my review of The Crown, but I really love the main three books in the Selection Series. There was just something magical about it.
3. A love triangle where your ship did not sail
Red Queen. I don’t really want to say too much just because I may end up accidentally spoiling the book for those who haven’t read it yet, but let’s just say that I wish the ending of Red Queen was just a joke and didn’t really happen.
4. A popular genre that you hardly reach for.
Horror. Actually, I don’t think I’ve ever willingly reached for a horror book. There’s just something about choosing to read (or watch, for horror movies) something you know will scare you that doesn’t really make sense to me.
5. A beloved character you didn’t like
Harry Potter’s Severus Snape. I’m sorry, but loving Harry’s mum doesn’t give him the right to treat Harry horribly. He was just too sour for the majority of the series and I couldn’t get past it, although my hatred for him turned into a mere dislike by the end of Deathly Hallows.
6. A popular author you can’t get into
To be honest, there aren’t really any authors that I outright dislike or can’t get into, because for me I read the books based on what they’re about, and if they’re by an author that I already love, even better.
7. A popular book series you have no interest in reading
The Ender Quintet. This is a bit of a cheat answer here, since I did read the first book in the series, but I’m not likely to finish the series.
8. An adaptation you like better than the book
While I love The Hobbit, I have to say that the movies did an amazing job bringing the book to life, and when the three movies put together add up to 513 minutes of dwarven shenanigans for a 320-page book, you know it’s going to be good.
