So this was a nice little distraction from the news about my mom. Tiny update: My in-laws have decided to move out (they can actually live upstairs in their house) and my mom is moving in. She has about 6 months to live with the cancer in her lungs and she does not want any treatments….so enough of that on to the book tag.
I found this tag from: Dark Dreamer Reads
The Tag: Popular Book Tag
A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT YOU DIDN’T LIKE:
So many…I guess series-wise I’d have to say Percy Jackson. Just could not get into them. Maybe I’m just too old. ☹
A POPULAR BOOK OR BOOK SERIES THAT EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO HATE BUT YOU LOVE:
I’m not sure I’ve heard anyone say they hate it, but I never hear anyone talk about The City of Ember. It’s a great series in my option, but no one ever acknowledges it.
AN OTP THAT YOU DON’T LIKE:
Laia and Elias in Ember in the Ashes. Just seems kind of forced and the connection is because they think the other is hot stuff…no substance.
A POPULAR BOOK GENRE THAT YOU HARDLY REACH FOR.:
Memoirs…I’m not sure non-fiction counts here, but the life of someone better be pretty amazing before I pick it up and I want to learn something from them, not just random ramblings about someone’s childhood.
A POPULAR/BELOVED CHARACTER THAT YOU DO NOT LIKE:
Oh no…there are actually a lot…lol. I’ll name my top three…1) Bella Swan 2) Mae from The Circle 3) Shadow from American Gods
A POPULAR AUTHOR THAT YOU CAN’T SEEM TO GET INTO:
Well, I have two, but I really want to give them second chances. I’m probably most likely not going to read another Rick Riordan book. He is just not my style, but then again, I might try one of his books again.
A POPULAR BOOK TROPE THAT YOU’RE TIRED OF SEEING:
Probably a love triangle…although I’m guilty of using one in a romance anthology that will be coming out later this year…shame on me 😉
A POPULAR SERIES THAT YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN READING:
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:
I think there was another tag I answered this question in so that makes it easy!
