Top Ten Tuesday: Unpopular Bookish Opinions!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl in which we create bookish lists about everything from our favorite characters to love triangles and everything in between!

This Week's Theme: Unpopular Bookish Opinions


I am thinking about some of the opinions I have that are unpopular and I'm wondering if you all would hate me because of them? Well, I am going to share them below and leave you to be the judge. I am hoping this TTT will bring out some other readers who have similar opinions! I also could only come up with 8 this week. *Shrugs* 


  •  1. I don't like THE CRUEL PRINCE - I know almost everyone loves THE CRUEL PRINCE and all of its characters, but I don't? I actually really didn't like that book or Cardan for that matter. I think Cardan is an asshole and that the ship in the series is really toxic. You can view all my thoughts on the matter here

  • 2. Sometimes the Movie/Show is better - Not *all* the time but there are a few cases. I think the TV show for The 100 is a whole let better then the book and I think the television adaption for The Handmaid's Tale was more entertaining (I'm on both sides for The Handmaid's Tale though.) Sometimes the movies/shows are as good as the book! I'm looking at you Divergent and The Hunger Games


  • 3. I enjoy reading e-books more than physical books - Don't get me wrong, nothing beats having a physical book in your hands. But for my lifestyle e-books just work out a lot better for me in the long run. I can also read in bed when I'm suppose to be sleeping. 

  • 4. I don't mind spoilers - More often then not I end up spoiling the book for myself anyway. I'll go seeking the spoilers. *Shrugs* 

  • 5. I don't think every book needs a happily ever after - I'm looking at you Veronica Roth *wipes tears.* 


  • 6. I don't like Rainbow Shelves - Well I do, I think they are beautiful and I give people who can manage them so so so much credit. But I have to have my books organized by author. Even if the author has wrote different genres. Other then that they shelved as: My favorites towards the top.

  • 7. DNFing a book is okay - Life is too short for me to read a book that I am not enjoying (and my TBR is about ten miles long.) There is nothing wrong with DNFing a book.

  • 8. Some books are better off being stand-a-lones - I am not going to name any names. I am just going to stare are my bookcase.



Do you agree with these? Make sure to leave the link to your TTT so we can stop back!

  1. I agree with many of these. There are quite a few movies that I liked more than the books. Books tend to be better for me usually, but not always.

    1. Typically I find the books to always be better but personally I thought The Hunger Games was better as the movie then the book or The 100 made a wayyyyyy better TV show

  2. I like ambiguous endings. In fact, often I am irritated by the endings I call Hollywood-endings...where everything is tied up in a bow and everyone is happy. My TTT Bookish Opinions

  3. I thought the Divergent book was better than the movie. But I also thought Forrest Gump the movie was WAY better than the book too.

    1. Divergent is a tie for me, I think they do the movie really well compared with the book. I haven't read Forrest Gump but I love the movie!

  4. I agree with some of these opinions, actually.

  5. Nice list! I'm learning to dnf books I'm not enjoying. I used to finish everything I started reading, but I'm learning to let go and move on when I'm not enjoying something! Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

    1. It took me a while to learn to DNF but if you aren't loving it why are you going to waste your time?

  6. I don't like rainbow shelves either, it bothers me not having authors or even series together! I also agree that sometimes the movie/show is better than the book, in fact I can think of quite a few that are.

    1. They are pretty to look at but other then that I kind of stresses me out, I wouldn't know where to find everything

  7. I agree with several from you list. I love ebooks too (but also physical ones). I think ebooks are often more reasonable to purchase and come on, bookworms have shelf issues right? I also tend to read ebooks faster. Like you, I don't always need happily-ever-afters and yep, they look pretty but how functional are rainbow shelves?

    1. I read ebook so much faster then physical books at this point. I do have shelf space issues so its the perfect solution.

  8. I talked about the movie/show being better sometimes on my list this week as well. Couldn't agree with you more there!

  9. I agree! Some books are better off as standalones!

  10. I love this list! I never finished reading the Divergent trilogy but everyone keeps talking about that ending! I think as long as the ending makes sense, it doesn't necessarily have to be a "happy" one? Great post!

    1. Exactly, if it makes sense then it doesn't have to be happy. Obviously if it is a love story you are going to expect a happily ever after but dystopia could go either way!

  11. Rainbow shelves are pretty to look at, but how do you find anything?

  12. I have definitely come to love DNFing if a book is just not any good to me. I wasted a lot of time already and there are just too many other books calling my name!

  13. I liked The Cruel Prince but didn't like the sequel, and even though I did like the first book I don't really get the hype surrounding it. I don't like Cardan or the romance between him and Jude either!

    1. I don't understand the hype at all and I think the ship is toxic. But *shrugs*
