Unpopular Opinions

It's been years since I did this. Like way back in August 2015. So I decided to do an updated version just to see how my thoughts have changed. Now, before we get into this, I have to say this, just because I may not like something doesn't make me a bad person, just because you don't like something also doesn't make you a bad person. We are all our own people, with our own thoughts. 

With all that said and done, let's get into the questions!

1) A Popular Book/Series That You Didn't Like

I still feel like I got a different book from everyone else. It really felt like a 'been there done that' kind of book. The characters were really bland and now that more time has past, I don't see why this series got so popular.

2) A Popular Book/Series That Every One Else Seems to Hate but You Love

If you were involved in the YA book community around the time the ARC for this one was going around, you know some people were losing their mind over one review that was written. This book is HATED by people who've never even read it.

I read it. Thought it was a little heavy handed with its message but I loved it. A great book, anyone who loves YA fantasy with a strong message should read this book.

3) A Love Triangle Where the Main Character Ended Up with the Person You Did NOT Want Them to End Up with OR an OTP That You Don't Like

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!!!! Skip to the next question if you don't want to be spoiled for this series.

Okay... so. If you've read this series you'll know what I mean, she got to have her cake and eat it too. She got to spend her mortal like for Jeb and then get to be young forever with Morpheus. It's really not fair to Jeb nor was he even worth it. She should've just chosen Morpheus and all would have been better. Just saying.

4) A Popular Book Genre That You Hardly Reach For

Memoirs. I've only ever read a handful of memoirs and I really, really, REALLY, want to change that. So hopefully this year I will read at least a dozen memoirs. That is my goal. If you have any recommendations, leave them below, please!

5) A Popular or Beloved Character That You Do Not Like

I could name quite a few but I will just name three:
A) Hermione Granger
Before you burn me at the stake, let me explain myself. Hermione has a lot of characteristics that I love. She's smart, confident, brave and so on. That being said, she's so freaking annoying in the early books, a know it all brat that I wished she'd fall off the face of the earth.
B) Alina Starkov
This could've easily been Mal but I got more of a bone to pick with Alina because of how she lets everyone treat her, especially in Shadow and Bone. She just pretty much goes along with whatever anyone says and it's sad. Get a backbone chick, stand up for yourself. Use your freaking voice! Say what you want about the Darkling but at least he was a very well developed character that wasn't scared to speak up.
C) Tamin - A Court of Thorns and Roses
I don't want to ruin this series if you've never read it (If you're not read it, what are you doing with your life? No really, what are you doing? Stop reading this, get the book and dive in, you'll thank me later), that being said, once you get to the second book especially, you'll see what I mean.

6) A Popular Author That You Can't Seem to Get Into

Please don't kill me for this, I mean no disrespect but I just can't get into James Patterson. If he's your favorite author, that's great, you do you. I don't like his writing or the way he does his chapters. Honestly, I just think he's kind of overrated.

7) A Popular Book Trope That You're Tired of Seeing

This is one that hasn't changed from the first time I did this. Insta-love. I still can't stand it. This trope can ruin a book for me. There's not a single other trope I can think of that can do this but insta-love just makes me roll my eyes and put the book down. You can't fall in love at first sight, you can feel lust or attraction, for sure, but not love. How can you love someone just based on looks? You know nothing about them. It makes no sense and I want this trope to die.

8) A Popular Series That You Have No Interest in Reading

This series was everywhere a few years back and I've seen it coming back now that another novel has been released but it still just doesn't sound good to me.

9) The Saying Goes 'The Book's Always Better than the Movie', but What Movie or TV Show Adaptation Do You Prefer More than the Book?

This one is easy for me and if you've been reading my recent reviews you'll already know what I'm going to chose.

Original Review
The main plot is never settled in this novel, the cliff hanger really made me upset. Subplots are all wrapped up nicely but I just didn't like the ending of this novel. I'm sorry. I liked the writing, the characters and pretty much everything else but that cliff hanger... I will not be picking up the second in this series.

That being said, the Netflix movie is just freaking perfection! I loved the cast, the story, the script. Just everything is perfect and I wish they'd bring it to DVD so I could own it on my shelf. I've watched this movie at least 8-9 times and now I want to watch it again after talking about it. If you've got Netflix, then you need to watch this! It's so good.

Well, this is pretty much it. I hope you enjoyed this. Let me know if you agree or disagree with any of my choices. As always, have a great day little butterflies and happy reading. I'm off to watch To All the Boys I've Loved Before, again....

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading! 

Bisexual Erasure (Pride Month)

Happy Pride! Since today is bisexual day, I wanted to talk about something important to me. I hope you'll listen with open ears, mind, and heart. Thank you.  I’ve seen this happening for years now. People will say things like, “it’s a phase” or “pick a side.” I’ve even seen some say that bisexual people only like cisgender men and women and exclude all other genders. Which isn’t always the case. Sure, some bisexual people feel that way, which is why pansexual and other names came into play. But at its core, being bisexual just means that you’re attracted to more than just one gender.  I’ve never hidden on this blog the fact that I’m bisexual but I rarely talk about the struggles I feel because it just never felt right when you have gay people that have to hide their complete selves for fear of what the world could do to them.  Or trans people who spend every day trapped in the wrong body and can’t tell anyone to get the things they need to be their truth selves.  Put against issues
