My Unpopular Opinions (you all are going to hate me)

Good morning, afternoon or evening my fellow readers. Lets be honest, we all have unpopular opinions. I have a few myself, so now I’m going to make you all hate me in the course of one single post.

1. I don’t hate this cover. I hate the others.

I haven’t read this series yet, and I see everyone talking about how ugly this cover is. Now I get that its different to the others, which is so annoying because it just doesn’t match, but I don’t hate it. It’s not my favourite cover ever made, but I actually kind of don’t like these:
I don’t know why, I just really don’t like these. Maybe its the person on the front, maybe its the font of the title, I don’t know, I just hate it.

2. Harry Potter is so annoying

I mean the character. The Harry Potter world is great, but Harry himself. Well I mean. I get that he lost his parents, and he’s being hunted by a crazy evil wizard, but he’s so self pitying. His entire personality just seems to be that fact that he is the ‘Chosen One’. I actually like him a lot better in the first ones, and as the series goes on I just don’t like him so much.

3. Draco and Snape aren’t the best Slytherins. Regulus is.

This one I will fight with you to the death. Lets take a quick second to just think about it. Snape only went to Dumbledores side and joined the Order because he was in love with Lily and wamted to save and ultimately avenge her. Otherwise he would have stayed and helped the Dark Lord. Draco is a coward. During the fight in Half Blood Prince he shouts to the death eaters that he’s on their side, and that he is with them, instead of just fighting with the Order. Coward. I think the only reason people like him is because of how sad and defeated he is in Deathly Hallows. He’s actually not that great. AAAND he joined the Death Eaters when everyone thought Harry was dead.

Now Regulus joined the Death Eaters as an influence from his parents, and actually ended up giving his life so that Voldemort would one day die. Remember what he wrote on the note?

To the Dark Lord
I know I will be dead long before you read this but I want you to know that it was I who discovered your secret. I have stolen the real Horcrux and intend to destroy it as soon as I can. I face death in the hope that when you meet your match you will be mortal once more.

See? He didn’t deserve to die. He was brave, and he was about the age of Draco and Harry, so no excuse for cowardice.
I rest my case.

4. Jace was less annoying in the first few books.

He was! In the first few he was funny and sarcastic and kind of normal. In the last few he was all love sick and self pitying, he and Harry could form a club! After City of Lost Souls he became so annoying! He was constantly crying to Clary how miserable and how traumatic his life was. Hella quick note, he seemed fine with it before, in the first books, so idk.
Thats not to say that it wasn’t traumatic, but it became his entire personality. He just wasn’t so witty any more, and he was completely and absolutely in love with Clary, when just before he was certain that to love is to destroy, and to be loved was the one to be destroyed. Like boy, get your thoughts together. He doesn’t think twice about Clary.

5. Sizzy was not it. I’m sorry.

I won’t say what book this is from, because spoilers, so if you know you know. I didn’t like these 2. They seemed so forced together, because he was friendzoned earlier. There was no buildup, there was nothing that made me think that it might happen. Yeah it wasn’t for me.

6. Shatter Me was a major disappointment.

I’ve talked about this before, but it really was. I didn’t finish the first book even, because it was so boring and so annoying.
Nothing against the author, because I’ve read her other book and it was great, but this one was just ๐Ÿ˜“
The insta love at the beginning, and Juliette being completely sure that everyone must be in love with her, regardless. She just really pissed me off. Adam was all right, but again, the insta love is always a bad thing.

7. Romance is over rated

I dont know of I’m the only one, but books with a romance plot just don’t do it for me. I don’t like that the whole thing is based on romance, because there is really nothing going on. And its unrealistic too. Its so hard to find a romance that I like. In some books I enjoy having romance, as long as there’s something else going on, preferably a mystery like in Death Sculptor (I totally ship Alice and Robert) or a fantasy world in crisis ๐Ÿ˜†

8. We Hunt The Flame is the best written fantasy. End of.

I’ve seen so many people say they didn’t like this book, and it just breaks my heart because I can’t believe how good it is ๐Ÿ˜ญ Its beyond any book I could have asked for, in any measure. I’m reading it right now, and I’m in love. (Also Nasir though. I LOVE HIM!) I will fight you to the death on this, no questions asked.

I also have a fair more, like how great true crime is (I found the audiobook of The Night Stalker by Philip Carlo, and it’s brilliant) or how historical fiction is the best genre there is, or how I don’t think classics are pretentious, or how cool it is to study dead languages, but I feel like those are all widely agreed upon in the bookish world, and its just unpopular with everyone else.

I’m now currently working on my escape because I can see everyone charging at me from a mile off. Good bye!

  1. I agree with most of these. Especially the one where you have written โ€˜Harry is so annoyingโ€™
    Also, hey! Iโ€™m new to your blog but Iโ€™m enjoying your posts a lot!

  2. Oof I disagree with so many things. I especially disagree with the Jace one. Even though he was more sarcastic and funny in the first books, that was just to cover up all of his pain. In the later books he finally started dealing with his issues instead of pretending they didnโ€™t exist. Maybe he was less funny but I thought it was good character development. But itโ€™s interesting to hear your opinion.

    And as far as shatter me goes, the first book is the worst in the series. Adam is the worst and the romance is actually really good once she realizes that other boys exist besides the first one who was nice to her. Plus itโ€™s got a great squad and some funny characters.

    Sorry that this was super long. And I totally respect all of your opinions. I was just sharing mine. I loved this post though!

    1. Ooh here we are! Not gonna lie I mostly wrote this post to get the conversation going ๐Ÿ˜…
      Ok I get that he was trying to cover up his pain, but in the later books he seemed to lose his personality, because Jace was just naturally witty and sarcastic, and his reaction to everything in the last few books seemed far removed.

      Honestly I don’t think I have much right to say that Shatter Me is really crap because I didn’t even finish the first book ๐Ÿ˜… I thought Adam was ok, he respected her i think. I think it was mostly Juliette though who bothered me. She was so self obsessed, and she seemed determined to believe that every boy who ever laid eyes on her was in live with her. At the very beginning she completely believed that Adam was in love with her as soon as he walked in the room.
      Of course, I respect yours too, I think it’s really fun to have different opinions on books, it makes them so much more interesting to talk about. Thank you so much โ˜บ

      1. I love talking about bookish opinions too. And I completely agree that book one Juliette was really annoying, but she has some of the best character development that I’ve ever seen in some of the later books.

  3. Yup, Regulus is better than Snape and Draco. Harry is annoooying sometimes.I saw somewhere order of the phoenix is called Harry YELLS IN CAPSLOCK BOOK? I’m not interested in reading ACOTAR series but I might continue Shatter me. Loved reading this post!

  4. i honestly don’t like any of the acotar covers rip :’) and harry was by far the most annoying character of the series. i usually love romance in books (as long as it’s not overly smutty), but i like reading books without romance too (though those are hard to find)! lovely post โค

    1. Thanks Katie ๐Ÿ˜Š I’m glad you agreed, I thought most people love Harry a lot! Every now and then romance is pretty great, and a nice break from other books, but I do tend to read books with a fantasy or mystery element to them, just so it isn’t all about the romance โ˜บ

  5. I literally panicked when you said about Harry potter, glad i carried on reading it.
    I understand where youโ€™re coming from. It all looks a little forced, everything going wrong for him, him looking for trouble etc. Heโ€™s just so extra.
    In regards to the better slytherin, idk itโ€™s hard because Snape put everything on the line just for love and how many of us saw the ending coming? Hmmmm
    Cos I didnโ€™t and it really changed my perception on him

    1. Haha yeah, I knew that was going to stir some conversation ๐Ÿ˜… I see where you’re coming from, but Snape wouldn’t have done any of that if he hadn’t loved Lily. He wasn’t actually good, he was on the good side (ie the Order) because he knew that was the side Lily would have been on. He wouldn’t have joined them if Lily hadn’t died, he would still be a Death Eater. But Regulus died so that one day Voldemort might also die, he gave himself up for the cause and died in a cave alone.


      1. Which is something that is absolutely correct but at the same time, Regulus only did because he was afraid of Voldemort and knew what would happen to him if Voldemort found out, so technically he was looking after himself only, which in return ended up helping out Harry

      2. Regulus wasn’t afraid of Voldemort, he found out about the horcruxes and went out of his way to try destroy one, and tricked Voldemort with a fake one. He only died because of the things in the cave and because he gave his life to save the elf. It did help Harry but he did it because he wanted Voldemort dead.


      3. Unfortunately, Iโ€™m gonna have to disagree on that Cherry. I know how you feel about Regulus. Snape hated everyone but still risked his life to save the boy for love!
        There are so many moments within the book that end up saving Harty thanks to Snape. Regulus did one thing that ended up helping them in the long run, what about day to day tasks and events that Harry wouldnt have coped with, without the help of Snape

      4. Haha that’s ok, everyone has their own opinions, and probably the best part of books is to talk about them ๐Ÿ˜„ That is true, Snape helped Harry out many times, but in the grand scheme of things Regulus sacrificed a lot. Snape was definitely helpful and loving in his own way, so I guess he was also one of the princes of Slytherin โ˜บ


  6. Lol really? You like the ACOSF cover?? ๐Ÿ˜‚
    I do agree with you on Draco and Snape weren’t the best Slytherins out there. And yes, Jace was less annoying in the beginning!
