This is a really fun meme created by That Artsy Reader Girl! Check out her blog and check out what the next top ten Tuesday will be!
I don’t know that I have general unpopular opinions but I’m going to list what I have! I am terrified of sharing unpopular opinions! So, please don’t hate me. 😛
The Mortal Instruments series: It just wasn’t that great, in my opinion. I feel like I wasted time reading these books. I LOVE The Infernal Devices though.
2. John Green Books. Not. For. Me. Real life is hard and sad enough without the hopelessness that is in his books.
3. Token Gay Character. Stop trying to prove you are so PC by adding or making characters gay WAY LATER IN THE SERIES. Like, I’m talking there were no signs whatsoever, then people complain, then the author is like, “What? No! I’m PC! This character was actually gay the whole time!”
4. Insta Love. So annoying.
5. The Shack. Probably my most hated book.
6. The Grisha Trilogy. I cringed every moment that wasn’t filled with Nikolai (I love him)
7. On the heals of that, the Darkling. I didn’t like him. He was a jerk.
8. The Hazel Wood. Not sure if this is unpopular but I reeeeaaalllly didn’t like it. It was depressing with no redemption.
9. The Selection Series. I loved this series. And most people seem to dislike it now.
10. Here’s a good one. I have hidden ones I will never tell ANYONE! HA!

This is a blog meme created by Lia, Lost in a Story! I have seen almost everyone I follow do this so I thought I would give it a try!
“Down The TBR Hole is a meme that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.
Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when you’re scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well that’s going to change!
It works like this:
Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
Order on ascending date added.
Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
Read the synopses of the books
Decide: keep it or should it go?”
Sounds fun, right? My TBR on Goodreads is (I think) way out of control! I have 1, 064 books on my to-be-read shelf. Yikes! When I first started Goodreads in 2012, I added books by author. So I am going to skip the first few authors because they are some of my favorites, and go right to when I started adding books at random. I think I’ll start with 10 books!
GO. I’ve had this on my TBR since 2012. I have no interest in reading this. To be honest, I added this to broaden my reading scope and to have an “interesting” conversation piece when I talk to “smart book people”. I’ve grown up a lot since then and have since decided that I do not care at all if I don’t read the “smart” books. I just like reading whatever I like reading, if that makes sense.
KEEP. I think this sounds super interesting and right up my ally! I love historical novels. I usually hate politics BUT I love it when it comes to Adult Fantasy books (not in YA. It’s too “I have a political agenda”) OR historical ones like this.
KEEP. I really liked the musical so I would like to read the book too!
GO. I’m trying to be strict and not keep books that I maybe-might read someday.
GO. I just literally have no interest in this.
KEEP. I am all about re-tellings! Even if this one is almost 30 years old. I can’t help but wonder if that would make it better or worse than today’s re-tellings. I suppose it would depend.
KEEP. I actually forgot about this book. I want to read this. 😛
GO. Another book I’m pretty sure I added to make me seem more worldly. Dear 2012 Me, Please stop adding books you think will make you seem “cooler”.
KEEP. I think it would be an interesting read. Also, I love Tosca Lee.
GO. It sounds weird, which is why I added it, but after reading some of the reviews it sounds WEIRD. Like, more creepy weird. I don’t do horror.
Okay, y’all this took me down to 1,060 books. It helped a little! I might continue to go through a few more pages and delete a few! This meme is kind of refreshing! It’s kinda like Mari Kondo-ing your TBR.
