Top 10 Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday – Unpopular Bookish Opinions

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that originated on The Broke and The Bookish. As of January 2018, it moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Unpopular Bookish Opinions.


I prefer e-books to paper. I love that my Kindle always has hundreds of books on it.

No Fantasy for Me

I have no interest in the fantasy genre. I used to love it, but I’ve completely lost interest in it.

I’m a muggle who hasn’t (or will) read Harry Potter

I will not, nor have I ever, read the Harry Potter series. I also haven’t seen the movies.

Books are always better than the movies that come later

There are a few exceptions (Jurassic Park and Hunger Games).

First person, please

I don’t prefer books written in the third person. I find it much easier to connect with a character when the book is told from their point of view.

The shorter, the better

I don’t care for books longer than 400 pages. As a romance reader, it just doesn’t need to be that long to be a good story.

My son is YA age, so that genre is out

I have a hard time reading YA and college age stories now that my son is that age. I used to really love them.

No virgins

If I see the word virgin either in the summary or a review on goodreads, I’m out. Not a trope I’m interested in reading.

No shirt, I’m interested!

Much to my children’s dismay, I am attracted to covers with shirtless men.

  1. I think I’m slowly losing interest in YA contemporaries though I don’t have kids yet… but YA fantasy is still my favorite genre and I hope I continue loving them…
    But the best part of your post which I loved is that I prefer ebooks too… Don’t know what I’ll do without my Kindle 😊😊

  2. I’ve tried and tried with fantasy but I just can’t. There have been a couple of rare exceptions but I finally had to quit forcing and realize the genre wasn’t for me. Contemporary is my genre and that’s that. Totally agree with first person POV. I definitely prefer that over 3rd.

  3. I like ‘Harry Potter’ (books and movies) but I never got past the fourth book. I guess I just got distracted for a while and there’s so many other books to read out there. I’m not all that into the fantasy genre either (I enjoy them occasionally, but I usually prefer novels with realistic storylines) and I have to be REALLY into a book that’s more than 350 pages long. Great list! 🙂
