Ten Unpopular Bookish Opinions

Top 10 Tuesday is a post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week's topic is Top Ten Unpopular Bookish Opinions.

  1. I don't like books about time travel. At all. I've never read one that I liked.
  2. I don't read books just so that I can claim diversity. I don't pick them based on author's race, character's race, etc. (I choose books based on which descriptions sound interesting to me.) Granted I will choose not to read a book based on the character's age range as I have my preferences there. *shrugs*
  3. I prefer to read on my phone or my kindle. Mostly because I can do that one handed. If I get any reading done during the day with the kids, it's a must to be one handed. Mostly, I tend to read at night on the couch while Husband is watching TV so I have a built in light.
  4. I no longer aim to have a room in my house as a dedicated library where I have shelves upon shelves of books. I've been striving to purge and become more of a minimalist (not completely all the way to a minimalist), so I'm only keeping physical copies of my absolute favorite books.
  5. I am uninterested in reading any LGBT books. Sorry, not sorry.
  6. I really hate when I read an author and love their clean books and then with each passing release they publish more and more sex scenes or increased description in these scenes. It's not necessary. I will love your books more without this included.
  7. Language. I hate it. There's nothing worse than loving the story line of a book but feeling like I'm limited in who I might want to recommend the book to due to language.
  8. I love audiobooks. I wish I could listen to them more.
  9. More often than not, I'm glad my favorite series has ended. I'm always torn when an author goes back to a series I love but considered closed.
  10. Frankly, I don't even want to read a book if there's not a love story in it. Nope not interested. I love love. I love love stories. This is what I read for. While other books might be amazing, I just don't have the time if the story isn't mostly driven by romance.

What are your unpopular bookish opinions? Let me know!


  1. I feel like we have so many things in common. xD I can relate to so many of these. I prefer to read on my Kindle, too (phone's screen is too small for me). Number six, you're totally looking at the Sarah J. Maas books, aren't you? Haha. I've never read them, but I've heard that complaint a lot with that series. Love your unpopular opinions. ;)

  2. I feel the same about books featuring romance! I very, very rarely read books that don't feature love. It really makes a story for me.

  3. Ahh two points I disagree with is I love... LOVE books about time travel. I'm also not a fan of romance :) My unpopular opinion is I hate prequels in the middle of a series and will skip and/or not read them at all.

  4. Interesting stuff here... Thanks!

  5. I'm a minimalist, too! Welcome to the club. :)

    Nice ones. There are some on here I never gave much thought to. Some I don't quite agree with...like the library room! I still strive to have one of those since reading's about all I have going on in my life. Lol.

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  7. I don't agree with all your opinions, but I can see where you're coming from---everyone has a right to make their own choices about what they read! I definitely agree about #6, though---especially when it comes to YA series. It really bugs me when a YA series gets more and more graphic about things like sex---because a kid might already be reading that series and hooked on the story/characters and not be expecting that shift.
