Combining #SoaringScores #DarcysLetter with a Litsyversary shoutout to @shadowspeak17 🥳🥳🥳 congrats #UnpopularOpinionGiveaway

1. Most serious readers dislike the idea of modern adaptations of the classics but for me, I PREFER them to the originals. I find the Re-tellings more approachable and both more relatable & enjoyable 😉#BookishUnpopularOpinion
2. 3 books on my radar are The Dearly Beloved, The Only Plane in the Sky & By The Book 👇🏼

Cinfhen Bonus Entries @shadowspeak17 I Disliked The Alchemist ( I thought it was WEAK) and I really liked this book, which was VERY POLARIZING 👉🏾 2w
Cinfhen And I‘m tagging @AmyG who might want to enter the #UnpopularOpinionGiveaway xx check out @shadowspeak17 page for all the details 💖💖💖 2w
AmyG Thank you so much for the tag! 😘 2w
CrowCAH I like to stick with the originals. But some adaptations are really nice. 2w
shadowspeak17 I don‘t think I‘ve ever read a retelling of a classic before. 🤔 I‘m not totally opposed to the idea, but I do think I‘d rather read the original. Thanks for entering! 2w

Congrats @shadowspeak17 on your #literversary and thank you for hosting this awesome #unpopularopiniongiveaway

1. My opinion is that I think fan fiction can be just as good as a book.
2. Guess Who (Chris McGeorge), Watching You (Lisa Jewel), and #MurderTrending (Gretchen McNeill)

BONUS
1. I don‘t like To Kill A Mockingbird, while most people love it and I like Twilight, while most people dislike it.
2. @ChasingOm

shadowspeak17 My boyfriend and one of my friends don‘t like To Kill a Mockingbird either, but it‘s one of my favorite books. Sigh 😔😂 Thanks for entering! 2w
AsYouWish @shadowspeak17 I had to read it three school years in a row, so it sort of lost its appeal. I am thinking about retreading it without any of the pressures that school put on it. 2w
shadowspeak17 Wow, three years in a row! 😲 I honestly can‘t say I blame you for disliking it after that. My boyfriend has a similar idea about rereading it. He didn‘t have to read TKAM three years in a row or anything, but he did dislike most of the books he had to read in school because he was forced to read them. So he wants to try rereading it too to see if he‘ll like it better now that he‘s not being forced to read it. 2w

The Dante Club: A Novel | Matthew Pearl
post image

Bonus Round

1. A popular book in my hometown I despise is by a woman I know. She ridiculed & humiliated a teacher my kid loved who then quit teaching, in a so-called Christian memoir Sparkly Green Earrings.
2. I really enjoyed the tagged book—one I was sure Littens would like—but it has received 50% Litsy love. My mom (we share literary tastes) even bailed on it!

j.rye #stackadd I love unpopular opinions 3w
DefLeppard I LOVED this book and the sequel. To be honest I never go on opinions of others as we are all so different. I have everything Pearl has written. 😊 3w
DefLeppard Actually loved this so much I bought a copy for my sister's boyfriend as a Christmas gift as he enjoys thrillers so tried to get him into his work too! 😂 3w

ralexist I love this book too! I'm surprised sometimes at the books that aren't as well known or loved 🙂 3w
TheSpineView Thanks for the tag!😘 3w
Eggs Thanks for tagging me 👍🏼🤗 2w
GingerAntics This book has been on my wish list for a while. I looks good. How is someone going to attack a teacher in their freakin novel and make it obvious it‘s someone in real life? What a jerk. I wouldn‘t like that book either. 2w
shadowspeak17 Wow, that‘s messed up! 😧 Definitely a book I will not be reading. 2w
shadowspeak17 The tagged book sounds like something my boyfriend‘s mom would like. I‘ll have to keep it in mind while I‘m Christmas shopping this year. Thanks for entering! 😄 2w

Tombland | C. J. Sansom

1. I‘ve two in this category: Wolf Hall (Mantel) and The Poisonwood Bible (Kingsolver). I always struggle with which one I dislike the most. But I won‘t read either author again.
2. Tombland by CJ Sansom (photo from Amazon), Crucible by James Rollins, Relic by Douglas Preston
3. @shadowspeak17 #unpopularopiniongiveaway

Thanks for the opportunity and what a wonderful idea because it is so true.

1st things 1st, my unpopular opinion! It‘s UNPOPULAR, potential Litsy scorn would be well earned! But it‘s “re-reading is bad as life is too short and you‘ll die before you get your TBR pile polished off and new worthwhile books come out every week!” I understand for many rereading is a comfort but not for me! #unpopularopiniongiveaway @shadowspeak17 this is very generous and I‘m excited for the discussion. @SamTwedt for bonus entry.

andytbarnes I‘ve never been concise so I ran out of room 🙃. There are a zillion books to possibly throw in here but thinking of some recent ones I have yet to make time for: Max Porter‘s Lanny, Helen Oyeyemi‘s Gingerbread, and Jia Talentino‘s Trick Mirror: Reflections on Self-Delusion! 3w
TrishB I have only reread 4 books- I want to get to all the books do it‘s very rare for me. 3w
shadowspeak17 I am a rereader, but I definitely see your point. There are so many books to read! 😬 Thanks for entering! 2w
