    I´m sorry you didn´t like Red Queen. For me it was really good, especially the plot twist at the end. But I gave up on the Vampire Academy as well, I just… didn´t feel like finishing the series after the second book. 😀
    By the way I kinda agree with you on the dystopian genre. I love The Hunger games and Under the Never Sky but except that there´s nothing more. I feel like many novels in dystopian genre were a lot alike and they didn´t surprise me. Well, except the Red Queen. But even that copies the standard form where the government is bad and there is rebellion and so on. I like fantasy more, because the author can come up with anything. But that´s just my opinion. 🙂
    Thanks for writing this tag, it was lovely and I had fun reading it 🙂

    Completely agree on you with the Luxe series. I honestly couldn’t finish the first book. Don’t understand the hype for Colleen Hoover either. 🙁 I really like Chaol, but Dorian is also great:D

    FINALLY SOMEONE WHO LIKED SHIVER. everyone hates it on booktube and the blogosphere and i’m just sitting in my corner waiting for someone to enthuse me on why the book is pretty good.
    i feel like dystopians are also loosing their touch for me, too! i wasn’t a fan of the hunger games, divergent was amazing, but the rest of the series wasn’t in my opinion. i just really don’t find dystopians that pleasing or really fulfilling my expectations because they are so predictable.
    i do want to read twilight, on tumblr there are some really deep analytical aspects of it and i’m very much intrigued.
    i loved the unpopular opinions book tag idea. a lot of people get talked down because of not liking or liking a certain book. this was a great post, xandra!

    Do NOT read Soundless. It’s not worth it, trust me. And I didn’t really love Red Queen either, but as for the Grisha trilogy, while my ship did sink, my heart broke in that epilogue. Leigh Bardugo kills me with that epilogue every time.

    AFJDKLAFDS I LOVE SHIVER TOOOO!. So. so. much. I read it several years ago but I’m rereading it now and loving every moment. Sam.<3 ALSO COLE. <333 *ahem* And I&#039m the same with Red Queen! IT was just…mediocre? I felt like it was pulling bits and pieces from a ton of other YA books and just ended up feeling really recycled.

    ALSO 1000% AGREEMENT ON THE GRISHA. I cried. I really honestly thought it would be the darling Nikolai but but but … ALINA DIDN&#039T DESERVE HIM ANYWAY. *hugs the darling Nikolai* Tbh, it ruined the finale for me. xD

    OMG I agree 1000000% with you! I find Red Queen is to overhyped, I mean Red Queen is basically every popular Dystopian books merge into a book. AND THE GRISHA TRILOGY??? I REALLY SHIP ALINA WITH EITHER THE DARKLING OR NIKOLAI but nope she ends up with Mal and the Darkling met his sad and painful ending and Nikolai ends up alone?? (pls no, but I really love his depiction in the epilogue) I didn’t feel really happy with the ending because of that. I WANT A BOOK ABOUT THE DARKLING AND NIKOLAI. I CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF THEM!!! (okay I’m calm now) And yes I also really love the Infernal Devices love triangle because well, even though Will and Jem both love Tessa, they love each other more that they’re willing to give their life for each other (Heronstairs<333)

    I also don’t really like Vampire Academy.. The first book was mweh and I’ve put the second down until I’m in the mood again. Perhaps never :’)
    Grisha I AM STILL SO MAD DAMN THAT ENDING. *stabstabstab* How could she ever pick THAT guy?

    I was totally with you about Mal. I was all there. I was nodding furiously and excitedly and I was so ready to rant about how much I dislike him. Then I saw them. Your words about Chaol Westfall, precious Chaol Westfall. I’ll admit that he’s made some (plenty) of mistakes and he’s certainly not the cinnamon roll everyone makes him out to be but MY LORD I love that guy.

    I LOVE SHIVER THOUGH. SO MUCH. I READ IT A LOT OF YEARS AGO AND THEN I READ IT OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND I LOVE IT. I don’t want to reread it incase my opinion changes SO I AM FINE WITH LOVING IT AND DISREGARDING ANYONE ELSES OPINION.
