Hello Friends! I am thinking about making this chit chat thing a regular weekly thing. Though, I am still thinking about it. What do you think?
Today I want to tell you a little secret. I little confession. I have seen BookTubers do unpopular opinion videos and, well, this is my unpopular opinion. I am not doing a disclaimer…if you disagree with me, let me know in the comments. I would love to have a discussion with you. If you get offended…it’s not my fault you are so sensitive.
So, this unpopular opinion/confession is that I seriously dislike and almost hate John Green books and movies. I hate how popular they are and how EVERYONE seems to love everything about them.
I have read Looking for Alaska and honestly…I could have done without reading it. At the time I thought it was great! Then I let it sit on the back of my shelf for a little while, I let my mind stew on it a bit, and I hate it. I don’t like it one bit. Will I see the movie? Maybe if I can see it for free. Just to compare it to what I read at least.
I went to theaters to see The Fault in Our Stars with my cousin. I didn’t like it. I felt it was a waste of my money. I disliked it so much that I couldn’t even bring myself to TRY and read the book. I’m not going to do it. Yeah, it’s sad. Yeah, there is a cute love story…I guess. But it was horrible.
A few weeks ago I watched Paper Towns. I was so looking forward to this movie. I even bought the book, because I was GOING to read the book before I saw the movie. Well, the book just collected dust on my shelf and I gave up and just watched the movie. Sorely disappointed! I thought it was so boring and just unrealistic to be honest. I will never watch it again, and I will never read the book.
I am done with John Green. I will not read any more of his books that are out now. I will not bother to find out when he has new books coming out. I just don’t like his writing or his stories. Of course, if you have been around long enough you know that I do not like contemporary novels, which is what John Green writes. I have read a few contemporary novels that I liked, but John Green does not belong on that list.
It also annoys me that the ending of his books are so sad. If you have read them or seen the movies, you know what I am talking about. I don’t mind a book that doesn’t have a happy ending. I am okay with that, really, but all of his books??
Anyways, I do not like him, Sam-I-am. I do not like John Green the ham.
Sorry…I am not insulting anyone, I just had Dr. Seuss pop into my head for a minute.
