The Orangutan Librarian created this wonderful tag and I just had to do it! It was really interesting and difficult to come up with answers for this one!
#notall cover changes – a cover change you liked
This is my go to answer for this question. This cover change was so necessary! I had heard so many great things about Anna and the French Kiss but avoided picking it up solely because of the cheesy cover! I am sure that I am not alone in that. The new cover is a huge improvement.
#notall adaptations – an adaptation you love more than the book
The Notebook! I love that movie but it is one of Nicholas Sparks worse books in my opinion!
#notall tropes – a trope you’ll never tire of seeing
I actually wrote a whole post about this! I think hate to love is my favourite trope. I just love reading about all of that tension. I think that Pride and Prejudice is a good example of this, and one of the reasons that I love it so much.
#notall instalove – you instaloved this instacouple
There are not a lot of instalove stories that I love but you could argue that one of my all time favourite books has instalove- I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson! Both couples have instalove and I absolutely adore both relationships!
#notall love triangles – an example of love triangle done well
Hmmm… Maybe The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han? I had such a love/hate relationship with that love triangle!
#notall parents – bookish parents that, you know, PARENT!
Apparently I have Jenny Han on my mind! Lara Jean’s dad in To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is one of my favourite book dads! Him and Atticus Fitch!
#notall villains – a villain you love
Jackal from The Blood of Eden series! He will always be my favourite villain!
#notall chosen ones – a chosen one you can get behind
Such an obvious answer but Harry Potter!
#notall hyped books – a book that lived up to the acclaim
Most recently I would have to say Warcross and just Marie Lu’s writing in general. I have heard people talk about her for years and now I understand why!
#notall *insert favourite genre* – a book you’re not keen on from your favourite genre
I am a huge fan of historical fiction, especially if it centers around WWII. I was so intrigued by The Zookeeper’s Wife and sadly I was really let down. The book was less about WWII and more about the biology and behaviour of animals. It was not what I was expecting or looking for.
#notall *insert least favourite genre* – a book you liked from a genre you don’t often read
I am not a fan of horror/thriller novels but I really enjoyed Night Film! It kept me on the edge of my seat and was not like anything that I have ever read before.
If you liked this tag, please do it! I would love to read your answers!
