This week is Top Ten Unpopular Opinions related to books. This is kinda fun although it requires a little more thought than I usually put into these (okay, not really). But it actually turned out fun to put together.
I don't know if this is an unpopular opinion or not, but I am not a fan of Daenerys. As a character she's fine, but the decisions she makes... have made me pretty skeptical of her. And this is from a book perspective. The way the show ended, and the creative choices they made, of course add a whole new wrinkle to that.
I tried this series and only got a hundred or so pages in to the first one, and I was kinda... bored? And I know these books are well- loved, so I feel like a bad person for not liking them. :) But... I may try down the road again?
This is another book that I DNF'd, and I'm not sure why. I should love this, based on all I've heard, but again I was kinda bored? This one I definitely want to try again though.
Okay I know I'm alone on this, but I prefer Luke/ Leia to Han/ Leia. Heresy, I know! But I have my reasons. Also this. And before you go ewww, keep in mind... the Lannisters do it! Okay maybe not a good reason. But they don't have to be siblings.
According to Gary Kurtz, producer of The Empire Strikes Back, the Other - Luke's sister - was intended to be a major character in the original Sequel Trilogy. "His sister was someone else way over on the other side of the galaxy," he explained in an interview with Film Threat, "and she wasn’t going to show up until the next episode."
The simplest and most elegant solution was to reveal that Leia was the Other Yoda had been speaking of, a twin sister Luke had never known about. This also neatly resolved the loose "love triangle" story Lucas had never seemed heavily invested in; with Luke out of the picture as a rival, it made sense for Han and Leia to wind up together. And so one of the greatest twists in movie history was decided.
I'm not sure if I really feel the Kat/ Peeta ship? But not really Gale either? Too bad Finnick wasn't, like, available.
I like this series but Dalton doesn't really work for me. He seems to be mainly a vehicle to drop f-bombs every second.
I don't hate Bellamy and Echo together. That might be enough to get me lynched in certain quarters on Twitter- and don't get me wrong, I'm Bellarke all the way- but until they get there, I'm just saying. I mean it was sorta coming ever since they were both in a cage in season two? And yes I'm talking the show here.
You'd think I'd be all over this but I was bored to tears.
Well that's all I got!
