Every now and then you have so spill the tea. Even if it’s about yourself. This post is all about my bookish confessions and unpopular opinions! I don’t think I have any extreme opinions, but I also hope I don’t end up on the stake, haha. I like the Lord of the Rings movies better than the books This is definitely one of the most unpopular opinions in my friend group.
