People Are Sharing Their “Cancellable” Opinions About Books (31 Tweets)

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that whenever a subject is broached on Twitter, there is someone looking to get canceled for their terrible take. Frankly, it’s what the site is for now. If you’re a big reader, chances are you’ve formed an opinion about books that not all of your friends agree with. That is if you have any friends left. I don’t. I lost them all while posting my cancellable opinion on Ben & Jerry’s (there’s too much going on in those pints to enjoy the flavor! Tone it down, I say.)

This entire website is devoted to unpopular opinions on classic literature. We’ve roasted everyone from Danielle Steel to Shakespeare. Honestly, I thought no bad take on reading could shock me, but I found myself once again talking to my laptop screen, playing armchair psychologist to people with anime characters in their profile pics. Good Lord, I need a hobby.


Thankfully, my opinions aren’t nearly as cancellable as the ones below. Let’s take a look.

It all started here with @cursedhive asking people to share their “bad” book takes:

It turns out people have hills they’d like to die on when it comes to literature. From covers to opening lines to subjects readers just can’t tolerate, everyone has a take they know others will hate to hear.

Here are the most controversial takes about books according to Twitter:


1. Number one with a bullet. Not all books are alike in dignity.

3. Hear me out: what if some people are well-adjusted?

4. Damn. They said it all.

5. Yes. It would be nice to take a breather.




6. Strong disagree here, but I’ve heard this one before:

7. On a positive note…

8. Stop being a baby and read that book, dorks!

9. We need to redo The Goldfinch!

10. On the other hand, though…




11. The fact is: the blurbs don’t do enough because the blurb-ers didn’t read the books.

12. Judge not lest ye be judged.

13. Make your own reality.

14. Mark it up!

15. This seems extremely specific, but if you’re on the hunt for success in this field… apparently people agree with this hot take.




16. Wait… literally?

17. This made me laugh.

18. A hot take shared by all now, I guess.

19. Get out of here, “now a motion picture” covers!

20. Truth.




21. Plots matter.

22. Mine isn’t.

23. The ultimate take.

24. Now we’re getting somewhere.

25. Stop boring me, book I chose to read!




26. Hard pass.

27. Hell yeah.

28. RIP, my generation.

29. Give the people what they want!

30. Oh yeah? Well, guess what.

31. A nuanced opinion? Sir, this is Twitter.

There you have it. Every person has a different idea of what books should and should not be.

What’s your cancellable opinion about books?
