Let's Discuss: Unpopular Opinions

Unpopular Opinion: 

I don't get the hype of RH books. 

For those of you who are wondering what a RH book is RH stands for Reverse Harem.  So instead of there being a soulmate, true mate, mate, one love, forever love there area a bunch of loves.  All of which are completely madly in love with the one girl.  Hence the reverse part of the harem.

I understand to some extent that this is a great way to get rid of the stereotyping of a gal with multiple boyfriends being well labeled something unsavory.  Labeling shouldn't happen unless it is from Tiffany's and even then the Blue box gives it away.

It is also a good way to get rid of the LOVE TRIANGLE that people have been back lashing against since TEAM EDWARD vs. TEAM JACOB.  Although, I don't really mind a love triangle as long as it is written in such a way that I also go back and forth. 

Academy books or boarding school books have been a love of mine for years.  There is currently a plethora of them being published right now in the fantasy/sci-fi realm, which would normally make my book dragon's heart leap for joy.  I look it up on Goodreads or Amazon about to one click and there it is blurb slow burn, mild burn RH. Or even worse it's not in the blurb and as I am about to one-click a review pops up with this is RH.  I mean seriously thanks for saving my kindle. 

Why don't I like it?

No clue, other than the two that I tried by different trusted author was a no go for me.  I think it boils down to I would not be okay with my loving having a harem so why should my partner be okay with me having one. So there you have it, my unpopular opinion, I have no interest in reading Reverse Harem books or series.  Again fated mates, soul mates, true love sign me up!


  1. LOL, yes I did this is trending and while it's not my thing (relationships are complicated enough) there are many romances out there from monster porn to shifters..I love the diversity and that we can find a romance from clean to outrageous.

  2. Yeah, I don’t mind love triangles on occasion as long as they are done well. I kind of have love/hate relationship with them. But having multiple romantic interests for the sake of “heavy lovin’” doesn’t work for me either. I avoid harem books in general for that matter.

    1. I pretty much figured you and I would be on the same page with this. This has been heavy on my mind lately due to there being such a rise in them. I have seen no discussions on people avoiding them or hating them. So I had to throw my two cents in.
