    In an opinion essay, you don’t really need to say “I” because it’s obvious that it’s your opinion. Don’t say “I think that the book is worth reading…” but just say “The book is worth reading.” However, if you’re going to say certain things, like “At first, I was unsure if I liked the book…” You can use ‘I’ because you’re talking about your specific experience.
