Top Ten Tuesday #24 | Favorite Tropes

Hey guys, here are some of my favourite tropes when reading books (or even watching movies) I also decided to be extra, and introduce a book with each trope.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. Thank you for the prompts!



Most obvious one that I love endlessly: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

Secret Pen Pals

Ok, so this is a typical one, but who doesn’t love typical?


I love seeing this in books as well as movies **cough cough Love, Rosie**

Taxonomy of Love by Rachael Allen is one that I can think of at the top of my head.

Slow Burn

Inej and Kaz in Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. It hurts, but it’s so goood.

Love triangles

If done well. I repeat, IF DONE WELL. The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare.

Secret lifelong love

My eyes just welt up with tears. Because that’s just how much I love them. Or maybe it’s just the aftermath of reading Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens.

Fairy tale retelling

ANY FAIRY TALE RETELLING. But I have a bias towards Alice in Wonderland retellings. I mean, I started my blog because of reading Heartless by Marissa Meyer.

Villain Redemption

There are always those antagonists that are not quite antagonists and you really want to find a reason to like them (or not — it depends on the reader amirite 🙃). Then the author gives them the perfect moment of glory, like *ahem* in Harry Potter by JK Rowling.

Morally Grey Characters

Lol, I don’t know if this is a trope, but morally grey characters are who makes books so interesting, like every other character in Vicious by VE Schwab.



What are your favourite tropes? I’d love to know!
