GR = Goodreads. SG = The Storygraph. Oh, and I, uh, had to omit the synopses otherwise this would be more like a short story😅
1. FAKE DATING
Am I, myself, personally, super interested in dating and relationships? Meh. If I were given the opportunity to be in a fake relationship, would I? Absolutely. I love reading this trope because I’ve read it so many times in fanfics that the timeline and plot is easy and nice to read.
Haven’t read it, but a lot of friends say it’s really good. And also it’s exactly what I like to see!! That oh I think I’m falling for the other person and it can’t be…
This looks so cute! Really wanna get to this soon! Please make me read this soon!
The Ex Talk by Rachel Lynn Solomon (GR/SG) – I‘m not a huge fan of romance. I’m good with romance if it’s coupled with something else – fantasy, paranormal, etc. I’m also fine if it reads like fanfiction – which hopefully this looks like it.
2. FOUND FAMILY
Found family has always been and will always be one of my favourite tropes. I’m big on family and also friends being part of your family.
This isn’t a long book so I should be able to get through it pretty quickly… Whenever I get to it 😄
I love this book. Absolutely one of my favourites! Definitely recommend if you, like me, like codependent relationships!
3. ENSEMBLE CAST
There’s just something I love about reading synopses and seeing the words squad/team/group or the ever amazing ‘a thief, a criminal, etc’ thing aka The Breakfast Club schtick. I love seeing these books and can’t get enough of them!
Okay so, magic is outlawed and a 17 year old has to lead 8 criminals and kill an ancient evil. That’s all I need to know 😌
FOUR MAGICAL OUTSIDERS MUST WORK TOGETHER TO SAVE THEIR HOME AND WORLD BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE.
4. ENEMIES -TO-LOVERS
This includes rivals to lovers and also ‘I don’t hate you, just dislike you’ – is that maybe indifference-to-lovers? Whatever, I’m here for it.
Look, I KNOW the source material, so therefore I don’t want to read this, but also I do want to read this – do you see my dilemma?
Obviously, right! It’s a staple fantasy trope and I’ll gladly drink them all up! And speaking of drinkin… Here’s a book I really want to read (but now have to WAIT??)
I spent time on this one because I wanted to find books that I haven’t shown before (and also they’re all unread 😂 except for Chameleon Moon).
What are some tropes that you’ve seen a hundred times before but will gladly see again? Come give them to me and let’s gush over them!
