#SixforSunday is hosted by Steph at A Little But A Lot. Every week there is a bookish-themed prompt to inspire 6 choices.
Today’s topic is Tropes You Hate. For a list of upcoming topics, check out the bottom of this post. 🙂
I mentioned last week, that it was absolutely possible for me to enjoy all tropes. It just usually takes some fantastic writing skills to make me love any of these ~
The I have something to tell you that you don’t like so I’m going to hide it trope ~
I just recently read Marrying Winterborne, so it came to mind quickly. While I did enjoy the book, I was still thoroughly annoyed with Helen when she wouldn’t just open her mouth and tell Winterborne what she was hiding.
The Love Triangle Trope
This one is really a surprise for me. It’s a surprise in that it’s new for me. I used to not mind them at all, but now I can see that my tastes have changed. While I loved Stone Cold Touch, I hated that Layla was giving Zayne the time of day when it should have been all about Roth. And while I was reading this I noticed that this feeling wasn’t brand new and exclusive to this book. Then I was reading a blurb on another book I’ve been looking forward to and found myself moaning aloud when I saw that there was a love triangle in it. Obviously I’ll continue to torture myself and pick up these books, but the whole triangle is seriously bothering me now.
The I’m Attracted to the Jerk Trope
While I definitely enjoyed this book overall, I was for sure annoyed with her in the beginning when she was so attracted to her boss, who came of as a complete alphahole in the beginning. How can you be attracted to that?
The Let’s Start Out This Relationship With a Lie Trope
While I was fortunately able to enjoy this story, I never enjoyed the fact the Esme felt the need to be so deceitful.
The This Guy is Just Too Beautiful to Look At Trope
Now I will always have feelings of great nostalgia with Twilight, but I have always thought the whole thing where she went stupid because he was so beautiful was ridiculous!!
The Let’s Wrap Up the Whole Conflict in One Sentence Trope
I am not going to include any picks for this one because I feel like that could be a major spoiler.
