Hi, lovelies! I think the concept of tropes is such an interesting one. There are things that have been used in stories so many times that they’ve become a thing. I didn’t really think that I had any favorite tropes, but the more I read, the more I realize that I absolutely do have some favorites. Now, some are general story ones and some are specific events in stories. Let’s get to it!
Friends to lovers
This is my personal favorite trope in romance. I’m pretty sure it’s because it’s my real life trope with my husband.
Only one bed
The tension that stems from the ‘only one bed’ trope is just unlike anything else.
As a teen, I was a big supporter of doing things I wasn’t supposed to do, so the whole people loving people they ‘shouldn’t’ because it creates such excellent drama and conflict.
Second chance romance
This is another real life trope for me. So, it totally checks out why I love this one.
I think this one is another great one just because of the tension that’s created from the trope. I love to see characters that are trapped somewhere together that they don’t want to be.
The chosen one trope was really popular and still is, but I love me some reluctant heroes. A main characters that doesn’t particularly want to save the whatever, but they will because they’re the hero.
This one is incredibly popular. I like it, too. It’s fun watching a couple that’s totally in denial about their feelings for one another slowly realize they do actually love each other.
These are some of my favorite tropes. What are some of yours?
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
