Amanda’s Top Ten Tuesday – Tropes

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week we talk about our top ten with a different topic provided by Jana. This week’s topic is top ten – Favorite tropes


Childhood friends to lovers (probably because I married my best friend)

Enemies to lovers (who doesn’t love the tension and drama?!)

Unlikely hero/chosen one (Harry Potter anyone?)

Mixed/complicated families (Give me all the step-parents, adoptive siblings, etc.)

Small towns with big secrets (I love books set in small towns)

Artificial Intelligence as characters (terrifying but somehow also exhilarating)

Secret identities (hidden royals, missing Shadowhunter family lines, give it all to me)

This is all I could come up with for this week’s topic. Tropes are something I never really paid attention to until becoming a part of the Twitter book community. What tropes do you love?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
