Hey guys, Tuesday has come around pretty fast, I feel like I have lost an entire week, but oh well lets get on with our topic for this weeks Top 5 Tuesday. If you don’t already know this meme was created by Shanah over at the BionicBookWorm, and each week we get a bookish topic to talk about. This weeks topic is top 5 tropes I’ve had enough of. I feel very strongly about all of these tropes and I will actually put down a book in the middle of reading it if these come up. Anyway lets get onto the tropes;
This is my most hated trope EVER! If this comes up in any of the books that I am reading I usually put it down straight away, it would have to be a series that I absolutely loved in order for me to stick it out and continue reading. I really don’t like this trope because it never really adds anything to the story line and is usually used just to continue the story in an easy way.
I absolutely hate books where the relationships are not developed, where the characters just fall in love at first sight and there is no substance behind it. I feel like it really is lazy and writing and that there should be effort put into why a relationship is formed. I really don’t know how I am expected to feel invested in a fictional relationship when it just starts out of nowhere.
Repeating the Same Day
This is one that I actually refuse to read because it just really annoys me. It just seems so boring to me to read about the same day over and over again and the protagonists just never seem to get anywhere. Also the plot lines of books that revolve around this trope just never interest me.
With this one I mean when the story finishes too neatly, such as having no consequences or when every character gets out unscathed. I mean for a story to feel real you have to have bad things happen at some point, and for me character deaths that are meaningful are so much better than everyone just somehow miraculously surviving. This is also when things are just too convenient in a story and just seems like lazy writing.
This one drives me absolutely crazy, I hate the feeling of reading a book from the perspective of someone who just does not know what is going on. I can see how it would be interesting as it adds mystery to a book but I hate it, even if this trope is in movies I can’t watch them. I just feel like I am going nuts as I see from their point of view.
Thank you for reading!
