Top 5 Tuesday!
My favorite tropes, and ones that I’d love to see more of. The idea of ‘tropes’ has always been a tricky one for me. I think all books follow similar plot lines. There are only so many out there, and the specifics are what makes each book better or worse.
These are the 5 that I find I usually like.

Enemies/Nemesis to Lovers!
Enemies to Lovers is a popular trope, and it’s obvious why. It’s fantastic when it comes to intensity and anticipation. It’s a trope guaranteed to keep me on the edge of my seat, and usually crack me up when the two angry enemies start realizing there’s a deep attraction underneath. Scrumptious!Scheduled October 5th
Oblivious Romantic Interest
I’d never have thought this trope would be one I’d love, but I do! Every time I read a romance novel and the main character can’t see the attraction staring him in the face, and it always cracks me up! I would have thought I’d find it annoying, but instead I find it irresistible.
There’s nothing that gets me going in a romance novel like a grumpy guy. I love when the hero is all kinds of grouchy, but softens for the love interest. It always makes mushy inside. I’m such a sucker for this trope, I married my own grumpy guy! Every time he says something sweet, I’m putty in his hands.
Falling in Love through Text
There’s something about reading two characters falling in love through letters that gets me right in the heart. I think maybe it feels more honest, less physical, when they haven’t even seen what the other looks like. If it’s an anonymous romance, I’m completely invested!
Is there anything more interesting to read then an unexpected redemption arc? Someone you knew was evil, but somehow it turned out they were a good person the whole time? There were just extenuating circumstances, or a change of heart, then they end up becoming your favorite character? I definitely love this trope.
