Created by and with thanks to That Artsy Reader! I cannot tell you how excited I am for this week’s theme, because I LOVE a good trope–so rather than focus on one, I went with five. Recommendations for any of these tropes welcome!
1. Second Chance Romance
(like in Second First Impressions by Sally Thorne)
I haven’t actually read this one yet, but doesn’t the title give the hint of the trope? Second chance romance is a trope I’ve only recently gotten into–largely because I discovered I’d actually been writing one for three years, to my surprise–so recommendations are welcome!
2. Forced Proximity
(like in The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren)
Forced proximity is especially excellent if it’s paired with enemies to lovers–both of which The Unhoneymooners does to perfection!
3. Grumpy x Sunshine
(like in The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood)
It’s strange, because if you’d asked me about this trope, I’d have thought I would’ve hated the cliché of it–but turns out I am a big old sucker for it. Goes to show, what do I know?
4. Fake Dating
(like in To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han)
This trope, on the other hand, I have always adored. I don’t care what the set-up is; if this trope is included, I will read it, and almost certainly love it.
5. Enemies to Lovers
(like in Beach Read by Emily Henry)
I love all the previous tropes… But I love this one the most, and I’m not even sorry.
What’s your favourite trope–in romance or otherwise?
