The Tropes Book Tag

I thought it would be fun to do a bookish tag today! I found The Tropes Book Tag over at Crowing About Books, be sure to show Jess some love! πŸ’–

Who doesn’t love a good bookish trope?? What are your favorites and least favorites? My favorite is enemies to lovers, and my least favorite is insta love!

Hopelessly Devoted : Name two characters from separate series that you ship

I think Aelin from the Throne of Glass series and Mia from the Nevernight series would be wonderful together. They are both incredibly strong and also independent and I think they could rule well together.


Damsel in Distress : Name a female MC who didn’t need a man to complete her

Veronyka from Crown of Feathers! She is so strong and independent, she never had to rely on a man to get her where she wanted to go. I loved this book so much, go read it.


Love at first sight : Name your OTP

Even though it will be forever and a day before the next book comes out, my OTP will forever be Nessian πŸ™ƒ I love Nesta and Cassian so much (especially Cassian WOOO he is perfection) and ughh god now I want to reread the series AGAIN.


Mental Illness as a Quirk : Name a book that represented mental illness well

Eliza and Her Monsters! This was the first book I got from Owlcrate and I read it immediately and absolutely loved it. I connected so well to this book because like me Eliza has anxiety, she struggles to make friends and attend social situations much like myself. Just, this book is so good. I highly recommend it. It was a 5 star read for me!


Chosen One : Name a MC that did (or almost did) ruin a series for you

Honestly, Scarlet from Caraval. The first time I read the series I found her incredibly annoying and very one dimensional. Still do actually, but because it is such a wonderful book I have forgiven how terrible of a character she is.


Friends to Lovers : Name a duo that went from friendship goals to relationship goals

Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley. Book version that is, not movie version. Harry and Ginny were 100% more compatible in the books.


Amnesia : Name a book you would forget for one reason or another

Absolutely Batman : Nightwalker. Hate that book with a fiery passion and it ruined the entire series for me. I can’t even take an updated photo because I sold book as quickly as possible, I didn’t even want it on my shelves.


Bad Boys : Name your favorite villain

The Darkling. No contest. I don’t even know why, I thought the Grisha trilogy was sub par at best because I barely liked the main character Aline and I downright hated her man friend Mal. But the Darkling was the trilogies saving grace, I wish I could have an entire trilogy surrounding him πŸ–€

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Missing Parents or Adults : Name a book that could have benefited from a bit of parental guidance or adult supervision

Probably the Six of Crows duology. Maybe none of them would have turned to a life of crime had any parents or adults been even remotely interested in them.

  1. My least favorite trope is also insta-love!! And i definitely agree with the fact that six of crows couldn’t have happened if the dregs had any parents/adults present in their lives. It resulted in a an absolutely thrilling heist book with to die for character arcs, thoughπŸ˜‚ I’m kinda not mad

  2. Totally stealing this tag! Instalove and love triangles are my two least favourite tropes. I’m also on the fence with multiple perspectives… I think when it’s done well, in the right book, it’s a great technique – but it’s gotten sooo overused!!

  3. Thanks for linking back! πŸ™‚ I loved Eliza and Her Monsters too, especially the anxiety rep! Also, the Darkling is such a great villain and was almost my choice. “Make me your villain.” CHILLS. The Dregs definitely need some parental supervision, especially as Colm Fahey came in and turned all the Dregs into the teenagers they are πŸ˜‚

    1. Eliza and Her Monsters helped me get into reading! The Darkling is SUCH an incredible villain, he just has so many layers and is so dimensional as a character. I actually really need to reread all of the Grisha books 😬

      1. I just reread the Grishaverse for King of Scars (well, I read the Grisha trilogy for the first time) so meeting the Darkling when I’ve heard so much about him was so fun.


      2. Did you love him as much as everyone else seems to? He is just such a perfect villain πŸ™ƒ he is so dimensional and I don’t see him as just an evil character, he is very morally gray. He does the wrong things but for what he thinks are the right reasons. I love it.

      3. I do love him! He’s screwed up and yes, very much on the dark side of morally grey, but he’s sooo well written


  4. First, I am so doing this tag!

    I hate Insta- love/ love at first sight! I love Cassian and I am digging on Nessian! Can’t wait for the next book!!
    And I love The Darkling, I feel the same as you feel about the Grisha trilogy but I read the trilogy just because of my love for the Darkling!!


  5. Oh my gosh, I’m obsessed with the enemies-to-lovers trope πŸ˜‚ Have you read The Illuminae Files trilogy? SOOOO MUCH ENEMIES-TO-LOVERS AWESOMENESS.

    I’m glad to see Eliza & Her Monsters highly recommended again – I’m going to have to get my hands on it ASAP!

    I also couldn’t stand Scarlet in Caraval. Yeesh, girl, why are you so annoying? πŸ™ƒ

    Awesome post! πŸ˜€


    1. YESSSSSS The Illuminae Files are my FAVORITE Science Fiction books, and Jay Kristoff is one of my favorite authors!

      Eliza and Her Monsters was so good, I should actually reread it! And I’m so happy to know I’m not alone in being annoyed by Scarlet!
