To explain a little about what this post will be about, I’m taking the intro I did for the last one: In every romance book you read there are tropes or archetypes. You can also see them in shows, movies, plays, etc. Romantic tropes are everywhere, and they are fabulous. I adore them and I always tend to find my favorite ones in romance books so I can enjoy them more. I decided to do a sort of Trope Tuesday piece where I will be talking about many tropes and recommend you all some of my favorites that fit.
What is a trope? Urban Dictionary explains it best I think: “Despite the erroneous definitions already published here, trope on the interwebs really refers to an often overused plot device. It can also be described as another variation on the same theme. TV shows, movies, comics, games, anime’, & books are full of tropes & many rabid fan-sites now name & track said tropes with a self-explanatory title for each one.” We can name a few: accidental pregnancy, best friends to lovers, sibling’s best friend, marriage of convenience, and so many more for sure. Your favorite couples? They probably got a trope too! It’s always so nice to realize or find out your favorite romance trope and keep searching for books with the same theme.
I am still trying my hardest to decide when should I get a tattoo. Because I totally love how they look on people and I want one of my own! So whenever I read about characters in romance having them I’m like oh my god that’s so amazing and I bet they look great IMAGINE THEM AS REAL LIFE PEOPLE. *chef kiss* I absolutely adore the role they take in the novel and sometimes there is a big part they’re portraying in the story.
I also love book covers. And we get beautiful covers that feature models with tattoos to represent the characters inside the book! Yes to this always. I’m always ready to see more and more covers like that.
