To explain a little about what this post will be about, every Trope Tuesday post starts with the same introduction. In every romance book you read there are tropes or archetypes you find inside its pages. You can also see them in shows, movies, plays, etc. Every type of entertainment and media. 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 even more. Trope Tuesday is a weekly column where I share books that I know people will enjoy with a specific central trope.
What is a trope? Urban Dictionary explains it best: “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. 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. So really? I’m just helping you find that new favorite book of yours. If ever you want a post on a trope I haven’t done yet, do drop me a tweet at @thebookvoyagers and let me know!
I know Halloween is already over, but it has been two days since then so!! I’m going to still recommend some fabulous reads you can read for that spooky vibe that only Halloween can give you.
Her Soul for Revenge by Harley Laroux
I fully believe that Harley Laroux is the perfect author to read during this season. All her books kinda match, so I say give them a go if you haven’t still picked them up. Her Soul for Revenge is her newest release and it’s all about demons and cults.
Juniper wants revenge on the cult who hurt her back when she was a teen. She is ready to come back to her hometown and destroy it all. But she needs help and it comes in the form of a sexy charming demon named Zane. So, yeah, she sells her soul to a demon for revenge. This book is bloody and murder-y! Please read TW before reading.
Skulls & Scares by Jo Henny Wolf
I recently found this book while on Twitter, so I am going to share the title so everyone gets it too. It sounds incredible!
Thea Miller sells 34 plastic skulls to the town’s new resident psychiatrist, but he accidentally also takes her mother’s life savings. She needs them ASAP so she decides to break into his house to steal them back. He obviously catches her but instead of getting angry, he proposes a deal: a chase through the woods. If she wins, she gets them all back. But Charles doesn’t like to play fair.
A Tale of Two Cities by Alexandra Warren
Now, let’s travel all the way to Vegas for this story. A Halloween-themed joint bachelor/bachelorette weekend in Vegas sounds amazing, right? Well, this is about to get hot too.
Savannah and Lincoln meet on this fun weekend and their attraction? Instant! But can they work it out even though they don’t live in the same city?
