A few weeks ago I wrote a post talking about 5 tropes that I was tired of. Now I decided to the opposite (with a little twist). Today I’m going to talk about tropes that are underrated, and need to see more of.
1) Change of Heart
I love this type of romance, because it’s so cute! It’s so amusing to see our hero and heroine go from hating each other guts, to falling in love. The journey is usually filled with so much laughs, and cute scenes!
I really haven’t seen or read too many books revolving around this trope. I heard When Dimple Met Rishi, but like most hyped books I haven’t gotten around to read it yet. Do you guys have any recs with this trope?
2.) Villanoius Crush
This would be a such a cool, and exciting romance story if a villain, and a hero fell in love. But in the world they are it’s like very shameful, and then they have a child, and OMG I think I have good book idea right now…
But seriously, it would be awesome to see this in a YA fantasy novel/series. I only heard of these in like fan-fictions.
3.) Healthy Sibling Relationships
Name at least 5 or more books (that are YA) that have a super goals worthy sibling relationship.
This trope is so under-used, and barely visible in the bookish community. But why? I honestly don’t know, because it’s not even that hard to write about. It’s basically a brother or sister who is supportive to our protagonist. I have seen so many books with so many healthy friend relationships, it’s time for siblings to steal the limelight. 🙊
4.) Characters That Have a Personality
Have you ever read a book in which the plot is super amazing, and awesome, but then you realize you know nothing about the character?
I think it happened to me one to many times. That’s why characters that have an interest, or a personality are super important when it comes to a story. Lately, I think authors are working on this. I can never forget the PJO series because of their unique characters.
I have been on hiatus lately because So what do you think of my list? What tropes do you want to see more of in books? And what tropes would you want to see less? Do you agree with my list? Do you disagree?
