Let’s talk about anything bookish!
It’s Monday and I want to talk about my favorite romance tropes and the books that I love based on those tropes.
These are my go-to tropes when I am in a slump!
Siblings’ Best Friend
Why I Like this Trope I’m an only child and despite that, siblings’ best friend is my number one favorite trope! There is something in this trope that always check my boxes.

Enemies to Lovers
Why I Like this Trope This is the perfect trope to read when you want awesome banter! Bonus points for a sassy heroine!
Review: Halfway to the Grave | Kiss An Angel
Why I Like This Trope Here’s another trope where you can get all the awesome banter! This is another trope closely related to the enemies to lovers trope, but it is still very different! This trope is where the hero and heroine are polar opposites and not just enemies.
Why I Like this Trope This is the trope that always gives me angst and drama. I am also a fan of social class disparity romance and I think that belongs under this trope. Social class disparity is still a forbidden romance, especially in historical romance because these classes aren’t supposed to intermarry.

Social Class Disparity
Second Chance Romance
Why I Like this Trope One of my favorite tropes is second chance romance! This is what I would pick when I want a good cry.
Reviews: Repeat | The Ones Who Got Away
Fairy Tale Retelling
Why I Like this Trope This is my go-to trope for whimsy and nostalgia. This is where my love for fairy tales and my love for romance novels collide. Since most fairy tales don’t end in an HEA, a fairy tale retelling romance trope guarantees that!
