The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. IT was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by Billy@Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.
This week’s topic is:
February 10th – 16th – Do you enjoy reading romance novels? If so, which romance trope is your favorite?
I do sometimes get in the mood for romance novels, although I seem to be indulging in them more lately. I like how easy they are to read, and I especially like the funny ones. I also like a little romance thrown into any kind of book I am reading, except when it starts to take over the story.
I’m not sure I have a favorite troupe, but if I am trying to choose between two romances and one states that it is an enemies to lovers story, then that is usually the one I will pick. I’m not sure why this troupe attracts me so much, but I think I associate it with snarky dialogue which always makes me at least smile if not laughing out loud.
Coming in a strong second would be the fake relationship trope. Again I usually like it for the amusement values. I especially like this trope when one or both of the parties don’t seem to particularly like each other, but still agree to the fake relationship for their own reasons.
I think my least favorite trope is the soul mate one and all of it iterations. I just never feel like this one really works and I usually end up hating one or both of the characters because of this. I especially hate this one in other books, typically fantasy, because I think it is too easy of an explanation for the characters feelings. I have seen it work a couple of times, but if I see this in the summary of a book, then I probably won’t choose to read it.
How do you feel about romance novels? Do you have a favorite trope? Let me know in the comments.
Funny, your second favorite trope is one I wish could stay in 2021 or 2022.
