Romance has been on my mind a lot lately. Last week I got to read Emily Henry’s amazing Book Lovers, and it was everything I wanted and more! I cannot recommend it enough. I don’t think I will write a full-length review of it anytime soon, but I did post a short review on goodreads if you want to check it out.
In addition to that, I also got to see Casey McQuiston on the I Kissed Shara Wheeler book tour, and one of the things they talked about was about the way they really wanted to use all of their favorite romance tropes and also turn them on their head.
This all got me thinking a lot about what I think makes a good romance, and more importantly, which romance tropes are my personal favorites. Because as we all know, the tropes used make a huge difference in terms of how much you enjoy a book. So I thought I would share my personal top 5 romance tropes! These are tropes that enhance my personal experience of a romance book, and that make me more likely to pick a book up. I would also love to hear about your favorite tropes, so please do let me know in the comments what you look for in your romance!Continue reading “Discussion: My Top 5 Favorite Romance Tropes”
