Top Ten Tuesday #8

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Books with My Favorite Tropes/Themes

This week’s prompt is fun, isn’t it? There are so many tropes/themes I love. For this post, I’ve decided to focus on romance tropes since there are so many good ones. My favorites include: friends to lovers, enemies to lovers, fake relationship, forbidden love, soul mates, etc. I even don’t mind a little bit of instalove now and then. Just keep the love triangles away from me and I’ll be happy. Here are my top 12 books with my favorite romance trope/theme in them:

What about you? Which books have your favorite romance trope/theme in them? Do we have any in common?

    There are not many romance tropes that I don’t enjoy, but I am with you, no love triangles. I enjoyed Twilight and I have The Flatshare on my TBR list.

      I think love triangles is the most hated romance trope, but I could be wrong. I just hear all the time how much readers hate them. Yet, authors still write them.

    Fake relationship books are always so cute, I’ll definitely be reading more of them. I like enemies to lovers if it’s over a series arc, sometimes I think it’s done too quickly.

      Yeah, I definitely get that. I don’t mind if it’s done in one book, usually because it’s a book that focuses on romance and nothing else. Sometimes, it’s not done very well and I don’t like it very much, but there are series that I don’t like very much either. I think it just depends on the characters and the story for me.
