Hi dear friends,
Ttoday is top 5 Tuesday at Shanah @bionicbookworm and it came with a shocking realization: I AM EASY!!!!
Not an easy lay mind you *or not that I know of* but an easy reader!
I was thinking about today’s topic the top 5 hated tropes and then went perusing on other’s post to get inspiration *I know that is totally cheating * but I came up blank!
Do you hate when a gorgeous girl never realizes that she is beautiful? Always downplaying her looks? Being totally clueless and “What? You find I am pretty?”
Yes? Well not me.
I can really believe that someone is insecure about his or her look. And no that’s not fishing for compliments when you are sincere.
If you happened to have been traumatized while young *say you were the only redhead and had been called carrot top whole your childhood by cruel boys* you would stay insecure.
One hated trope less.
Do you abhor the unexpected hero?
The lost heir or the one having hidden power. You know that guy who will suddenly be tasked with saving the world?
Well I am thrilled by it!
What? I could one day maybe but probably never save the world? Where do I order my cape and small shorts?
The hero meets the heroine and wam bam madame IN LOVE! At first sight! You already roll your eyes. Unbelievable!
Well I am swooning and sighing with stars in the eyes. I am a hopeless romantic, what can I say….
Hear that noise? It’s called the “hate that trope” crashing.
What? The female MC always wins, even bare handed and opposed to ten trained killers? Oh PUH-LEASE! She can’t be that badass! It ‘s not humanly possible.
Well you know what? I don’t care if it’s technically possible. I am a firm believer of the girl power and love kickass heroine. It is exhilarating and gives me a rush like none other!
You should see me right after chopping cucumber and carrots with a very decisive move and a big knife! Ha! Take that evil cucumber! You won’t stay green for long! Here comes kickass Sophiane *because of course I have an exotic alias*!
Damzel in distress needing to be always saved by the hero give you nausea ad eternam and make you rush to the nearest toilet? That girl has no power at all!
Well I choose to swoon over the protective and so romantic hero with a golden heart!
The only exception is love triangle. I HATE love triangles with a fierceness that knows no bounds! That back and forth the “I love him but the other is so perfect and…” is grating on my nerves!
I read some months ago one of the most beautiful books: Bring Down the Stars by Emma Scott…with a love triangle!
I realized that my hard line is pretty thin. As long as the book is well written I am a happy reader. The only thing I can’t stand is bad writing and loosy editing.
Oh and yes unnecessary drama!
But that’s not a real trope is it? When a good adult discussion could make 70% of the book useless I call it a waste of my time.
See I am pretty easy to please if you do your job correctly and give me:
-incredible side characters;
– some heartbreak but not too much;
-some angst but not too much;
-something to learn and ponder upon;
-a pet because I love animals;
-a quest even if personal;
_ a gorgeous cover;
– a chai latte with soja milk…wait what?
And you are you easy or do you passionately hate some tropes?
Thanks for reading!
