You know those tropes that other people don’t necessary like, but you do? Those tropes that make you the black sheep in the book community? Yeah, you do. Today, I’ll be talking about a few literary tropes that most people don’t usually like that I’m weirdly fond of. Let’s get started!
I’m the black sheep when it comes to this literary trope and I know it. I don’t know, I just find the possibility of having two possible love interests to be really interesting. It might just be my indecisiveness that contributes to my fondness of love triangles, but I guess we’ll never know.
Character(s) Have to Learn to Survive in a Strange Environment
I’m not sure about this one either, but I adore survival stories. For example, I devoured THE HOST by Stephanie Meyer (even though I wasn’t the hugest fan of the TWILIGHT series) because I thought it was so interesting! I mean, come on. Aliens! Survival! Romance! I have a sudden urge to reread this book.
Romantic tension is one of my favorite things to read about in YA. I definitely love a good action-packed book, but I also adore a well-done romance-packed novel. I find angst is a great way to pick up the pace in a book and I just love seeing characters evolve and develop when confronted by a different sort of problem.
Character Disguises as Someone Else
You know those books where the main character disguises themself as another person to commit murder/trickery/the like? That plot device is really super duper exciting in my opinion. I love reading about the main character and learning more about how they manage to pull off stunts like that.
