This week’s Top 5 Tuesday topic is another fun one as it’s all about our least favourite tropes!
Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm and each week there’s a different bookish topic to discuss. If you’re interested in participating, or checking out Shanah’s blog, click here!
I just hate all the unnecessary drama that comes along with love triangles, it’s just so pointless and gets incredibly boring. The only love triangle that I’ve ever enjoyed was the one between Will, Tessa, and Jem in The Infernal Devices but that’s because it was done so well, and all the characters respected each other.
I don’t really know what this trope is called, but it’s basically where there are no female friendships in books and instead all the female characters hate each other. Usually this is for no reason as well, and to me, it’s another pointless trope. It’s 2018, why is girl hate still a thing in books???
There’s honestly nothing worse than insta-love in books. There never seems to be any build up or suspense or anything like that which just gets so boring. I’m all for the slow burn relationships!
No character can be perfect, it’s just impossible. What’s the point of writing a character who has no flaws or has no potential for character development?
I hate reading a book and after the first few chapters guessing something is going to happen. It gets so disappointing because I always want to be surprised when it comes to any important event in a book, but when I can guess exactly what’s going to happen, I almost feel like I’ve wasted my time. I just want some twists and turns thrown in, and for it not to be as obvious in the first chapters what will actually happen.
