Hello Fellow Bookworms!
For those of you still out of the loop, Bookending Autumn 2019 is one of the quarterly Bookend Events created and ran by two amazing book bloggers, Sam and Clo. The goal for each quarter is to discover new blogs, bring the community together and make new friends! You can track and join the fun by checking out the #BEAutumn19 hashtag on twitter 🙂
Today’s Bookending Autumn prompt was created by the one and only Meeghan @Meeghan Reads! Go check out her answers and take a trip through her amazing blog!
Autumn is for walks in the brisk air, drinking lattes, wearing matching scarves and hats, jumping in piles of leaves… wait! Is this sounding a little tropey to you? Let’s talk about some of our fave (and not so fave) romance tropes.
A point of debate for as long as I’ve been a bookworm (aka all my life), Tropes are constantly talked about throughout the tv and book world. Whether we like them or not, tropes are an important part of every story we read/ see. Regardless of whether they are romantic or platonic, they play a necessary role in order to get the story moving along and have the viewers/readers relate.
It’s been a while since I’ve
subjected you guys to written about my favorite tropes: Top Five Tuesdays: Tropes I Hate To Love
Not much has changed from April to now honestly. If anything my love for certain romantic tropes has grown stronger with the release of certain books.
