Hi all my Bookworms!
My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.
How are you all?
I hope your week went well. Does anyone else realise that this is my last #S4S for July? This month has gone by so quickly. I am definitely counting down the days till by birthday.
Before I dive in I should tell you about #S4S. Six For Sunday, or #S4S for short, is a weekly book meme created in June 2017 by Steph over at A Little But A Lot, and each week there is a different topic. I really encourage you to check out their site.
The topics we’ve had so far this month are:
5th July: Tropes You Love
12th July: Tropes You Hate
19th July: Overdone Tropes
26th July: Tropes You Want To See More of. (<-this week)
- Found Family – I know that Found Family is actually quite a common trope but I love it so much that I always want more of it. There’s a saying that ‘you can choose your friends, but you can’t choose your family’ but I think a lot of books prove that to be wrong. We can choose the people that we keeps in our lives and make family.
- Female Heroines – I always want a bit more girl power!
- And They Don’t Live Happily Ever After – I know that sounds a little backwards. But I’ve read a few books in the last few months where the characters don’t end up together at the end. The move on from each other decide that their lives are better apart.
- Team Work! – I’ve said in the past few weeks how much I dislike the Chosen One trope, but the opposite of that for me is Team Work. A large group of people come together and get the job done.
- The Slow burn – I think that there is something brilliant about slow burn romances, but they are so difficult to get right.
- I Like Who I Like – I’m not sure that this is a trope, or if it is, I’m not sure this is the name for it. By that title I mean a character not coming out and explicitly stating their sexuality and just saying that they like the people that they like and they don’t need a label.
Do you want to see more of these tropes, or do you like different ones? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to know what you think.
