The Trope Tag

I appreciate a good trope, so I knew I had to do this tag when I saw it on Saima’s blog (stories with saima). This tag was created by Ash @ Ink Words & Ash.

enemies to lovers — a book you formerly hated/disliked but now love

This is a difficult question because I honestly don’t think that this has ever happened to me. Maybe that is because I am not much of a rereader! I will say that there is potential for my feelings about Frankenstein to change for two reasons. One, I read it in high school for a philosophy class that I despised and two, I love retellings of Frankenstein. One day, I will reread this and we will find out!

second chance — a book you previously did not finish but now adore

I attempted to read The Golem and the Jinni a few times over the years before finally getting through it earlier this year, and I absolutely adored it. It is now one of my favourite books of all time, but I do think it is a book you have to be in the mood to read.

love triangle — a duology where you love both the books

I will never miss an opportunity to talk about Raybearer and Redemptor. It is my favourite duology of all time, but I do need more from this world!

friends to lovers — a book recommended to you that you enjoyed

I get recommendations from fellow bloggers every single day, so there are many books that I could have chosen for this question. I recently read The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy after seeing so much praise for it and, though it took me a minute to get into, I ended up loving it!

insta-love — a book you knew you would love (at first sight!)

I am drawn to multi-generational family sagas, so I always knew that Pachinko would become a favourite. That is why I put it off for as long as I did!

the chosen one  your all-time favourite (of the year/month)

A Prayer for the Crown-Shy was my favourite book of August, which is no surprise considering how much I loved the first book! Lakelore by Anna-Marie McLemore was a close second.

forbidden love — a loved book you don’t talk about often

I read The Wonder before I started blogging, so it is not a book I think to bring up very often, but it is one that I loved and still think about!

secret billionaire — a book you read and enjoyed before you knew it was popular

I read The Song of Achilles when it was starting to get some buzz, but it was nothing like it is now!

found family — your most cherished books!

I could never part with my Pride and Prejudice collection!

forced proximity — a required-reading book you read and enjoyed

I had to read Tuesdays With Morrie in high school, but it was actually a reread for me at the time. I consider this book to be one of the reasons that I fell in love with reading!

  1. Here’s a cool story about Tuesdays With Morrie…… after my grandson read the book he decided to email us (his grandparents) every Tuesday with a life update, reflections, thoughts, etc. we’ve received a “Tuesdays With Grandparents” email every week for years! It’s a treasured highlight of our week! ! 💖

  2. this is such a fun tag! I have yet to read Raybearer or Redemptor (but I own both!) but I have a feeling I’ll love them as well. My favourite duology is definitely the Carls series by Hank Green, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing and A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor are incredible!

  3. There’s a lot of books on here that I also love! I can’t wait to read Crown-Shy! I just got my hands on Golem, based on your rec! 🙂

  4. omg yes!!! i love your pride and prejudice collection! i collect jane austen’s books too and its so much fun because there are so many cool (and sometimes weird) editions of her books haha
