Top 5 Tropes I Want More Of:

Strong YA Female Lead


This one just never gets old for me. I know some people get tired of seeing the main female character facing obstacles with little to no trouble and overcoming everything being put in front of her, but I love it and always will!

Friends to Lovers


This is probably one of my favorite tropes. I honestly think lasting relationships are built on friendship and these relationships are way more believable and romantic to me!

A Hero of Humble Origins


I love this trope so much because it teaches us to never give up. It shows us that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.

Villain Redemption


This has to be one of my favorite tropes. I stand with my belief that no one is truly 100% evil, and even villains can change their ways and redeem themselves. There is something so powerful about learning a lesson and changing and overcoming negativity and poor choices.

Enemies to Friends


Another powerful favorite trope that you don’t see much. I love when enemies become friends. It’s boasts about forgiveness, second chances, and not judging a book by its cover. Some amazing friendships are formed from this trope!

  2. Enemies to friends! Like Glinda and Elphaba!!!!

    I am 100% done with the strong female lead, especially in YA. It’s not that I have a problem with a strong female lead, but more that “strong” seems to be equated with hyper-masculinity and violence, which is just…. whatever. Like, Katniss and Buffy are my girls, but I need more Hermiones. But yay that you like it because it’s literally EVERYWHERE! lol

    1. I totally get that, which is why I think I like more emotionally strong YA leads. I don’t actually know that I’ve read a lot of violent or masculine YA lead stories, but I like reading about a lead female who doesn’t fall apart and cry about everything, you know? So, I think we are on the same page, ;-).

      1. I guess I have read a lot of YA female leads who I maybe wouldn’t call violent, but definitely combatant. On the other hand, I don’t know that I’ve read many at all who fall apart and cry about everything!

        On that topic, one of my favorite Middle-Grades is called The Two Princesses of Bamarre, which is about 2 sisters, the strong one and the scared one. And then the scared one has to become the hero and finds out that maybe she can be brave too, even if she isn’t “strong” with a sword or whatever. I love it SOOOO MUCH!

  3. Enemies to friends is awesome, especially when it’s platonic but even in a romance storyline it’s pretty great! And I love a redeemed villain! All of these are good though, really, if done well. 🙂

  4. I love reading any of these tropes – especially a hero of humble origins and I’m a total sucker for friends to lovers. Another trope or feature I love is meet cutes – who doesn’t love an accidentally sweet meeting?? Love this post!
