Top 5 Wednesday: "Favourite" Character Tropes

It’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is "favourite" character tropes. Although it is meant to be tropes that you like I thought I would put a spin on the topic and do my sarcastically favourite tropes. I am sorry if this week's topic seems like I am ranting. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the goodreads group and discover the creator of the group Lainey. So let’s get started…



Number 5: Love Triangles

Image result for shatter meAlthough I do like love triangles to an extent, I do find them very unrealistic in the sense that they never happen in real life. I dislike them most in dystopian novels because instead of trying to save the world they pine over which boy they want.








Number 4: When the main character falls in love with the best friend

Image result for city of bonesAgain I do like this trope to an extent but again this is very unrealistic. Most of us are friends with boys but never do we pursue or get romantic feelings for our friend. I was talking about this before and I said that I would love to write a book when the character has a strong relationship with her best friend but they have no romantic feelings because that is more realistic to life. 






Number 3: Strong Female Character

Image result for hunger games bookAlright, Alright I don't hate this trope but I do think that it has flaws. I don't think that the strong female character trope should be a thing because all women are strong but in different ways and the word "strong" itself is quite difficult to define. You also don't see male characters being labelled as strong because they are expected to be so already. 







Number 2: The likable villain 

Image result for grisha trilogyEverytime that this trope comes up in a book, I don't like the villain but everyone else seems to love them. Whether it be Warner from Shatter Me or the Darkling from the Grisha trilogy people fall in love with the villain and I just don't...









Number 1: Beautiful Girl thinks she is ugly 

Image result for delirium bookThis is my number one hated character trope as the girls are typically beautiful and just hate the way they look even though they are the typical petite, skinny YA stereotypical just because they have never had a boyfriend. Futhermore, is when they only think they are beautiful when they have a boy tell them.  







What are our favourite or "favourite" character tropes? Leave them in the comments below. 

See you soon,

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…
