Top 5 Wednesday: Tropes I Hate

It’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is tropes I hate. 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…





5. Starcrossed lovers

Twilight (Twilight, #1)This is a very cliched thing in paranormal romance which I have stopped reading. It was just all the same, the paranormal romance formula was: ordinary girl falls in love with (insert mystical character here) but they can't be together and although twists they work out their relationship. There are only a few times to read this trope before it becomes boring...







4. Ordinary Girl or Boy can save the world

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)Although all teenagers at one point or another want to think that we are capable of saving the world, this is not the case. I feel like this is a very overused trope especially in dystopian fiction and in reality a whole team is need to over throw a governmen or save the world. I mean look at the Avengers ...








3. Manic Pixie Dream Girl/Boy 

Paper TownsThe manic pixie dream girl/boy trope is one that is featured quite heavily in films but is one that follows into books as well especially in Paper Towns in which Margo is the MPDG as she is the one that saves Q from his brooding teenage years and is the one who is idealised by him from the start of the novel. The reason I dislike this is the fact that there is almost an unequal balance between the two characters and that one of the characters is on a pedal stall . 






2. Instant love 

Everything, EverythingThis is one of those tropes that I can't stand. This may be because I don't believe that love at first sight is real as instant love is just based on appearance and I believe that to feel in love you must have a connection personality wise so instant love is just... NO! 








1. The Boy Next Door

It just doesn't happen OK...

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…
