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...

1 Year Blogging Anniversary and Giveaway (CLOSED)

So if you could not see by the title of the blog post, it has been a year since I posted my first blog post. I can happily say that this blog has changed a lot in this one year, I mean the layout has not been dramatically altered but the content has. This blog has increased my passion for reading and has been a way that I can spread this with everyone in this community. This has led me to read some incredible books and interact with some great people and I can happily say that I feel part of the community. 

Due to this being the first year of the blog existing, I hope for this to be the first of many so to track the changes in my blogging life especially in terms of my reading life. So let's get started...

Q1) Favourite book?

The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak- No book that I have read in the last two years seems to surpass how much I love this book but I am not saying that the books that I have read after this one are bad I just like this one a bit more...










Q2) What book do you hope to re…

2nd Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (OPEN)

So if you see by the title of the blog post, it has been over two years, on the 15th June 2015, since my first blog post. I said in my last blog post that a lot has changed in a year but I feel like the thing that has changed most is the layout because let's face it I haven't really been consistent this year. (I blame university.) Although my posts are inconsistent I still love blogging and come up with so many ideas that I want to write about and would love to become more consistent over the next year but we will see how that goes. Blogging comes with a great community of people and Twitter chats have made me find so many books that I love and interact with great people so I am happy to be part of this community. 

So last year I completed a mini-survey which spoke about books that I like and want to read to see if I might have changed in a year so I thought that this was something I will do again...

The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak- OK so this one hasn't cha…
