Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly tag hosted by Bionic Book Worm! Please head over and check out her blog!
This week’s topic is tropes I’ve had enough of! There’s so many I actually had to narrow it down!! But here you go!
1.) Queer girl cheats on her boyfriend/husband with a woman.
This is perhaps my biggest pet peeve in any queer story. Cheating is cheating, I don’t care who it’s with. It’s bad. And it’s something that is in SO many f/f stories.
2.) Love triangles
I suspect this one will be on a lot of lists today and doesn’t really need explaining.
3.) Main character in love with her best friend.
This one is a recent hate for me. It just bothers me SO much that even in fictional stories men and women can’t just be friends. Why does one always have to be in love with the other???
4.) Angst/conflict because of miscommunication.
This one I hate SO much. It mostly happens in romance and it’s almost ALWAYS why there’s conflict. Just! Talk! It’s honestly not that hard I don’t get it.
5.) Bad parenting
It annoys me how in book (mostly YA) there’s hardly any good parents. They’re either conveniently absent most of the book, or dead. The only good parents I’ve read are in contemporary.
Do you hate any of these tropes? Love them? I’d love to hear below!!
