My Opinion on Popular Romance Tropes + Recommendations

I was looking up books that had a certain trope when this idea hit me. I found 12 popular tropes and I'm going to tell you if I like them or not and why. Here we go! 

1) Amnesia/mistaken identity

I don't like this trope. I never seek it out and, honestly, I've been turned off some books for having this trope. 

2) Fake Relationship

I love this trope! If our MCs have to fake date for any reason at all. I'm on board! Here are some recommendations for this trope! 


3) Second Chance
Honestly, this trope is one that I don't usually read. Only one author does second chance romances they way I like. 

4) Secret identity/billionaire/royal
I'm very indifferent when it comes to this trope. I don't hate it but I don't love it. It's just 'meh' most of the time. I would love some recs for this trope if you have any good ones. 

5) Enemies to Lovers
This is probably my favorite romance trope. I just love the angst and banter that happens with this one. SO much fun! 
6) Forbidden Love
I love when our couple has to hide their love and sneak around or when they have to hide it from everyone to keep peace in the realm. Or even class difference romances. 

That's it for this post! I might do a part 2 with more tropes if you want it. Let me know below! Lastly, what is your favorite romance trope? I'm dying to know! Until next time, have a great day and stay safe!

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Short Update + The Stand-In Book Review

I've been lurking around your blogs for a few hours today and trying to catch up but I doubt I will. I've just missed so much! Sorry!  Today, I'm feeling a little bit better so I thought I would update you guys, since I've not blogged any in two weeks. The posts you've seen since then are just ones that I had scheduled for a while. I'm on the hunt for an anxiety medicine and had a really bad reaction to one my doctor put me on. I'm currently on steroids for a week to help that reaction.  Also, my grandma passed away recently and I've been trying to deal with that and help my family. They are really having it rough right now and it's been killing me trying to help them.  Then there's stuff with my kiddo. So yeah, I've been gone for a bit and dealing with things. I'm really hoping to get straightened out and get back to normal because this has been a sucky time.  Onto something bookish! I did manage to finish a book before everything kinda

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup - Review

The full inside story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of a multibillion-dollar startup, by the prize-winning journalist who first broke the story and pursued it to the end in the face of pressure and threats from the CEO and her lawyers. In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup "unicorn" promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood tests significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at $9 billion, putting Holmes's worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn't work. For years, Holmes had been misleading investors, FDA officials, and her own employees. When Carreyrou, working at The Wall Street Journal, got a tip from a former Theranos employee and started asking questions,
