Well hello, beautiful people! It’s Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s TTT is all about your favorite trope, but I don’t have one favorite trope, I have several. So I thought I would give you a few examples of my favorite ones!
Top Ten Tuesday, by the way, is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish.
Trope One: The Chosen One
So you may notice a theme in my chosen one trope. Yes, they are all King Arthur re-tellings. He’s my favorite literary chosen one. I think I saw The Sword in the Stone one too many times as a child, but I love the idea of the chosen king. One day he shall live again!
Trope Two: Time Loop/Groundhog Day
The time loop has been a favorite trope of mine for years. Recursion did it beautifully, and if you want to have your mind twisted, give it a read. If you’re not familiar, the time loop/groundhog day trope is what happens when a specific character (or group of characters) repeats the same day (or a specific period of time) over and over again until the goal or purpose is achived.
Trope Three/Four: The Grump-Sunshine Trope/Fake Dating Trope
Trope Five: Enchanted Object/Weapon
This enchanted sword actually appears in several books in the Valdemar verse and I love it so much. There are other famous enchanted objects, but I ran out of books to use!
And there it is! A few of my favorite tropes and the ten books in therein! I had fun hunting these titles down. I was having issues and could remember the name of Recursion. I kept typing Remember into the search bar. Right idea, wrong title.
What is your favorite trope?

Neon Gods was so good!
