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!
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.
