S4S – Tropes I hate

Good morning!

It’s week 2 of Trope-tastic July! I loved reading your #SixforSunday posts last week… it’s so lovely to see the tropes we all love. Especially when I saw that people loved tropes that I know I am not a big fan of!

Speaking of tropes I’m not a fan of, this week we are talking:

Tropes I hate

Now, I found this a bit harder because there’s not a lot that I read that I hate (why would you intentionally put yourself through something you think you’re going to hate?), but I managed 6. I had more… but these are the ones I hate most!

  1. Love triangles 
    I hate them SO SO SO SO SO MUCH. So much. So much. Go away.
  2. Related characters because it makes the plot easier.
    There is a series I really love that has this… and I still am not over it haha.
  3. Every teacher being useless/mean/horrible
    MORE REPRESENTATION OF GOOD TEACHERS IN YA PLEASE.
  4. When a character is there for the sake of it and their one defining thing is the only thing about them.
    The only thing that’s memorable about your character is that they’re gay/fat? Please just don’t.
  5. The makeover fixes the girl
    NO. STOP IT. ALL OF THEM.
  6. Bitchy girls
    I know these are a reality and often useful to the story, but I HATE reading bitchy characters.

I can’t wait to see what you all have to say about this prompt… because I have STRONG FEELINGS about this and I imagine there are people who have strong feelings about their choices too!

See you next week for #SixforSunday! And I might see you over at #SixforSunday chat on twitter at 6!

    I hate love triangles too! I also agree about needing more positive representation of teachers. I have had so many teachers who inspired me and mentored me, and I wish we saw more of that in books.
