Happy Sunday Bibliofriends,
This week’s Six For Sunday continues our tropes theme and this time we’re discussing tropes we want to see more of. Any of my favourite tropes from my first Six For Sunday post this month I could read and read forever so I’ve tried to include a few of the less common tropes that I’d want to read more of here.
For those who don’t already know, Six for Sunday is weekly meme hosted by Steph over at A Little But A Lot.
Something where everyone dies at the end
I don’t think I’ve ever read a book where every single person dies at the end but maybe it could be
fun different right?!
Anything with Water – seas, rivers, waterfalls, mermaids, pirates
Its not really a trope but anything with a water feature or where water is a major part of the world and I’m desperate to read it!
Coming Full Circle
Something which links right back to the very start whilst still containing the closure of the ending. I can’t quite explain how I see it in my head and I don’t just mean everything in the world going back to normal like it was at the beginning, but I’d love to see some reference which makes the beginning of the story relevant at the end.
Curve-ball Endings (done well)
Something where although I know this story has finished, the author has left the possibility wide open for another character or spin-off novel to take place within the world. Or a curve ball that comes so out of the blue that I’m shocked and left reeling by the end of it.
Enemies to Lovers / Forbidden Romances
We’ve covered this – I love this trope… more, more, more please!
Sometimes, just sometimes I wish we’d see more of the villains winning in the story as opposed to the good side winning all of the time.
Tell me your favourite tropes which you wish appeared more often? Do you ever consider writing your own novel just to feature an underrated trope? As always, leave me a comment to chat or drop me your Six for Sunday links below and I’d be happy to visit.
