Top 5 Tuesday: Bye bye tropes

top 5 tuesday fall

Another wonderful topic Shanah came up with this week is Tropes i’ve had enough of. Some more of our beloved and betrothed tropes.

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm. If you would like to participate here are the the topics for October.

1) The off limits romance

Let me just say I know this trope all too well, in reality. It is horrible, selfish, and just plain wrong. PLEASE STOP.

2) Life changes because of a boy or girl

Seriously, you DO NOT need anyone to rescue you or change you. Find yourself then think about a relationship.

3) Illness as a quirk

Enough said.

4) A jerk because they had trauma

In the real world majority of people has had trauma. *pointing at myself also* I do not let that define me. You can’t just think the world is out to get you and be a jerk because you have had some problems in life.

5) I only want the hot person

I feel like I see this a lot. I just watched Sierra Burgess is a loser. Let’s be honest, he wouldn’t have even thought of Sierra in a romantic way if he hadn’t got to know her personally. We all know the hot guy will not give the “okay” looking girl a second glance. This is reality though, not just a trope.

    Yes to all of these! Also Sierra Burgess is a weird movie… I didn’t understand the point of it at all. Like catfishing and bullying are okay as long as all the victims make up in the end? What?

    Noah Centineo is the only saving grace about Seirra Burgess. I hate most of the tropes you have mentioned especially the one about love saving them and everything in their world.
