Exploring My Bookshelves 2016

A Book With Your Least Favourite Trope

This one is easy for me; I DESPISE love at first sight. It doesn’t make sense! You can’t love someone without really getting to know them, love at first sight just means you think they’re good looking. You might think they look nice, I can get that. Love though? Nope, sorry!

I chose Twilight as the first book to come to my head with that awful trope in it. Edward and Bella are so not meant to be, their ‘love’ is completely awful. And sorry this is so late! Life got away with me a little. Hopefully my posts are back on track again from now

  1. I totally agree! it doesn’t make any sense, it reminds me of Romeo and Juliet (I have so many problems with that play) how they fell in love without even knowing one another. I understand that some people just click (like get along instantly) and some people don’t, but no one falls instantly in love with someone else

    1. That’s why I haven’t read the play, I know there would be so many things about it that would make me mad! And that one in particular is seen as such a great love story, but it really isn’t?

  2. Oh yes, totally agree – love at first sight just doesn’t work for me! And Twilight…ahhh that’s definitely the example that comes into my head too! :/
    I dunno, there’s just something I prefer about slow buildups when it comes to romance in books 🙂
