Nope Trope Tag

Happy Friday! I’m doing yet another tag that I’ve just come across. Today’s was found on Morgane’s blog, BookMeSomeTime. You can find Morgane’s blog here.

  1. Eavesdropping with miscommunication –
    Name a book you heard great things about and expected to love but ended up hating.

    Hate is a strong word, but I definitely didn’t enjoy Strange Hotel by Eimear McBride as much as I expected to.
  2. Love Triangles –
    Name a series where you can’t pick your favourite book.

    I don’t read many series, so this is tricky! I actually can’t think of any series I’ve read where one of them doesn’t stand out as a favourite. The closest series I can think of for this is the Outline trilogy by Rachel Cusk, but the first book still comes out on top just about.
  3. Not Like Other Girls/Didn’t Know I’m Beautiful –
    Name a book that has a pretty cover but was boring as all hell.

    I can’t think of any books that were boring to be honest! One of my prettiest covers is Hamnet, though. But boring isn’t a word I would use to describe it.
  4. All-Consuming Love –
    Name a book that gave you a book hangover

    This isn’t something I really experience to be honest. If I had to pick, I think I’d go with Republic by Plato. It’s pretty dense, so it was hard work to get through, and I didn’t really want to read much alongside it.
  5. Douchebag Boyfriend –
    Name a book that took you a while to get into, but you ended up loving.

    I can’t think of any! I’m hoping that Ducks, Newburyport might fulfil this prompt, but only time can tell!
  6. Tell us your favourite or least favourite trope!

    I don’t have a favourite, so I’m going for least favourite, which is the Prince Charming type trope. I don’t really know what it’s called, but you know, the one where a woman meets Mr. Perfect, but there has to be loads of angst before they can be together properly. Like maybe she’s just been through a breakup, or she’s still with someone else, or there’s some big miscommunication (another trope that annoys me).

As I usually do, I’m tagging anyone who’s enjoyed these questions!
