Top 5 Wednesday: 5 Fictional Tropes I’ll Never Tire of



First of all, I had to research “trope.” I found this helpful article that gave some examples. Sadly, the examples it gave were most of the books using those tropes that I’d read!


1. Lady Who Lunches Finds Purpose


Ok, Willa isn’t really a true Lady Who Lunches, but she’s a lady of a certain age, is a bit lost for a purpose and isn’t wildly happy. Close Enough? I thought so! You can read my review HERE.


#2 The Old Guy Saved by the Kid



Bringing an orphan to her only remaining relatives is just another day’s work for Jefferson Kidd. Or is it? Read my review HERE.


3. The Fat Girl Gets the Guy




And soon her story becomes a movie with music by Dolly Parton and starring Jennifer Aniston! What’s not to love about any Julie Murphy book? Read my review HERE.


4. Cinderella aka Just For One Night




After “borrowing” that iconic little black dress from the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s, a new star is born! I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. You can read my review HERE.


5. The Off-Beat, Unlikely Hero




Frank just knows what music people need. He just does. But he does so much more than that for the community without ever realizing it. Loved this. Here’s my review.

  1. Thanks for teaching me something. I didn’t know what a trope was that well either.

    I loved News of the World, and I haven’t read the others, but some seem interesting.


  2. Okay, my senior daughter said a trope is a cliche, but a positive cliche. Then we pulled up the article and she said, “Yeah.” 🙂 I know it’s been mentioned in directions/lectures in AP Lit last year because the girls have discussed the term. I am on the library hold list for #1. All these look interesting actually!


    1. They are all really good–I’m pretty surprised looking back over it after you comment. News of the World was a favorite of that year even. Most people who do Top 5 are YA readers so I think trope is more meaningful there. I don’t read much YA but the Audrey book was one.


  3. Nice on! I have saved your Tyler review because I’m making myself wait for the paperback so it matches the rest of my complete collection. I like a Cinderella story, e.g. Mrs ‘Arris Goes to Paris or Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day and also young innocents set up house (Greenery Street and an E. Nesbit adult novel I read quite recently but um ….).
