The Fantasy Tropes Book Tag

Hello, reader!

It’s Tuesday, which is the perfect day for a tag, yeah? This one is right up my alley because it’s the Fantasy Tropes Book Tag! Fantasy is my favorite genre, it’s what I gravitate towards the most, so you know I’m excited to do a tag focused around the inherent tropes.

We all know how long it takes me to do tags. This time, it took so long I got tagged twice πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚ So I want to thank two of my favorite bloggers, Danni @ _ForBooksSake and Erika @ And On She Reads, for tagging me! They both have incredible blogs that cover books of all genres and you should definitely check them out πŸ’–

Alright, let’s jump in!

The Rules:

  • Mention the creator (Β one’s peculiarΒ )
  • Answer the questions
  • Tag as many people as you like

The Prompts:

1 – The Lost Princess – A book/series you lost interest in halfway through.

When I first started the Anita Blake series, I was into them. Like, really into them. I tore through the first few books and was hungry for more. And then they just kept coming. And the actually story line started getting a little… dull. Which is hard to do when your main character is a vampire hunter and there’s lots of paranormal sexy times going on! I think I stopped at book 10 and I have no interest in going back.

2 – The Knight in Shining Armor – A hyped book/series you were swept up by.

The hype around The House in the Cerulean Sea was real! I had been hearing about it everywhere and it certainly piqued my interest. But, as happens sometimes with hyped books, I kept putting off reading it because I was nervous the hype built my expectations way too high. Funnily enough, not only did this book meet my expectations, it blew them out of the water!

3 – The Wise Old Wizard – An author who amazes you with his/her writing.

Erin Morgenstern. Hands down. When I read The Night Circus, I knew I would read absolutely anything she wrote. That’s usually a decision I reserve until I’ve read at least two things by an author! My faith was solidified when I read The Starless Sea which I loved as much if not more than her first book. Her writing is just top tier.
