Let’s Talk Bookish: February 5, 2021

It’s that time of week again! 🙂

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, hosted by me (Rukky@EternityBooks) and Dani @ Literary Lion, where we discuss certain topics, share our opinions, and spread the love by visiting each other’s posts.


Can cliches and tropes be done well?

Oh, heck yes!!! Take Pride & Prejudice and the haters-to-lovers trope that was and has been the clichest of tropes almost ever, yet Jane Austen did a REMARKABLE job of using that cliche in her novel.

When is something a trope and when is it a cliche?

The definitions:

trope is an idea or device that repeatedly appears. A cliché is a phrase or saying that attempts to explain many situations.

I think this adds to my opinion which is, a trope is the “idea” that repeatedly appears, such as hater-to-lovers trope, and the cliche is the term that helps explain the trope…if that makes any sense. 😉

When do you enjoy cliches or tropes, and when do you not?

It’s quite simple really, when they are done right vs. when they are done wrong. 😉

How much do cliches/tropes affect your overall opinion of a book?

Not TOO hugely…it really depends on the trope, how it was applied, and how it affected the book.

This was quite a fun discussion! Can’t wait to see y’alls take on these prompts!

What is your favorite trope (when done right, of course)? Do you have a guilty pleasure trope???? 😉 Let’s chat in the comment section below!

Thanks for reading, guys. God bless!


How you make others feel says a lot about you.

    1. HOW?! What do you not fully understand about them? They can be a bit hard to grasp though. Easiest way to think of them is to think of them ass cliches…cause these days, not many people distinguish between the two.
