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.
CLICHES AND TROPES(SUGGESTED BY M.T. WILSON @ THE LAST BOOK ON THE LEFT)
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?
A 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!
