My thoughts on … popular YA tropes!

Hi and hello ☺

I am feeling slightly anxious right now as I have my driving theory test today (tomorrow as I’m writing this) and I have an irrational fear of failure, so I’ve scrapped my original plans for todays post and instead I’m going to be super chill and talk about my thoughts on Popular YA Tropes!

I was considering doing a Tier Rank List so I got this list of tropes from there but I decided just chit-chatting about each one independantly was much easier then ranking. I have 14 tropes to talk about today so let’s begin:


Heists

I don’t know if I really have much of an opinion when it comes to this trope as the only thing I’ve ever read with a major heist plot-line is, of course, the Six of Crows duology.

Moving away from YA though there are heist TV shows and movies that I’ve watched such as Oceans 8 (I have no plans to watch any of the others but this was goood) and Casa de Papel, aka Money Heist (still haven’t finished the first season though cause I am terrible).

I think my favourite element of this trope is in the character interactions. Such different personalities having together. I especially love a bit of antagonism between two characters thrown into the mix.

Recommendations/On my TBR:

I’ll happily take more of this trope where I can get it. Sadly the only book on my TBR that I know has Heist elements is Death Prefers Blondes by Caleb Roehrig so if you have any recs I’d love to hear them!
