Top Ten Tuesday – Favourite Tropes


Top Ten Tuesday is the weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s theme is: favourite tropes. A trope is defined as a common or overused theme, device or cliché. Some view tropes to be avoided. Yet, they can be used effectively and make for a fun read.

Here are 10 tropes I enjoy reading, with 2 books for each trope I have read this year and thoroughly enjoyed:
1. Time Travel (especially involving Highlanders)
