YA Romance Books
What is a trope? It is a recurring literary theme. From rags to riches to being the “chosen one,” it’s a popular device used in many stories. Whether you realize it or not, you probably gravitate toward books with similar story elements.
Some of my personal favorite tropes are the ones surrounding romance. Even if it’s cliche, I enjoy reading about characters falling in love in a variety of ways. Do you like reading about love triangles? That’s a trope, and there are countless books with this storyline for you to choose.
Here is a list of eight young adult books for some of the most popular romantic tropes! - Elise
