My life next door is one of my favorite books! I think I’m the only person who doesn’t live Christina Lauren though!!
Oh… I always feel embarrassed about my romance novel habit, but I have to say the fake dating ones always entertain me despite (or perhaps because?) they are the most ludicrous and least plausible.
Also kind of got a sweet spot for fake and/or arranged marriages which I blame on watching too much K-drama and Bollywood in my youth.
Loved this post! Given me some good tbr adds x
The only relationship developing through text book I’ve ever read is Geekerella. I really enjoyed it though!
You’ve put all the wonderful romance tropes in a single list… Awesome !!!
Have you read Fix Her Up yet? It had both fake dating and brother’s best friend. The romance was a little fast for me, but the sex was steamy af!
This is such a great TTT! I love pretty much everything you’ve listed. Enemies to Lovers and Fake Dating are my personal favs. Cannot ever read enough of both tropes lol!
Here’s my TTT if you want to check it out :)))
Such a good list!!
Great list! My personal faves are enemies/friends to lovers & fake dating!
Great list! I love all of these.
Friends to lovers and pinning from afar are great tropes! They usually imply slowburn romance, and I live for those!
Oh I agree with all of those tropes!
Love your list! So much yes to all of these tropes. I’m also going to be adding many of these to my TBR now 😂
omg yes love the boy next door trope!!
I love that you’ve included examples of books with each trope. I also adore enemies to lovers and really enjoy books that use different methods of communication, like texts, in them.

Atm my favorite enemies to lovers is definitely The Cruel Prince. I also loved Wicked Lovely which I think had that too (I definitely remember the main character hating the other) but it’s been a while and I definitely need to re-read it again to refresh my memory. When I was younger I used to love the Princess Diaries for containing different features like lists and notes. A lot of YA & adult books that contain such features I still need to read though (like 13 Little Blue Envelopes). Although I did love The Silent Companions which had some pretty good diaries entries in it.
