Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Things I Dislike When It Comes To Romances In Books

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Things I Dislike When It Comes To Romances In Books

  1. That "instant" connection..."I've only known you for 30 seconds, but you're my soul mate. Let's make out and then I'll constantly pine when you're gone."
  2. A knight is shining armor. Yeah, I said it...I love kick ass heroines who can fend for themselves and not rely on a big strong man to come in and save them.
  3. Anyone who sings. Disney, here's looking at you.
  4. Love triangles. While they occasionally have their place, overall YA and romance books have become overrun by them. Just have one, genuinely good guy. That's all I'm asking for. 
  5. The Bella/Edward syndrome. "I'm totally in love with you and hang on your every word...blah, blah, blah...I can't stand to live without you..."
  6. The constant need to be with said "soul mate." We all need a little alone time. Really.
  7. The dark, brooding man. Get. Over. Yourself. And sister, move on!
  8. Constant gifting. A gift here and there is special and nice. But the man who constantly CONSTANTLY dotes on his girl is just annoying. Ex: Here's a dress so you look nice when you meet my work colleagues.
  9. Vampires. I had my True Blood phase, but it's time to move on to the living. 
  10. Women doing reckless things for the "love of their life," and ignoring EVERYONE else's advice. 


  1. Put wonderfully!:) Ugh its horrible when they use the word "soulmates" so quickly or when they say "I love you" way before they really know each other!:( I love when they're equals and not constantly waiting to be saved:) Bella and Edward syndrome is so annoying when it's rushed or when the characters are constantly being overdramatic- sometimes the build up to a romance is perfect but when they're actually together all they can say is "I can't live without you"
    Great list!:D
