Q:  What are some common tropes you've seen in a genre you like to read? Are there any books that you've read that reverse or change those tropes?
A: First of all, I had to look up what the heck a trope is and do I have any? To be fair, I'm still baffled. I like irony, so yeah, I imagine I have tropes. Do not even expect me to list what they could possible be.

  1. For the life of me, I cannot read that license plate to figure out what the title of the book is! It doesn't matter because I don't read horror books, but I am curious. And the Maker's Mark line is funny. Don't tell anyone, but I sometimes have similar thoughts when planning for a weekend with the grandkids.

  2. i keep thinking that tropes are things like triangulated love or teenagers with alcoholic parents having troubles at school. Maybe I'm wrong. My book this week is Saving My Enemy

  3. I am okay with tropes, but I'm not sure what the title of your book is :-) is a great place to learn about tropes and they have lists for different genres. It's great for a laugh.

  4. I never read Joe Hill's books, but that does sound like a good one. Have a great weekend!

  5. Love the beginning lines. Makes you want to know more.

  6. You know ... I've seen this book around and I only JUST got what the title means. I feel stupid. xD I've heard good things about Joe Hill, and I really want to check out his work. This one sounds interesting!

  7. Joe Hill is too scary for me, but I hope you enjoy it!

  8. I really enjoyed The Heart-Shaped Box but haven't read anything else yet by Joe Hill. I hope you are enjoying it!

    I didn't participate in this week's BBHOP because I wasn't sure I could come up with a satisfying (to me) answer. LOL I take tropes to mean commonly used plot devices. I think most genre fiction uses tropes in one way or another. I am sure there are way more than I know about--including ones I have come across but didn't recognize.

    I hope you have a great weekend, Freda!

  9. I love that Joe Hill sometimes writes with his father--Stephen King.

Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
