Tropey | The Fantasy Tropes Book Tag | #WyrdandWonder

Time for a fun book tag this Wyrd and Wonder. I came across the fantasy tropes book tag and decided it was a good time to dive into that. I don’t think I’ve ever done this one before so yeay for that.


  • Mention the creator ( one’s peculiar )
  • Answer the questions
  • Tag as many people as you like

1 – The Lost Princess – A book/series you lost interest in halfway through.

Kate Daniels by Ilona Andrews. I read the first 6 books and then just kind of never picked up the next books. I already was kind of done with the last two books I guess. I still don’t wonder about the ending of the series.

2 – The Knight in Shining Armour – A hyped book/series you were swept up by.

Mercy Thompson of course.

3 – The Wise Old Wizard – An author who amazes you with his/her writing.

Terry Pratchett who actually looked like a wise old wizard there. I’m always amazed with how he manages to weave all these story lines so far apart and then makes them come together. N.K. Jemisin is another one in this category.

4 – The Maiden in Distress – An undervalued character you wished had a bigger storyline.

Mephi from The Bone Shard Daughter.

5 – The Magical Sword –  A magical item/ability you wish authors used less.

Hmm. I’m not sure if I have a magical item or abbility I wish they used less. Tropes yes. The bad communication, the chosen one, the use only the younger ones etc. I guess in abillities maybe the elements? A lot of the time they just don’t get deepened out at all.

6 – The Mindless Villain – A phrase you cannot help but roll your eyes at

Talking about the handsome and pretty one. I’m just plain, blah blah.

7 – The Untamed Dragon –  A magical creature you wish you had as a pet.

A dragon of course. Or Mephi. I want a Mephi.

8 – The Chosen One – A book/series you will always root for.

Discworld. Bartimaeus.

  1. The bad communication in some Fantasy books can be teeth-grindingly frustrating, I agree!
    And I’m totally with you on the plain/pretty/handsome nonsense too!

    Can’t believe I forgot about Mephi… 😥

    Great answers! ❤

  2. Ik moet nog eens werk maken van het vervolg van de Kate Daniels boeken. Nu ja, haar reeks heb ik volledig uitgelezen maar ik heb hier nog een boek liggen waarin haar vriendin de hoofdrol voor rekening neemt, eentje waarin Hugh en zijn vriendin dat doen en één rond Julie. Er is ondertussen echter al behoorlijk wat tijd verstreken sinds ik Magic Triumphs las en ik merk dat ik dan minder snel geneigd ben om één van die drie boeken op te pikken.
