Hey guys I am back with another YA Cliche but this time I am gonna share those which I hate…yes we all hate some of the YA Cliches and for me also there are few so without much a do here I am sharing my list:
1) Love Triangle:
I am very clear with this fact that I cannot deal with love Triangles or any other complex relationship status, there is one girl and a guy happy but then second guys enters the scene and grabs attention of girl and there come complexities, she likes both and cannot decide with whom she really wants to be. Guys this is a reason why I really hate Twilight series. Infact in Sabaa Tahir’s An Ember in the Ashes I hated Helene when she was jealous of Laia or if you have read falling kingdom series then you guys will exactly get to why I get so irritated with love Pentagon.
2) Beautiful princesses:
So in every princess YA Books girls are more than beautiful with those big blue eyes and blond curly hair falling down to there slim waist and they look like goddesses; uhggggg!! I hate it 😲 I seriously do, I mean why these princesses can’t be like any normal girl made of imperfections or why they have to be like goddesses every time who always falls in love with some thief and is always engaged to some high class jerk!!
I like princesses who can beautiful and brave and intelligent.
Many books have female leads who are tomboy and they think that being girly is shallow and those who apply lipsticks are dumb. I have a classic example of this character from Falling Kingdom series and the girl is Lyssandra. Personally I like Lyssandra but her Outlook on other women was not acceptable. She thinks she is superior because she is not like other girls which is very irritating most of the times. I mean like you are a girl and please embrace your feminity.
4) Strong characters:
Yup I like strong, opinionated and intelligent characters I love them but sometimes authors try to make characters extra strong that it becomes unbearable for me to read. I mean yes you are the lead and you have got to solve the problems but dude others are not dumb, at least have an opinion of others as well. Often these characters think that they are far more better than others so decision making authority should be with them. Example would be Mare Burrow of Red Queen series!! I think she was so ambitious that she took decision that at the end made her look like fool.
I cannot ship when characters becomes experts suddenly and then they master their skills which makes them undefeatable!! Specially when it comes to fighting skills. I mean I am the person who believe that daily practice makes person perfect but master of particular subject is nit digestible for me!!
So these were the Cliches I hate….if you guys have same opinion do let me know and if not then what irritates you most let me know in comment section!!
Thanks for reading!!!
