Happy Tuesday, everyone! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Today’s Top Ten is supposed to be all about our favorite tropes, but then this list would pretty much only have long paragraphs where I go on for hours about romance tropes. Let’s take a look at some of the things I will gladly read about, that make me smile and squee with glee and bolster my spirits and, overall, a happy reader.
