Anyway, I’ve been watching a lot of Tier Ranking videos and I really wanted to try them for myself. So, I decided to do a Romance Trope Tier Ranking! Here is the link to the Tier Ranking in case you guys want to try it.

Here are my rankings!

*heart eye emoji*

  • Sibling’s Best Friend. When I was younger, this used to be my favorite trope and I still love it; I just haven’t read anything with this trope in a while.
  • Enemies to Lovers. I think is my favorite trope. I will read ANYTHING that has it.
  • Slow Burn, Mutual Pining. If you know me I LOVEEE slow burn romances, I live for them. It doesn’t matter how many pages it takes; I will read it.
  • Corporate AU. I’m a sucker for office romances.
  • Reformed Rake. Everyone loves a bad boy turned good.

Like it

  • Fluff. I like fluff in small doses just don’t over well me, otherwise I get turned off
  • Secret Relationship. Uff who doesn’t love a secret relationship?
  • Isolated/Trapped. Yes, please!
  • Wager/Bet. Nothing like a good old-fashioned competition between the two main characters to bring them together and fall in love
  • Fake Dating. No matter how many times I see this trope, I always enjoy it.


  • There’s only one bed. This one is as old as time and I always smile when I see it. Sure, why not?
  • Soulmates. Sometimes this is a bit too cheesy for me, but sure, I can get on board with it.
  • Will you zip me up? I always laugh when I see this
  • Friends to Lovers. This is not a trope I normally go for but given a good recommendation I’m open to trying it.
  • Bodyguard. Sure, why not?

Depends on execution

  • Practice Kissing. Not normally my cup of tea, but I guess it depends on executions
  • Flower Shop Worker/ Tattoo Artist AU. Not normally my cup of tea, but I guess it depends on executions
  • Let’s just get it out of our system. Not normally my cup of tea, but I guess it depends on executions

Fuck. No

  • One-night Stand. Not really my thing tbh
  • Domestic. No thank you, I actively avoid this trope.
  • Secret Identity. That’s a no for me
  • Love Triangle. I HATE love triangles with a PASSION, if I see one I will automatically stop reading. I cant.
  • PWP. NOPE, I like having some type of plot in my reading, thank you.
  • Friends with Benefits. Really not my thing, I generally avoid this trope
  • Nurse Back to Health. Not interested

I really enjoyed making this Tier Ranking, please feel free to try it yourselves!

Thank you for reading!
