This week’s prompt is…
Top 5 Hate-to-Love romances
Ok seriously, this week’s prompt was “hate to love ships” … that was the wording … no explanation at all. So, my brain automatically went into a tailspin of “what does this mean” and “but there are multiple interpretations” and so I decided to interpret two ways with two separate Top 5 Wednesday posts this week. See my other post for this week HERE.
For this post, I listed my top 5 favorite romances that started out as hate and grew into love (which by the way is one of my favorite tropes of all time!)
In my other post, I listed my favorite ships that either make me feel guilty for shipping them because they are oh-so-wrong or almost no one else ships them but me. My guilty pleasure ships if you will. You can find that post HERE.
Hate-to-Love just has that special tension and emotion that I cannot get enough of! And usually it lends itself well to broken characters, characters with a shady backstory, or epic misunderstandings. All of these make me FEEL FEELINGS and I love it so much! I honestly have about a million examples of this but I have narrowed it down to a 5.
These will be listed in random order
