According to tvtropes.org, a trope "is a storytelling device or convention, a shortcut for describing situations the storyteller can reasonably assume the audience will recognize.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

Becky’s Tantalizing Thursday: JUDGE’S GIRLS

I’m caught! I want to read the remainder of the Judge’s Girls. I love contemporary women’s fiction. Maya is a strong female character and the complicated relationship with the other family female characters after a devastating loss makes for good reading. It will be released on October 27, 2020. Put it on your TBR list!
