Reading young adult books with love triangles is pretty common place. They’re not in every book, but in maybe one every five books, a love triangle will appear.
Although I know how some of you feel about them from the comments you leave , but when it comes to these romantic dramas, what do you really think?
Books with Love Triangles – Yay or Nay
This got me thinking about the nature of love triangles, and I’m really curious to hear your opinion. Here are my questions:
- How do you feel about love triangles in general? Do they annoy you or do you feel indifferent?
- What love triangles you have you hated and loved?
- Have you ever refused to read a book with this romantic twist in it? Why?
- What do you think the future of love triangles are: here to stay or are they a passing fad?
For me, I think it depends on the book. Some books like Born Wicked have a certain feel to them that doesn’t drive me insane.
I think it comes down to the person in the middle of the triangle. Are they weak-willed and wishy-washy (cough cough Jacinda from Firelight) or do they know who “the one” is but are forced in a tight spot?
Another book that has a crazy love triangle is Matched. I’m sort of in between on this one. Half the time, I’m like CHOOSE ALREADY but the other half I’m loving the tension.
I’d love to hear your thoughts! Please tell me what you think about love triangles in the comments!
