Okay, folks. Today we're gonna talk about something I've been seeing a lot lately. YA books seem to be flooded with this particular situation, and while I enjoy it at times, there are some stories that could work better without it.
This week's trend question: what do you think about love triangles?
Edward: "She's mine, Doggie Breath! All mine!"
Jacob: "No way, Glo Stick! She's mine, beeyatch!!!"
Bella: "Uh... I'll just... stand over here and pout for a while..."
Confession: I love me some good romantic tension. But creating a love triangle for the sake of making the main character's life more complicated just doesn't do it for me. There has to be depth in her turmoil, a legit reason she can't choose between two guys. And the two guys need to be three-dimensional, well-crafted characters, not just eye candy.
Thinking someone is hot isn't enough for anyone to fall in love, my friends. Just sayin'.
What say you, blogging buddies? Love em or hate em?
