This week's Best/Worst topic is:
Best/Worst Love Triangles
What I'm Drinking:
Starbucks NEW! Caramel Flan Latte
Oh love triangles! One of the bookish things we love to hate. The best love triangles are the ones that make you the most crazy. How do you choose between two incredible, sexy, sweet guys? Unfortunatly, I can't say I've ever had this issue in real life but I'm living vicariously through these book heroines and I feel their angst. However, there are those "love triangles" where there's no question and no contest on who the right guy is and then that begs the question on whether or not it's a true love triangle. Here are my picks for best and worst love triangle. What do you think?
BEST: The Fate Series by Heather Lyons
Have you met Jonah and Kellan Whitecomb yet? That's right ladies, TWINS! Different as night and day but both equally desirable and just when I think I've made my choice, I'm sent reeling back to the beginning of indecision. This is hands down the BEST love triangle I have ever read and I've never been more emotionally invested or experienced such heart-wrenching moments as I have in this series.
Honorable Mentions: The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare, Daynight by Megan Thomason
WORST: The Matched Trilogy by Ally Condie
Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the Matched Trilogy and I liked both guys involved in the triangle. However, for me, the triangle fell a little flat. I don't want to say too much so as not to ruin anything for those that haven't read it but my reason for picking it involves the fact that I didn't feel like there was ever a question on who she should pick. I won't say whether or not she picked the "right" guy because I know this is one a lot of people differ on opinions but it just felt like it was all a bit one-sided.
Honorable Mentions: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, The Selection by Kiera Cass
Agree? Disagree? What are some of your faves or not so much?
