[Meme] Musing Monday [#13]

Hosted by Should Be Reading



Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

A: Love triangles. I am officially over love triangles. This is mostly because if a character doesn't choose who I think they should be with, I lose interest. I'm sort of nervous about Born Wicked because it's there is a very clear love triangle going on and if Cate doesn't pick who I think she should pick I will be DEVASTATED.

Also, Cassandra Clare (I'm pretty sure it was Cassandra Clare) made a pretty good point. Why are they called "Love Triangles?" It's not a triangle, if it was a triangle that would make things more interesting, but it's more like two boys (usually) set one girl as their target and both vie for her attention. It's a "V" and it's getting very formulaic. Why can't there just be one boy? Is it to make a trilogy more interesting?

How do you feel about love "triangles?" Love em? Hate em? Indifferent? Let me know below!

  1. I was over love triangles before I ever read my first one. LOL Unfortunately, they seem to be here to stay, so I now take them with a grain of salt. As long as they don't completely take over the story, I don't mind them overly much.

    1. LOL I tolerated them at first, but now they seem to be in every.single.YA book.

      Lesigh, I think I need to add more New Adult books into my mix-I haven't seen as many triangles in those.
