Once Upon A Read-A-Thon Mini Challenge #2
This mini challenge is hosted by: YA Bliss.
Her challenge is to name our top 3 love triangles.
On her blog post she put that she thinks what makes a really good love triangle is when you really just cannot decide between both characters. That it is not just an obvious decision for the person having to do the choosing. I completely agree with this, though that is not usually how my mind works. Even if it is not an obvious choice who she (I use she because girl deciding between 2 guys is the only kind of love triangle I have read) should pick, I pick one guy and stick with him. I am very dedicated to the team I choose to be on. It is a very VERY rare thing for me to change sides. So since I am that way, what makes it a good love triangle for me is even if I have picked a guy to root for, I question it sometimes and see why the girl is having such a hard time deciding.
This took me a little while to think up three. I love books that have love triangles so I have read so many books with love triangles it's hard to narrow it down to three. I know, I know, so many people are sick of them, but I just can't help it. I like drama in my books.
But the second I read the challenge, I know who my first favorite love triangle would be.
Dimitri, Rose, and Adrian from the Vampire Academy series. The second that we meet Dimitri in Vampire Academy I was hooked. He had my literary heart.
Then came Adrian. He took me by total surprise. Richelle Mead actually almost got me to switch to Team Adrian...but then I decided against it. I just loved Dimitri wayyyy too much.
The next one I thought of was: Luc, Franny, and Gabe from Personal Demons. You would think that Luc being a demon and Gabe being all angelic it would be an easy choice right? Wrong. Luc is smoldering (no pun intended...okay...maybe a little one was) and Gabe is just all kinds of perfect. I went back and forth with this one for a little bit, but finally decided I like Gabe best. I guess I'm just an angel kind of girl.
And the last one I decided on is:
Jack, Alice, and Peter from My Blood Approves. Though I wanted to crawl into this story and steal Peter for myself the second he was introduced...I can definitely see the pickle that Alice is in when trying to decide between these two great guys. Jack is fun and adventurous while Peter is soulful and has emerald green eyes that you could lose yourself in forever.
Oh the decisions.
So those are my three.
Honorable mentions go to:
Peeta, Katniss, and Gale from Hunger Games.
Ren, Calla, and Shay from Nightshade.
Tucker, Clara, and Christian from Unearthly.
Who are your three favorite love triangles?
