That's right you heard me!  After some minor issues and a few bumps #YABookChat
is back on track! Tomorrow Wednesday 29 @9pm EST on twitter. What better way to come 
back than to chat something we all love or love to hate... The Love Triangle. 
I figured this picture is probably the most recognized love triangle out there right now.  I 
mean when someone says love triangle people think Bella, Edward and Jacob before all others.  
Depending on who you are you either love or hate it.  Many people got out of reading slumps
 with this series and love it but there are many out there that would argue that it is horrible.  
This is really what it comes down to.  Love it? Hate it?

Love triangles have been around for longer than most people realize.  It's not like Twilight was the
first to do this.  Look back to William Shakespeare and A Midsummer Nights Dream: 
 Hermia loves Lysander, but her father wants her to marry Demetrius. Lysander and Demetrius both love Hermia. That's before you throw in where they both decide that they are in love with Helena but 
that isn't really by their own choice. 

What about everyone's favorite series The Mortal Instruments?  That has one of the BIGGEST 
triangles going. Clary falls for Jace. Long time best friend Simon loves Clary, but 
 Clary doesn't see it. Alec has a crush on Jace, who doesn't find out at all. Simon 
has  a crush on Isabelle, Alec's sister. By the end of the first book, Jace has fallen for Clary 
as well.  To be honest I could keep going but I think most of you know the story
or get the point by now.

The difference seems to be in how it is written and who is reading it.  Take me for example, I 
am a SUCKER for love triangles.  I'm not too picky on how they are written for the most part.
However the one thing that gets to me is when the girl/guy changes their mind when the person
is right in front of them and the other is away but switches when the other comes back and so
forth.  I get the being torn between 2 or more guys  for specific reasons but when the only 
reason the decision changes is based on the fact that the person is in front of them or
not, it makes me want to scream!! 

Basically I want to know what makes a triangle for you?
What is your fav triangle?
What one makes you want to scream and maybe throw the book?
How do you deal with them if you don't like them?
Do they make or break the books?

Please spread the word about this chat!! Also I am giving away as a thanks for sticking
with me and celebrate the love triangle with a giveaway!!  I will be giving away a copy
of Kailin Gow's Pulse.  Yes there is a love triangle and the boys are totally swoon

will be given to those that attend the chat and also for those that bring more 
people to the chat.  YES it will be INTERNATIONAL as many of you join the

  1. I will not be there but being the Twilight die hard fan that I am its Edward, Bella and Jacob oh how could you pick but my pick Edward of course!!! Love you Edward shout out!!! Cute Post love it

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. I'm not sure if I will be there. Anyway, my favorite is the love triangle between Tessa, Will and Jem of the Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. I like Will but I'm on Team Jem! I'm attracted to guys who are beautiful in their ways though they seem weak and are dying, but still I find them amazing! My least favorite? I think it's the love triangle between Lena, Alex and Julian of Delirium Series by Lauren Oliver. I want ALex!!! Alex only. Alex only. lol. But still, I'm not sure if this is my least cause I haven't read Pandemonium and not yet encountering Julian...They said he's like Jem. -.- Btw, Thanks for the giveaway - Flord Naezel

  4. If I can be there I totally will be. I have a feeling this chat will be a very good one. As for my favorite triangle, I'm just getting to read The Infernal Devices series & I really like the Will, Jem, Tessa triangle. As for the Twilight triangle. It bugged the heck out of me even though I love the books. I was team Jacob all the way though. It always bothered me how Bella treated him.


    Fav: Sadly, I don't like love triangles...at least none I had read so far.

    Least: Twilight...*shivers*

  6. I hate the Twilight Love triangle. For me there was never any question about which guy she was going to pick.

    I much prefer when I really don't know what's going to happen and how the pairings are going to be in the end. And for some reason I'm mental blanking right now.

  7. I'll be in the chat! I can go either way on love triangles. It really depends on how they're written, and why they exist.

  8. Will be there ..or already am.

    Best love triangle? Loki and finn for Wendy! Trylle trilogy by Amanda Hocking

  9. I'm there! Best? I agree with Monica Loki Finn and Wendy
    worst IDK

  10. Oh btw I'm under my blog google I'm on twitter as @tobi_helton

  11. I would have to say my favorite is in Anew by Chelsea Fine. She did it so well that I wasn't upset about it. My least favorite...I don't know. I didn't really like it in Twilight because I felt like she settled for Jacob in New Moon. However I LOVED the series!!! haha! That probably contradicts itself.

  12. still love the twilight triangle! Not that I read much to know others lol.....

  13. No i will not be there. My fav triangle is in the Covenant series with ALex, Seth, and Aiden:))

  14. I like love triangles when they are done right. When there is a legitimate reason for why she or he likes both of the girls. And genuine heartbreak over the choice. Lust triangles do nothing for me but piss me off!
