I haven't done one of these in a while, but I was inspired today, so I'm reviving this meme again!
I don't like
That love triangles have made me paranoid.
My fear of whether or not a love triangle is coming (!!!) constantly gets in the way of my enjoyment of a book. I'm always stressed out about this to a ridiculous degree. I've resorted to looking up spoilers and confirming with readers whether a book/series is safe or not. Despite this, sometimes I spend the whole time I'm reading, worrying that a love triangle is coming, and it pulls me out of a story. I get so frustrated with myself when a triangle doesn't materialize and all my worries are for naught!
I'm not sure how to make this less of a stressor for me, as it has come directly from bad experiences. Times when I wasn't prepared for the negative impact a triangle would have on my reading enjoyment. I am a very emotional reader, and I will do anything to avoid this happening again! I truly can't stand love triangles, and I don't think that part of me is going to go away any time soon. I'm also certain triangles aren't leaving YA any time soon either. So we are at an impasse.
I wish all publishers labeled their series as having love triangles or not.
This promo from Random House is very helpful!
THANK YOU to everyone who looks out for triangles for me. Thanks to anyone who has talked me down when I've read one. Or been patient with me when I've asked annoying questions about a book I can't decide if I want to read or not. I am so so grateful to be part of this community, and to have found friends who dislike triangles as much (or more!) than I do. I'm equally thankful for those of you who like love triangles, and still accept that this is part of me. You are all the BEST!
Also, I've been reading, reading, but don't seem to have much to post. I'm not sure why? Actually, it's because I've been picking up a lot of 2015 releases and not wanting to review them yet. December is crazy for me, so I might be more sporadic about posting - or as sporadic as I've been. But I am around and love you all!
I want to hear from you!
What do you dislike about love triangles?
Any advice you can offer me about my love triangle paranoia?
