The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, it was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by CoffeeAddictedWriter. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.
This Week’s Topic is:
What’s your opinion on love triangle plots? (submitted by Julie @ JadeSky)
I hate them.
Okay, i think that’s too short for this post…
I don’t like love triangles, never did and never will… That’s the main reason i didn’t finished reading Clockwork Princess. I have to admit Cassandra Clare was very creative on how to end that love triangle, but normally authors aren’t that creative.
It’s like, authors have no ideas on how to complicate things for a couple, so they have to bring another person to the mix so it won’t work at first and it’s extremely difficult for me to handle that. I just like my couples known from the beginning.
Ugh, a few days ago i was talking about my most hated trope (Let’s Talk Bookish | The Most Annoying Trope.) and now this one too … this is the second most hated trope in my book.
I feel like you could bring a lot of trouble to a couple without having to bring up a third wheel. It’s just that most authors feel a little too lazy or out of ideas. Why? Why would two guys or even more fall for the same girl? Is she the only one in the world? Are they too lazy to look for other gals? I know i’m treating the topic too heteronormatively, but actually most LGBT+ books have better tropes. At least the ones i’ve read.
Anyway, i’m thinking of Twilight. Why would they all fall for the most boring girl in the whole world?
I can’t stand the idea of love triangles, okay? they just really annoy me and it’s not because they always end up with the guy i hate, although it is part of it. It’s just… really annoying and i don’t enjoy reading about people who cannot make up their mind about who they like.
I feel like i’m coming too harsh on this topic, but it is what it is.
This kind of books bring me a lot of discomfort and unnecessary pain.
So i don’t like them.
