Welcome, welcome to Bookish Banter! This is a weekly blog post where I talk about bookish topics with Elizabeth of Redhead Reader and Ellen of Pottermorebooks!
This week's discussion is...
Love triangles... Love em or hate em?
After my long love affair of reading books and seeing the ever popular love triangle played over and over and over, honestly, I'm exhausted even thinking about a love triangle at the moment. At first, it was exciting, but also disappointing. I loved rooting for a certain guy, but when I sit here and think about it, how the hell does this even come about? I'm lucky if I have one guy vying for my affection. How did one girl get two AND can't decide between them? It's just not realistic. Also, looking back, I can think of a few trilogies where the guy I was rooting for the MC to pick, didn't get picked, and quite frankly, it just pissed me off completely. It pisses me off that that pissed me off too, because a book shouldn't solely be about which boy to pick, but a lot of the plot(s) of said books were. I'm so thankful that the love triangle monster seems to be on the downhill slide, because there for a while, it seemed like every single book had one. I don't want to have to choose what team I'm on for every single book I read, and then find out that one of my closest friends is on the opposite team, because it makes me look at that person differently (and want to smack them senseless!!!!)
Long story short, I'm not too big of a fan of love triangles.
In other news, I'm extremely excited to announce that the Dark Days Summer Tour for Harper Teen is coming to Oklahoma City THIS Wednesday!! YAY! Authors hardly ever make their way to the sweeping plains, so I'm incredibly happy that I have the chance to meet Danielle Paige, Kelley Armstrong, Kimberly Derting, and Keira Cass! Also, I just found out that I get to meet my first book blogging friend IRL at this signing too!! *waves at Rachel from The NerdHerd Reads*
Let me know if you plan on attending the tour in Oklahoma too so we can meet! Don't be shy. Tell me hi!! :)
I plan on doing an Event Recap for the blog, but since this is my first time doing anything of the sort, my question is 'Do you have any questions you want me to ask these authors?' Let me know, and I'll make a list of all the questions, and post their answers here! I also plan on snagging something special to giveaway too, and there will be an extra entry in the rafflecopter for those of you who ask a question before Wednesday evening, so BE SURE TO ASK A QUESTION!!! :)
What about YOU?
