Hey guys! I got so excited when I saw this topic because I remember writing a post earlier in the year discussing trends I hate but now we get to praise some books for these very tropes/trends! Admittedly, I got really excited when I was writing this post and went into a lot of detail! I included a crime thriller series so I didn’t feel like I was just attacking YA books because they get a lot of stick for tropes! I really hope you enjoy! By the way, this post will have spoilers!
Love Triangle: The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
I despise love triangles and I grimaced when I realised The Infernal Devices had a love triangle. I was fully preparing myself for three books of eye-rolling and groaning but I was actually very surprised. This is probably the only love triangle I have come across that I actually liked and it didn’t tear apart the fans. Will, Tessa and Jem have such a strong bond and it’s so easy to love all three of them that the love triangle honestly does not matter. Personally, I am a fan of Jem and Tessa together but I was happy for Will too! Both fans got what they wanted and I can’t believe Cassie actually managed to pull that off. These three are some of my favourite characters, especially Jem. I’m so glad the love triangle didn’t taint my adoration for these characters.
