Love triangles: they’re everywhere from books to television to movies and I am the worst at picking the guy who the protagonist is going to end up with. I don’t know if it’s because I instinctively root for the underdog or if I purposely want to have my heart broken. Anyway here are some popular love triangles in YA fiction and my picks and you can see for yourself how often I am or am not wrong.
The Chemical Garden series by Lauren Destafano: Linden/Rhine
Fruits Basket by Natsuki Takaya: Yuki/Tohru
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins: Peeta/Katniss
The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare: Jem/Tessa
Matched series by Ally Condie: Xander/Cassia
Ouran High School Host Club by Bisco Hatori: Kyouya/Haruhi
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi: Warren/Juliette
Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer: Edward/Bella
Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld: Zane/Tally
Some of these pairings I don’t know how they’ll end up (namely Chemical Garden, Infernal Devices, Matched, and Shatter Me), but I’m fairly certain that I picked wrong on those.
Who would you pick? Anyone else out there a total Warren or am I the only crazy one?
