RTW: Team Threesomes!

Contest Reminder: You have a few more hours left to title our NaNo projects...and get some money and a book out of it. Click here for the deets.

Reading Song of the Day: 'Threesome" by Fenix TX (check it out on our Rock With Us Tab)

It's Wednesday, and the girls at YA Highway found a way to make "hump day" less annoying. It took us a second to come up with an answer to this week's question. When we saw literary cliches + favorite we automatically thought-- that's impossible! But we did manage to come up with one. So, our fave literary cliche is, drum roll please...


The always hated, always frustrating, but absolutely neccessary love triangle.

Yes, we went there. We both have our "teams" and we actually get in heated debates about why our guy is better than the other. It may be a cliche to have the girl who has to choose between two boys who are in love with her but come on, what girl DOESN'T want two people to be in love with her???

Here are some of our fave love triangles:

Edward + Bella + Jacob
Peeta + Katniss + Gale
Bill + Sookie +Eric (Sookie Stackhouse Novels)
Daniel + Luce + Cam (Fallen Trilogy by Lauren Kate)
Travis + Mary + Harry...+ Cass (The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan)
Sarah + Ryan + Brianna (The Unwritten Rule by Elizabeth Scott)
Stefan + Elena + Damon (The Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith)

Just in case you were wondering ( I know you're dying to know) where we stand when it comes to the most popular love triange out there... I'm Team Edward--more like Team RPatz, and Pam is team Jacob.
Now that we've bared our souls tell us, what's your fave love triangle and what's your fave literary cliche?

That's definitely a great one!

I have no idea who the people in any of those love triangles are (I know, sad). Do soap operas count? I have a whole bunch of favorite love triangles on the Young and the Restless! LOL! :)

My fave triangle? Stefan/Elena/Damon, but only on the show. The book version is a little annoying.

love it.
I can't think of any good triangles off-hand.
The FOHAT triangle (technically a love square?) bummed me out. Especially b/c when Mary and what's his name were trapped in the house together, they didn't seem that into each other after all. All that build up, for a big letdown. I kept thinking: you people HAVE to sleep together before the Zombies get you! Come on!

The Edward-Bella-Jacob one is pretty definitive in my opinion, but there are also several HP love triangles that Sarah Enni mentioned on her RTW post today (though none of them come close to the E-B-J triangle).

Definitely a great pick. My fave love triangle? Katniss-Peeta-Gale (Gale FTW!)

I do get why triangles work, and I don't get tired of them, but I mostly just feel sorry for the guy I know/think is going to lose out, like Jacob and Gale. Gale esp...but maybe that's because I am, secretly, team Gale.
