YA Love Triangle Week Introduction

It's finally here!

After a bunch of planning and voting and changing things around, the week has finally come! 20 amazing guest posters have argued their cases for their favorite guy and now it's time for everyone to find out why! I'm excited to be sharing this with everyone else. I thought I'd do my part in all this and tell a little origin story.

The Origin:

It all started with this little book called Nightshade. Have you heard of it? In most books, I can usually pick a side but this book turned my world upside down. The triangle was so balanced and the boys were so yummy, there was NO WAY for me to figure out who I loved on my own. So I thought to myself, "I wonder how everyone else choose?" and then decided to find out. I think love triangles are such a fun and fascinating part of the YA genre and I'm so happy to be devoting an entire week to them and pulling people from all around the blogger community together for a common cause. So let the good times roll!

  1. This is exciting! I'm so glad you thought of this ... and I'm the same way with Nightshade, there's no way I could possibly choose!!

  2. Looks like a great schedule - can't wait! :]

  3. This is so cool, Amber! I'm excited to see more :)


Thinking of writing something below? Well, that's why you are awesome! I always love feedback!

This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
