FRIDAY'S FINISH IT OR FORGET IT
Okay so it's no secret I enjoyed Unearthly, the first book in the series. Partly because of Tucker. Scratch that. All because of Tucker. I wish I had myself a tall cowboy, and in a way I guess I do (I've got myself hitched to a wrangler of classic cars instead of horses...which happens to be taking up my side yard). Anyway I was relieved to say the least when Clara decided she was in love with Tucker (finally a girl with brains)! But then I started Hallowed and it became painfully clear very quickly that the love triangle was back. How utterly annoying. I thought we worked through this Clara! Why, why do YA authors think we need a love triangle? Clara clearly hasn't gotten rid of her obsession with Christian (which feels like a physical attraction because clearly they don't have much to talk about when they are together ). So, with only 100 pages into Hallowed I put it down. Clara and her indecisiveness was driving me up the wall and in the process Tucker was starting to turn into a pouting girl. No thank you. I prefer to remember Tucker the way he was from Unearthly. So what do you guys think? Is trudging through this love triangle worth it in the end? Or should I move on?
