I think that love triangle has to have a reason for being there. When I read Twilight, I was bored by the love triangle because I felt like Bella had very little reason to hang on to Jacob like she did for a while. A lot of books make it obvious which person is preferred, which is okay sometimes, but if it's really obvious it only upsets me when a the character in the center basically says "lets not hurt feelings okay can't choose favorites".
At least we always knew that Bella liked Edward better.
Oh my god, did Livia just say something positive about Twilight? Is the apocalypse coming?
