So, I'm reading Fuse, which is the sequel to Pure. It's YA, written in third person present tense, which makes me want to set things on fire, but the story is really good, so I deal with it.
However - we now have not one, but TWO love triangles. Neither of them add anything to the book except otherwise strong characters dithering and being angsty. But my biggest snark is the one couple had sex. That's not the snark (I actually thought the scene was well written and tasteful - not an easy task). My snark is that OF COURSE she's pregnant. Because you can't have sex in YA novel without consequences, right? My other snark is that she has only been separated from boy for a month, but already knows because she's missed "several" periods. THEY HAD SEX ONCE. RIGHT BEFORE HE LEFT. How often are her periods?
Gah. Oh, and this book is a trilogy, so I expect the third book to be godawful. Like all YA trilogies.
