Clary/Simon/Jace vs Bella/Jacob/Edward

Love Triangles seem to feature in many, many YA books. The Uglies series would have been nowhere near as interesting without Tally having to make the choice between Zane and David (still rooting for Zane-la, by the way).

But probably the most important Love Triangle in any YA fiction is the one between Bella, Jacob and Edward in the Twilight series. Still, why do I get the feeling that the one between Clary, Simon and Jace in The Mortal Instuments series is more… interesting?

Here’s a list (yes, I like lists):

 – Jace is much hotter than Edward. He’s just as supernaturally strong/fast/good looking, with the added bonus – he’s an annoying, sarcastic smart-arse. Edward is so polite it’s irritating. And you know how fawesome Jace has to be when I’m not rooting for the vampire.

 – Simon actually has a chance. Yeah, Jacob? No matter how old he is physically, mentally he’s about two years younger than Bella. And while Jacob is her best friend and all, I’m sure the bond between Clary and Simon is stronger.

 – Clary is way more interesting. At times, Bella is really pathetic. Oh Jacob, I can’t choose between you and Edward, even though I know I’ll choose Edward over you.

The whole Bella/Jacob/Edward LT was resolved really sloppily in Breaking Dawn. Imprinting on your best friend/crush’s daughter? There is something just vaguely creepy about that…

It’ll be interesting to see how things turn out in City of Glass.

    Ya, that imprint thing was pretty creepy. Tho it was SO funny reading Bella’s reaction to that 🙂
    And Edward is way too polite. That’s why I like Emmett best out of the Cullen guys.

    I haven’t read The Mortal Instruments, so I’ll go do that, it sounds good.
