This book is why I love Ellen Hopkins. Her writing is honest and gritty. She writes in first person, present tense, multiple POVs. She writes in gorgeous verse that jumps off the page and takes on true meaning when read different ways. She's a seriously talented writer. She has a such an ability wit...

Three women; three lives, three families – all interwoven. Hopkins makes her adult novel debut with Triangles and while I was never as blown away as I’ve been when reading her YA novels, I was still mesmerized and drawn in by her wonderfully written prose and her ability to broach tough subjects wit...

This book was interesting. I didn't exactly loved the ending, but generally the verse gave a bigger impact to the story and to the character's feelings and I really liked that.

I have a steadfast love/hate relationship with this book. I hated how some of the women cheated. No one condones cheating, but this was a part of what the book was about. It was hard for me at first to feel for the women who had cheated. I'll admit, I was prejudiced towards them completely. I did wh...

I won this book from a GoodReads first-read giveaway. When I signed up for the giveaway I had no idea that the book was in verse form. I found out that it was shortly after I won the book and that made me wary of the book. I wasn't sure if I would like how it was written. Once I started reading the ...
