1. Must be a main character
2. Must not die
3. Their orientation isn't just a side thing

I don't know if it's YA, it might not be, but I'm obsessed with Call Me By Your Name. I like how there isn't that ridiculous business of only being with one person your whole
live and how the jealousy isn't possessive or toxic. I need more incredible books like that...

Ryann (goodreadscomsgt_uwu) | 11 comments Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan was a pretty good read! I remember really enjoying it, plus I remember being relieved that there was no stupid love triangle.

Love geometry is the stupidest thing ever. LOVE IS NOT A TRIANGLE, PEOPLE.

@Petite Draig
I agree. I hate when people are like "I will love you forever and always and we shall never be apart." Love has its ups and downs....

The Song of Achilles and Adam Silvera books like They Both Die at the end are good
