Let's just say I took a quiz saying "Who do you ship with who in the love triangle?" I saw Throne of Glass and it said Chaol, Dorian and Rowan and I was like OOH who's Rowan?? Let's just say the rest is history.

One of my friends started reading Divergent. She now refuses to read Allegiant due to spoilers.

I like to think of the so-called love triangle in the Throne of Glass series as more of a love pentagon.
