So I know insta-love is something that's been talked about to no end with some people loving it and others hating it. I decided that it was time to give my opinion on it.
So if you don't know what insta-love is, it's pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Two people meet eyes across a room and they're instantly in love. I mean who hasn't heard of a love story like this. But I'm afraid for me it just isn't believable. Call me a cynic but I believe you actually have to know a person before you love them. Sure you could be attracted to someone and even maybe have a crush on them but LOVE is a completely different thing.
The thing that bothers me the most about insta-love is that there's this whole 'we were fated to be together' crap. Which ya'no if you believe in fate and all that then that's totally your opinion but I don't. I believe we make our own choices and fate has nothing to do with the outcome. SO SO SO many YA books fall into the insta-love trap and it's so annoying for me. If a book has insta-love in it but it isn't the main story line (i.e. it's a fantasy book with underlying insta-love) then I can power through and handle it, but if it's a romance book that has insta-love then I'm out. It's just not realistic for me, it makes me feel like the characters have just been thrown together, there's no real connection there.
Anyway, I know this was just a rambled post but I think it's a topic that a lot of people have an opinion on, some people actually really love it, but it's just not for me.
Thanks for reading, let me know your thoughts on insta-love? Have you read any books that have insta-love in but you still love?
