Adults who Read YA

I am an adult who reads young adult books. For some reason people think this is weird. I wouldn’t have known this was the case unless I read blogs. There are posts all over about how weird it is that that young adults novels are not being read solely by young adults. There’s even a hashtag for it #whyadultsreadYA. Ridiculous-ness. Anyway, there’s a great article about an adult who is addicted to YA.

“Most of these books are shorter and sell at a lower price point than comparable adult offerings, and there are YA authors who seem able to churn them out almost yearly, so the momentum of buy-read-buy-read-buy can continue unabated. I can’t be blamed for my actions.”

That’s her practical reason. But that’s not really why we do it. Read the full article to find out more.
