I am drinking a fresh roasted coffee from Costa Rica with cream. What are you drinking?
I have wondered many times should I be ashamed to read Ya? I am over thirty years old and the intended audience is not that! I enjoy a good story and YA seems to offer a lot of them. So I overlook the intended age range.
Some things that I don’t like about YA is when the author has explicit sex scenes containing youth. It just creeps me out! I don’t want to read about that. I am not naive enough to think teenagers don’t have sex, I just don’t want it thrown in my face. Though YA romance doesn’t bother me. Though young love is not very realistic it is appealing.
In the end, I can’t tell you why I am drawn to YA. Does it make me feel like I am reliving my youth? A little. Honestly, I got over the age dilemma after the Twilight series. A good story is a good story no matter what the intended audience. So I have to say I got over my shame.
How do you feel about adults reading YA?
