Are you ever too old to read YA?
I love YA books! But I am not a teenage, I don’t fall into the age range these books are supposed to be aimed at. I am a 25 year old woman who has a job, I have adult responsibilities, I have to think like an adult but when it comes to reading, 99% of the time I read YA books.
So is there problem with me reading YA? Because I read YA books does that make me immature as I have heard some people say, can I not cope with the depths an adult book brings. The simple answer I give is why should my age defy what I should read. There is no rule that once you hit 18 years old (when some say your now an adult) you have to stop reading the books you enjoy and start reading adult books even though I have that some people believe you do!
I have been reading YA books for many years and I am sure these are the types of books I will continue to read when I am in my 30’s, 40’s and beyond. YA books give me an escape, I love to be revel with the character in the first throes of love, to follow the characters on wild adventures we as adults are not permitted to do anymore. If it’s something I love why should I stop reading now I am an “adult”. YA gives me the freedom to escape from the responsibilities of being an adult and I hope this continues for many years. My name is Megan, and I love YA 🙂
