This weeks topic is: The Popularity of YA Books
Maybe I’m wrong but I feel like young adult books is one of the most read genres. Young adult books are marketed for people between the ages of 13 to 18; however, there are so many more adults reading YA. I wanted to talk about why I think YA is such a well read genre.
It’s fun and exciting! I feel like YA is the best of both worlds. We get the fun adventures like middle grade books but we also get some romance in there like adult books. We also get to go on some epic adventures in the fantasy stories!
They’re light and fluffy. Okay, maybe not always fluffy. Adult books deal with too many adult problems: divorce, kids, job, money. I don’t want to be reminded of my adulthood so I like to escape into YA and read about non adult like problems.
Overall, I think young adult are just fun books. It’s fun reading about stuff that reminds me of going to high school and experiencing love for the first time or feeling like an outcast. They can be so empowering. Plus a human that gets sucked into a magical world? Sign me up!
