Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
Why do you think that the Young Adult genre is so popular with even the adult readers? Do you read YA books, yourself?
Ironically, I have been thinking the same thing myself over the past few weeks. As some of you know, I am a partner in Partners In Crime Tours, a virtual tour PR company for authors of mystery, suspense and crime novels. We have become very busy, which is a good thing, however, because of that and not wanting to over work our awesome hosts, I have been visiting a lot of blogs to read their policies to see if they might be interested in the genre we represent to send an invitation,
And I am AMAZED at how many YA blogs there are. It’s like a whole different
neighborhood, community, state, planet of blogs. I, for one, do not read YA only because I have this preconceived notion that Iwould not be able to relate to the characters or premise of the books. I have, however, like the question states, wondered why so many adults do read this genre. Am I missing out on some good reading because it is out of my comfort zone? But then I look at my TBR bookcase and think, I have enough books that are in my comfort zone just waiting patiently to be chosen to be my “current read”.
