Young Adult fiction is hugely popular at the moment, with books like the Harry Potter series, His Dark Materials and The Hunger Games achieving massive success among young and old alike, being made into blockbuster movies (some more successfully than others) and becoming a huge part of cultural consciousness.
What we would like to know this week, is:
Do YOU Read YA?
YA books are, of course, written for “young adults”, which is generally considered to be between the ages of 12 and 18 (although YA books have certainly been marketed to readers slightly younger or older than this range).
But why should this stop adults from reading them? Of course, it doesn’t, which is why some of these books have sold so many copies. YA literature, while marketed at a younger audience, can often be better at exploring and explaining some very real and meaningful “adult” situations.
If you do read YA, please let us know what your favourites are and why you like them. And if you don’t read YA, we’d love to hear why!
Please let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!
