It is without a doubt that Young Adult is my favorite genre of book to read. That is to say that I do not read any fantasy/dystopian or horror books. I mostly focus on contemporary. I only really enjoy books that have a realistic aspect to them, hence why I dislike other genres such as fantasy ect. I am aware that the most enjoyed YA books include this genre. Books such a ‘Red Queen’ are ones I want to enjoy due to their popularity, but I know it’s not for me. Sometimes I wish I was more ordinary, then my library would be much broader!
This particularity reduces the amount of books for me out there to read, and I feel like I have read most from this genre already. I read on average 100 books a year, and only this year I have struggled to find new books of my favorite genre to enjoy. This will be the first year in the past 5 that I will not reach my 100 book goal. I simply can’t find any more YA. My local library has a YA section, but is filled with mostly fantasy. Where is the contemporary??
I am not a teenager, I should be looking into more ‘adult’ books to enjoy, seeing as I have exhausted the young adult. But… I enjoy young adult so much that I’m not ready to move on. YA is just a target so a company can get an audience. There is no age on books. Read whatever you wish! It isn’t immature to read a genre not targeted towards you.
I love reading, adore it! I’ve lost my passion this year, I want it back. My usual slump tips aren’t helping, any suggestions? I’m thinking of rereading my favorite YA books in an attempt to re-spark my passion.
