I will always be grateful for the YA genre because if I hadn’t read the Twilight series all those years ago, I wouldn’t be reading like I do now. Nor would I have made the friends and connections I have now. There may be people out there who shy away from reading YA books or feel like it’s inappropriate for them. My thought is that just because the main characters in the book are younger doesn’t mean that I can’t relate to them or understand their perspective.
If an author writes a great story, I am in no matter what the age of the characters. I recently read two amazing books that are from the YA genre. The heroines in these books are unique and really stood out for me. I could totally relate to them because they were strong, curious, and intelligent.
