Why do I love YA? For me it’s an escape from reality. You get to live through someone else’s life. Experience things that aren’t even necessarily possible. Learn new things, in a way make new friends, and have fictional crushes.
Growing up I had a lot of doctor’s appointments, doctors telling me I can’t do this and I can’t do that. Reading made it so I could do anything! Reading is something I’ve done for as long as I can remember and something I will continue to do until the day I’m no longer here. I’ve always had a book or two with me or around so that I could pick it up and continue where I left off. May be why I can read so many books at one time.
Who knows? I had imaginary friends and always had a large imagination. In a way reading is someone else’s imagination. It’s fascinating to see where other people go in their minds.
YA is an almost never-ending genre. There is something for almost everyone. Contemporary, Romance-ish, Paranormal, Thriller, Exc.
I love many different genre, and authors. Some of my favorite things to read would be paranormal, re-telling’s, mythology based, and books that pull on your heart strings. I love a book that can really make me feel for the character or feel for the situation. So in a way…I guess you would say sad books or books with extremely emotional scenes. I love love love happy endings. I am a girl especially at heart. So I always love a good fairy tale.
YA is something most people cling to. Most everyone wants to stay a kid or prolong their teenage years. Why not do that through reading?
