YA fiction, or young adult fiction, happens to be one of my favourite genres.
I read everything, but the novels that really stay with me tend to be those that – originally, at least – were written for teenagers.
I am not, in actual fact, a teenager.
As a 23 year-old, with a real-life job and a flat, I can’t quite get away with that anymore.
However, I never stopped reading YA and I think I will still be reading it when I’m 45.
YA can sometimes get a bad rep;
that now infamous Slate article last year – where the writer told everyone they should be embarrassed for reading YA – is a prime example.
Now, finally, YA seems to be getting more of the attention it deserves;
so, if you haven’t read any since you left your teenage years behind, here’s why I think you should give it a go.
1. All Reading is Good Reading
Reading is unarguably, inherently, unquestionably a GOOD THING.
All things considered, each of us lives a relatively narrow life – because it is our life, and it will never be anyone else’s.
Without fiction, we would be a lot further away from understanding other experiences outside of our own limited set.
And that is why there is nothing more shameful than shaming people for what they read.
