This week’s musing asks…Why do you think that the Young Adult genre is so popular with even the adult readers? Do you read YA books, yourself?
I think that the YA genre is popular because it is easy to read, which makes it incredibly easy to slip into another world. With YA, it is easy to pick up and put down, which fits perfectly in our busy lives and doesn't require the attention, analyzing or concentration that classic literature or poetry requires. I have read many YA books in the past, but at this point, I have been focusing more on the classics and poetry because I feel that I've ready too many YA books so I need to "retrain" myself to analyze.
