 "Why do you read the genre that you do?  What draws you to it?"

I love YA because it was the genre that first made me enjoy reading over a decade ago. Yes, I may be 21 now and some people feel that is a bit too old but YA (though I do read other genres as well) but I think it will continue to be my favorite genre. I am drawn to it because of content and story line. Not only  do you not have to worry as much about gore or content I would prefer not to read about but when you are younger you think differently. So many adults get caught up in their jobs and day to day life that the novels aimed at adults sometimes have something missing that I can find in YA. YA is geared towards teens and teenagers are just starting to be able to experience a lot of new emotions and trials in their life that after long enough we forget about. Reading about those trials and those emotions helps me remember that being human isn't about work or about falling in love, it is about all of the possibilities. The people we can help, the ways that we feel, never knowing what will come next because we create our own futures, etc.

By the way, I know a lot of people loved hearing about the great price deal on Forget-her-nots on Tuesday so here is another great price I found while getting myself a copy of Paper Towns:

  4. Who do I cheer for? When I follow sports at all (and that hasn’t been much lately) I follow people and teams who impress and inspire me.

    My answers are all over the map (literally!) but all perfectly understandable once explained. Follow me over to my blog and read all about it -

  6. Thanks for the follow, Emma! I'm returning the favor.

    Do you ever read historical romance? My BFF from school has published 2 and is on to her 3rd now! It's so exciting to actually know a published author! And I giggle when I think about it because she was so terrible in English class, lol!

    Little did I know, that's what editors are for!

    Have a great weekend.
