Weekend Question?







Weekend Question is a fun way to get to know my followers. I enjoy knowing little tidbits of your lives.


Weekend Question?


Do you read books outside of your age group?


  Well my answer is pretty obvious.  I'm 29 and I read a lot of YA. WHAT Almost 30. GASP.  LOL.  I do find it hard to find people who enjoy "easy reading" YA books. I get a lot of strange looks. I just find YA relaxing verses on edge. I don't really care for the bubble gum YA though. I do read adult books, but I don't care for books that require a ton of concentration. HEY, I have a 3 yr old I'm lucky I can read at all. I just like to escape for a little while into the pages.





So What about you?

I will sometimes read YA, but for the most part, I read adult fiction of all kinds. I am just starting my foray into YA, and I am finding out that it can be just as engrossing and fun as books written for adults.

I used to read just adult chick lit, but a couple years ago I dove head first into YA and only occasionally revert back for a good one.

Well all I read now is YA and I'm in my 20s so I guess I do.

Nina said...

Yep I do. I'm in my twenties too and I love reading YA books. ;) lol.

I most definitely read outside my age group. I am 34 and most of what I read is YA too. Although I can make the claim I do it because of my job, I know the truth is because I love YA fiction. (My 3 year old doesn't want me to read anything for myself--he only wants me to read to him! So I guess I could say I read a lot of children's books too!)

I do read YA and honestly I love picture books :) They are cute. I do not read them but when I was temping at a kindergarten I sure enjoyed reading them to the kids

I read all over the spectrum but os course at 49 reading about teens and 20 somethings I am absolutely reading outside my age group, and loving every minute of it as can relive my youth and see how much smarter and responsible young people are in books as compared to in real life!

Crystal said...

Definitely and I always have. I read Stephen King and V.C. Andrews (before the ghost writer) when I was in my early teens. And now that I am in my mid-30s, I read lots of YA. I also read middle grade books with my kids and still enjoy picture books with my 6-year-old. Pretty much if it is a book and it interests me I will read it no matter the intended age group :)

Have a great rest of the weekend.

I've always read out of my age Group. I was reading Adult books when I was a teen.. and now I'm adult (Lol well supposed to be) I'm reading YA! I do read middle grade. And I read adult books too when I need a little .. um.. more complications and er.. other things lol that YA doesn't quite cover!

I do feel awkward sometimes standing in the Teen section at the bookstore right next to .. well. teenagers lol.

oh.. for the record.. I'm 26

I read all kinds of things, from many genres, and designed for many age groups. I really don't care about demographics. If I think it looks interesting/fun/enjoyable, I read it. I read horror, romance, thrillers, comedies, manga, young adult, even children's books (of course those are usually with my daughter, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy them!)

Andra said...

Oh I've pretty much always read outside of my age group...When I was in elementary school, I was reading at a high school level and on more than one occasion got asked if I was "lost" in the adult section of our library...

I read adult fiction a lot...but for whatever reason, my favorite books and series of all time seem to fall into the YA category...My top two series are both YA fiction :)

TheBookGirl said...

I read very little YA; mostly adult fiction and non-fiction and once in a while a middle grade book that I'm sent (I love the Nate books).
That said, I just saw a YA book featured on a blog this morning that I very much want to read -- Girl Wonder -- so I guess the moral is never say never, lol.

Adelina Priddis said...

All the time. I read mostly picture books :) YA is great though, some of the best books are YA.

Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com said...

Alllllllllll the time. I'm really bad about sticking to certain genres and age groups. I run the gambit.

Linda: By the Book said...

Most of the time I'll read YA fiction, but sometimes I'll read urban fantasy or paranormal romance. Heck, I'll read anything with a little bit of romance and action. Still, some of the best books are in YA and it's something I can relate to.
