This is a YA blog, no doubt about it. Pretty much YA is the only genre we review and talk about here. But what about all the other genres? How many of you out there read/review books outside of YA novels? And if so, which do you prefer, and why?
I'm a young adult, I read young adult novels. It's that plain and simple for me. When I was younger, I read novels for kids. When I was in the middle grade, I read MG books (with YA novels also). But obviously that isn't the case for others, seeing how many YA reviewers aren't actually teens. So power to the YA peeps, for making those adults never wanting to let go.
And what about graphic novels? I, for one, am a HUGE fan of manga, and probably own more manga than YA novels. I know there must be other avid manga readers out there, even if you don't review manga on your blog like some. Manga's great because there's all sorts of types out there to match whoever's desires.
YA novels are awesome because they can incorporate anything, from rabid teenage werewolves, to frothy romances, to depressing suicide stories, to high school dramas, to everything and beyond! It's a huge eclectic range that can't be defined and is always growing. Quite the beauty, no?
But I'm sure all those other genres out there have wonderful attributes also.
So what do you think? Anyone want to add in two cents?
(And yeah, if you couldn't tell, this is a random filler post. My weirdo addiction to blogging in which something must be posted every day. Maybe it's time to bring back some memes?)
