I hate the notion that readers that enjoy YA books in particular makes you an immature reader. It's a joke, many adults enjoy YA books and a wider selection. And people trashing YA books does not help, especially with certain movie adaptations like Twilight which have people judging before they even give the books a read or try. They've got this trashy childish stereotype going around and people like that anon do not help let alone give themselves any integrity.
People can be so narrow-minded and it only makes them look bad. I truly feel bad for them/that anon. Just because I blog and read a lot of YA doesn’t mean it’s the only thing I read. I also read a lot of children’s books (and YA books) because that’s the field I’m going into. It doesn’t mean I don’t read other books.
The books we think we ought to read are poky, dull and dry;
the books that we would like to read, we are ashamed to buy;
the books that people talk about, we never can recall;
and the books that people give us, oh, they’re the worst of all.
I just think she’s so great isn’t she? She is so inspiring to me and I am so grateful that she exists in the world, as someone who is authentic and who has not bent to fit any idea of what a woman should be in that kind of position. And she is so talented. I am just so happy she is around for women everywhere. It’s just fantastic.
