YA Fiction and the Adult Woman

July 6, 2015

So I'm older.  A lady never tells how old.  And I am addicted to YA fiction.  Particularly fantasy or sci-fi romances.  Why?  I read books designed for older women.  I also read a lot of straight up Sci-Fi.  I read some new adult too.  But YA is so highly addictive.  Why? 


I'd say I love it mostly because I remember those feelings of being a teenage girl in love.  I was an all in kind of crush girl.  I fell madly and deeply.  Often immediately.  Romance novels were a favorite of mine even then and I suppose that colored my feelings.  When I read a YA novel I am transported back to when I was younger.  When I'd stay up all night long just to finish something that struck my fancy.  I still do that on occasion, but I have to get up and work now, so I don't have as many all nighters.  I know I'm not the only 'old lady' out there reading YA, so at least I don't feel as weird as I probably should.  And there are so many great YA authors out there that I love.  Richelle Mead, Jennifer L. Armentrout, Sarah J. Maas and Melissa Marr just to name a few.  I can only aspire to be as good and well loved as them.  For now, I'll just revel in the yummy YA goodness out there and write what I hope is good until I can't write anymore.
