For those of you that know me, and know my age also are aware of the fact how I am certainly NOT OLD. Get this, I still have the suffix teen attached to my age though under the eyes of the law I am classed as an adult but whateverr
So why am I obsessing over this predicament?
Only because it was compared to with my young adult books at a certain conversation I had with my sister*. I was peacefully reading a book, enjoying the view until she decides to come and disrupt me with her useless thoughts
Me: (reading a book)
Sister: what you reading
Me: a book
Sister: yeah oh a teenag--
Me: YOUNG ADULT book
Sister: same thing
Sister: arn't you like too old
Me: (drops the book whilst ripping the page)
How can anyone say that? That is like the meanist thing ever not forgetting to mention the fact that a page of the book RIPPED. Like total ripp-age. My book RIPPED. My precious book RIPPED.
Okay I'm going to stop now.
But you get the whole who-ha right? The book ripping :P but that I'm too old to read YA. Who ever heard of such a thing? Of anyone being too old to read a particular book? I know that I'm not too old, I'm still a frickin teenager helllooooo but it just seemed so shocking that I had to post it and hey it also made me wonder...
I'm a teenager and I read young adult books. But even when adults read it, like proper adults read teenage books I also think its okay. Why not? These 'YA' books that we read are classed as YA to portray in what levels the content will range from and where the limits in certain things would be. Yes, it does also aim at certain audiences but it's not to say other older audiences cannot read these books. I would really love to know what are your thoughts on this
WE ARE OLD WE WILL READ YOUNG ADULT BOOKS AND SO WHAT!?**
