If you haven’t heard already, there was an article on Slate that was titled, ‘Yes, Adults Should Be Ashamed to Read YA’. It has caused quite the fuss. And rightfully so in my opinion. As a big advocate against genre-shaming, I disagreed with much of what the article had to say. There have been some great responses here, here, and here.
I made a little video with me expressing my thoughts. Please share your opinions on the blog and/or beneath the video. Let’s get a discussion going. 🙂
My thoughts in a nutshell: Read what makes you happy. Read what you want. Read YA if you want to read YA (regardless of age).
