Todays topic: Adult Fiction vs. Ya Fiction
I like the perfect 50/50 combination of both, I cannot choose and read them both. I think it depends upon my mood. I get to relive my high school days when reading YA. I also love the innocence and anticipation of a first kiss, but it usually lingers on throughout the whole book.
I think Julia Haygert (@Julia_Haygert) put it best at a recent Indie chat discussion on twitter. "I love YA but sometimes I get tired of omg-that-guy-is-hot-but-I've-never-been-kissed-before thing. NA jumps that phase ;) #Indiechat"
I am a grownup, I like to read edgier material as well; but I don't want to be in the Harlequin Romance novels category like my mother lol. Some of the books are set in college and skips that first kiss part, but there more things to anticipate, new love.. stronger emotions.. for me I can relate to them a little more, since it is around my age range.
Favorite Example of YA: Delirium, or the Shadow Falls Series
Favorite Example of NA: Beautiful Disaster, Inhale, and House of Grey and Graves
