So I made a mistake. People that I follow on twitter were talking about this Slate article regarding Adults reading YA. That was all I caught on my phone before twitter reloaded. I searched the article thinking "Cool another post saying its great to be an adult and read YA books." Well sadly it was the exact opposite. Not only did they saw it wasnt right they went on to say that Adults should feel ashamed for reading YA in public. On twitter trending right now is #PromoteYAInstead, start tweeting out your favorite YA authors and spread the Love of YA everywhere. I am going to hunt down my old blog post of “Why I Read YA” and revamp it a little to add to the discussion.
In case anyone feels the need to read the Slate Article here is the link. Can I just warn you rage will occur. I tried so hard to keep an open mind when I reread it a few minutes ago but I just cant.
Now although this was written to discourage from reading YA the writers plan has backfired and turned into a full out YA promoting scene.
