Young Adult Fiction vs Adult Fiction
I like both! I like YA since it almost always has happily-ever-after endings and I can relate to most of the things that happen in YA books, but at the same time, there's a reason why it's called young adult fiction. The characters are teenagers who are on the verge of discovering themselves (I can definitely relate to that) and their place in this world, but sometimes they're too childish and whiny. Of course, that can happen with the characters in adult fiction, too, but it's more common that the adults are more calculate and reasonable, also, the romance is more believable since I do not know that many couples who've found each other in high school and are still happily married today. I don't know, I think I'm just a realist with a great imagination (I'm a Virgo, so that can explain a lot, too - we're usually very calculated and rational). While YA is always full of action, angst and usually the characters act before they think, adult fiction is more balanced. I like both: I like a great romance and since I'm very rational myself, I like books that take me out of my comfort zone and on an adventure I couldn't have imagined even in my wildest dreams. Moreover, when you look at my "read" pile, you can easily see that I've read more YA than adult books and there are a lot more YA novels that fall to my "favorite" category. So.. does that means we have a winner? I think we do.
