You know, when reading novels, I don’t think age matters. So, I’ll make a confession here. I’m a thirty-eight year old man who reads and enjoys young adult novels from time to time. How about you?
I’m sure everyone’s read Harry Potter. I read it all the way through and enjoyed it thoroughly. It was fun to read, and I have no problem letting people know that.
Do you think there’s a stigma against adults reading young adult novels? You sometimes hear some people saying, “You read that? But it’s for kids!” The same goes for watching cartoons or Disney movies. I still love watching Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry, and Transformers. They’re lots of fun. And I like escaping from my life as an adult occasionally just to indulge in my inner child. And since I have a young child, I’ll continue watching kids shows for a long time. And I’ll enjoy it.
When it’s time for my daughter to read Harry Potter, I’ll gladly talk with her about the story, as well as watch the movies with her. No problem!
Are you an adult who enjoys young adult novels?
