Do you prefer YA or Adult Literature?
Can we just stop categorizing books? Who cares if the protagonist is a child, a teen, an adult, or an anthropomorphic cow, as long as the story is good? I love all sorts of books. My favorite series is Harry Potter, which you will always find in the Children’s section of your bookstore.
There are two things that I look for in good literature, I want to be absolutely devastated by the things that happen in a story, and I want to be left with a feeling of hope at the end. Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Cycle series is a great example of this. I went into the last book, The Raven King, totally prepared to have my heart ripped out. And it was, but sooner than I expected, and that left room at the end of the book for hope.
Do you have a particular age category you prefer to read? Or are you like me, choosing books by how they make you feel?
