Recently, I’ve been thinking. Why do I read YA books? So now I’m answering myself in a blog post.
First of all, to me all YA books are more or less the same. If you read about five YA books, you’ve basically read them all. Most of them go by the same story line. There is a character, and they have a boring life, then something amazing happens and they are then a hero. Or, there is a character and something bad happens, and then everything turns out great.
So nowadays, I’m not that pushed about my reading goal for this year, or my Goodreads 2017 Reading Challenge.
I’ve only completed 27 books so far this year (I’m not very proud about that) and I’m already 2 books behind schedule, and my goal for this year is to read 100 books.
I’ve also noticed that on Goodreads most of my friends and a lot of other peoples shelves are filled with YA books. I am one of those people. Now that I’ve read a lot of YA books, I’ve realized that I am KIND OF wasting my time reading them. I know some of them are SO AMAZING that I read them over and over again, and that is normally because they are unique. And what I mean by unique is that they aren’t just a copy of another YA book with some other stuff smushed inside it to make it different.
I’m not saying that YA books are AWFULLY TERRIBLE, but to be honest, I’ve gone off reading them a tiny bit. Because, I’m not benefiting anything from them. Well, I know they aren’t written for benefit from, it’s for pleasure. But ANYWAY. This is MY opinion, and I can say what I like about books.
So in all, I’ve been trying to explain how I’ve gone a tiny bit off YA books. Because they are basically all the same, and I’m not getting anything out of them.
