Young Adult Novels Are for Grown-Ups Too


“Read. Read anything. Read the things they say are good for you, and the things they claim are junk. You’ll find what you need to find. Just read.” — Neil Gaiman

Are you mostly “A” but still “Y” at heart?

Good. Then you will enjoy reading young adult novels. Didja know that many consider The Catcher in the Rye a young adult novel even though it was originally intended for adults?

According to Bowker Market Research, 55% of young adult books purchased are bought by adults between 18 and 44 years old.

I wrote my first young adult novel that will be out soon! (Just a Girl in the Whirl, Speaking Volumes publishing) and I absolutely loved the experience of writing it. Young adult novels really just mean that it’s a coming of age story with a teen protagonist. I plan on writing and reading many more.
