Should Young Adult books still be called Young Adult?
So many of you are probably wondering what the heck this post is even about, yes the title is very confusing but it was really the only way I could even describe this post! After reading many young adult books, seeing quite a few videos on them, and so on I have come to a conclusion that Young Adult books are getting darker, sexier (dare I say ;), and more detailed. You are probably like well yah, I already know this!!
Because Young Adult books are entering this new dark era should they still be considered or more so called Young Adult. I personally do not think so. I feel like Young Adult books fall from the age of 12-17 rather than 18-25. I also think Young Adult books are much more clean, not as detailed when it comes to certain things, and especially not sexy. So what do we call these new era of books.
Personally I have no clue. What I do know is that the age range is around 18-30 years of age, I also know that it will be containing graphic content, sexual ideas, and be way more dark than a Young Adult would be. Should it be called New Age Young Adult or Late Young Adult? Who knows but I personally think that there should be two sections at books stores one for Young Adult and the other for those that are between Young adult and Adult!
So what are your guys thoughts? Am I just being weird about this?
