Wow, I have read much since my last Monday meme. I will get to what I have read on Wednesday. I am currently listening to The Lady Elizabeth by Alison Weir. I have two discs left so I should finish that in about two hours. After that, I will start listening to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowlings. I am also listening to Beastly by Alex Finn. I am reading Kissing Tennessee and Other Stories from the Stardust Dance by Kathi Appelt and Book of Spells from Kate Brian. I am also listening to War & Peace by Leo Tolstoy, though it has been a month since I last listened and so I need to keep listening to that again. I admit that I am only continuing to listen to this because I want to say that I have read War & Peace at the end of it.
So, what are you reading this month?
Which do you prefer: Adult -or- Young Adult books? Or, both? Why?
I prefer Young Adult Books. I feel like that don’t try to be all hoity toity in their wording and like they are so above it all. In addition, I like the characters better, in general. I feel like many young adult books don’t have those hidden agendas (feminism, gender, sex, race, etc). I get so annoyed by that in many adult novels. However, when it comes to mysteries, I prefer Adult mysteries. They have the better plot and the answer doesn’t tend to scream at you off of the page. However, when looking around my bookshelves, I see about a 50/50 split between Young Adult and Adult novels.
So what do you prefer? Young Adult or Adult novels?
