Symptoms to Take Notice of in Children

The NHS has been facing ever-increasing pressures in recent years, with slashed budgets, staff shortages and lack of resources taking its toll on the quality of care. One of the many ways we commonly see the impact of these pressures is in waiting times for GP…

How to Through A Larger Than Life Small Wedding on a Budget

This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…

Judging books by their covers: YA novels for adults

I read the Harry Potter books - even though I was an adult when they came out. I loved the world that J.K. Rowling created, and enjoyed each of her novels. I know I wasn't the only one; evidently adults enjoying children's books are now a thing.

More and more authors are seeing adult reviews and fan mail for their children's literature come from adults. As I went through my 100 challenge of reading 100 books in a year, I found that I had accidentally chosen to read several young adult novels, including one that was actually a series (yes, I completed it). I found them to all be enjoyable (if somewhat brief) reads, and I probably would have really liked them when I was younger. They were definitely better than the Babysitter's Club books (not that there was anything wrong with those.)
Moving on: When I completed my book challenge, I made a big effort to read works that stretched my imagination and taught me something - books for "adults." Or at least, books for people who want to keep on learning.
Even so, I think I will always want to read the books my son chooses to read. I will want to know the content ahead of time to make sure that, even if they are age appropriate, we can discuss it if needed.
Wait, is that low-tech stalking?
Oh well. What are you reading these days? Tell me in the comments - if I've read it, too, we can talk about it. Or you can recommend something to me. I'm always game for a good book.

I love reading Y.A and often prefer it to adult books. They have problems solutions, great characters and are short enough to finish. Can't tell you how many adult books I have with bookmarks in them that I'll never finish!

Still thinking about the 100 challenge.,,
