TUESDAY TALKS: What do you read the most of – Middle Grade, YA, or Adult?

Tuesday Talks (9)

Don’t forget that you can find previous Tuesday Talks posts right here.

This is set up by the wonderful Janie over at Bookworms Buddy, and Janelle at MrsJRodsReads. This segment is, as the name implies, a talk each Tuesday about a book-related topic.

And this week’s topic is:

What do you read the most of – Middle Grade, YA or Adult?

This is definitely YA for me! I am addicted to it and don’t really touch adult at all! I do delve into Middle Grade sometimes but only because there is a fine line between what is YA and what is MG with some books.

I recently read a book called Goodnight, Boy by Nikki Sheehan and I’m not too sure what to class it as. I would say Middle Grade but some of the content is possibly too violent for a young audience, so is it YA?! It’s a toughy.

Overall, I do stick to YA mostly and it really annoys me when shops put their YA in the children’s section or call it ‘teen fiction’. Like no, you don’t have to be a teen to enjoy it, it’s Young Adult, k.

What about you?

      1. By adult I mean books for adults and not books with adult content. One I read and loved recently is The Wall of Storms by Ken Lou, which is a sequel to The Grace of Kings.

  1. I read way more YA than anything else at the moment, although I do occasionally delve into adult SFF and I scatter MG books throughout my reading. There’s just something about current YA though!

    1. Tell me about it! I literally read YA and the odd MG thrown in there. Sometimes its only a fine line between the two genres. I don’t feel like an adult to be fair so I think that I relate more to the characters in YA. Have you read Goodnight, Boy? I would say that’s MG but with some of the content it could be classed as YA possibly?

      1. No I haven’t read it but I picked up Being Miss Nobody at the weekend and was surprised to find it in the 8-12 section, not YA. I haven’t read it yet but I honestly thought it was a YA book. I thought Goodnight, Boy was YA too.
        I think YA genuinely contains some of the most exciting writing and writers at the moment. It feels miles ahead of adult books!

        1. Ooo, I really want to read that! Is that the book about selective mutism?
          Definitely! I feel like YA breaks down more barriers too, not the same old stereotypical characters!
