Book Blogger Hop (2 of 2011)

Book Blogger Hop
The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-For-Books and is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!

Thanks for hopping by!

This week's question comes from Barb who blogs at Sugarbeat's Books:

"Why do you read the genre that you do? What draws you to it?"

I've gotten mainly into reading YA. I like to mix it up with adult fiction every once in a while and read a "big girl book" as I like to call them. I read them because they are quick, fun and light. They are getting better and better in the writing quality every year. The topics are becoming more like what people deal with all the time. The different perscpective is refreshing. 
 YA is a huge market and not just for young adults anymore. I am in an online book club and I have to say that a lot of the people in it are adults and they read YA. It's much more widely accepted (I attribute this to Harry Potter and Twilight).
