Mondays: Mailbox/What Are You Reading?/Musings

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books. Alyce  is hosting it on her at home with books

I received a writing Journal from Stacy. I am gonna write poetry in that. Thanks Stacy!!

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey.

I read the following:

1) The Litigators by John Grisham
2) With This Kiss by Victoria Lynne


I am in the midst of reading:

Many books!

Why do you think that the Young Adult genre is so popular with even the adult readers? Do you read YA books, yourself?

I am not sure why YA is popular with adult readers. I don't really read YA stuff. Maybe something which is totally different might interest me. I don't like the fantasy stuff, or the teenage jargon. They do not stimulate me. Give me ADULT fiction any day!

I have been a bit nervous of stepping into the YA genre but have read just a couple of the books. So far so good.

I listened to The Litigators and thought it was pretty good; enjoy.

CMash said...

I agree but often wonder why adults enjoy the YA genre. For me, I have no interest in even trying to read one since there are so many books in the genres that I enjoy.

I'm always impressed by those who are willing to write poetry. It always seems like such a personal endeavor. Have a great week.

cessie said...

So you are writing poetry! For a long time already?
I just got into it again a few months ago and although it is not completely my cup of tea, I like to play with words so I think I will keep trying for a while. I'm enjoying it anyway.
Happy reading and writing then for you!

The Litigators is on my list. Hope you enjoyed it. Have a wonderful week and happy reading. My mailbox is here.

I need to get The Litigators - it sounds good to me.

Suko said...

I read only a bit of YA, from time to time. Have a wonderful week!

Lana said...

can't pinpoint why I love YA so much. I still read adult books but not as many as I used to

MoniqueReads said...

I'm not a huge YA fan either. I will read it every now and then. Depending on the book. But it is not really for me. I notice that a lot of book bloggers I follow read YA.

Happy Reading.

Mary (Bookfan) said...

I tend not to read YA. Just too many other books on the shelves I guess.

Sophia said...

I haven't read any John Grisham for ages - I really should do something about that! Enjoy your books :-)

Last year I discovered I like reading the YA genre very much, whether dystopian, historical or non-fiction. I guess it brings me back to that youthful feeling.

RAnn said...

John Grisham's books are usually good.

Yvonne said...

I usually read YA for reviews, but I don't go out of my way for it and I'm not really interested in it.

Alyce said...

How lovely to receive a journal for writing!

I don't get why so many adults like the YA genre. If I see lots of great reviews for a YA book that looks good I'll add it to my wish list, but don't read more than a couple a year.
