Rant – YA and Romance Novels

So, I’ve been noticing more and more lately that everyone seems to love YA and Romance novels. The giveaways on Goodreads are full of them. My friends seem to only add them, or read them. As I’m looking for new blogs to read everyone is reviewing YA novels, or Romance novels. Why are all vampire and werewolf and shifter novels in the Romance section? Can we not have supernatural stories that don’t involve two people going at it like dogs in heat?

Now, I have no problem with YA novels. I was a teenager once and at the time I liked YA novels. However, I am now an adult in my 30’s and I want to read books that are geared towards adults, but without all the sex! Is that so bad? Really, is it so wrong to want to read something that has a real plot and character growth and some fun or surprising plot twists?


Do you review and talk about adult books in your blog? If so, tell me in the comments because i will definitely check it out. Help me out fellow bloggers, help me find something I actually want to read about!

  1. Oh man, I’m not a Y-A fan, I’m a believer in that people should read whatever makes them happy but hell no, Y-A isn’t for me, I like my fantasy rather more gory!😂 Won’t find any Y-A on my blog, maybe some comments that get me in trouble but no Y-A!😂

  2. “Can we not have supernatural stories that don’t involve two people going at it like dogs in heat?” – THIS. Gosh it irritates the crap out of me. I read a lot of things, sometimes YA, sometimes romance, I read a lot of mysteries and psychological thrillers.

    I am currently busy with Donna Tartt’s The Little Friend, and I am enjoying it. Picked it up because I loved The Goldfinch (which I can wholeheartedly recommend). I also recently read King’s 11/22/63, which is hands down one of the best books I have read in years. I also thoroughly enjoy Karin Slaughter’s work – she’s very good.

  3. Lol!! I feel your part of your pain. It’s only very recently that I’ve started to do at least 1 romance review each month, not because it’s getting a lot of attention, but because it’s my least liked genre lol. I usually avoid it like the plague, but have been attempting to “broaden my horizons” by reading genres I’m not so familiar with. I do love and review adult books (mostly fantasy and comics), but have always loved YA so am more than guilty of jumping on that hype train lol.
