Musing Mondays

Musing Mondays 
Hosted by Should Be Reading
Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren't) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!

This week I've seen a few posts about the age of YA readers. Well I'm over 30 but I still love my YA books. I own hundreds between my kindles and bookshelves. It's amazing to see how YA as a genre has progressed since I was a teen. Even as a teen I was reading adult fiction so it's only fitting as an adult I continue to read YA books. 
Sheila over @ Book Journey has a great post about YA for Adults? I agree with everything she says. I would rather be immature over giving up my YA. 

My 12 year old is reading YA books we have read a few of the same books but I find myself reading more books that I hope he will also read. I can see him reading adult books in the near future of course they won't be romance like mine had been but I see a lot of interest in epic fantasy from him. 
I also have been reading children's books with my 4 year old. We visit the library several times a week and I love seeing all the new stories as well as the ones I loved as a kid. 

My hubby also reads YA but that could be because they are shorter less intense than adult books and he reads when he's TDY/Deployed/ or has other downtime. He's not a reader and I love that he shows an interest in something I love as well. 

My book club for Air Force wives here on base recently read a YA book and have many more on our reading list for the future. We all range from early twenties and up. It's interesting to see so many different women come together to read YA books. 

I'm just glad that people are reading no matter what they love. So many people as well as children don't have a love of books. 

What are you musing today?
