My last post notwithstanding, I have decided that I have been reading too many young adult novels lately. I’m 26. I’m married. I have a real job. Yet I keep reading books meant for teenage/pre-teen/even-younger-than-that girls. Part of this is due to my Betsy-Tacy journey. Part of this is due to my Post-War and Peace lack of attention for big books. And partly is is just because some good young adult books have recently been released or discovered.
But I don’t want to read only YA books. There are a lot of good grown-up books out there that I want to read. So I’m instituting a new rule. I need to keep at least a 1:1 ratio each month (starting in November of course). For every YA book I read, I need to then read a non-YA book. This will allow me to shift my focus back on some of the other books I want to be reading.
I also want my husband to respect me again. (I told him he would like this post and he asked if he was in it. I said no and he said he likes when he is in my posts so this is me mentioning him).
But I do still have Catching Fire to read…and the Betsy-Tacys…and…
