More adults buying teens books (for themselves!)

5 Oct

A little bit ago, The CS Monitor published an article titled, “Who’s buying teen books? Lots and lots of adults” that cited a study that found “the largest group of readers purchasing titles labeled ‘young adult’ are actually 30 to 44 years old…[and] 78 percent of adults who were buying the young adult books said they were buying for themselves, not someone else.”

Are you an adult that loves teen books?! I know I am (well obviously!).

A few pretty great authors who usually write “adult” books have come out with some teen books this year. Check it out:
