    24 Things All Young Adult Fans Are Tired Of Hearing

    Back away from my reading habits.

    1. "Young Adult books are just less sophisticated."

    O rly? And you know this from the zero you've read?

    2. "Oh yeah YA is good... I mean, if you're after an easy read."

    Cartoon Network

    Because reading for pleasure is just so ridiculous.

    3. "Aren't you a little old to be reading that?"

    Isn't it a little none of your business?

    4. "Oh that book is your fav? But it’s so bad."


    Thank you for insulting something that brings me happiness. I needed that. Yep.

    5. "YA books are for girls."

    You say that like it's a bad thing (also guys like them too FYI).

    6. "I'm so tired of YA books. They're all the same."

    The CW


    7. “I didn’t even read YA when I was a teenager.”


    Well then you missed out, didn't you?

    8. "But you’re not really challenging yourself, are you?"


    I don't know, does talking to you count?

    9. "It’s Hunger Games meets Divergent meets Twilight meets Mean Girls meets Game of Thrones meets Harry Potter!"


    Stop trying to trick me into reading this and just tell me what it's actually about.

    10. “If you love John Green or Rainbow Rowell you'll love this!”


    See above.

    11. "And it has a love triangle!"

    Weinsten Company

    1004% done with those.

    12. "The next book in the series will be out in 2016!"


    But I need to know what happens now!

    13. "[Insert WRONG actor here] has been cast in the movie adaptation."

    The CW

    Should've been Alex Pettyfer or Ben Barnes, lbr.

    14. "The last movie of the series will be split into two films!"

    The CW

    That's really not necessary. Really.

    15. "I saw the movie so I don’t need to read the book."

    Twentieth Century Fox

    I mean, OK, sure, it's your right to make the wrong decision.

    16. "Can't you put that book down for one minute?"

    Comedy Central

    No. No, I actually can't.

    17. "You read too much!"


    Not enough, IMO.

    18. "I feel like writing a Young Adult book would be easy. I might have a go."

    The CW

    I mean, go ahead, even though you clearly don't even care about the genre. I'm sure it'll be super easy. Uh-huh.


    Warner Bros

    You tell me spoilers and you're dead to me.

    20. "It's just a book!"


    You don't understand!

    21. "This YA book I read was bad, therefore they must all be bad."

    I once read a terrible "adult" book, does that mean they're all bad too?

    22. "YA is dumbing down/destroying our culture!"


    Nah but attitudes like yours might.

    23. "But Twilight—"


    Citing Twilight automatically makes your argument invalid because we've all moved on and it just tells me that you actually know nothing about YA.

    24. "You shouldn't read YA."

    Warner Bros
    Warner Bros

    OK BYE.
