That awkward moment you realize a character is too young for you.
As a twenty-something year old that has a great love for YA books, it is inevitable that I will fall for guys that are way too young for me. I'll be sitting there picturing these characters in all their sexiness and then suddenly I remember, HE'S 16! Whoa! Talk about robbing the cradle!
The good news is that since it's a book and they are in fact fictional characters I'm not doing anything illegal and for the most part it is socially acceptable. Better news? Since they are fictional I can change a couple of minor details like say, age. Bump them up a couple of years and wa-la I got myself a new book boyfriend (that isn't way too young for me).
In all seriousness though, it is a little awkward when I think about the fact that I am actually crushing on high school boys. I mean most of the time I don't consider myself an adult but the fact of the matter is I am. I'm not a high schooler or even a college student. I'm an adult with a grown up job and a kid!
Despite the awkwardness, I'm still not willing to give up my YA books so this is an awkwardness I'm just going to have to get use to.
What about you? Do you ever crush on guys in books that are not age appropriate?
