I’ve been pondering adding a new weekly (or semi-weekly for my crazy schedule) meme to the blog. So, here we have this post :). It’s a “Wednesday Wonderings” question — today, it’s book-related, but next week it may be about something totally different. We’ll see.
This brings me to THE question: Do you prefer books with characters who are close to your own age?
My response is “kind of”. I do especially enjoy books with characters close to my own age (20-something), but I have equally enjoyed stories of children, teens, and adults of all ages (even “old” people), in different genres. I think, for me, it comes down to story content. If the story is something close to my heart, relevant to my faith-walk, or entertaining, I can enjoy characters at any age. BUT, I do really love it when a character close to my own age is relatable because of their current life circumstances. I noticed Rissi mentioned this recently, too!
What are your thoughts? Do you only read books where the main character is your age? Or do you read various “ages” and genres?
