While not exactly a die-hard fan of the current YA craze? I suppose when I think on it, the only thing I feel for the author of the original article, is pity. Not to personally attack her, but how insecure someone must be that they have to try to make others feel bad about what they enjoy, even if she doesn't like the same thing.
I grew up part tomboy, part girly-girl, and nerd. So I'm used to this kind of opinion-and not caring about it when it comes to my fandoms and interests.
Like what YOU like. Read what YOU want to read, and don't let someone else make you feel bad for doing so. Don't give them that kind of power over you.
