A lot of romance readers dip into YA fiction, myself included. Some of my favorite books have ended up being YA-romances, which were much more complex than I expected. I was intruiged today when I saw the article The Dark Side of Young Adult Fiction in the NYT's. It's not an article really. It doesn't take a side but presents a serious of opinions about why so many dark themes and dystopias reoccur in YA-fiction. It made me take a moment to look at my TBR list and sure enough books like "The Hunger Games" and "Matched" were on there.
