Recently N has tweeted about some interesting things about NA and it’s sparked some fun arguments between us all. Apparently there have been some comments about how NA is really just porn for teens. Though I find that an amusing concept, it was an idea that NA is a genre that caught my attention. 

Now I’m not going to get into my opinion on the subject (at least not yet), but I thought it’d be fun to see what everyone here thought about genres. Some think that YA, MG, and NA are considered actual genre, and some do not. Let us know what you think and why.

PS. As much as I love a good devils advocate in any argument, please remember your netiquette when posting.



  1. YA, MG, and NA are not genres. They are marketing categories targeted to particular age groups. Contemporary, romance, science fiction, fantasy, horror, historical fiction, etc. - those are genres.

  2. What Eric said. YA, MG, and NA are not genres, but age groups.
