Ruth Graham thinks adults should be ashamed for reading YA books.

(http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/books/2014/06/against_ya_adults_should_be_embarrassed_to_read_children_s_books.html)

To quote, "Read whatever you want. But you should feel embarrassed when what you’re reading was written for children."
