But what you maybe need to justify is why you read books that you only like instead of reading a book you feel is really good.
I like a lot of YA books also. But the main reason I start to read most of them is because I am interested in the sf/fantasy genre and read books that people are talking about. But I have noticed that nearly all YA I read are just OK, it is hard to find a really good book among them. And if I did not have additiona reasons to read broadly in the sf/fantasy genre I would propably not read so many YA book (currently reading _The Gorl who Circumnavigated Fairyland an a Ship of Her Own Making_ but it is also just OK).
