Adult Books

Do any of you wish that your favorite YA authors wrote books for adults?

One of my favorite things about the Sex and the City Movie was that it was an adult story. So many adult movies today are historical fiction, war, blow things up, or feature overgrown men children. This was a movie about... adults.

And I'm not saying that adult literature is more important but... if my favorite authors can capture the feelings and thoughts of who I was so perfectly, making me wish they YA literature was the force then that it is now, I want to see what they can do to capture the person I am now. If they can still capture that rawness and immediacy. Just 10-15 years older.

Anybody else with me on this?
