Welcome To Tell Me Something Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings.
This week we are asking:
What do you think of the New Adult category? Have you ever read a New Adult (NA) book and are there any you would recommend?
I like the NA genre. I love my YA but sometimes you just need something a little older, a little more involved. This is where this genre comes in for sure.
Some that I have read:
This one is very involved sex wise. If you don't like erotica, don't read it. The characters are in their 20s. For me, the writing was terrible and unless you want something that is pure fluff, I wouldn't read this.
I love me some Jennifer L. Armentrout. So, when I heard she was writing NA under J. Lynn, I had to read them. And, I have to admit, while I'm not huge on contemporary stuff, I enjoyed reading these books. They actually have stories to them, which is nice. I would recommend these. Some slight erotic scenes, but nothing like Fifty. I'm looking forward to the third Gamble Brothers book and the next Wait for You book.
I only read the first book in this series. I was very disappointed. It's disjointed and all over the place. It's NA paranormal. I didn't even bother reading the other one.
My friends loved this one, I didn't. It's Twilight fan fiction originally. It just wasn't for me. A little violent.
This one was nice. People really seemed to enjoy it. Again, just ok for me. But the story was good (except for the end for me which seemed a little unreal given it's a contemporary story). I would recommend it, tho.
Written by my good friend KaSondra Leigh, I liked this story. It's a paranormal NA, and it's very light on the sex. I think that's what throws me off from most of the NA books I read. They are so focused on the erotic part. This one has romance, but also a ghost story. It was a nice read. I would recommend this one for sure.
So, tell me, have you read NA? What do you think? What would you recommend?
Wow! You had a bunch on your list that I hadn't heard of, they definfinitely are not the ones that everyone usually considers to be NA. I will have to look up some of your recommendations. I do have The Edge of Never and need to read it. I have no desire to read Fifty Shades, I know I wouldn't get past the bad writing. I don't think it is really NA anyway. Thanks for participating and doing sucn a fab post, Brooke!ReplyDelete
