As you guys probably know, my tastes for books cover a wide range of genres. From adult fiction to sci-fi to nonfiction to YA contemporary…I read it all! And one of my favorite genres just happens to be New Adult.
One huge complaint about New Adult fiction is how it’s basically just porn with a background story in book form. Well, I’m here to tell you guys that there is more to New Adult than just sex. In fact, there’s some really great NA out there. You just have to know where to look!
While I certainly don’t consider myself an expert in this genre, I’ve found a lot of NA that I’ve loved. So I thought I’d compile a list for you guys, who are mostly YA readers, who may be interested in trying out some New Adult lit but aren’t quite sure where to start. I’ve attempted to include a few different types of NA in this list…some may feature high-school age students but have a mature plot, one is paranormal, and one is even a suspenseful “50 Shades of Grey”-type book. Not all of them even include sex!
I hope you find one (or more!) that you think you might like 🙂
