18 & Over Book Blogger Follow #82: New Adult or No Thanks?

ReadingBetweentheWinesBookClub
 
18 & Over Book Blogger Follow is a weekly feature that begins on Fridays and runs through the weekend, hosted by Crystal from Reading Between the Wines. This is a Friday blog hop with the objective to find and visit other book blogs that share the same interest as you, namely books geared towards the 18 & over crowd, and make some new friends!


How to join in:

  • You should run a book blog that features and reviews mostly adult reads, some Y.A.’s are okay but 18 & over adult reads should be your majority.
  • Make a separate post for the 18 & Over Book Blogger Follow on your blog.
  • Copy the html for the button above and place it at the top of your post.
  • List & answer the ‘Question of the Week.’
  • Place your name and blog title in the linky below and the url for a direct link to your post
  • Visit the other blogs on the list and say 'Hi!' Following each blog is not mandatory but I know it is always appreciated, and if someone comments saying they’re a new follower it’s polite to follow back. :) It’s always nice to spread the 18 & Over Book Blogging love!
  • Contact me (readingbetweenthewines10 at gmail dot com) with any questions!


Question of the Week: New Adult Romance. Can't get enough? Tired of seeing it everywhere? or Undecided? 

ANSWER:

Promise Me Darkness (Promise Me, #1)I am so far into the 'Can't get enough' category I am drowning in it! lol I am loving the New Adult genre right now. They're so devastatingly dark and crammed full with gut-clenching angsty emotion that when I close a book, if it's a good one, I feel like I am finally coming up for air. A few have had me feeling down and depressed for a week after finishing it which sounds bad but in reality is awesome because a book made me feel like that. Now that being said, *grin* it would be nice to read a 'hearts and flowers' NA every now and then as oppose to what I refer to as 'slit-my-wrists' that this genre is flooded with. You can have a dark and edgy NA without having everything but the kitchen sink thrown at it's characters. True?

Here are some great books in this genre that I would recommend picking up if you're interested:
  1. Promise Me Darkness by Paige Weaver
  2. Taking Chances by Molly McAdams
  3. Real by Katy Evans
  4. The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski
  5. The Stillness of You by Julie Bale
  6. Wait for You by J. Lynn
  7. Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker
  8. Collide by Gail McHugh
Wishing everyone a Happy Solstice and a wonderful Summer!

I agree!! I am definitely enjoying the new adult category - it's nice to have authors write about characters that are around my age.

Taking Chances broke my heart into a billion pieces!! Collide, Ten Tiny Breaths, & Real are on my list to read (:

Happy Friday!
