Addicted to New Adult



Today kicks off New Leaf Literary's Addicted to New Adult campaign, where bloggers are getting together to share why they fell for New Adult.

As a twenty-two year old, NA is an age category with huge appeal to me. The characters are going through similar things to me to and it's great to be able to relate to those characters. It also gives scope for issues to be delved into a little deeper than they can with YA. So far the NA novels I've read have hugely impressed me and I can't wait to get my teeth stuck into more of them!

You can read my reviews of some fantastic NA novels below, along with the reasons why I loved them:

One Week by Nikki Van De Car
Plot summary (from Goodreads):
Reluctant celebutante Bee had everything that second tier fame could offer—and hated every bit of it. In search of an identity of her own, not some media creation, she takes off from LA with nothing. Bee discovers that one week can change everything. She may even have a chance at love. But is it real or just another illusion?
Why I fell in love with it: This was a real story of self-discovery, with Bee having to really grow up as she enters the big wide world for the first time.




Suddenly Royal by Nichole Chase
Plot summary (from Goodreads):
Samantha Rousseau is used to getting her hands dirty. Working toward a master’s degree in wildlife biology while helping take care of her sick father, she has no time for celebrity gossip, designer clothes, or lazy vacations. So when a duchess from the small country of Lilaria invites her to dinner, Samantha assumes it’s to discuss a donation for the program. The truth will change the course of her life in ways she never dreamed.
Why I fell in love with it: The main character, Sam, was definitely a character I could look up to. I loved seeing the story told from the perspective of a grad student who obviously cares a lot about her work. Yay for smart people!

The Edge of Never by J. A. Redmerski
Plot summary (from Goodreads):
Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett thought she knew exactly where her life was going. But after a wild night at the hottest club in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, she shocks everyone-including herself-when she decides to leave the only life she's ever known and set out on her own. Grabbing her purse and her cell phone, Camryn boards a Greyhound bus ready to find herself. Instead, she finds Andrew Parrish.
Why I fell in love with it: This book was packed with amazing chemistry and made me crave more NA contemporary romance. It delved into some darker issues as well which was done really well.
