New Adult Month @ Salacious Reads

Share it Please


This month I have decided to declare February New Adult Month at SR. I more than likely won't read that many NA books, but wanted to try it and see what's all the excitement is about.

At this time, I only have one book on my list at this time and thats...

Pushing The Limits by Katie McGarry

****Update I totally forgot I had this one on my NOOK too. Damn, my books be just getting lost...lmbo



So if you guys would like to make a couple of suggestions...I'm more than willing to take them ^_^, just leave a comment below..
Why am I reading New Adult?...well I'm always open to a new genre and besides I signed up for a blog hop which features said "genre" and it would probably be a good idea if I read something that relates...right?

So anyways..throw your suggestions this way. I'll take a look at the book/blurb and see if it's to my liking.

Happy Sunday!

Lata Days...MUAH

  3. I'm not a new adult person, but I really liked Pushing the Limits but I did want to hit both characters once or twice as I was reading. Teenage drama *sigh*. Good luck with your reading!

  4. I feel ya Ning...that's my thing with YA, I can't take that teenage drama...just don't have any patience for that mess, lols. I hear NA is suppose to be much different, a lil more on the "Adult" side...so we shall see.

    Thank you for stopping through & commenting...you rock as always!

  5. Alright. What the devil is the diff between New Adult and Young Adult?

    ReplyDelete
  6. New Adult is more mature. Borderline adult? But, not quite there. Still maturing from their teeny bopper stage. Adult content is there, just with a film screen covering it the whole time lmbo. At least, that's my definition for it lol.

  7. Where as YA is major kiddy stuff there lol.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Huh. I guess the YA I've read in the past is more New Adult then.

    ReplyDelete
  9. LOL! from what I understand...New Adult are suppose to be stories with College kids either entering or are already there (that 19...20 & up crowd) & I guess the stories are suppose to be more risque as far as the sex is stuff is concerned than the YA books.

    Directly from Wiki, the official Definition of New Adult....

    New-adult Fiction or post-adolescent literature is a recent category of fiction for young adults first proposed by St. Martin's Press in 2009.[1] St. Martin’s Press editors wanted to address the coming-of-age that also happens in a young person’s twenties. They wanted to consider stories about young adults who were legally adults, but who were still finding their way in building a life and figuring out what it means to be an adult.

  10. mhm. it's more or less geared towards post adolescents (like my self I guess) if you're moving on from "holding hands" to "making out" lol. though, with young adults now-a-days wheeew. hahaha.

    ReplyDelete
  11. mhm.. what she said. it's a fairly new genre. (2009 bases on wiki) but, this is the first I've heard of it (late last year)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Darn them an all these categories. LOL Alright then I've read a bit of NA. Guess I have to start using that now with reviews and such. Lordy.

    ReplyDelete
  13. yeah, I get confused too. I read a few that were claimed to be "YA" but when I read them I was like.. hmmm that's not YA, deeefinitely not YA.. and then I find out that there is a genre called "New Adult" I was calling it "Young-Adult-On-The-Verge-Of-Adulthood" lol

    ReplyDelete
  14. me too Ana, I just started see it like the end of last year

    ReplyDelete
  15. lmbo...it is a hard genre to define though.

    ReplyDelete
  16. lol @ holding hand to making out! but its true a lot of these "Young Adults" are more Adults then we are...lmbo~

    ReplyDelete
  17. I've read some YA in the past & I just can't deal with all that she's so pretty & popular stuff ...you know that cheerleader chick & the her football star boyfriend. it's irritating to read for me that is.

    ReplyDelete
  18. yepp. I like the genre though :) when I want a break from Adult but not wanting to transition into YA.

    ReplyDelete
  19. lmbo! i mean.. look at 16 and preggers... haha

    ReplyDelete
  20. def what Ana just said right there ;)

    ReplyDelete
  21. that wiki def is confusing as hell...now that I re-read it...lmbo!

    ReplyDelete
  22. It seems like a genre to definitely explore, which is why I'm going to try it..hopefully I won't want to chuck a book or my NOOK in space, lols

    ReplyDelete
  23. lol no no no none of that! haha. I think it's just, if you're so embedded in a certain genre, you'll more or less find it hard to transition into another genre where the elements lack what you're used to. Like me jumping from Erotica to YA (big ass difference) and I get all kinds of discombobulated.

    ReplyDelete
  24. You're right & I totally agree. That is a big ass difference yo..lols. But NA would def be closer to Adult...just a lit, right?

    ReplyDelete
  25. those shows creep me the hell out...some of those chicks & dudes need a good ol' ass whupping LMBO!

    ReplyDelete
  26. yeah, just a tad bit. it's getting there, but the relationships I feel in Adult books are way more matured. (duh lol) but New Adult is good. I like the whole college vibe. It's cute. Especially Contemporary Romance. I feel that once you hit 18+ you can move along and still read books that are more suited for you. But, YA is good too. But I'll keep that at PNR.

    ReplyDelete
  27. totally agree & feel the same way. You know I haven't read a YA PNR book...maybe I'll give one a try one of these day...MAYBE, lols

    ReplyDelete
  28. You want adult then I suggest the The Proposition and The Proposal by Katie Ashley I think you might like it....

    ReplyDelete
  29. I have a few New Adult titles. I have a The Secret of Ella and Micha and the Coincidence of Callie and Kayden. Both feature emotionally scared "new adults" 19-20ish crowd. The leads are not annoying and tho it is light on the physical, it is there. I have Hopeless by Colleen Hoover. I havent read it but its getting good reviews. Ah hell, i'm just going to email you. LOL


    Oh and the difference between YA and NA is they are typically in college and there is sex in the book. Typically they are also angst ridden and have to overcome some trauma from their past.

  30. Ah....add the trama, hmmmmm interesting indeed. TY Amanda, Im gonna have to take a look at your suggestions... They sound good espcially if the main chatacters wont work my nerves..lols

    ReplyDelete
