New Adult Literature

YA is really popular but I'm curious about older YA books or ones about "new adults" - books that focus on young people, college age, late teens to early twenties, transitioning into the adult world.

Elizabeth Yu-Gesualdi Thank you so much Jenna and Tammy! I am so very happy that you both enjoyed reading Broken Road. I truly appreciate your kind words and support. Also, thanks for spreading the word about it! I've been perusing through many of the lists categorized under NA and YA and have come across some of your comments regarding my novel. I may have to hire the two of you as my personal publicists! Thank you again.

Chloe Fandom Queen Please, somebody, explain to me how these are Adult books???...

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1) by Suzanne Collins Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #1) by Laini Taylor Glass Houses (The Morganville Vampires, #1) by Rachel Caine Bloodlines (Bloodlines, #1) by Richelle Mead The Host (The Host, #1) by Stephenie Meyer Poison Study (Study, #1) by Maria V. Snyder The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater Inescapable (The Premonition, #1) by Amy A. Bartol

None of these, and I repeat NONE of these are even remotely Adult!!!
