Books Marketed as Young adult that might be New Adult, Adult Fiction

According to the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), YA books are those aimed at kids aged 12 to 18 years. In most (if not all cases), the protagonists of the novels fall within those age ranges, and the story is told through teenage eye.

Books marketed as YA sometimes are also New adult an emerging genre many people aren't familiar with. New adult book have 18-30-years-old Main characters dealing with more mature problems, such as drugs, marriage, emotional and physical abuse, sexual assault and violence.

I created this list to include all the books that won't fit the description of the lists below but that are currently marketed as YA.

YA 2019
YA 2020
YA 2022

Is it going to be marketed as YA?


Vibin Booklover Should Chilling effect be here? I found it in several YA lists but someone said it'll be marketed as Adult fiction.

I believe a lot of the 2019 releases in the list will be marketed as adult/new adult. Red, White and Royal blue was erased from my list for that reason.
