Totally!!! Please do edit your list title- remove YA,at LEAST. :("


No, I wanted a list of YA and new adult. Not my fault thats not what ppl are adding.

You can click on the tab at the top that says 'add books to this list' and add it if you want.

Jessie McClain My book Awakening Iris (The Dreamcatchers Saga #1) was just released. It's contemporary romance. I was hoping it could be added on here?

Mochaspresso Most of these are actually adult titles. Only a few are NA and even fewer are YA.

It looks to be about a three way split. Unfortunately there's nothing I can do about it.

I think that the person who originally created the list has the ability to remove titles that they don't want on there. 50 Shades, This Man, The Sylvia Day books, Tangled, Wallbanger and Captive in the Dark are definitely adult reads.

I don't think I can. I have never seen that option before.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I don't believe the list creator can edit the books on the list. You need a GR librarian.

That said: what do you want removed? I can get it.

Wow, there are a lot. I would have to go trough the whole list and find all those that aren't YA or NA. There are some that I know by memory. I will maybe get to that later.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads OK; I'll wait until I get a list, then; I don't know these genres terribly well.

I don't think so because I'm in 8th grade and I've read about a third of those books
