message 1: by Holly (new)

Holly Letson I'm new to reading the NA genre, so I am curious. Would books, where they are still in school (college), yet going through more adult-type situations like failed marriages ending in divorce qualify for this genre? I'm thinking the College Girls (Sweet Valley University, #1) by Francine Pascal (Sweet Valley University) series and the Freshman Dorm #01 by Linda A. Cooney (Freshman Dorm) series, and the Sweet Valley Confidential Ten Years Later by Francine Pascal / The Sweet Life (The Sweet Life #1) by Francine Pascal (book - Sweet Valley Confidential & spin-off series - Sweet Valley Confidential: The Sweet Life) would qualify for this.

Can someone tell me? Thanks.

Holly Letson Thanks, I suppose. But, you kinda make it sound like a book cannot be in this genre unless it focuses on sex. Guess that's why I haven't been reading NA then. Just like my IRL relationships shouldn't be (and will *never* be) based on sex, I don't think ones in books should, either.

I was under the impression that it was about college students (or people of that age), and about them trying to figure out what they want to do with their lives. Making mistakes along the way, but learning from that, and moving on to things that work better for them. Making the transition into adulthood and living for themselves. (Kinda like the genre called "Mature YA" since 10 or 15 years ago.) But, if it's just about sex, it's usually considered an "adult" book.

Holly Letson Thanks to both of you for the recommendation. I will have to look into that book.


message 4: by Holly (new)

Holly Letson That does sorta clear it up, Jenna. Thanks.

Elizabeth Yu-Gesualdi Hello ladies! Great job explaining the NA genre Jenna. I would also like to thank you and Tammy for the wonderful endorsements you are giving my novel, Broken Road. Thank you so very much for your kind words regarding it. I truly appreciate it and am very happy that you both enjoyed reading it. I have been perusing through many of the lists categorized under NA and YA and I've seen some of your comments. You are both very kind. Thank you again.

Beeg Panda This is probably a silly question but can someone pls tell me if it's possible to get email alerts when a book is added to this list? Thanks in advance.


message 7: by _Nazanin_ (new)

_Nazanin_ hi I don't know how stupid it is to ask this here but I am going to ask any way I am planning on reading a some books in this list and wanted to if anyone was interested in reading with me? or how I could actually find that someone on this site?? I'm sorry if this is not the place to ask this and thank you in advance.


message 8: by Michelle (new)

Michelle I am looking for New Adult books that would be appropriate for teens to read. Any suggestions would be great. I am a librarian who have teens who enjoy reading about life in college but I want to be careful about the graphic/explicit sex scenes.
