Please list NA books you believe to be a must read. The ones you really can't forget and will stay with you forever.


message 2: by Rachmi (new)

Rachmi  | 286 comments NA is my new fav genre but I think I'm left behind in this genre since I read many of it based on your recommendation :D
The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski is definitely one of books that I can't forget. In fact, it's like my personal book. I also loved Charade (Games, #1) by Nyrae Dawn .


message 3: by Nitzan (new)

Nitzan Schwarz (nitzanafterwords) The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden (The Coincidence, #1) by Jessica Sorensen is definitely a must read in this section, I just think you shouldn't read it until the sequel comes out because otherwise the ending will kill you :<


message 4: by Rachmi (new)

Rachmi  | 286 comments This one also, First Comes Love (First Comes Love, #1) by Katie Kacvinsky , will stay on my mind


message 5: by Jess (new)

Jess | 33 comments Definitely have to say Beautiful Disaster and The Breathing Series, can't pick which is my favourite though!

I agree with this the book was brilliant but what a cliff hanger.


That Slytherin Girl Reads  (shereadsatnight) The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski would have to bmy top recommendation! ^^,

The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski and Hopeless by Colleen Hoover are my top 2 must reads ... You must all give these two books a go

I agree with you, Sylvia, they're a must read!!


message 11: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth | 36 comments I am wondering what an NA book is


message 12: by Tracy (new)

Tracy | 7239 comments Mod
Well, well, well looky here. I have to agree with Sylvia, if there is a book that is going to stay with me I am going to say it is Hopeless by Colleen Hoover because it has been with me now going on the 5th day and I feel like I read it yesterday.

A very close second is Opal (Lux, #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout which I hate/love. Love Daemon and hate the cliffhanger.

Well Elizabeth, Sylvia could probably elaborate more on this. *she knows EVERYTHING!* But I am pretty sure NA is New Adult and that is where the characters are older than in the YA.

NA stands for New Adult and basically is the genre that covers the college age but we think 18 - 26 is more like it ... though most of us who are reading all these books are much older ahem *looks around to see if anyone has noticed my age* LOL but NA will be a lot more edgier, riskier and sexier than YA books e.g. if there is a sex scene in YA it usually reads like a fade away but if it's in NA it's detailed more

K.R. Elliott (KRElliott) | 5 comments It is great to see this category (NA) taking off.
I am the author of a series that has grown with the protagonists. In doing so the way the story is told has matured from YA to NA. At book launches (when speaking with readers) I have often worried when I sign a book for a young teen reader. I generally ask what other books they have read to gauge their maturity level. Many times I have spoken to both mum and daughter and am happy when I hear that the mum has been hooked on the series first and has approvingly passed it on to their teen. I have found it easier to just not class my series as YA but I love this idea of NA. At least then when the story develops there will be no unwanted surprises when they go from book to book and the sex scenes heat up.
I have enjoyed looking through all these posts and seeing what other books are being classed as NA.

For those NA Fantasy Romance eBook readers - The first book in my series is currently reduced in price and is also listed with Amazon Prime for FREE until Sunday. Follow links below.

Freaking amazing! Not my usual kind of book, but I'm glad I took a gamble. The last two sentences alone made it perfect.


message 35: by Gabby (new)

Gabby | 704 comments Okay, I have a question, what's a good book to start the NA Genre with?

I've got The Secret of Ella and Micha (The Secret, #1) by Jessica Sorensen Rule (Rule, #1) by Jay Crownover Fallen Crest High (Fallen Crest High, #1) by Tijan Forever Mine (The Moreno Brothers, #1) by Elizabeth Reyes The Vincent Boys (The Vincent Boys, #1) by Abbi Glines (Although i think i was given the YA edition) That Boy (That Boy, #1) by Jillian Dodd Never Say Never (Never Knights, #1) by Kailin Gow Static by Tawny Stokes And a couple others on my kindle. So, yeah, any opinions?

Okay. Any good ones? :)


message 38: by Crystal (new)

Crystal (crystalf1423) | 26 comments The only one I've read out of your selection is Rule (Rule, #1) by Jay Crownover and I really enjoyed it. I'm not sure whether you have the edited version or not, but the version I read was in desperate need of editing; not sure if that bothers you or not. But overall the story was pretty great!


message 39: by Gabby (last edited Feb 08, 2013 02:46PM) (new)

Gabby | 704 comments Cool. I don't mind the editing as much as some others do, but it can get annoying, so thanks :)

Rule 2 vote (s)
The Vincent Boys 1 vote
Forever Mine -1 vote

E.C. Adams (ecadams) | 66 comments Hi! My personal faves are Beautiful Disaster and Easy.

I'm in the process of editing my own New Adult novel by the name 'The Vampire Code'. I just posted the first chapter on Goodreads under the 'writing' section, hoping to get tons of comments and feeback from fans of the genre like myself. I welcome your comments and THANK YOU for your time. Here's the link:- http://www.goodreads.com/story/show/3...
