message 5: by Runell (new)

Runell Hi, everyone! My name is Runell (roo-nell) and I love to read almost anything, but if it's got a little bit of romance in there, I always seem to want to read those even more. I'm 22 and while 2016 was my worst reading year ever, I'm back to reading as much as I can as fast as I can.

I'm really looking forward to this book club!

I love reading new adult, and also books on psychology and other mental illnesses. New adult has definitely become a favorite genre of mine but I read basically anything. I'm always craving a good NA book, though. Right now, my favorite NA author is Jessica Sorensen. I'm looking forward to reading books by Cora Carmack, Colleen hoover, and other cool NA authors. I'm just happy to be in this group.

message 28: by Miss (new)

Miss Kitten’s Corner (misskittenscorner) I am very excited to join this book club. My name is Keianna, but you can call me Kei. I became a reader about a year ago and started reading New Adult about 2 months ago. So I'm still kind of new to the genre. I like to read Young Adult if I'm not feeling the New Adult genre. I am 17 years old. Turning 18 in 3 months. So, yes I'm still in high school, but can't wait to graduate.

sage Ahhhh rip I forgot to introduce myself aha...the name is Sage, I'm a they/them pronoun user, and I'm ready to fall back into NA. I've been in a pretty bad reading slump so I've been hoping that by joining Goodreads and BookTube I'll be a bit more inspired. Looking forward to discussing books with everyone!~

message 31: by Night Owl Reads (new)

Night Owl Reads (night_owl_413) | 1 comments Hello everyone. The name is Ashlee. I am about to be 29 years old, I live in Massachusetts with my newlywed husband. I have been a reader since I read my very first book, Green Eggs & Ham, but it also runs down the line of woman on my mothers side, they were all readers. My mother would read a 1,000 page Stephen King novel in two nights! I have been reviewing books for both self-publishing and traditional authors for four years. My first serious romance novel I read, I was in high school and it was a Rachel Gibson novel. I fell in love with her books and my love for romance just continued to grow. I first read Fifty Shades in May. of 2013. What I look forward to with this group is getting away from just reading review books in a month, I review so much that I rarely get to just read something I want. So getting to step back and read a book with a group of ladies that just love to read to read, it's going to be fun. But the writer in me will still leave a review, I can't help that.

Michaela Wagner (michaelawagner) | 1 comments Hey lovelies!!
I'm Michaela and I'm 23, from Australia!!
My fave genre is fantasy, and occasional SciFi. I really want to get into some good contemps, just for lighter reading, and YA contemp is rarely my thing! So this should be a good way to find some good NA novels!!

I've got a Booktube, bookstagram and (slightly neglected) Book Blog if you're interested!

Hello y'all!
I know I'm really late on introducing myself, but better late than never! Am I right? Anyways, like Beyonce says in her Run the World song, "I'm from Houston, Texas baybeee." Lol. I'm 24 years old. My favorite genres are New Adult (obviously.), YA Fantasy, and lately I've been also getting a bit more into SciFi. I am trash for the hate-to-love troupe. I a thousand times prefer the male characters to be intellectual than just good looking. Although, it doesn't hurt either if he is both. This also goes for the female character. I love when both of the love interest spare off in a word match. I think I just described Connor and Rose from the Addicted/Calloway Sister Series. Which sounds about right because they are my favorite couple ever!

Here are my other social media where I talk even more about my obsession with books. Feel free to reach me at any of the places below!

Drake and Josh?! I used to watch that with my son, such a funny show.

message 36: by Susan (new)

Susan MacIver (susanmaciver) Hi everyone, my name is Susan, I'm from sunny Arizona, and I'm thrilled about this club! I was told recently that my book fits the New Adult genre which I previously didn't know existed. I went searching for a group to join that knew more about it and I am so lucky to have found this one! Now that I kind of know what NA is, I realize that many of the books I've enjoyed fit into this genre and I'm excited for all of the reading suggestions I'm sure to get out of this group!!

message 40: by Erika (new)

Erika Maki | 3 comments Hi everyone, my name is Erika and and I am 23 years old. I recently discovered the New Adult genre last year, and quickly became obsessed with it. My favourite genres are NA, YA Paranormal Fantasy and I've recently become interested in YA Sci-fi and Dystopian. I also hope to get into YA High Fantasy this year since this is a genre I rarely read.

I am also a BookTuber and my channel is Maniacal Reader. When Carol announced there was going to be this group, I was so excited because I never would have discovered NA if it weren't for her. I'm looking forward to reading some awesome New Adult books and making some new friends.

message 45: by Corinne (last edited Jun 05, 2017 07:42PM) (new)

Corinne | 3 comments I'm Corinne, New adult is my favorite genre because it still has a young adult feel and young characters, but it has more realistic situations, like couples having steamy moments without fading to black, more drama, more darkness. My favorite books of the genre are:
Slammed (Slammed, #1) by Colleen Hoover Transcendence by Shay Savage Hopeless (Hopeless, #1) by Colleen Hoover Maybe Someday (Maybe, #1) by Colleen Hoover The Opportunist (Love Me with Lies, #1) by Tarryn Fisher The V Girl by Mya Robarts A Hunger Like No Other (Immortals After Dark #2) by Kresley Cole The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay Puddle Jumping (Puddle Jumping, #1) by Amber L. Johnson Branded (Sinners #1) by Abi Ketner A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2) by Sarah J. Maas A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3) by Sarah J. Maas A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1) by Sarah J. Maas Rhapsodic (The Bargainer, #1) by Laura Thalassa The Queen of All that Dies (The Fallen World, #1) by Laura Thalassa Paper Princess (The Royals, #1) by Erin Watt The Law of Moses (The Law of Moses, #1) by Amy Harmon Reclaiming the Sand (Reclaiming the Sand, #1) by A. Meredith Walters The Deal (Off-Campus, #1) by Elle Kennedy A Hunger Like No Other (Immortals After Dark #2) by Kresley Cole

I'll post these books in the recommendations. I hope I discover books with these group, preferably fantasy, science fiction, dystopian, and paranormal New adult.
