I Want it That Way

This is my first experience with a book by Ann Aguirre and I was really excited! I know she is a popular author in genres other than New Adult, but when I saw this book was coming out I needed to read it. I was a huge fan of The Backstreet...

Dirty Rowdy Thing - Wild Seasons, #2

I was very excited for the opportunity to read Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren! This author duo has written some of the best books this year. I thought this would be the book that I might not love. Well, they certainly did not disappo...

Burn for Me - Hidden Legacy, #1

Don't let the fact that this is advertised as a romance novel fool you. Romance is not at the forefront of the novel, but it does take up some space. I am a huge fan of the author team of Ilona Andrews, and I devour everything they produce....

Sharing You

Molly McAdams has quickly become a favorite of mine in the New Adult genre. I am always so excited to read her next book. Sharing You surprised me. I really didn't think I could learn to love another book by McAdams. The subject matter was...

Harder - Caroline & West, #2

Harder is the second novel in Robin York's Caroline & West series. It picks up right where Deeper left. I liked that because I didn’t feel like I had to play catch up to where the characters are "now". I have to admit that I was a little an...

Illusion - Chronicles of Nick, #5

Sherrilyn Kenyon has created a world that is truly unique in the Chronicles of Nick. The characters are one of a kind and the situations they get into are perilous, but you know the good guys are going to end up on top. In Illusion, the fif...

Mud Vein

Thriller/suspense is not usually a genre I reach for when I'm searching for my next book to read. Yet, Colleen Hoover, an amazing author who has written books I've loved, kept talking about Mud Vein and I knew I had to pick it up! Believe m...

Sweet Filthy Boy - Wild Seasons, #1

Christina Lauren is a dynamic writing duo! Each book i read by them is better than the last, even if I loved the previous book I always seem to love the next one more. To say I had high expectations for "Sweet Filthy Boy" would be an unders...

Grim Shadows - Roaring Twenties, #2

There is just something about the 1920's that really calls to me as a setting for a novel. It doesn't even really matter what kind of novel. The style, the language, the culture, and the atmosphere make a great backdrop! Jenn Bennett has do...

Copperhead - Ironskin, #2

Copperhead by Tina Connolly is enchanting, but lacks finesse in its pacing. I enjoyed that the sequel gave more of an explanation of the fey, and the real feelings of the people towards the fey, which was sort of glossed over in Ironskin. H...

Deeper - Caroline & West, #1

I really don't know what it is about New Adult novels that draw me in so much. Is it that I'm close in age with most of the characters? Or that I missed the dorm life of college? Perhaps I just enjoy twisting my emotions at breakneck speeds...

Deceiving Lies - Forgiving Lies, #2

Are you ready for a wild ride? Just when you think everything is going well, and your life is finally on track, you get thrown for a loop. Deceiving Lies does not pick up right at the end of the first book, but it fills in the missing piece...

Inferno - Chronicles of Nick, #4

Inferno is very aptly named, because everything in Nick's life is heating up. There was so much going on in this book, and Kenyon did a great job of progressing the story as well as opening it up for further installments. Nick is trying not...

Be with Me - Wait for You

J. Lynn is not new to the New Adult scene, but she certainly knows how to make the genre seem completely new to me! While I didn't find Be With Me to be as good as the first book in the series, it was still enjoyable and refreshing. Teresa...

Tidal - Watersong, #3

Tidal by Amanda Hocking puts a new spin on sirens and they are definitely something I wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley. The world Hocking creates is imaginative and dark. But it isn't without its flaws. Gemma and Harper have had a hard...
