So sorry for the late post guys! I've been sick and since it's spring break work has been pretty busy. This week we're talking about the genre New Adult.
I guess I first heard about New Adult about a year or so ago. I was confused as to whether or not it was considered YA or not because I was reading about it on a lot of YA blogs. So I wasn't really sure what it really was.
So, according to my understanding, it's written like YA but it's for a more mature audience because of the sexual content. These New Adult novels are usually contemporaries following characters that are college aged.
Even though I still haven't read a new adult novel (I planned to read one by now but it didn't happen), I have two that I really want to read and will hopefully do so soon!
I would really like to see a New Adult fantasy novel! Now that would be something that I would definitely read!
Right now, New Adult is usually published by indie publishers. This makes them a little bit harder to find in hard copy but also very cheap in e-book form. Hopefully, sometime soon the big publishing houses will see how well New Adult is doing and start publishing some New Adult novels. I really think New Adult can be something big and exciting in the future!
Do you guys like/read New Adult? Let me know in the comments!
