Okay, so there’s a new genre of book out there now called New Adult. Heard of it? I’m not an expert, but from what I gather, these are books where the characters are in college. It’s the transition between YA (young adult) and fiction, usually romance, because from what I’ve heard, the books usually deal with some kind of boy/girl relationship.
Using this definition, I did read books like this a while ago, before the term New Adult was coined. I recently (yesterday!) had a chance to read a NA proposal that I adored. I loved the collegiate setting, yes, but it was the writing that won me over. I can’t say any more about the book because it’s unfinished and unpublished, but it was awesome.
So…have you heard of this New Adult genre? What do you think? Would you read them? Have you?
