NEW ADULT.

Friday, September 28, 2012
Hey guys,

So some of you may be wondering what the heck is New Adult? Well I actually found a good article that pretty much sums this genre up in a few sentences. Although genres are flexible and the definitions do change, I thought this explanation would help:

"New Adult fiction will most likely focus on young people, college age, late teens to early twenties, transitioning into the modern adult world. New Adult literature emerges from the popularity of Young Adult literature."  - Stacey Laatsch

Short and simple. Right? Well this genre is anything but simple. Lol just like life this it has some really great twists and turns. When I think of New Adult, I think of the transition from YA to an actual ADULT. Which makes sense why the focus would be on college and your late teens to early twenties.


So what does this have to do with Boekie's Book Reviews? Well after reading Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire and Easy by Tammara Webber I've found myself, as well as hundreds of other readers asking, "So what do I read next?"

I've decided that October will be a challenge for us to compile a list of great books to read next. That means we're going to be reaching out to contemporary YA/New Adult authors and we're hoping by the end of October, that we'll have a proper what to read next list for those of you who've been dying to know what should be next, on your angsty/contemporary romance list.

If you know an author or if you're an author of a YA/New Adult contemporary romance please let us know. We're trying to reach out to authors that might be a great fit for our event. The point of this is to give you as readers a recommendation list. And we're trying to open this up for authors who have yet to be discovered, but who have an amazing story to tell. Please feel free to share this post.

We'll be coming up with an event name, activities and etc...
