Hello and happy Monday!
In case anyone needs a reminder or is new to the Bookmark Chronicles, here are the rules: Every Monday I will post a This or That Challenge where we will choose between two characters or scenarios. On Friday we will see which scenario/character wins. Feel free to either comment your choice below or make your own post and link it back here!
By no means do you have to feel obligated to do every single challenge, but I would love to hear all of your opinions! If you can only really talk about one scenario then go for it. Also, if you have any suggestions or would like to write a guest post about any of the This or That? topics let me know!
Do you read New Adult (NA)?
You’re probably already familiar with the term ‘young adult’ right? Well, essentially NA sort of similar but catered to an older age bracket. Rachel says, “NA books tend to focus on protagonists aged 18-25, and can centre on themes such as college, leaving home, and career choices, as well as negotiating more adult relationships and some more serious/darker themes such as abuse, drugs, and mental illness.”
She also says that many times it does also include sex and/or chemistry build up. For that reason, it is often confused with erotica, but they are not the same thing. If you want more details click the link above to read Rachel’s full post. It explains everything very nicely.
So, to answer my own question: No. I have not (yet) read anything that classifies as NA. But Rachel is the second person to recommend books by Colleen Hoover so I have added those to my never ending TBR. That will probably be a definite goal for my 2017 TBR since I’ve already got set books for 2016.
What about you? Are you familiar with NA? Have you read it? If so, what did you think? Let me know!
