Top Ten Tuesday: Ten New Adult Books to Read If You're Iffy About NA

Hey, everyone!

It's Top Ten Tuesday by The Broke and The Bookish! Today's topic is Ten Books Every X Should Read (historical lover, YA reader, ect). I'm doing top ten new adult books to read if you're unsure of the genre. It's definitely a hit or miss when it comes to finding a good NA read, but there are some real gems if you know how to look.

In no real order:

10. Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren

I talk about this one a lot, simply because I enjoyed it so much! Humor, sex, sweet romance and an amazing trip to Paris. 

9. Burying Water by K.A. Tucker

A romantic suspense with plenty of heat, a fantastic hero, and a wildly engaging plot. 

8. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

A very unique tale for the new adult genre, with spellbinding world building. I'm not 100% certain on my feelings on this one (and I really, really hope there isn't a love triangle in the next book...), but it was refreshing!

7. Racing The Sun by Karina Halle

Travel romance!!! I adored this heroine and was incredibly impressed with her thought processes on her relationship with the hero.

6. Killing Sarai by J.A. Redmerski

Action packed and kept me on the edge of my seat!

5. Archer's Voice by Mia Sheridan

Gah, I just loved this book. 

4. Addicted to You by Krista and Becca Ritchie

This book...I had the worst book hangover ever after reading this. It's full of angst (legitimate, well deserved angst), character development, and it made me think. I love the whole series, even if it's too heavy to marathon.

3. The Fall Up by Aly Martinez 

That cover! Beautiful love story with an incredible hero. 

2. Lick by Kylie Scott

Yeaaaaah....total guilty pleasure. 

1. The Hooker and The Hermit by L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid

Hilarious, hugely entertaining, and addictive. 


  1. Really enjoyed Burying Water. I own a couple of these - AOTAR,Hooker and the Hermit, Archer's Voice and Addicted to You. Need to get to them! Great list!

  2. Several of these are on my TBR! Archer's Voice is definitely a great one. I want to read Racing the Sun soon. Great list!

  3. I need to read so many of these Amanda! Especially the Christina Lauren series and anything by Karina Halle. I know she's one of your favorites:)

  4. Some good suggestions. I have read the ones before you get to five but none of your top five Need to change that. I would also recommend the NA series by Cecy Robson. I really loved Chasing River in the Burying Water series.

  5. Thanks for sharing! I want to try more NA. I have The Fall Up on my wish list!


  6. 2 out of 10 I've read, and I'm currently reading Lick :D I have some catching up to do lol

  7. 10, 9, 8 are ones that I must read and will read hopefully soon.

  8. 10 and 9 are two of my faves! Great list :)

  9. Happy to see Addicted to You in this list (of my favorites) and I'm one NA fan so I'm gonne be checking out some of these books you recommended.
