Discussing New Adult Novels & a Mocha
Drink of the Week: Cafe Mocha
I am usually not a huge mocha fan because I am not a big chocolate person and a mocha is super sweet. However, every once in a while I like to indulge myself and have one. Chocolate and coffee go well together and balance each other.
Book Topic: Discussing New Adult Novels
One thing I have noticed about new adult books is the popular topic of sexual assault. That is why I love when I read a book where the author handles it in a unique way.
I also really like reading a new adult novel that involves a topic that I haven't come across yet. This instantly intrigues me because a new topic is nice once and a while.
While some of my favorite new adult novels involve sexual assault as the tough topic, I feel like it is the go to topic for new adult authors and it has become a little cliche. I think each author puts their own twist on the plot and builds their own character arcs but the topic itself is a bit overdone for me. That being said, I have found that I am starting to really enjoy NA novels that go outside the box and deal with one of the other "tough topic" issues out there.
All in all, I have loved almost every new adult novel that I have read and 90% of the books I am reading and reviewing are in the new adult genre. Looking at my TBR, I don't think I will run out of any new adult novels to read for a long time.
What about you? Have you fallen in love with the new adult genre too? What are some of your favorite "tough topics"? What are some of your favorite new adult novels?
