Top Five Favorite Books in New Adult Romance

5. Just One Day by Gayle Forman– I flew through this book. I couldn’t put it down. The European setting, memorable characters, and a romance that is subtle yet hot, drew me in. I couldn’t help but cheer for Allyson and Will. A love story where the odds are stacked against the couple finding happiness makes the reunion all the more sweet!

4. If I Stay & Where She Went by Gayle Forman– Okay, technically, I’m breaking the rules here. To me, these two books are a package deal, so I grouped them together. Also, they technically aren’t NA, but I’m sure you’ll forgive me…I hope? This story, Mia and Adam’s journey, has stayed with me for years. I love a story where the characters are put in an impossible situation and have to fight like hell to survive. I was also drawn to Mia and Adam, as they are both musicians. I took years of piano lessons and am a classically trained vocalist. Any book that is centered on a love of music will pull me in instantly.

3. Faking It by Cora Carmack– I fell for this book because of the unlikely pairing of Max and Cade. At the end of Losing It, I felt Cade’s pain. I love Cade and was sad for him. I was glad when Cora gave him his own book and happy ending. Not to mention the fact that Cade and Max are musicians. I’m a sucker for books featuring musicians!

2. Easy by Tammara Webber– Not only is this book a fantastic read, it will always hold a special place in my heart, because it’s the first New Adult novel I ever read. Easy is the book that made me want to write New Adult. Love, love, love this book!

1. Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover– This book is my number one favorite for so many reasons. I love how Colleen collaborated with Griffin Peterson on the music that is featured throughout the novel. That is brilliant! It takes the reading experience to a whole new level. I LOVED listening to the songs as I read them in the book.

I also love the characters in this book, mainly Ridge. He’s a beautifully written character and I enjoyed the parts of the book from his POV. More books need to feature diverse characters like Ridge. I’m still in love with him!
Oh, and Ridge plays the guitar (which is so sexy). I’m sensing a theme with my list! I LOVE MUSICIANS!

You know a book is outstanding when you can’t stop listening to the soundtrack and rereading all your favorite parts! Maybe Someday is that book for me!

5_7 Meyer_Across the Distance_E-BookThere’s a drawer I never open. It holds a picture I never look at. It reminds me of a day I hate to remember, but I’ll never forget.

I’d give anything to be like the other girls on campus. Going to parties, flirting with boys, planning for a future. But that’s not me. And hasn’t been since the day my parents died. The only thing that got me through was Griffin. Even though I didn’t have my family, I always had him. Only, now I’m not so sure I do.

It’s not just the eleven hundred miles separating us now that I’m at college. Or his band finally taking off, and all the gigs and girls suddenly demanding his time. It’s as if everything is different-the way we talk, the way we text . . . the way he looks at me and the way those looks make me feel.

Griffin has been the only good thing in my life since that horrific day. But I can feel our friendship slipping away-and I’m terrified of what will be left in its place . . .
