I agree with what atiptoes posted a while ago. There is a new genre being created - new adult. I've only recently started to notice that there are more titles in that age range popping up this past year or so than before. 3 that come to mind
Foreplay by Sophie Jordan
On Dublin Street by Samantha Young
Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski
Is it just me or don't the covers look similar?

Carrie Butler's novel Strength, book 1 in the Mark of Nexus series, is going on sale August 19th thru the 23rd for 99c. It's a great paranormal NA read. And Courage, book 2, will be out soon.

I've just finished reading two AMAZING paranormal YA series. The Crescent Chronicles by Alyssa Rose Ivy, here's the first one; Flight: Book 1 of the Crescent Chronicles, it's a really great series, all three books are out, the hero is almost done college and the heroine is just starting. I would have to say my favourite is the Significance Series by Shelly Crane, I absolutely love it! This takes place just as the heroine is graduating, the hero if I remember correctly is one year older. All the books in this series are out too, she even did a short story somewhere in between. Here's the link to the first one; Significance (A Significance Novel).

Oh and one more thing, I believe the Alyssa Rose Ivy series is all on sale at the moment, the first one is $1, the second is $3 and the final is $4.

Happy Reading!

These days, few young women attend college to get their Mrs degree, the way it was a generation ago. I don't know how much is that they want to choose where they want to live before they start looking for a serious relationship, or something else.

Try doing a search in lists on goodreads. com for "new adult" or "new adult romance". I believe that is the unofficial genre name for books that fall under this category. Hope that helps.

I stumbled across this conversation because Kristan so kindly mentioned STAY! Thank you, Kristan!

Keep an eye out for the upcoming book FANGIRL by Rainbow Rowell. I think it will be exactly what you're looking for. :)
