Author Favorite: New Adult Books From Abbi Glines

I'm going through this phase right now, I've started reading the new trendy "New Adult" or "Smut Fiction" is what people are calling this genre. Here is a good article explaining more about smut Fiction from ABCNews.

Personally, I kind of got bored reading about teens. That is not to say I won't read YA anymore, because I still love to read about fantasy, dystopian, and paranormal. YA authors such as Cinda Williams Chima, Tahereh Mafi, and Julie Kagawa are some of the best in those genre's. I wouldn't want smut fiction in The Demon King series, it would ruin it. This walk on the wild side has introduced a bunch of new authors for my reading pleasure. I have tried some adult books like Beautifully Damaged by L.A.Fiore, Playing For Keeps by R.L.Mathewson, Seal Of Honor by Tonya Burrows, and Real by Katy Evans (my favorite). I like to keep my options open, it's been fun reading about different age groups. Seal Of Honor is a favorite of mine, just because of the intense action. The characters in that book are in their late thirties. I enjoyed it very much. Not near as much drama as the "New Adult" college books.

I started reading new adult/smut fiction from Abbi Glines. I was excited to actually meet her at BEA this year and get her signature, along with Jamie McGuire author of Beautiful Disaster/Walking Disaster. Glines is a wonderful and fun writer. Most of the characters, if not all, are still in college. All the stories usually follow the same pattern: boy gets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl. It's pretty straightforward and simple really. Drama, heated make-out scenes, and more angsty drama. If I wanted to read something that takes a lot of thought I would go back to The Demon King series by Cinda Williams Chima, which I just love. However, I am just in a mood, for a quick shallow read right now. I don't think there is anything wrong with that. You could say it's my poison here lately.

So if you are 18+ I would say pick up one of these books (pictured up top) from Abbi Glines and start something different. Who knows, I might be back on the YA train next week, but for now, I'm enjoying my smut fiction.

Other good "New Adult" books for consideration:

Damaged by H.M. Ward
The Coincidence of Callie & Kayden by Jessica Sorensen
Obsession by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Beautiful Disaster/Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire
Rush Me by Allison Parr
The Bet by Rachel Van Dyken
True by Erin McCarthy
