I've never heard of "New Adult." I'm trying to debate how much YA I want to read nowadays anyway. The school setting and teenage characters just don't seem appealing to me. I'm sure there are plenty of really good YA books and I wouldn't mind reading them. I'd love to read New Adult as well. I suppose it all comes down to if they book is written well enough to appeal to their target audience as well as older adults.

I honestly haven't come across any books that I would consider NA, though I've heard of the genre. I would be willing to read them if I did, as long as the plot sounded interesting. I'm pretty much an equal opportunity reader.

I have never heard of the "New Adult" fiction category, but it seems intriguing. It's a tough decision for me, truthfully. I like the appeal of YA books, but I am moving into the "new adult" stage of my life, and I am finding that YA books are slowly becoming less and less relatable as the years go by. Unfortunate for me, as YA was, for a long time, my favorite genre. I can only hope to stay up-to-date with the YA novels for my future students!

Try J. Lynn for good NA books. The author's real name is Jennifer L. Armentrout and usually only writes YA which are pretty good too.

Iv never noticed the term new adult I tend to go for a young adult book although now I know the meaning of new adult I have read and enjoyed a fair about of books that fit in the category.

I read both, but more young adult than new adult. I guess it all depends on the genre of the book.
