My Fav New Adult Titles Read in 2014

Last Christmas break I went on a new adult fiction reading binge to get a handle on the genre. I discovered, that like any other genre, it has its tropes - you can check out my list of them here. It's powerful to know the tropes / cliches of a genre, especially if you're attempting to write within it. ;)

My new adult reading list grew throughout the year and I discovered titles that drew me in, had me recommending them to friends, made me fall in love, or laugh, or cry, or were so damn good - I even re-read them. But most of all - I learned a ton about what works for me within this genre - and that I was surprisingly comfortable with a wide range of "heat" levels. Some of my favs were downright dirty reads and others remained on the sweet side.

So...in no particular order...here be a few of the standout new adult titles I read in 2014:
