Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Reasons Why I Love NA

top 10 tuesday

Hello, welcome back to another Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is:

Ten Reasons I Love Xcould be a certain book, character, author, your indie bookstore, a fandom, a tv show, reading, a hobby, a genre. Honestly anything you want to gush about.

I’m doing 10 Reasons Why I Love NA, because I feel that there’s still a lot of stigma in regards to this particular genre, and because I love it!

    I completely agree with all of this. I hate the stigma that NA has because most of the times it isn’t true. NA is not only about sex and romance like a lot of people think and most of the NA books we both read had a lot of important plots and storylines. Just think about Shut Out and how important the message in that book was. Everyone should read this to understand how good NA books can be.

    I avoided reading NA for the longest time because I was one of the people who believed that they’re basically erotica (not that there’s anything wrong with that, just not my cup of tea!) but of late, I’ve been really enjoying New Adult novels for basically all the reasons you just mentioned 😛 Great list!

      I get why you thought that before, because given the covers, I thought mostly the same until I tried it. Truth is, they’re not much different than most YA, but just a little bit more adult-y

        Don’t judge a book by it’s cover is apt for this misunderstood genre 😉 I think Colleen Hoover is who really got me into NA – her covers are milder than most others 😛 From the few books I’ve read, I think the characters are a bit more mature in NA but not much else is different between NA and YA.

    I haven’t read any NA yet, but I think the idea of it is beginning to appeal to me more and more as I age. Now that I’m in college and done with high school, I’m finding it harder to relate to many of the things that characters in YA books are experiencing. NA might be the solution to my problem!

    Great post! I haven’t read many NA books and the ones I have read have been meh for me, but this list was eye opening to a lot of misconceptions I had. I had no idea about them representing diversity so well, so yay for that 😉

    • My Tiny Obsessions says:

      until i started reading more NA, I didn’t know about representation either. truth is, I’ve read several books about several physical problems and limitations, such as several types of paralysis and MS and so on, and there’s some sexual diversity too.

    I must admit I’ve not read many NA books but I’ve loved all ones I have read. I definitely feel like they are a bit more grounded in its realism and I do find myself able to relate to some of their predicaments. Plus you can’t go wrong with some steamy sexy time haha. 😉
