Q: When you step out of your USUAL genre what do you like to read? Best books in that genre?

My usual genres are urban fantasy and paranormal romance. But lately I've been reading more new adult contemporary romance. I'm slightly addicted to all of the crazy emotional drama and sexual tension that have been a large part of the new adult stories that I've read.

  So what about you? 
What do you read when you step out of your usual genre?

Old follower. Have a great week!

Carmen Jenner said...

Oh I love crazy emotional drama and sexual tension!!! How did you know? ;)
Slammed was just so, so incredible, I'm still on the fence with Beautiful Disaster, I both love and hated it, and I can't wait to read Thoughtless!
Thanks for stopping by my FF'S for this week

Emotional drama AND sexual tension? Hmm... I may have to reevaluate my no contemporary romance rule. LOL

I've seen these books in my reccomendations but I'm not usually into contemperary books so I've been a little hestiant to pick them up. Maybe I'll have to give it a try. xD Thanks for stopping by!

YA vs New Adult. I'm confuzzed. It just sounds like more books without smut. LOL

Tribute Books Mama said...

Have a great week-end.

Jennifer said...

I have all of these on my wishlist, but haven't gotten around to any of them. I am loving the New Adult genre too. Thanks for sharing! Old follower.

Maeva said...

I have recently started reading more Contemporary YA Fiction and enjoyed a few of them, but I guess adult fiction would be where I got the most out of my usual genre...

Alexa said...

Oh I was just looking into Thoughtless and Effortless and they seem like such good reads. I'm really loving the New Adult genre as well. I think it fills a void that was in the market before.

I hope you continue to find great books in this new genre. :)

For some reason I just can't handle too much romance xD I'm a prude apparently, haha!

I'm a new follower though :D I love that header graphic! Here's my blog:
