I'm reaching that point in the month/year where I need to take a break from YA and expand into adult fiction. I've read a few YA books recently (Throne of Glass, Team Human, Endlessly, Beta, Rift) and will be writing and posting those reviews here -- so yes, this site will still focus on YA.
But expanding into adult literature is kind of daunting. I know the really, really, really big name authors but I don't generally know many other adult authors. I recently read A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness and its sequel, Shadow of Night, and loved both books -- the science/paranormal/philosophy/history/etc. + developed characters + believable romance + author who isn't afraid to make the reader work -- though they were a bit slow for me too. I own The Night Circus and am planning on reading that one soon as well as Melissa de la Cruz's Serpent's Kiss. Can you recommend me a book that you've recently read & enjoyed?
Some of my recent favs in YA have been: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers, Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter, The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead, Arcadia Awakens by Kai Meyer, & For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund.
Please help a girl out :D.
[No non-fiction please!]
[Preferably book has romance!]
