Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten ALL TIME Favorite NEW ADULT Books

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is Top Ten ALL TIME Favorite Books Of X Genre. The Broke and the Bookish is being really mean and making us narrow our favorites down. It’s going to be hard to do, but I think I can handle it…maybe. My genre is going to be New Adult for this post and I couldn’t just stick to top ten. I had to go Top 17 in no particular order. Even then, I feel like I’ve left some out. 🙁 For some of these, if I loved the entire series, I’m just picking the first book. If you click on the book cover, you’ll be taken to the Goodreads page for that book.

I probably should have picked a genre I love less. LOL. So, here we go. In no particular order…

1. The Deal by Elle Kennedy


2. Bright Side by Kim Holden


3. Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

4. Nine Minutes by Beth Flynn

5. Addicted to You by Krista & Becca Ritchie

6. There is No Light in Darkness by Claire Contreras

7. Him by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy

8. One Tiny Lie by K.A. Tucker


9. The Year We Fell Down by Sarina Bowen

10. You and Everything After by Ginger Scott


11. Left Drowning by Jessica Park


12. My Perfect Mistake by Kelly Siskind


13. More Than This by Jay McLean


14. Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan


15. Making Faces by Amy Harmon

16. Easy by Tammara Webber

17. Sincerely, Carter by Whitney G.


I know there are so many of my favorite NA authors and books missing from this list, but I had to narrow it down, so…

    1. Lol. I can understand why. There’s so many different types of NA books. I guess you just have to find one that speaks to you. 🙂

    1. It’s a good one if you like a little bit of suspense and mystery. I absolutely love Claire Contreras’ writing. I hope you enjoy it!

  1. Wow, that’s a lot of new adult titles! We share some similar faves like Sarina Bowen, Elle Kennedy and Tammara Webber. I need to look up the ones from your list that I haven’t read yet.

    1. Yeah, I couldn’t limit it! I kept finding more I love. I hope you found some new ones on here that you’ll enjoy.

  2. Picking your favorite of all time is tough, isn’t it? When people insist on asking me that, I answer with my current favorites of all time. Is that a contradiction? Nah.

  3. Making Faces is one of the my favorite books ever! Archer’s Voice is also good, and Sincerely, Carter. Good list.

  4. I usually only read YA. Out of your list, however, I have read EASY and I loved it. I also enjoyed PAPER PRINCESS by Erin Watt, as well; it’s more NA than YA.

    1. Paper Princess is definitely more NA than YA. If you enjoyed it and are looking to try more NA, I’d highly suggest The Deal by Elle Kennedy. She’s one half of Erin Watt. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I am still not 100% clear on what constitutes NA. Is it only more contemporary? How is it different than erotica? It’s all a gray area to me, although I think I’d enjoy the genre nevertheless. I just can’t wrap my brain around how they are different.

  6. NA is a genre I’m really unfamiliar with. I haven’t heard of any of the titles on your list. At first glimpse, after clicking through to read the blurbs on GR, they seem like they’d be pretty fast-paced. Fun list 🙂

    1. Lol. Yeah, it makes all of them. It just had such an emotional impact on me. Made me think about how I live my life. 🙂 I guess I should read Falling Kingdoms!

  7. So many on your list. I don’t really read new adult as it is mostly contemporary, and contemporary and I rarely get along which is a shame really. Great list.
