Hi guys! It’s time for a few more book recommendations. A couple of months ago I recommend a few of my Favorite New Adult books (here) but because I’ve been reading so many amazing new adult books in the past couple of months I decided to recommend you a few more. I’ve been reading a lot of new adult, mostly because most of the ARC’s I read are in this genre, and I love to read new adult so I need to recommend a few more books that might not be that well-known. So let’s see which books made to this list 🙂 .
Chasing the Dream Series by Elizabeth Briggs
Classical musician Maddie Taylor secretly dreams of a louder life, but geeky girls like her don’t get to be rock stars. That is, until tattooed singer Jared Cross catches her playing guitar and invites her to join his band on The Sound, a reality TV show competition.
Once on the show, Maddie discovers there’s more to Jared than his flirty smile and bad boy reputation. With each performance their attraction becomes impossible to ignore, but when the show pressures them to stay single, they’re forced to keep their relationship secret.
As the competition heats up, Jared will do whatever it takes for his band to win, and Maddie must decide if following her dream is worth losing her heart.
This is one of my favorite New Adult series out there. I’ve read every book that is out so far and I loved every single one of them. Everyone you loves new adult should read these books because they are amazing and the characters are really well done. Actually, if you want to start this series the first book, More than Music, is currently free for Kindle on Amazon so you should go there get it and read it as soon as possible. Also, if you want you can read my reviews for the four books already out, here, here, here and here.
Undecided by Julianna Keyes
Nora Kincaid has one goal for her second year of college: be invisible. Last year’s all-party-no-study strategy resulted in three failed classes and two criminal charges, and if she messes up again she’ll lose her scholarship. But there’s one problem with her plan for invisibility, and his name is Crosbie Lucas: infamous party king, general hellraiser…and her new roommate’s best friend.
Crosbie’s reckless reputation and well-known sexcapades aren’t part of Nora’s studious new strategy, but as she’s quickly learning, her new plan is also really boring. When Crosbie’s unexpected gestures of friendship pull her head out of her books long enough to see past his cocky veneer, she’s surprised to find a flawed and funny guy beneath it all. The muscles don’t hurt, either.
But as Nora starts to fall for Crosbie, the weight of one of last year’s bad decisions grows even heavier. Because three failing grades and two misdemeanors are nothing compared to the one big secret she’s hiding…
This is another one that I absolutely loved. This book was amazing and funny and had amazing characters. It’s impossible not to love those characters. Nora and Crosbie are an amazing couple and it’s impossible not to love them. You can read my review for this book here.
Until It’s Right by Jamie Howard
Haley Mitchell is tired of moping. With her broken heart repaired with a thick layer of duct tape, she’s ready to put her ex behind her and move on. After a chance encounter in a club, she’s convinced she’s met Mr. Perfect. But when he accidentally gives her the wrong number, the stranger on the other end of her texts becomes her confidant.
Kyle Lawson has always had more luck with computers than women. So when the new temp, Haley, arrives, he has the misfortune of falling for her, only to land firmly in the friend zone. But when he learns the mysterious woman he’s been texting is actually Haley, he keeps the entire thing a secret.
As things move straight from platonic to decidedly hot, Kyle must come clean about his secret texting identity and risk losing the woman he’s fallen in love with.
This book… this book was so good. The relationship between Haley and Kyle was one of the cutest things ever and I loved how they started out as friends and only after it developed to something more. The side characters were also amazing and once again it’s impossible not to love this book so you should read it. Click here to read my review.
Keep Me Still by Caisey Quinn
Layla Flaherty had the perfect life, or close to it. Until a stranger gunned her parents down right in front of her, leaving her with seizure inducing PTSD. After years of trying to pass as normal and failing miserably, she resigns herself to being invisible. But new to town Landen O’Brien sees her, and he likes what he sees. Much to Layla’s surprise, he doesn’t freak out when she has a seizure in front of him. He does the exact opposite, calming her until the tremors subside. But Landen has secrets of his own. Secrets that both bind them together and tear them apart.
Scarred by loss, Layla leaves her hometown of Hope Springs, Georgia, hoping to put her painful past behind her and start over in college in California. When she runs into Landen at freshmen orientation, she has a choice to make. Reinforce those steel walls she’s built up around herself or give the only boy who can keep her still a second chance.
Landen’s more than ready to tear down those walls but this time when they come crashing down, they might bury her.
I got this book for free on Amazon a couple of week ago and last week I didn’t know what to read so I decided to start this one. Good thing I did because I loved this book. Actually, I loved this book and I also loved the prequel and sequel novellas that are included. I loved this so much that I read this in about 24 hours. Unlike the previous books I’ve talked about this one is quite heartbreaking. This book and the novellas broke my heart to tiny little pieces but it was so good that I had to talk about it here. You really should get this one and read it.
The One That Got Away (Kingston Ale House #1) by A.J. Pine
How far will one man go for the woman he’s loved since high school?
Jamie Kingston has been Brynn Chandler’s best friend since middle school. Only once was their friendship tested—when Brynn gave Jamie a single kiss. Since then, they’ve had an unspoken agreement never to cross that line again, and she’s ready to let go of the past and move on.
But Jamie has loved Brynn for as long as he can remember, and now that he’s ready to tell her, she has her sights set on someone else. Knowing this is his last chance, he asks Brynn to go on a two-week road trip. But their time alone brings old hurts to the surface, and Brynn has to decide if the one that got away lies at the end of the journey or if he’s been by her side all along.
This one is one of my most recent reads (it’s actually the last book I finished) and I really enjoyed it. I loved the characters and I loved how it was a best-friends fall in love kind of thing. My only problem is that it was a little bit frustrating sometimes but if you can deal with that you should read this one too. You can read my review here.
So these are a few more books that I want to recommend. Have you read any of these books or would you read any? Which New Adult books should I read? If you have any recommendations tell me in the comments 🙂 .
