Lovin' los libros

A book blog dedicated to young adult and new adult novels

Feature and Follow Friday #4

By 10:33 PM

 
The Feature & Follow is a weekly event that allows bloggers to get to know each other, and gain more followers! It is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.
 
If you are a new follower, I thank you! I'm looking to do a follower giveaway very soon. Leave me some comment love and let me know so I can follow you back! If my reviews and blog looks like your cup of tea, follow me on Twitter for updates and upcoming giveaway info.
 
Q: What is your guilty pleasure as far as reading? Is it a genre or a certain type of book?
 
Within the last year I have become addicted to New Adult contemporary romance. I definitely love the steamy, swoon-worthy scenes. Some of my favs. are S.C. Stephen's Thoughtless series, Cora Carmack's Losing It, and Tammara Weber's Easy. I am also addicted to urban fantasy/ and paranormal books. Jeaniene Frost's Huntress series, Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse series, and Karen Marie Moning's Fever series are all guilty pleasure reads for me.
 
OH. And my best friend pointed out that I have a thing for love triangles. I was in serious denial when she said that, but after a few moments of reflection, I realized she was right. I have a love/hate relationship with them, that's for sure.
 
What about you guys? What's your reading guilty pleasure?

  9. With Thoughtless you really do have a love triangle! New Adult is slowly growing on me, but I hate the name they've given it. I adored Easy!

    1. Which is funny, because I thought that love triangle was going to be the death of me. That book hurt my heart SO much. I agree, the name 'New Adult' is kind of lame.

    1. New Adult is really just that most of the characters are college age. I prefer new adult romance, so think in between YA romance and Adult romance. I'm probably explaining it badly. LOL.

  13. I also have a love/hate relationshipe with Love triangles, sometimes I hate them, but other times I love them. I guess it depands on the book.

    1. It definitely depends on the book. I've read some where I feel like the author just threw in another character just because. I don't like those types.

  14. I haven't gotten a chance to read any new adult books yet, but it definitely sounds like I need to start! I'm trying to figure out what my guilty pleasures would be. Maybe the House of Night series, lol.

    1. Yes! They are alot of fun to read. I love reading about college life! I think it's because I miss being on campus myself!! I haven't read House of Night yet. I was planning to start this summer. Thanks for stopping by Kelley!

  18. I've only read a few New Adult books, but I really liked them. Have you read J. Lynn's (Jennifer L. Armentrout) Wait for You. That was fantastic!

    I actually hate (with a passion) love triangles. I just don't get them. That's just me, though :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I haven't read Wait For You yet. I have it on my Nook though!! I was saving it for a fun Spring Break read. Love triangles are not for everyone. Sometimes it's nice just having the book just focus on the two people and the buildup of getting together.

      Delete
  19. Contemporary books aren't my thing, but I'm glad that you enjoy them! :D I used to look forward to love triangles, but after reading so many of them, my excitement for them has died down a little bit. I don't vehemently hate them with a passion, but I don't exactly like them either. xD

    Thanks for stopping by! New Follower. :D

  21. haha I have a love-hate relationship with love-triangles too (when they're done well!) I also REALLY want to get into Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress Series - I actually own book 1 :D Oh and I mentioned KMM's Fever series too ♥!

  22. I don't think that I've read any books that would be considered New Adult but like you learned on my blog, YA does it for me.

  29. I haven't ventured into New Adult yet just because it seems primarily romance and I tend to shy away from that. I'm actually hoping that it'll expand to include other genres like fantasy and dystopias like you get with Young Adult. If that was the focus, with romance tossed in, then I wouldn't mind at all! ;)

    Thanks for the follow. Following back via BlogLovin!

    1. I would also like for it to venture into the different genres and mix it in with fantasy and whatnot. Those would be awesome to read! Thanks for following back!

  30. Thanks for stopping by my blog. :D
    I haven't read any of those books, but this whole 'New Adult' thing confuses me, I'm not sure what is classed in it or not. I've seen comments above about Katie McGarry's Pushing the Limits books which I have read and LOVED, but I still counted them as Young Adult.
    Am I the only one lost? Probably! Is it like YA for slightly older readers? Like the comment above though, I'm really not into the heavy romance scenes.
    Oh well, I'll carry on happily in my own little world. :D

    Have a great week.

    1. Yes. I would say it is YA for slightly older readers- typically New adult focuses on the main characters being in college or around college age. I have not read Pushing the Limits yet, but my signed copy is waiting for me to read it! Hopefully soon!

  33. I haven't read much Sookie Stackhouse but I just bought the first book and am excited to read it :) My best friend loves the TV show so I thought I'd give the books a try before checking out the show. Another one of my guilty pleasures I forgot to add is Pretty Little Liars. I have to admit I got hooked into the TV show before reading the books but now I have the first one so I can start that, too :) happy reading!

    1. Yes, definitely check the books out first. The series, although great, doesn't really follow the books very well. I never did get into PTL, but I'd like to at some point! I hope you like the first Sookie book!!
