The Big Kids’ Table: 5 Adult Fiction Picks (April)

Is it strange that March sped by faster than February when it is a longer month? I can’t believe we are already four months into the year. It doesn’t mean I’m not thrilled because I am! Warmer weather will be here in New York very soon, and life seems a bit more joyous when that […]

Sharon @ Fictionally Inclined - Great list! Added The Jane Austen Marriage Manual to my TBR list! I love all things Jane Austen, and this book looks like a good one.

The Big Kids’ Table: 5 Adult Fiction Picks (March)

Good morning everyone! (It’s not really morning when I’m writing this, I’ll admit. I’m about a week early and listening to the Jessica Darling mix in my bathrobe.) Three months into the new year, and it’s time for another round of new adult fiction books you may or may not be interested in checking out. […]

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - These all sound fantastic, but i’m especially excited to check out The Singles and Where We Belong. They have the summaries that stood out the most to me! Thanks for the post 🙂

The Big Kids’ Table: 5 Adult Contemporary Picks (February)

Estelle here! Wishing you a happy Thursday! It’s a new month and time for another round of The Big Kids’ Table, a feature I started in hopes of focusing on some new adult contemporary reads! As if we all need another book to add to our to-read list… because if you are anything like Magan […]

Estelle - Ginger, I totally feel ya on that sentiment. I’m staring at the one I’m going to read and I’m just scared it’s not going to match up to all I have been reading and I would have wasted my time. Sometimes YAs are just so quick that it almost doesn’t matter if your time was wasted because it was only a day or 2, ya know? But I know I know I have to get my head out of the YA high school world sometimes or I’ll just personally go nuts.

Estelle - Jana, when I was writing about A SUMMER IN EUROPE, I immediately thought of you because you love travel so much. 🙂 Glad to know that I’m doing bad things to your wallet. What are friends for? 😉

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - I think I buy something new every time I read this feature! You are no good for me, Estelle! Or, well… my bank account. I just bought “A Summer in Europe”! We all knew that as soon as I saw the title, it pretty much didn’t matter what happened in the book. Thanks for the recommendation! I love this feature. (Or I hate it. :P)

February 9, 2012 - 3:28 pm

Ginger @ GReads! - The first two have really peaked my interest! However, I am always scared of reading adult books now b/c I am so used to the quickness of young-adult. I get bored too easily when they describe scenes for 5 pages. You know what I mean??

February 9, 2012 - 3:13 pm

VeganYANerds - I really like this feature, Estelle! It’s good to have a break from YA every now and then, I used to read more adult contemp. when I was a teen than I do now, so it’s time to get back into it.

I really like the sound of the first book, Friends Like Us, it’s going on my list!

February 9, 2012 - 2:08 pm

Daisy - I love this feature!! And Friends Like Us sounds really good, I’m definitely keeping an eye out for that one! 🙂

February 9, 2012 - 1:57 pm

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I love The Big Kids Table. It’s an awesome feature, despite adding to my EXTREMELY LONG book list. I’m particularly excited for Friends Like Us – sounds just up my alley!

The Big Kids’ Table: 5 Adult Contemporary Picks (January)

Estelle here! Hope all of you have dove into some good reading already this year. I just completed my fourth book last night and so far so good. But I’ve heard some murmurings on Twitter and even just my own about finding some good adult contemporary books to try out this year. If you remember from […]

Tanya Patrice - I love the cover to The Lost Daughter, and Other Waters sounds really intriguing too.

January 10, 2012 - 6:12 pm

Mands - I love taking a break from YA to read some books from different genres, I might add some of these to my to-read list 😉

January 10, 2012 - 10:52 am

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I love that you did this post! It gave me more books to add to my list of books to check out – and it’ll give me a great variety for the year.

January 10, 2012 - 10:03 am

Estelle - BC – Thanks for the comment! I just looked up More Like Her & people seem to really like it. I’m going to add it to my list too. I haven’t read any of Meg Cabot’s adult fiction yet but I’m going to have to look into it. (I should probably finish the Princess Diaries series first.) Thanks for the suggestions!!

January 10, 2012 - 9:59 am

Book Chic - Spin is on my TBR list as well since I got a random ARC of it. I also am looking forward to More Like Her by Liza Palmer (I have an ARC) and Meg Cabot’s upcoming new Heather Wells novel.
