Do You Have Any Recommendations?

12 Nov

So, I was looking for a new book on my kindle the other day. I’ve been on this European Renaissance kick. And I’m still kinda on it, but I also wanted to see what else was out there, particularly for someone my age. I’m twenty-four. So I typed in the search bar, “new adult.” Guess what my results were?

Erotica. Fucking erotica. And more erotica. There were, like, four books that weren’t erotica. And I had already read three of them and am in the process of reading the fourth. Uhm, new adults like things OTHER than erotica, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!~

And if it wasn’t erotica, or one of the four books, it was a romance. I don’t particularly like romance. We like things other than romance, thank you. I like fantasy, too. I wanna read about 20-somethings saving the world from an evil sorcerer. I like reading about 20-somethings trying to figure out their lives, like I am. At least, I would like to read about that. That’d be nice. That might help me try to figure out my own life. God knows, I need all the help I can get.

Anyone know any good new adult like that? I found this website that has 65 books that I’m supposed to read as a 20-something, but most of them don’t sound very appealing to me. I want something modern. Something relateable. Even poetry is good. I love poetry. I just suck at it. Writing and reading it. But I try. And I appreciate. That counts for something, right?

Y’know what else I’m looking for? Good books about lesbian couples. I wanna write about lesbian couples, but I wanna do it right. I need to research. And I simply can’t find any good pieces about lesbian love. I have one piece of my own that, I dare to say, is quite good. But it’s only one little piece and I need to do more research to write a whole book involving it, y’know? Suggestions?

Also, if you know anything with abusive and/or unhealthy relationships. I’m always looking for those for my big piece, Birdie.

I’m also gonna ask, since I’m on this kick that I mentioned before, for historicals. Not all of them are Renaissance, but most of them are. I love reading about Elizabeth Tudor, Mary Stuart, her ladies in waiting, Mary de Guise, Diane de Poiters, Catherine de Medici, Catherine the Great, Sophie Dorothea (Catherine the Great’s daughter-in-law), Elinor of Aquitaine, Marie Antionette, Lady Jane Gray, the women of the War of the Roses, the wives of Henry VIII, and any other lovely lady you might think I’d be interested in learning about.

Let’s see… I guess that’s everything. I think I’m just trying to ramble, now. Ramble, ramble, ramble. Well, I hope y’all have a good day. And thanks in advance for any recommendations! Later!

    Hi there! I heard of this New Adult dilemma from Curiosity Quills, my publisher.
    Since you’re asking for suggestions, I have a New Adult series (Under the Blood Moon) that isn’t erotica. (I don’t actually even read erotica, so I certainly shouldn’t write it)
    It’s urban fantasy. Maybe you’d like it.
    The first book in the series, HOW TO DATE DEAD GUYS, is out now.
    I just signed the contract for the second.

And The Serendipitous Curse Series: Reborn, Reviled, Redeemed, NA paranormal, featuring reincarnation and Hoodoo. (Reborn is currently nominated for Best paranormal of the Year by BTSeMagazine and is currently .99cents.) Here is my website where you can read about them.
