Top Ten “Grown Up” Books I’ve Recently Added to my TBR List


If you’ve read this blog before, you know I’m pretty obsessed with all things YA. I don’t think YA is just for teenagers, and when I was a teenager I read way more “grown up” books than I do now – so part of me rejects both categories. But to escape from that tangent, I’ve been reading more adult nonfiction and fiction this year and I like a lot of them. Not the way I like books about teenagers smooching, but I still I like them. Here are some so called “grown up” books that I’m hoping to read in the not-too-distant future. Let me know if you have suggestions on which to start with!

Thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting this weekly book meme!

  1. Mmm, I can’t WAIT for the Alexie memoir! I too read a lot more serious literature when I was an actual teen/young adult and now as a middle aged reading teacher read a ton of YA. But yes, sometimes I solid, thoughtful piece of work aimed at adults really hits the spot. Right now I’m listening to Americanah on my commute, and really enjoying the change of pace.

  2. Haha teenagers smooching. 😉 I am drawn to young adult as well. I need my cup of humor and adult doesn’t always have that. Magic for Beginners looks interesting.
