It’s Becka Day on the Asiagoans Blog! Today’s Topic: New Adult Fiction
You know how you feel when you first go out into the Real World? Whether it be off to college, or off to your first professional job, or off to your first house that you bought with your first (and hopefully only) significant other?
How about that feeling when you buy your first vacuum cleaner? (the epitome of adultness, for sure)
You’re not really a kid anymore, but you don’t feel like a real adult yet. When you were a kid going through something new you could find a book to relate to. But where are all the books about first vacuum cleaner purchases, and the horror of that first house falling through because the sellers are greedy jerks? Where are the novels about that first day at the real job when you are bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and all your new co-workers have that sallow, been-sitting-under-fluorescent-lights-too-long look? They aren’t in the YA section. And they’re hard to find in the Adult section too.
