Cassie Mae's Blog Tour Top 3 NA's

Big THANK YOU to Theresa for letting me hang out.

Of course!  You're always welcome here. Now let's get started! I'm super excited to talk about our top three favorite New Adult novels. Since it's your blog tour I'll let you start us off.

New Adult has exploded the publishing industry. *KABLAMO!*
I’m a fan of many, and it was extremely hard to pick a top three, but here they are!

My Top Three New Adult Reads (so far, haha!)

Strength by Carrie Butler

Seriously… this was AH-MAZ-ING. And I want more NA books like this. Fantasy elements, romance, witty writing, laugh-out-loud moments, and a killer MC voice. And yanno, that super cute book boyfriend. Wallace (drool).  

This is on my TBR list! And that guy on the cover. Gorgeous!

My first pick is: Easy by Tammara Webber

I have one word for you: Lucas. I loved him. He was hot, sweet, mysterious and also super protective. Yet he wasn't protective in a controlling, creepy way like so many of the guys in books lately. He was protective in a way that you could respect and admire. The chemistry between him and Jacqueline practically jumped off the page and it had me reading into the late hours. 

Back to you Cassie. What's your next choice?

Never Again by Theresa Paolo
(That's me! Oh come on now. *blushes*)

I may be biased, but I don’t think so. I read this book before I really knew Theresa. This story made me cling onto her as a critique partner and make her promise to never let me go. (Haha, punny, but you have to read the book to get that inside joke.)

It’s on preorder too. Oh look, here’s the link for it :)

And Theresa, stop blushing and rolling your eyes. You know you’re awesome.

(Not really. But you know what is awesome? I 'm going to give you a sneak peek of my cover before the official reveal!) 

 Isn't it pretty?

Now I swear this is a coincidence! My second pick is:  

Friday Night Alibi by the awesome Cassie Mae!

Cassie Mae has a knack for developing characters who have you wanting to climb into the pages and become part of their world. Kelli is full of spunk and everything you want in a female lead. And Chase . . . well, he’s mine, ladies. Sorry, but I saw him first. (Honest, I really did) Friday Night Alibi is fearlessly hilarious and will have you hanging on to every word until the very end. Then you’ll want to flip right back to the beginning and start all over. You definitely will want to put this at the top of your to-be-read pile.

Cassie your third pick is???

Three Sides to a Circle by Jolene Perry and Janna Watts

This book was everything. Made me laugh and cry and do them both at the same time. It was about FRIENDSHIP, and gosh, I love a story about friends. Plus, one of the girl’s name is Honor, and that’s one of the best names I’ve read in a long time.
And the guy is so adorkable, I want to reach in the book and squeeze him :)

Just added it to my TBR list :)Now onto my number three. I actually was up in the air about my number three until I just finished reading it, no joke, ten minutes ago. 

Pick #3 True by Erin McCarthy 
There was so much emotion in this book and each time it took me by surprise. Just when you think things can't get any worse Erin McCarthy proves you wrong. My heart broke for Tyler and his situation and not just him either, for his family and what they were dealing with. Rory was quiet at times when I had wished she would've spoken up, but that only made her character more realistic. And even though I wanted to reach into the pages and shake her, I got it because I was her once.

So there are our top three NA’s!  

This was so much fun! Almost as fun as you reading to me on our 22 hour car ride from Minnesota to New York :) And now we want to know what are your top three fave NA books?

Oh! And don’t forget to check out my debut NA, FRIDAY NIGHT ALIBI ;)

Trust me, you don't want to miss this one!  

Cassie Mae is a nerd to the core from Utah, who likes to write about other nerds who find love. She’s the author of the Amazon Bestseller REASONS I FELL FOR THE FUNNY FAT FRIEND, and is the debut author for the Random House FLIRT line with her New Adult novels FRIDAY NIGHT ALIBI and SWITCHED. She also has a three book deal with Swoon Romance Publishing, including her book HOW TO DATE A NERD. She spends time with her angel children and perfect husband who fan her and feed her grapes while she clacks away on the keyboard. Then she wakes up from that dream world and manages to get a few words on the computer while the house explodes around her. When she’s not writing, she’s spending time with the youth in her community as a volleyball and basketball coach, or searching the house desperately for chocolate.
