Welcome to another day of New Adult August! We’re talking about all things New Adult throughout this month, and you can find out what we’ve shared so far and what to expect right here! So this is sort of an opinionated recommendation post. Not only am I going to be reccing books (already my opinion), but I’m also going to be explaining briefly why I don’t think they’re YA. Aaaand you’ll probably recognise a pattern. Also, just a note, but some of these books are in a series, and in some cases, the first in the series could pass for […]

#NAAugust: Review of How to Catch A (Falling) Star by Gabrielle Aquilina
