Adult Fiction Books For Young Adult Fans


If you love reading YA books, but you’re also looking to expand your reading tastes, you are just in the right place! Or you might feel like you have outgrown the YA genre somewhat, but you don’t really know where to start when it comes to adult books. Either way, I understand you perfectly and that’s why I came up with this list of adult fiction books that can appeal to readers that aren’t quite familiar to the genre and they can also ease your transition from young adult books to adult books if that’s what you want. There is no better time to get into a new genre than right now as we have more time to read due to the current state of our world. Hopefully, you will be able to do just that with the books that I’m recommending right now!

10 Books To Read If You Like Mythology


This has been previously posted on The Nerd Daily.

Hi, everyone! Long time no see! I’ve been so busy lately with uni and beta reading that I have ended up neglecting the blog and writing in general. But no matter how long my hiatus is, I always come back one way or another – this time it has been so long since I’ve put down my bookish thoughts somewhere that it started feeling like a void, I missed doing something that I loved so much! I don’t know how often I’m going to post, but I know that I want to write more often than I’ve been doing lately!

My first post coming back is going to be focused on mythology retellings – I’m going to give you some recommendations that I hope you will enjoy! Without much further ado…

If You Like To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, Then Read…


Hello, everyone! I’m back with a recommendation post and the topic of this one is similar books to Jenny Han’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy. If you haven’t read the trilogy or at least watched the movie that’s on Netflix, I strongly recommend you stop what you’re doing and get on this wagon. It’s so popular for a great reason!

If you’ve already read the books and watched the movie, like I did, then you might be a bit hang up on those and maybe you’re looking for similar books to read. If that’s your case, then rest assured, I’ve got your back!

In my humble opinion, Jenny Han is the queen of fluff and her books always felt very relatable to me, in a way that not many books do. Even so, I’d attempt to recommend you a few books that have fluffy romances, the fake relationship trope (maybe in some cases, at least), a protagonist that you might relate to a lot and a love interest that is like Peter Kavinsky (sorry, there’s no other Peter Kavinsky).

Let’s get right into it!

Book Recommendations on Feminism


Hey, everyone! Another post in the series of ‘Marta is not here, she’s in exam hell, but she continues to write posts’ – I hope you all miss me, also don’t feel bad if I don’t answer to your comments. I’m going to do it as soon as I’m finished with exams.

Today I want to present you some of the books I’ve read and some of the books I want to read on feminism. You know how important this movement is to me and seeing so many books that focus on teaching the younger generations about feminism makes me genuinely happy.

Without further ado, let’s talk about my recommendations.

Halloween Reads


Hey, everyone! Today I will recommend you some creepy reads for this halloween. I have to mention that not all the books are going to be creepy, some of them will only be atmospheric or mysterious. I just want to present you some books that might put you in the right Halloween-ish mood. Let’s get right into it!



Everything by Gillian Flynn, but especially The Grownup and Dark Places since I feel like those incline more towards the horror genre, while her other books are more on the thriller/mystery side. Bonus : The Grownup is very short, only 64 pages long, so you will have time for other activities like going trick or treat.




Frankenstein is damn awesome. It’s quite an atmospheric book and it’s a classic tale of inventions gone totally wrong.Will not disappoint you.




Carrie is the only book I’ve read by Stephen King, but it was thrilling and very creepy, especially towards the end. I finished it at 3 a.m. and I was getting pretty paranoid by then. Also, if any of you is a huge fan of King and can recommend me what books of his to read next, I’ll be very grateful. Because I really don’t know where to go from here.



This is about a stalker doing questionable and creepy things, so you can see why it’s on my list. You will definitely give you the chills.




But really, The Secret History is a recommended read for any season, any celebration, anytime of the day. Just read this book if you like pretentious intelectuals, greek mythology, crime gangs, how to get away with murder and problematic faves.

Honorable mention : The Girl on Train by Paula Hawkins.



What are you reading this Halloween? Also, do you read creepier books around this time of the year or just go with whatever?


If You Liked That, Read This



Hey, guys! I’ve been working a lot on expanding my blog for you, I’m working with new designs (which is hard since I don’t have photoshop anymore), I’m trying out new ideas. And this week, I’m giving a chance to this type of recommendations. I really love those lists because I get lots of book recommendations, but it’s harder than I thought to put them together. I hope I didn’t fail you and that you’ll get some inspiration from this post. I won’t give detalied summaries of the books, but I’ll put the goodreads links, so that you can check them out yourself! (don’t say I don’t have your back *wink*)



  If you liked Captive Prince, then try The Foxhole Court, they both feature M/M romances and they are very character driven, hate-to-love story. Just check them out.





I feel like Genuine Fraud is the young adult/new adult version of Gone Girl. Check them out if you’re into mystery, murder and complex girls.





If you liked Since You’ve Been Gone, definitely try Juniper Lemon’s Happiness Index, they both have those happy feelings mixed with grief, longing and adventures.




I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for the pen-pal plot. These two books have it and they have the same fluffy factor too! If you liked P.S. I Like You, try Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda.




If you liked The Hating Game, definitely try Act Like It. Especially if you’re looking for witty banter and tension so thick that you can cut it with a knife.



Have you read any of the books mentioned? Did you like them?



LGBTQ+ book recommendations

I’ve been reading more and more diverse books lately and yet I feel like I’m not reading enough diverse books. Do you know the feeling? I think you do! However, I’ll present you some of my favourite books/series that feature LGBTQ+ characters! Maybe the list will be helpful to some of you, I know I adore to inspire my tbr list from other people’s recommendations. So, let’s begin!

  1. All for the Game series by Nora Sakavic – this series came as a surprise for me because I didn’t enjoy the first book that much! There was a lot of violence and I didn’t know why the characters behaved as strange as they did. I took a long time to warm up to Andrew and his gang’s problematic actions, but wow, the second and third book will blow you away. This book is very diverse, there’re gay characters, the protagonist is pansexual (?), the main relationship is a MxM one. Yes. Amazing! Go read it! Also, don’t judge the series by their covers. Thanks!
  2. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli – I guess I’m a little bit late to this party because I’m very bad with very hyped books, I read them only after the hype had died or the movie adaptation is coming up. I’m that person. This book is so great because the relationship between Simon and Blue is very well developed and it happens (most of it) online, through emails, but it’s still very deep and well-built. Loved it!
  3. Captive Prince series by C.S.Pacat – I adore those covers *heart eyes*. Excuse me and my totally embarrassing cover-lusting moment. I know this series has got a lot of bad reviews as of lately and I can understand them. But I still loved the books, they’re quite graphic and I understand why some people would find some parts unnecessary and too harming. But I feel like Pacat has been highly inspired by the Roman society and twisted some things here and there, but kept the atmosphere! But that’s perfectly okay if you don’t like this kind of thing, you should read things you’re comfortable with! Anyway, if you like the Roman Empire and hate-to-love relationships, this one is for you!
  4. Blue is the Warmest Color by Julie Maroh – I feel ashamed that I haven’t watched the movie yet, but that’s me. I can assure you that the graphic novel is amazing though! This is a book about two girls falling in love and the complications that come with it, and the author doesn’t shy away from presenting every aspect of the relationship and I thought that was amazing!
  5. Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour – This is fluff at its best, I also adored the film industry aspect and the mystery going on here! It was really cute!
  6. Gena/Finn by Hannah Moskowitz, Kat Helgeson – This is told through chats, texts and it’s amazing. It’s more focused on friendship, but it features a bisexual MC.
  7. The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller – Is there ever going to be a list where I don’t recommend this book? I don’t think so! This spins mythology and the Illiad in the greatest way possible, in this book Achilles and Patroclus are in love! (let’s be honest, we all got those vibes from mythology, didn’t we?)
  8. The Addicted series & Like Us series by Becca and Krista Ritchie – I should probably clarify some things here! In the original series (The Addicted series), there’s a character who’s pansexual, then in the Like Us series, which is more of a spin-off, we have a bisexual protagonist and a gay protagonist. I love these series so much especially because of how they treat feminism, family and friendships. And also, thank god for the amazing, supportive love interests that are so rare in the New Adult genre, but are so present in these books!
  9. Coffee Boy by Austin Chant – This is so great, especially since it’s a novella (I have a hard time connecting with characters in novellas, usually, but I really enjoyed this one!). The MC is a transexual and the love interest is bisexual and their love is very cuteee.
  10. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid – I won’t go too much into it because I’ve reviewed it a while ago, here on the blog and on goodreads. And also, because of spoilers. Anyways, it’s diverse and it’s amazing and you should check it out!

I think I will post my LGBTQ+ TBR sometime soon too, because there are many new releases that I’d like to read and also some books that have been out for a long time and I haven’t read yet (I’m looking at you, I’ll Give You The Sun).

What are some of your favourite LGBTQ+ books? How important do you think it is for us to read more diverse books? Tell me all about it in the comments!
