A few years ago, a new category of books emerged that was neither young adult nor classic (hardback or softback) fiction. New Adult books are written by adults with main characters that are in their 20s and 30s and feature the same angst and romance as many other teen or YA books.
The New Adult category is a category for stories that are considered to be for adults but have some elements of the YA genre. The term New Adult was coined in 2009 when the publishing world began to classify young adult literature as being "too old" for their target audience.
The New Adult category was introduced in early 2014, and it's now become synonymous with the YA genre. The categories are designed to reflect that every reader is a person of a certain age. This means that books in the New Adult category will feature a protagonist who has just graduated from high school or college, is between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five, and is still exploring life before settling down into adulthood.
Adult books are usually categorized as Young Adult (YA) and Adult. However, now a new category has been created in which New Adult books are falling into- the genre for adult readers who enjoy stories about characters 18 or older but younger than 30 years of age.
Audio book publishers are creating a new category in their stores for new adult readers. The New Adult category is marketed to readers between 18-30 years old.
The New Adult category is a subset of the Young Adult genre. It features stories that focus on characters in their 20s and 30s, typically with issues like sex and romance.
