Happy Monday, lovelies! I’m so glad I’m feeling better today. I spent the whole weekend in bed; away from social media, drinking tea, and enjoying a few books. Besides not being able to breathe normally, it wasn’t a bad weekend. I had planned another post for today, but it required me being outside, and that wasn’t going to happen. So I thought. Why not share some of the best books I read this past two months. With that, I bring you today, a new list of new adult fiction book recommendations.
The books I chose, are the latest ones that I rated with 5 stars on Goodreads. With time I’ve been getting really picky, so not all the books I read get 5 stars. My normal rating goes through 3 to 4 stars. So only the books that make me laugh, cry and connect with the characters, get the highest rating.
I hope you enjoy these new adult fiction book recommendations!

1. The Wall Of Winnipeg And Me by Mariana Zapata
Vanessa Mazur knows she’s doing the right thing. She shouldn’t feel bad for quitting. Being an assistant/housekeeper/fairy godmother to the top defensive end in the National Football Organization was always supposed to be temporary. She has plans and none of them include washing extra-large underwear longer than necessary.
But when Aiden Graves shows up at her door wanting her to come back, she’s beyond shocked.
For two years, the man known as The Wall of Winnipeg couldn’t find it in him to tell her good morning or congratulate her on her birthday. Now? He’s asking for the unthinkable.
What do you say to the man who is used to getting everything he wants?
This book was long, and at at the beginning a little slow. But every detail the author wrote was worth it. Because you actually believe how they get to together. You know the moment they start having feelings for each other. Not like others books where the relationships start out of nowhere… which makes the characters look fake and you can’t really relate.
Why is this book part of the new adult fiction book recommendations?
First, I loved the couple. They were real, funny and a perfect complement to each other. Reading how Aiden tries to show Vanessa his love was so sweet! Is something he doesn’t do a lot. But I can say he did a pretty good job.
2. A Girl Like Me (Like Us #2) by Ginger Scott
I’m not supposed to be here.
Death has come for me more than once, and each time it’s been a boy who’s stood between me and my final breath.
I called him Christopher when he saved me as a child. When he came into my life again, only months ago, I knew him as Wes. Just as he did the time before, he disappeared the moment he made sure I was out of harm’s way; as if I didn’t need anymore saving.
This time, though, death left me with a reminder of how powerful it is. I know it meant to strip me of my spirit again, but it failed.
Even so, I know I need Wes to survive. Our souls are woven together somehow, our every breath in sync. I feel it, even though everyone says I shouldn’t.
The world thinks he’s missing.
His loved ones don’t want to believe he’s dead.
Only I know just how special he is.
I’m going to find him and bring him home, where he belongs. Together, we’ll face impossible—we’ll rewrite our ending.
And when the bad guys come calling, we will always win.
I was a little lost at the beginning. Especially because I didn’t read the first book. So I would definitely recommend reading the books in order. But what captivated me the most, was the mystery in the first pages. I didn’t know what was going on, and the heroine was on a mission she was determined to accomplish. There was so much going on that I just kept reading.
It may not have all the romantic features I look in a new adult fiction book. But the connection between the main couple was enough to make me keep reading.
3. Say You Want Me (Return To Me #2) by Corinne Michaels
There’s no way I’ll fall for Wyatt Hennington.
He can keep his Southern drawl, irresistible smile, and those pick-up lines all to himself. I made the mistake of sleeping with him not once, but twice. I’m not stupid enough to give him round three, especially after he left me in the middle of the night so I could see myself out. I vow to return to Philadelphia and forget him.
It proves easier said than done.
When the doctor informs me I’m the winner of door prize number two, I put my life on hold and head back to Bell Buckle. Three months and if we can’t make this work, I’m gone.
The problem is—when the cards are stacked against us, and I can’t bring myself to leave him, I’ll finally know if he truly loves me or if all my fears were real…
Sometimes I prefer more the stories where the main couple already met. And this was the case. Angie is an independent woman, who has her own business and with her own mind. And Wyatt is a sweet playboy from a small town. They connected since the first time they met, but the two of them are too stubborn (and with different plans for their lives that they prefer to ignore it.
There was some drama in the book. And I have to admit, is something I really like (just in books though). I loved how the couple connected so well that it had to be part of the new adult fiction book recommendations.
4. Broken Dreams by Callie Anderson
Ethan is the boy who climbed into my bedroom every night.
He’s everything I love.
Laced with everything I despise.
He’s every happy memory.
And every shattered dream.
He’s my everything.
But he broke every part of me.
I’m supposed to hate him.
But I can’t.
I don’t know how.
This book was about a heartbreak. But not a normal one. It is in fact, about broken dreams. It is a beautiful story that brings you to the past, where the couple was happy. And the present, where the hero and heroine have to find their way to be back together.
Leslie and Ethan had the best relationship, the kind that not even after the worst, can be broken. That’s why the book made it to the new adult fiction book recommendations of this month. It was so well written, that the author made me feel everything the main characters were feeling too.
5. The Deal (Off-Campus #1) by Elle Kennedy
She’s about to make a deal with the college bad boy…
Hannah Wells has finally found someone who turns her on. But while she might be confident in every other area of her life, she’s carting around a full set of baggage when it comes to sex and seduction. If she wants to get her crush’s attention, she’ll have to step out of her comfort zone and make him take notice…even if it means tutoring the annoying, childish, cocky captain of the hockey team in exchange for a pretend date.
…and it’s going to be oh so good
All Garrett Graham has ever wanted is to play professional hockey after graduation, but his plummeting GPA is threatening everything he’s worked so hard for. If helping a sarcastic brunette make another guy jealous will help him secure his position on the team, he’s all for it. But when one unexpected kiss leads to the wildest sex of both their lives, it doesn’t take long for Garrett to realize that pretend isn’t going to cut it. Now he just has to convince Hannah that the man she wants looks a lot like him.
This was a book that made me laugh a lot. The personalities of the main characters, especially Hannah’s, make the book really fun to read. She’s super sweet and nice to everyone. While Garret is not really like that.
I loved how their relationship developed. They weren’t looking for love… but it’s exactly what they found.
